Phoenix Suns DFS Spin

Devin Booker hit 14-of-27 shots and a 3-pointer for 31 points, six rebounds, five assists, a steal and zero turnovers in 40 minutes of Tuesday's overtime win against the Cavaliers. Booker, Mikal Bridges, Deandre Ayton, Chris Paul and Frank Kaminsky all hit double digits in the scoring column for the Suns as they ran away from the Cavs in overtime. They play in Altanta on Wednesday night and it will be interesting to see if the Suns run the starters big minutes in that one after everyone played a ton of minutes tonight. Given that the Suns now hold the No. 1 seed in a tie breaker over the Jazz in the West, there's a good chance they keep trying to win every game in hopes of securing the No. 1 seed heading into the playoffs.

Atlanta Hawks DFS Spin

Danilo Gallinari hit 9-of-15 shots and seven 3-pointers for 28 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 32 minutes of Monday's big win over the Blazers. This was his best game since he scored 29 with five triples back on March 16 and he bounced back nicely after Saturday's nine-point dud. And while none of his stats were even season highs tonight, he and Bogdan Bogdanovic both stepped up on a night when Trae Young's 3-point shot wasn't falling.

Suns vs. Hawks Betting Prediction

The under is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings between these two teams and is 6-1 in the last seven meetings in Atlanta. The under is also 5-2 in the Hawks’ last seven games as an underdog, is 7-3 in their last 10 games when facing an opponent like the Suns that has a winning record and is 6-2 in their last eight games coming off a win.
