Spurs Seeking Upset Double
The Spurs appeared destined for defeat in their initial encounter, but an unexpected victory resulted in a spirited comeback in the final quarter, where they outscored their opponents 33-19.
This remarkable win is likely to boost their confidence, even though current NBA standings project the Suns to be the much better team when it’s all said and done.
Keldon Johnson emerged as a critical player, showcasing his skills by stealing the ball from Kevin Durant and making a critical basket with only 1.2 seconds left on the clock.
“They fouled him, the refs didn’t call it,” Suns coach Frank Vogel said. “They whacked him on the arm before the ball got ripped out of his hands. No call. In a situation like that, we try to get a quick inbounds to our 90% free-throw shooter, and we did.”
Victor Wembanyama, who is still developing, promises to become even better with time, and he could significantly impact this game.
With a 2-2 record, the Spurs are already surpassing initial expectations. Most expected them to struggle in the early stages with their young team, but they’re hanging in there.
Covering the Spurs vs Suns NBA match spread won’t be easy, but they’re good enough to stick with them.
Is the Sun Still Shining?
The Suns have solid NBA team stats, but they’re not the easiest team for bettors to follow.
Just when you believe you’ve deciphered the Suns’ strategy, they squander an apparently insurmountable lead against the Spurs.
Despite the tough loss, the sportsbook expects them to win comfortably against the Spurs in the rematch, but Kevin Durant could be without Devin Booker again.
Durant is consistently averaging 27.3 points per game. Despite the uncertain availability of Booker and Bradley Beal, the Suns possess sufficient talent to overcome teams like the Spurs on most occasions.
However, they sometimes lack confidence, and the Spurs vs Suns NBA match will be tense.
The Suns are expected to win, which adds pressure. If Durant isn’t knocking down his shots and Booker doesn’t play, they don’t have another quality scoring option.
That could leave them vulnerable in the fourth quarter again.
Value with the Visitors
We are happy to take the +8½, especially with their confidence levels boosted following the win over the Suns.
Winning consecutive games against the same team in the NBA is never easy, but the Suns aren’t the best betting option.
