Phoenix Suns vs Atlanta Hawks 1/14/2020 Betting Odds
Phoenix Suns Betting
The Phoenix Suns are now getting their act straight and getting some chemistry going after starting the season with a long suspension to DeAndre Ayton. For past games, Ayton has been the double-double threat that he is built to be while Ricky Rubio provides the control at the point guard position. Devin Booker is still one of the most prolific scorers in the game right now that guarantees at least 25 points per game. Kelly Oubre deserves some credit as well and has become the second-best scorer behind Booker. The Suns hope to turn things around this season and they want to improve on their road record. Against the Hawks, they have more firepower to boast.

Atlanta Hawks Betting
This team has been all Trae Young this season and the moment he sits on the bench, the team decelerates and the Hawks’ coaching staff have a hard time giving him some rest. It is live-and-die with Trae Young but there are not much help being given to him. Like Ayton, John Collins served a long suspension and it is just in the past games that he and Trae Young are getting their in-game chemistry together. Against the Suns, their inconsistency will be their problem and once Booker and Rubio get Young busy, that will be the start of the Hawks going down. Other players need to step up but it has been inconsistent on who will come out to play.
Players to Watch: J. Collins PF 14 GP 14 GS 30.5 MIN 17 PTS 2.1 OR 7.6 DR 9.7 REB 1.6 AST 0.8 STL 2.1 BLK 1.6 TO 3.1 PF 1 AST/TO 19.74 PER
