The Phoenix Suns have been winning and covering machines dating back to the NBA bubble, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 8.4 points while allowing 43.5 percent shooting from the field. The Charlotte Hornets are finding ways to keep their head afloat, but the loss of LaMelo Ball is going to catch up to them eventually. It takes more than five points for me to get off the Suns bandwagon. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Suns on the road.
