After suffering their first loss of the season after a historic 24-0 start, the Warriors will look to start a new streak when they host the Suns at Oracle Arena. The Warriors have won four straight vs Phoenix which includes a 135-116 victory in late November.
It’s certainly not a shock to see the Warriors open as double digit favorites in this one, as the line opened at -12.5. Golden State has covered in five of their last six games vs the Suns and six of their 10 home wins have come by double digits.
The Suns have struggled on the road this season, posting a 4-9 SU record. They’ve also struggled against other Western Conference teams, going 1-7 SU and 2-6 ATS in their last eight vs Western Conference opponents.
The game opened with a total of 219.5 which is the highest total of any NBA game tonight. The high number shouldn’t come as a surprise as Golden State leads the NBA in points per game, while Phoenix is fourth. The Warriors have seen the total go OVER in eight of their last nine games, while the Suns have gone OVER in four straight after losing the previous game in a matchup.
