Suns vs Rockets Pick ATS: Phoenix Suns -4 1/2 (-110)

Despite Bradley Beal likely sitting for Phoenix and the Rockets getting home court, the Suns should still be able to cover the spread.

Phoenix is the stronger team, with its offense one of the best in the league. The Suns are 12th in the NBA averaging 117.5 points a game while their 49.8% field-goal percentage is third, and in their last five games, they have averaged 120 points on 50.1% shooting.

Though the Rockets are supposed to be one of the stronger defensive teams, ranking in the top 10, they have slipped recently, allowing three of their last five opponents to score over 120 points.

Houston has lost six of seven, with its offense struggling, averaging 108.4 points in those seven games. With how the Rockets have been playing, and their likely inability to keep up with Phoenix’ offense, the Suns should be able to cover the close spread.

Suns vs Rockets Player Prop Pick: Devin Booker Over 28.5 Points (-108)

With Beal expected to be sidelined for the second game in a row, Booker will have to step up with another big game for the Suns to get it done on the road. Booker had 35 points in the game prior, however Phoenix fell short to Dallas.

Booker is second on the team in scoring, averaging 27.7 points a game, and disregarding the game against Detroit in which he was ejected early, he has scored at least 29 points in three of his last four games.

He has also been stronger on the road than he has been at home, averaging 29.9 points away. In his first game against Houston, Booker scored 20 points. With Booker needing to add a little extra scoring without Beal and the Rockets’ defense struggling recently, expect him to have another big night.
