NBA FREE PICK: Suns +8.5

Phoenix vs. Orlando, 03/21/2012 19:00
Point Spread: +8½/-107 Phoenix

NBA FREE PICK: Suns +8.5

This may seem like the perfect spot to jump on the Magic after an embarrassing 59-85 loss at home to the Bulls on Monday, but I believe the oddsmakers are ahead of the game an have inflated this line. The Magic are just 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games after scoring less than 75 points in their previous game.

While the Suns weren't a great team to start the season, they come in having won 11 of their last 15 overall. They nearly went on the road and beat the Heat last night, but Miami went on a 17-0 run late to win by 4-points.

Phoenix also has plenty of motivation to play well in Orlando. They haven't won on the Magic's home court since 2007. I'm not saying they will win this game, but I expect a very close game that could go either way in the 4th quarter.

Phoenix is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog, and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. BET THE SUNS!
