The NBA betting action continues Wednesday, March 30, 2022, with the Pacific Division battle at Chase Center in San Francisco, we bring you the best Suns vs. Warriors betting pick along with the latest odds update on MyBookie Sportsbook.
Phoenix and Golden State wrap up their four-game regular-season series. The Warriors lead 2-1 and look to clinch the set, opening as 6.5-point home underdogs for Wednesday night’s clash.
The Suns eye their ninth straight W
The Phoenix Suns improved to 61-14 straight up and 42-33 ATS on the season following a 114-104 victory to the Philadelphia 76ers this past Sunday. It was their eighth victory in a row, and the Suns beat the line for the seventh time in that stretch.
In his second outing since returning from a thumb injury, Chris Paul posted a double-double of 19 points and 14 assists. Devin Booker dropped 35 points on the 76ers, while Deandre Ayton recorded a 14-point, 12-rebound double-double.
Booker has been unstoppable as of late, averaging 33.0 points on 55.9% shooting from the field and 41.5% from downtown through his last eight outings. During that stretch, the Suns have recorded the second-best net rating in the NBA (+15.5), tallying 128.9 points per 100 possessions and yielding 113.4 in a return.
The Warriors lost three in a row
The Golden State Warriors (48-28; 36-36-4 ATS) are coming off a heavy 123-95 defeat at the Memphis Grizzlies this past Monday. They closed down a five-game road trip on a three-game losing streak, tallying their fifth defeat in the last six outings at any location.
The Warriors decided to rest Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Otto Porter, so they didn’t have enough firepower to deal with one of the best teams in the league. Jordan Poole led the way for the short-handed Dubs with 25 points and five rebounds, while Andrew Wiggins scored only ten points on a poor 5-for-15 shooting from the field.
Golden State is still missing Stephen Curry, who’s recovering from a foot injury, so Poole is starting at point guard. Over their last seven outings, the Warriors have registered the sixth-worst net rating in the NBA (-8.7), scoring 107.3 points per 100 possessions and allowing 116.0 in a return.
- 7-1 ATS in the last eight games overall
- 13-5 ATS in the last 18 games on the road
- 1-6 ATS in the last seven games overall
- 3-8 ATS in the last 11 games at home
Phoenix Suns vs. Golden State Warriors Picks
Although they’ve already clinched the best record in the NBA, the Suns should be fired up for Wednesday’s clash against the Warriors, who beat them twice in a row. Phoenix is playing in a rich vein of form, so the slumping Dubs will have to improve a lot in order to keep it close against the Suns.
Frankly, I don’t feel comfortable with a 6.5-point spread, but the Suns will hopefully continue to execute their offense at a high level. Phoenix has recorded a 2.44 assist-to-turnover ratio in its last eight games, and Golden State’s defense hasn’t impressed lately. Also, the Suns’ D should deal with the Curry-less Warriors.
Pick: Take Phoenix Suns -6.5 at -110
The Warriors have yielded 121 or more points in three straight outings. On the other side, the Suns have scored 125 or more in seven of their previous eight games overall. Neither team prefers to play at a slow pace, so I lean the over on the totals.
Seven of the Suns’ last nine games and three of the Warriors’ last four have gone over the total. On the other hand, the under is 10-2 in the previous 12 encounters between Phoenix and Golden State.
Pick: Go over 224.5 points at -110
