ASA's Red-Hot NBA Triple Pack
(NBA) Phoenix vs. Golden State, 05/11/2021 10:00 PM, Score: 116 - 122
Point Spread: -5.00 | -107.00 Phoenix (Away)
Result: Loss
ASA play on 8* Phoenix Suns -5 over Golden State Warriors, 10:10 PM ET - At first glance you might be wondering why the Suns are this big of a road favorite but considering the Suns were just favored by -6.5 in L.A. versus the Lakers, this number is right. Golden State is in a tough scheduling situation as they are off a big win last night against the Jazz, are playing their 3rd game in four days and 6th in nine days. Golden State has struggled when playing on consecutive days with a 5-9 SU record this season and an average loss margin of 6PPG. The Suns are rested and coming off a loss which makes them a dangerous team. Phoenix is 16-4 SU and ATS when coming off a loss this season, 8-2 on the road. Phoenix and Golden State have identical home/road records at 22-11 SU, but obviously the Suns are more impressive since they came away from home. When you talk about the Warriors the first thought is offense, but Golden State is 22nd in offensive efficiency compared to the Suns who rank 7th. Defensively, these two teams are even as the Warriors allow 1.099-points per possession (5th) while the Suns rank 6th allowing 1.11PPP. We are backing the better overall team here in the much better scheduling situation. Bet the Phoenix Suns.
