The Warriors have reeled off seven consecutive victories and come into this one with the best record and point differential in the NBA – and yet, they’re still slight underdogs against a host Suns team that has fashioned an historic 16-game winning streak.

Warriors vs. Suns NBA Betting Odds

Tuesday’s showdown is must-see TV for several reasons, most notably the fact that these teams are a combined 35-5 to open the season. Yet, while the Suns’ sensational start isn’t that big a surprise to most (they’re a modest 11-9 ATS to open the campaign), the Warriors have exceeded all expectations – including those of the oddsmakers (15-4-1 ATS). The Warriors have covered in seven straight, and are 4-2 ATS in the last six head-to-head meetings.

It’s no surprise that the total for Tuesday’s game is on the higher side by today’s NBA standards at 220, given that Golden State and Phoenix rank 1-2 in points per game this season. And yet, the Warriors are an unfathomable 14-6 to the Under so far (thanks primarily to a league-best scoring defence) while the Suns also lean toward the Under at 11-9. And these clubs have come in below the total in five consecutive encounters in Arizona.

Golden State Warriors

We have a front-runner in the race for the NBA’s Most Valuable Player – and if you’ve been paying any attention at all, you know the name. Stephen Curry is listed at +136 on Sports Interaction to win his third career MVP award and first since 2016; he leads runners-up Kevin Durant (+499) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (+734), the only other players south of +1000 entering Tuesday. Curry averaged just 24 points in two meetings with Phoenix in 2020-21.

Phoenix Suns

The Suns don’t have an MVP favourite (Devin Booker is the highest-listed Phoenix player at +3942), but as they did last year, they’re leaning heavily on a balanced effort to prevail. Six Suns players average 10+ in scoring, led by Booker (23.9), while they also have double-digit rebounders (DeAndre Ayton, 11.5) and assist men (Chris Paul, 10.1). Additionally, they own the league’s top shooting percentage (48.1), slightly ahead of the runner-up Warriors (47.9).
