The Phoenix Suns (32-28) will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder (28-30) in a Friday night game at the Footprint Center. As sports handicappers, we’ve analyzed the pre-game information, examined the odds and offered our NBA selections and forecasts. 

So, without further ado, let’s delve into the details of the game.

Injury List:

The Thunder have not yet filed any injuries, while the Suns may be without F Kevin Durant, who is stretching his leg, and G Landry Shamet, whose foot is in doubt.

Prediction:

We predict the Suns will emerge victorious with a final score of 115-109 against the Thunder. This may not be a blowout win for the Suns, but we expect them to have a comfortable lead throughout the game.

Moneyline:

The moneyline in this game is not lucrative for the Suns at 2.7 times the risk. Therefore, it may not be worth taking a chance with the moneyline.

Against The Spread:

We recommend betting against the spread, where the Thunder are +6.5 (-105). Oklahoma City has been profitable against the odds this year, with a 35-21-2 ATS record. They have also been performing well in their last few games, where they are 5-4-1 ATS in their previous ten games. The Suns’ lack of F Kevin Durant may make it easier for the Thunder to remain in the game. While Phoenix is only 4-6 ATS as a 5-7-point favourite, OKC is 9-5-1 ATS this season as a 5-7-point opponent.

OVER/UNDER:

We suggest taking the UNDER 230.5 (-108). In the last three games played by both teams, the Under is 5-0. Phoenix has a strong defense, placing fifth in the league regarding opponent points per game (111.3) and eighth in the opponent field goal percentage (46.7%). Moreover, in the Suns’ last eight games, after three or more days of recovery, the Under is 6-2. In their last 6 Friday games, the Under is also 5-1.

Conclusion:

To summarize, we predict that the Suns will win with a final score of 115-109 against the Thunder. Betting against the spread with the Thunder at +6.5 (-105) may be a good option, and we suggest taking the UNDER 230.5 (-108) as the game’s total points. However, it may not be worth taking a risk with the moneyline.
