Suns vs. Mavericks, 8:30 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Suns +2.5
The Suns have won 10 straight regular season games against the Mavericks, so it’s hard to pick against them in this series. Devin Booker has been on fire lately, averaging 36.6 points per game in his last five. Meanwhile, the Mavericks have gone 2-3 in their last five. Even with Phoenix coming off a game Sunday, the Suns should keep this thing close to at least cover.
Over/Under: Under 221.5
The last seven games of this matchup in the regular season have gone under this total. Both these teams have figured each other out a bit and even with Booker’s current play, the under seems like the safer trend to back for this game.
