The under is 17-8 in Suns last 25 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 5-1-1 in Nets last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Randy’s Free Pick
The Brooklyn Nets are still dealing with a lot of transition as they’re trying to get new players in the mix, Durant is still out, and they’re on the end of a back to back where many guys logged big minutes. The Phoenix Suns have the rest advantage, and they’re expected to get Booker back. The Suns win by an average of 4.9 points as favorites. I’ll lay the reasonable chalk.
