Miami Heat vs Phoenix Suns 11/07/2019 Betting Odds
Miami Heat Betting
The Heat’s four-game winning streak got snapped in Denver, as the Nuggets smothered the visiting team to just 36 percent FG shooting in a 109-89 win two days ago. Jimmy Butler scored 16 points and grabbed 7 rebounds, while Kendrick Nunn added 11 markers. Miami Heat also shot poorly from beyond the arc (9-for-29) and the free-throw line (16-for-25) in that forgetful night.
Players to Watch: Kendrick Nunn (18.3 PPG, 2.1 RPG, 3.1 APG), Goran Dragic (15.1 PPG, 3.0 RPG, 4.6 APG), Jimmy Butler (15.0 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 6.5 APG)
Phoenix Suns Betting
The Suns’ remarkable start is slowly turning doubters to believers. ESPN analyst Max Kellerman said on First Take that he’s starting to believe Devin Booker is no longer an overhyped player. The star shooting guard is scorching hot through the first seven games, averaging 26.1 points on 53 percent FG shooting and 50 percent from beyond the arc. He’s also getting constant production from Kelly Oubre Jr. and Ricky Rubio, who has brought his unselfish brand of basketball to the desert.
Players to Watch: Devin Booker (26.1 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 5.0 APG), Kelly Oubre, Jr. (17.4 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 1.6 APG), Aron Baynes (15.0 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 3.6 APG)

Miami Heat vs Phoenix Suns Betting Picks
The Suns’ unexpected rise shouldn’t surprise anyone at all if you just valued more the hiring of Monty Williams. The veteran head coach has turned a stagnant offense to one of the most efficient in the NBA as Phoenix ranks No.2 in the league in assists per game (27.7) and No.8 in points per game (115.0). The Heat doesn’t fall behind as they rank No.3 in assists per game (26.4) and No.12 in points per game (113.7).
Moneyline: The Suns are in for a dogfight with the Heat on Thursday, though I expect Devin Booker to knock down key baskets late in the game, powering his team to a close win over the visiting team.
ATS: The Suns will improve their ATS record to 8-0 by the end of the night. Sure, Miami will keep the game close down to the final minute, but this game will still be decided by two or more points.
TOTALs: This game will go over the NBA over/under totals of 218.5 points. The Suns and Heat are two of the most explosive offensive teams in the NBA, and there’s no reason not to believe they are going to total more than 220 points in this game.
Score Prediction: 125-122 Suns
