The Phoenix Suns invade the Moda Center to do battle with the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night. Here’s a Suns vs Trail Blazers prediction.

Phoenix Suns 

The Phoenix Suns have been in a rut as they’ve lost six of their last nine games overall, but they will be feeling better after outlasting the pesky Wizards in a 112-108 home win on Sunday. Kevin Durant led the team with 28 points and five assists on 11 of 24 shooting, Devin Booker added 27 points with eight assists while Eric Gordon chipped in with 13 points off the bench. As a team, the Suns shot 45 percent from the field and seven of 31 from the 3-point line as they struggled to get going in the first half and fell behind by 16 points before they clicked into gear and dominated the fourth quarter by 31-19 to come away with the much-needed win at home. 

Phoenix Suns Team Facts

  • The Suns have won each of their last 10 games as road favorites against Western Conference opponents.
  • The Suns have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine games.
  • Each of the Suns’ last five games against Northwest Division opponents have gone OVER the total points line.

Portland Trail Blazers 

Meanwhile, the Portland Trail Blazers have been in terrible shape as they are now looking to put an end to a seven-game slide after getting beaten by the Warriors in a 118-114 loss on Sunday. Jerami Grant led the team with 30 points, seven rebounds and six assists on 11 of 19 shooting, Anfernee Simons added 24 points with seven assists while Scoot Henderson chipped in with 14 points off the bench. As a team, the Trail Blazers shot 47 percent from the field and 13 of 35 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to claw their way back from a 22-point deficit, only to see the Warriors go on an 11-0 run in the fourth quarter to slip away in the end. 

Portland Trail Blazers Team Facts

  • The Trail Blazers have lost each of their last 15 games against Pacific Division opponents.
  • The Trail Blazers have failed to cover the spread in each of their last 13 home games against teams that held a winning record.
  • Five of the Trail Blazers’ last six home games against the Suns following a home loss have gone OVER the total points line.

Suns vs Trail Blazers prediction

The Suns wiill again be missing Bradley Beal, but they should have Grayson Allen back in the lineup, while the Trail Blazers are still missing Robert Williams. The Suns have been playing well below their best lately and they were far from convincing in their narrow win over the ice-cold Wizards, but they’ve already routed the Trail Blazers by 120-107 back on Nov 21 and I think we’re going to see a similar result here. Give me the Suns to get the win and cover in this spot.
