Phoenix Suns Betting

The Phoenix Suns are coming to this matchup holding a 51-13 record and they are the first team to reach 50 games this season. This team is very much above the competition as the second-best team, Memphis Grizzlies trails them by a wide margin of eight games. Chris Paul is going to be out for a significant amount of time and may come back a few games before the season ends. Nonetheless, the team’s chemistry is still intact with Cameron Johnson filling in for the injured point guard. Devin Booker has been carrying the team and he is getting help from the interior with DeAndre Ayton manning the paint.

Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic are currently the worst team in the NBA Eastern Conference right now and they are tied with the Houston Rockets for the league’s worst record at 16-49. This team is very much looking for another lottery pick in the upcoming NBA draft and they are on pace to pick at least in the top four with their current record. The youth movement of the Magic needs more firepower and winning is definitely not a priority at this point. Wendell Carter Jr. has been the team’s most consistent contributor in the paint and he is expected to be sidelined in this matchup with the Phoenix Suns.

Players to Watch: C. Anthony PG 51 GP 51 GS 33 MIN 17.4 PTS 0.5 OR 5.2 DR 5.7 REB 5.7 AST 0.8 STL 0.3 BLK 2.8 TO 2.7 PF 2.1 AST/TO 14.03 PER
