This upcoming battle with the Golden State Warriors is going to be one of their biggest challenges yet, though. Golden State is 18-3 on the season and have gotten a couple of rest days after losing to the Suns back on November 30th. That loss broke a seven-game winning streak for Golden State. Will the Warriors get their revenge or can the Suns somehow stretch this streak all the way to 19 games?

Golden State is a 7-point favourite to win on the NBA odds, with a total of 216.5.

Suns vs. Warriors NBA Betting Odds

The Suns are 11-5 against the spread in their last 16 games overall and 16-5 ATS in their past 21 games played on a Friday. The spread hasn’t been nice to them when coming into the second game of a back-to-back, as they are just 1-4-1 ATS under those circumstances. Phoenix has seen the under go 6-1-1 in their last eight games when entering the contest as the underdog.

On the other hand, the Warriors are undefeated against the spread in their last six games played on a Friday. Golden State has also been able to win nine of their last 10 games against the spread when going up against teams with a winning road record.

Phoenix Suns

One of the big stories here is that Devin Booker won’t be active for this game against the Warriors after he suffered a hamstring strain. He missed the second half against the Warriors a few days ago and the Suns still pulled away with a win, so they should feel confident. Phoenix relied heavily upon their defence in the last matchup and it worked out. They held Steph Curry to 4-of-21 shooting and only gave him one free throw. Phoenix owns the seventh-best defence in the league in terms of points-per-game allowed and that game was a beautiful example of it. Everything is clicking right now for the Suns but a road trip to Golden State could cool them off.

Golden State Warriors

Outside of that horrible shooting night a few days ago, Steph Curry is still undoubtedly a leading candidate for the MVP award. The point guard is averaging 27.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 6.6 assists per contest for the Dubs. However, with how much attention he was given in the last matchup with the Suns, other players on the roster will need to step up here. Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole are the two guys that they lean on offensively when Steph isn’t on the court. Poole has shown flashes of incredible scoring potential with his 18.5 points per game, but the consistency hasn’t been there at all. The Warriors have one of the best all-around rosters in the league and will have home-court advantage this time around. That will probably be the difference – especially with Booker out.
