Rockets vs Suns: NBA Betting Picks for Saturday Night Battle

The Houston Rockets, led by Alperen Sengun, are gearing up to take on Kevin Durant and the Phoenix Suns Saturday in Phoenix. This is the third meeting in the last week and a half with each team taking one game. The Suns won 110-105 on Thursday, while the Rockets took “Game 1” 114-110 last Friday.

The Rockets’ unexpected victory against the Suns saw them sealing an ATS win with a 114-110 win despite being the 2.5-point underdogs on their home court.

Take A Look At These Other 2 NBA Special Articles


Houston Rockets: +9 1/2 ATS (-110)

Bradley Beal’s likely return bolsters the Suns. It may also offset issues if Eric Gordon and Nassir Little sit out. Despite the Suns being the favorites, their questionable health and a 9. 1/2-point spread suggest value in a bet online for the Rockets.

The Rockets have a solid defensive record, contributing to their 4-1 ATS performance in recent matchups against the Suns and a 9-2 ATS record against Pacific Division teams. Although Booker presents a challenge, the Rockets’ depth, particularly from their second unit, should help them stay competitive.

I admit their defense has fumbled the ball in some recent games, but they are a skilled group that plays tenaciously on both sides.

Considering these factors, NBA betting on the Rockets to cover the 9.5-point spread is a sound decision.

Rockets vs Suns Player Prop: Devin Booker Over 26.5 Points (-113)

Devin Booker still plays second fiddle to Kevin Durant, but with 0.3 PPG separating their scoring averages, it’s a thin margin. Booker is seventh in the NBA in scoring at 27.6 PPG and ranks 11th in assists per game with 6.9.

I know the Rockets defense is good most of the time, but Booker crushed them on Thursday with 35 points in 39 minutes. Bet accordingly.

Questions of the Day

Are any key players sitting out for the Rockets or Suns?

There are no new injuries for the Rockets, with Tari Eason and Steven Adams out for the long term. Beal is expected back for the Suns, but Eric Gordon is questionable, and Nassir Little is doubtful for Saturday.

Are either team worth an NBA bet to win the Finals?

The Rockets (+50000) are not, but they are a young, up-and-coming team that could make noise soon. The Suns, however, are +1400 and, if they stay healthy, are a solid dark-horse team to make a run at it all.
