The Golden State Warriors hope to get right at home against the Phoenix Suns after playing sloppily and losing to the Nuggets in Denver last night.

Here we discuss the odds and analysis from a betting perspective.

When: Monday October 22nd, 2018 at 7:30pm PST

Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland, California

TV: NBC Sports Bay Area

Line: Warriors -13, total at 228.5

Injuries: Troy Daniels (concussion) is questionable for the Suns.

Shaun Livingston (knee) is questionable for the Warriors and DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) is out for the Warriors.

Phoenix Suns

The Suns were smoked by the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night and are now 1-1 straight up (SU) on the year, 1-1 against the spread (ATS) and 1-1 to the over/under.

After two games, Devin Booker is averaging 30 points and 7 rebounds per game while Deandre Ayton is posting 11.5 points and 9 rebounds per contest.

Golden State Warriors

While the Warriors almost lost to the Jazz because the Jazz shot lights out, Golden State did lose to the Nuggets because of the Warriors’ poor shooting and sloppy play.

Stephen Curry had another stand-out, thirty-point performance, taking the team on his back in the fourth quarter, but it wasn’t enough to overcome shaky shooting from the rest of the team.

The Dubs are now 0-3 ATS and 1-2 to the over/under.

Analysis

If there’s any team for the Dubs to face to help them get right, it’s the Phoenix Suns.

The Warriors have beaten the Suns in fifteen straight games, covering five of the last six contests with six of their last seven games going over the posted total.

Thirteen points are a lot to lay, particularly in a back-to-back situation, but the Dubs will be looking to bounce back after a loss.

The Suns don’t have enough offensive firepower to keep up with a Golden State squad looking to get the taste of that loss out of their mouths, and we lean toward the Warriors covering the 13 point spread.
