Sometimes, persistence can take you far. Despite our awful 0-3 start on our daily parlays and going 4-5 on our individual picks, we had a clean sweep last night and hit our daily parlay thanks to the OKC Thunder (-169) and Colorado Avalanche (+100) winning on the moneyline, while the Tampa Bay Lightning covered a -1.5 goal spread (+125). We’re now 1-3 in our daily parlays but 7-5 on our individual picks.
We’re taking our winning ways back to a single-game parlay today and focusing on the Brooklyn Nets and the struggling Phoenix Suns.
Brooklyn Nets over Phoenix Suns (-120)
The Phoenix Suns have not been the same without Devin Booker. Booker and six other players are listed as out, with Booker unlikely to return until the end of the month. Brooklyn has their injury issues to deal with Kevin Durant out with a knee injury, and Kyrie Irving listed as probable. Irving’s status is bringing these odds closer than they should be.
Phoenix has lost three-straight games and nine of the last ten games overall. Brooklyn is riding a three-game losing streak, including losses to Boston, OKC, and San Antonio, but has won six of the last ten.
The statistical advantages are all slanted toward Brooklyn, although the Nets’ dynamic will change dramatically with Kyrie Irving in the lineup. Still, we think Brooklyn will do enough to win this game.
Brooklyn Nets -1.5 over Phoenix Suns (+100)
The Nets are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Phoenix. Phoenix is 2-3 ATS in the last five games, while Brooklyn is 1-4 ATS in the last five.
However, we’re taking Brooklyn to win on the money line and think they will win this game by at least two points.
Brooklyn Nets vs. Phoenix Suns – Under 221.0 (-115)
The under is 6-0 in the Nets’ last six games and 5-0 in the last five games when an opponent gives up over 100 points in their previous game. The under is 4-0 in the Suns’ last four games, while the Suns are 0-4 ATS in the last four home games.
However, Phoenix has played up to their competition, with the over going 6-1 in the last seven games against teams with a winning record. The Nets have hit the under in six straight games.
With no Devin Booker and potentially no Kyrie Irving, both teams will score 100 points, but we don’t think they will combine to hit the total points of 221.0.
