Nets vs. Suns, 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT
Pick ATS: Suns -4
The line for Tuesday night’s game is currently set at four points, with the Suns surprisingly being favored at home. If the Nets had Durant available for Tuesday night’s game, then the spread might be closer. However, the Suns have been dominant against the spread in their six games with a perfect record of 6-0. Phoenix is also 10-4 against the spread at home this season and 7-0 in their last seven home games.
Phoenix enters Tuesday night’s game at full-strength, which is always good news. Devin Booker has played extremely well during Suns’ current winning streak. He is averaging 20.5 points, 5.7 assists, and 4.8 rebounds per game. Booker is also shooting 54.7 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from behind the arc. Him along with Chris Paul will try to outplay the duo of Irving and Harden, who were a two-man wrecking crew against the Kings. Irving scored 40 points (15-22 FG, 9-11 3pt), while Harden recorded a triple-double consisting of 29 points, 14 assists, and 13 rebounds.
The Nets are 3-2 against the spread in their last five games but only have a record go 5-8 ATS away from the Barclays Center. This season, Brooklyn is 1-4 against the spread in the second game of a back-to-back.
