The Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs meet Tuesday in NBA action at the AT&T Center.

The Phoenix Suns could use a win here to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Phoenix Suns are averaging 105.7 points on 45.5 percent shooting and allowing 115.5 points on 48.2 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 24.5 points and 6.7 assists while TJ Warren is averaging 18 points and four rebounds. Deandre Ayton is the third double-digit scorer and Kelly Oubre Jr. is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 33.1 percent from beyond the arc and 78 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Suns haven’t won a road game since December 26.

The San Antonio Spurs look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 112.3 points on 48.3 percent shooting and allowing 109.7 points on 46.2 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 21.5 points and 6.3 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 20.9 points and 8.6 rebounds. Rudy Gay is the third double-digit scorer and Bryn Forbes is dishing 2.3 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 40.9 percent from beyond the arc and 81.7 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.4 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have won eight of their last 10 home games.

The Suns are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Spurs are 28-10 ATS in their last 38 home games, 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 vs. Western Conference and 20-6-1 ATS in their last 27 games overall. The Suns are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings in San Antonio and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Spurs last 5 overall. The under is 18-8 in Suns last 26 vs. Western Conference.

No matter who plays in this game, fading the Phoenix Suns has been extremely profitable this season, as they're just 22-30 ATS overall. The Suns are being outscored by an average of 18.8 points in their last five games and 12.5 points on the road. The Spurs play their best ball by far at home and are winning by an average of 25 points when a double-digit favorite. Backing the Suns in any way shape or form isn't an option for me right now.

Pick:
San Antonio Spurs -13
