Phoenix Suns Betting

The Phoenix Suns are one of the hottest teams in the NBA and they have won five of their last six matches. Their latest match was an eight-point victory over the Toronto Raptors, 123-115 and it was a good bounce-back win from the loss against the Los Angeles Clippers. Devin Booker looks to be going on the next level leading the team with 24 points, six assists, and went 90% from the free-throw line. He got help mainly from veteran forward Jae Crowder who provided 21 points and six three-pointers. The Suns are gluing together as five other players also scored in double-figures.

Detroit Pistons Betting

The Detroit Pistons look stuck and entered another losing streak in just the first 8 games of the season. This team is coming in with a three-game losing streak and lost to the mighty Milwaukee Bucks twice. Their recent matchup was lost by a wide margin of 15 points, 115-130. Jerami Grant led the team with a double-double of 31 points, 10 rebounds and went perfect from the free-throw line with 11 shots. Saddiq Bey looks like the steal of the NBA draft with 20 points and 10 boards while Wayne Ellington and Derrick Rose combined for 22 points. No other Piston came up with double-figure scoring.
