BROOKLYN NETS VS. PHOENIX SUNS PREDICTIONS

After finishing second in the West with a record of 51-21 SU last year, Phoenix kept that same ball rolling with another strong start to this season, as the Suns opened with a solid 27-8 SU and 18-17 ATS run – with 18 of those victories coming by 10+ PTS.

The Suns have cranked things up a notch recently though, considering Phoenix enters Tuesday riding an impressive 13-1 SU and 9-5 ATS stretch – while generating 115.7 PPG offensively and surrendering 104.9 PPG defensively during that timeframe.

On the other hand, Brooklyn also stormed out to an excellent start to the season, as the Nets kicked things off with a sturdy 26-14 SU run – with 15 of those victories coming by eight points or more.

The last few weeks have been incredibly shaky without Kevin Durant though, considering the Nets have scored just 110 PPG at home compared to 115.5 PPG on the road across their latest 3-6 SU skid – which seems to primarily stem from the inconsistent participation of Kyrie Irving.

I’ll lay the points with Phoenix here, as the Nets have lost six-of-nine games since KD’s latest injury, while averaging just 113 PPG offensively and allowing 116 PPG defensively during that timeframe – setting the stage for a tough road matchup against a Suns squad that’s scored 115+ PTS five times across their current ten-game win streak (116 PPG).

BROOKLYN NETS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 29-20
  • ATS: 20-28-1
  • O/U: 23-26

After stumbling out to a surprisingly rocky 2-3 SU start to the season, the Nets quickly settled into a rhythm during the early stages of November, as Brooklyn now boasts a sturdy record of 29-20 SU – yet still rank near the bottom of the barrel ATS at 19-29-1.

Brooklyn’s struggles have quickly amplified since Durant’s latest injury though, considering the Nets are just 3-6 SU across their last nine games, which includes a 2-3 SU tally in road matchups with Irving – and a 1-3 SU mark in home matchups without him.

PHOENIX SUNS BETTING ANALYSIS

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 40-9
  • ATS: 27-22
  • O/U: 21-27-1

After battling Utah for the conference crown all the way through the final day of last year’s regular season (51-21 SU), Phoenix was surprisingly rusty to start the new season, as the Suns lost three of their first four games out of the gate – while scoring 107 PTS or less in three of those contests (106.3 PPG).

Clearly, Phoenix just needed a few days to warm up though, considering the Suns boast records of 37-6 SU and 25-18 ATS since that four-game opening skid, while ranking 3rd in the league in both scoring and offensive efficiency (112.9 PPG, 1.101 OE) – and on the flipside, ranking 7th in points allowed and 2nd in defensive efficiency (105 PPG, 1.024 DE).

BROOKLYN NETS VS. PHOENIX SUNS HEAD-TO-HEAD

The Nets swept a two-game regular-season set against Phoenix last year, with both contests soaring over the total at a lofty average of 249.5 PPG. The most recent matchup between these teams took place back in November of this season though, which resulted in a relatively low-scoring victory for the Suns (113-107).

KEY PLAYERS TO WATCH

  • BKN: Kyrie Irving - PG (24.5 PPG, 5.1 REB, 5.4 AST)
  • BKN: James Harden - PG (23 PPG, 8.1 REB, 10.1 AST)
  • PHO: Devin Booker - SG (25.1 PPG, 5.5 REB, 4.4 AST)
  • PHO: Chris Paul - PG (14.8 PPG, 4.6 REB, 10.3 AST)

BROOKLYN NETS VS. PHOENIX SUNS BETTING CONCLUSION

After extending their win streak to ten games with a victory over the Spurs on Sunday night, the Suns enter Tuesday’s contest as moderate home favorites over the visiting Nets – marking the fifth straight game Brooklyn has been an underdog in.

I’ll lay the points with Phoenix here, as the Suns have played excellent at both ends of the floor recently, averaging 116 PPG offensively and allowing 105 PPG defensively across their current ten-game win streak – likely presenting another losing battle for a Nets squad that’s scored 109 PTS or less four times across their latest 3-6 SU skid (113 PPG).

BROOKLYN NETS VS. PHOENIX SUNS BETTING TRENDS

  • The Nets are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games.
  • The Suns are 6-3 ATS in their last nine games.
  • The Nets are 14-5 SU in their last 19 road games.
  • The Suns are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 matchups against Brooklyn.
