Suns 119, Hornets 104



The Suns (-500) should be able to win with ease on Wednesday, but taking them straight up isn’t advised at the current odds.

Against the spread

Despite it being a massive spread, SUNS -10.5 (-108) is the ideal choice in this matchup. Even though Durant will likely be on a minutes restriction for his debut, he should be a positive addition to an already-talented team.

The Suns are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss and they’ve defeated the Hornets by an average of 32 points in the last 3 meetings.


UNDER 228.5 (-115) is the pick in this game as the Hornets will struggle to score without Ball on the floor. The Suns are also 8th in defensive rating this season.

Phoenix is 5-1 to the Under in its last 6 road games while Charlotte is 5-0 to the Under in its last 5 games following a win and 4-0 to the Under in its last 4 games overall.
