Phoenix Suns vs Golden State Warriors Odds and Predictions

Despite the Suns having won their last two games against the Warriors, Phoenix have now dropped six straight games in comparison to Golden State's two recent losses. The Suns now sit eighth in the Western Conference, with a 20-21 record and a 6-14 record on the road.

The Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns will both be looking to rejoin the win column when they take each other on. The Suns are coming off a 112-98 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in their last match - their sixth loss in a row. The Warriors lost their last game against the Orlando Magic, 115-101.

Through Phoenix's six-game losing streak, the Suns' offense has struggled. Despite shooting just 42.9% from the field and 38.3% from three, the Suns have averaged just 95.2 points per game while allowing 108.0 points per game through their last six. In the Warriors' back-to-back losses, they've struggled on the defensive end. Golden State have allowed 118.5 points per game on 49.7% from the field and 42.6% from three-point range in their most recent two losses.

Without their lead guards at the helm, both teams have struggled. But given Golden State's impressive playmaking even without Curry, they should be able to break down the shorthanded Suns. Take the Warriors in this matchup, as the Suns are severely short in terms of firepower.

Total: Under 231.0 (-110) @ PointsBet

It's a difficult game to predict when the Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors face off. Two defensively-oriented teams who are lacking some key players will be looking to keep each other's offense at bay. In this matchup, with key scorers missing, we're taking the under.

On the season, the Phoenix Suns are averaging a combined total of 223.7 points on a plus-1.7 point differential. The Golden State Warriors are averaging a combined point total of 234.3 points per game on a minus-0.7-point differential. In their last two meetings, these teams have cleared 231.0 with ease.

With Booker, Johnson, Payne, and Paul missing the Phoenix Suns are missing 65.3 points from their 112.7 season average. With Curry, Green, Wiseman, and Kuminga out the Golden State Warriors are missing 50.1 points from their 116.8-point season average. This match doesn't project to be high-scoring, although one of these teams is set to break their recent down streak.
