Brooklyn Nets at Phoenix Suns Betting Odds

In the Nets’ last matchup, they defeated the Portland Trail Blazers, 119-115, despite being 3.5-point underdogs. The Suns, on the other hand, were defeated by the Miami Heat, 124-108, and were not able to cover as 1.5-point underdogs. The Brooklyn game went 6.5 points under the projected point total of 240.5, while the Phoenix game finished 11.5 points over the projected point total of 220.5.

Brooklyn dominated nearly every facet of the game. They had a solid offensive rebounding percentage of 31.4 (above their season average of 25.7) and a turnover percentage of 7.4 (better than their season average of 15.6). Portland put up marks of 27.1 and 8.5, respectively, for those same stats. Phoenix, on the other hand, held Miami to an offensive rebounding percentage of 14.3 (below their season average of 21.9). Ricky Rubio had a good game for Phoenix, putting up 11 points, 11 rebounds and six assists. Brooklyn rallied around Spencer Dinwiddie, who finished with 34 points and five rebounds.

The Nets dominated this series last year, winning both games. In the last game, Brooklyn won 111-103. Getting to the free throw line was one of Brooklyn’s biggest advantages. They made 33 trips to the line, while Phoenix went just 16 times.

Of the Nets’ eight games, four have finished over, three have finished under and one has pushed. Brooklyn comes into the game with records of 4-4 straight up (SU) and 3-5 against the spread (ATS).

Of the Suns’ 8 games, 5 have finished under the total. Moreover, Phoenix is 5-3 SU and 7-1 ATS.

This has potential to be a sloppy game for the offense of Brooklyn. Dating back to the 2018-19 season, Brooklyn ranks 18th in the league in ball protection (turnover percentage of 14.0 percent), while the disruptive defense of Phoenix has forced the fifth-most turnovers in the league (14.9 percent).
