The Phoenix Suns are set to wrap up Saturday’s NBA action in a Western Conference matchup against the San Antonio Spurs. The Suns are big-time favorites, and only the Utah Jazz have a better record this year, but the Spurs could put up a good fight as other underdogs have in recent weeks. Let’s take a look at the best betting options at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Spurs vs. Suns, 10:00 p.m. ET, NBA League Pass

Pick ATS: Spurs +10

The Suns are undoubtedly one of the most well-rounded teams in basketball, but they haven’t done a great job covering the spread when as major favorites. Phoenix is 7-6 against the spread when favored by at least 9 points. The Spurs have covered in nearly 52% of their games this year. The Suns have failed to win by double-digits against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets, and Sacramento Kings in their last 10 games, so I like the visitor’s chances to prevent a blowout.

Player prop pick: Mikal Bridges O1.5 3-pointers(+130)

Bridges is a premier 3-and-D player and is converting his shots from beyond the arc at a 40% clip. His shot volume comes and goes, but he’s made two or more threes in 25 games this season. Teams don’t knock down a ton of threes against the Spurs, but opposing teams are shooting nearly 38% from deep against San Antonio. Bridges has attempted five or more threes in five of his last 10 games. Following up his latest 3-for-6 outing from long range with confidence could help him hit this prop early. Especially because the Spurs should be much weaker defensively at small forward with DeMar DeRozan (rest) taking the day off.
