The Suns are 40-17-1 ATS in their last 58 vs. NBA Atlantic and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nets are 36-16-1 ATS in their last 53 vs. NBA Pacific and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The home team is 19-9-1 ATS in the last 29 meetings.
The Nets have been playing decent ball as of late at home, and we can't say the same with the Suns on the road. This just looks like too many points to lay with a team at home that's playing better than it was earlier in the year.
