Suns Trending in Wrong Direction

Suns Morris Love Cavaliers

After losses to the Warriors and Trail Blazers, the Cavaliers’ holiday road trip continues tonight in Phoenix against a Suns team that has four SU losses in a row and a 1-6 ATS record over its last seven games.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 10-1 ATS in the last 11 games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Suns' last five games after consecutive ATS losses.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 14 of the Cavs' last 19 games after consecutive losses.

The Cavs have been far from a good bet on the road this season, posting a 4-8 road ATS record over their last 12 games. They’re coming off a 29-point beatdown at the hands of the Trail Blazers, which is by far their worst loss of the season.

This should be a good opportunity for the Cavs to turn things around, however, as it looks like the Suns have hit rock bottom. Their best player, Eric Bledsoe, is now on the shelf for six-to-eight weeks with a knee injury, and they’ve undergone a major transformation on their coaching staff after canning two assistants. As bad of a bet that Cleveland has been on the road, Phoenix has been worse at home, going just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games.

The total for this one opened at 202 and both teams are trending UNDER. The Cavs have gone UNDER in five straight road games, while the Suns have gone UNDER in five of their last six games at home. The teams played twice last season with the total going UNDER both times.
