Phoenix Suns Betting
The Phoenix Suns dropped their last two games against two excellent teams: the Oklahoma City Thunder 111-107 and Milwaukee Bucks 129-108. After learning of another All-Star snub, Devin Booker has been firing from all cylinders recently as he recorded 32 points on 12-for-20 vs. the Mavs, 27 points on 9-for-18 vs. the Thunder and 32 points on 9-for-15 vs. the Bucks.
Players to Watch: Devin Booker (27.2 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 6.4 APG)
Kelly Oubre Jr. (18.5 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 6.7 APG)
DeAndre Ayton (17.9 PPG, 11.7 RPG, 1.8 APG)
Brooklyn Nets Betting
Just as when the Nets were starting to get their groove back, Kyrie Irving suffered a right knee injury that will keep him out for at least a week. It’s the second significant injury for Irving this season after missing a chunk of games because of a shoulder injury. Before he twisted his ankle in the game against the Washington Wizards, Irving erupted for 54 points on 19-for-23 shooting in a 133-118 win over the Bulls.
Players to Watch: Spencer Dinwiddie (21.5 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 6.5 APG)
Joe Harris (13.7 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 2.1 APG)
Caris Levert (13.3 PPG, 3.6 RPG and 3.2 APG)

Phoenix Suns vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks
NBA betting fun fact: the Suns will be playing their seventh road game against an Eastern Conference opponent. They are 3-3 in their six previous away games against East teams. The Nets are 4-4 at home against Western Conference opponents.
Moneyline: Back the Suns at +105. Booker has been a man on a mission the past few games and I believe he will be just too much for the Nets to handle. Moreover, Phoenix blew the Suns, 138-112, last November 10.
ATS: Pick the Suns to cover the spread. Phoenix is 4-6 ATS in their last 10 games but their big win over the Nets in their first meeting gives me more reasons that the Suns will win by more than 2 or 3 points.
TOTALs: Take the UNDER at 228 points. After dropping 133 points in a win against the Mavericks, the Suns scored 107 and 108 points in their last two games. The Nets have been proven to be a mediocre offensive squad without Kyrie Irving.
Score Prediction: 121 – 110 Nets
