The NBA’s Week 8 begins Monday, December 6 with ten games around the league, including the Western Conference showdown at Footprint Center in Phoenix. Here are the best Spurs vs. Suns betting pick and odds for last season’s meeting.
On November 22, 2021, the Suns outlasted the Spurs 115-111 as 5.5-point road underdogs in San Antonio. This time around, the home squad is favored by Arizona gambling sites, which is seeking for its fourth consecutive triumph over San Antonio.
Following a surprising 112-107 road victory over the Golden State Warriors on Saturday, the San Antonio Spurs improved to 8-13 SU and 12-9 ATS on the season. Playing as 9.5-point road underdogs, the Spurs dominated the Dubs for most of the game to extend their winning run to four games.
The Spurs almost lost when they were ahead. They scored only 13 points in the fourth quarter and won anyway. Derrick White had 25 points, Dejounte Murray had 22, and Lonnie Walker IV had 21.
The Spurs have had a lot of games where they did not allow many points. They give up 10 more points than the other team, but the other team has more shots. The Spurs are in the top 20 teams of shooting from 3 point range, and they average 107 points allowed per game.
The Phoenix Suns’ 18-game win streak ended last Friday. They lost to the Golden State Warriors. It was 118-96 and they did not cover the 7 points.
The Phoenix Suns missed Devin Booker (hamstring) and that was a huge blow to the team. The Warriors had a tough defense, and the Suns made only 38% of their shots and missed nine free throws. Deandre Ayton scored the most with 12 points.
Ayton had 23 points and six rebounds against the Dubs and Booker is hurt, so Ayton will play more. He has averaged 17.3 points and 11.0 rebounds in his last ten games.
The Suns have won three times, but they only covered once of those games. San Antonio is on a four-game winning streak and beat Golden State on the road.
The Spurs should try to keep the Suns low in this game because Booker, one of their important players, is not in it.
The Spurs are scoring less than 108 points per 100 possessions. They also take the fewest shots from 3-point range in the whole NBA.Phoenix is an offensive-minded team, ranking in the top 10 in points per game (106.9), field goal percentage (48.0 percent), assists per game (23.3) and free throws attempted per game (18). The Suns are first in the NBA in field goal percentage (48.0%) while scoring 111.2 points.
Both teams average about 100 possessions per 48 minutes. Six of their last eight games went over the total, including the previous three. The totals are a trick to figure out because San Antonio has been playing better defense lately, and Phoenix has the second-best defense in the league and allows 104.7 points per 100 possessions.
