Suns vs Nets Over/Under Pick: Over 232½ (-105)

The Nets come off a 147-point effort in downing the Utah Jazz, so the points could flow freely against the Suns.

We are never overly impressed with the Suns’ defense, which is sporadic at best. Therefore, we’re including over 232½ in our betting online selections for this game.

Betting trends favor the over, so follow it should hold true.

Suns vs Nets ATS Pick: Nets +3½ (-110)

The Nets once had a much better ATS record, but they went through a rough patch.

However, after posting consecutive victories, we’re happy to back them at +3½ with a home-court advantage.


Vegas NBA odds has a fair line for Nets’ bettors. They destroyed the Jazz 147-114 last time on court, so they’re full of confidence.

The Suns aren’t the most consistent team in the NBA. They have a horrible ATS record, and we don’t see that improving anytime soon.

Suns vs Nets Player Prop Pick: Mikal Bridges Over 23½ Points (124)

Mikal Bridges is a solid two-way player, and we think he could have a good scoring night against a suspect Suns defense.

Bridges averages 21.9 points per game, so he needs to exceed his average. However, there should be plenty of offense on display.

That could be enough to see Bridges be the Nets’ top scorer, and he comes off a 33-point performance against the Jazz.

When the Nets last met the Suns (116-112 win), Bridges scored 21 points, and he has improved since then.

Questions of the Day

Will the Nets’ defense slow Kevin Durant and Devin Booker?


The Nets won the first meeting against the Suns, so we have no doubt they’re good enough to beat the Suns and slow down their best scorers.

Will Durant and Booker combine for 60 points vs the Nets?


We expect a high scoring contest, so Kevin Durant and Devin Booker have a good chance to score 30 points a piece.
