UNDER is Cashing When Suns & Wizards Get Together

The Phoenix Suns may seem like a team that has nothing to play for at this point of the season, but don’t tell that to Tyler Ulis. The rookie point guard scored a season-high 20 points including the game-winner vs the Boston Celtics on Sunday, as the Suns’ recent injection of youth has them looking like a different team right now. Phoenix hosts Washington tonight, where oddsmakers initially set the Wizards as 3.5-point road faves with an OVER/UNDER of 225.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Wizards are 6-16 SU in their last 22 games on the road against the Suns.
  • The Suns are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games against the Eastern Conference.
  • The Wizards are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games on the road.

The Wizards, who occupy the third spot in the Eastern Conference, avoided back-to-back setbacks on Sunday thanks to recent acquisition Bojan Bogdanovic. Bogdanovic exploded for 15 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Wizards to a 115-114 triumph over the lowly Orlando Magic. Tonight’s game marks the first contest of a five-game road trip against Western Conference opponents for Washington.

In the last meeting between these teams on November 21, Bradley Beal had one of his best games of the season. The shooting guard erupted for 42 points in Washington’s 106-101 home win.

The UNDER has been a great bet when these teams have gotten together, as seven of the last eight meetings between the Suns and Wizards have gone UNDER the total.
