Suns vs Warriors Betting Preview

Last season’s finalists have the privilege of hosting a Christmas Day matchup against another favorite to make the Finals – the Golden State Warriors. Both teams have appeared to cool down from their hot starts to the season but have still played great basketball. The Suns are 8-2 in their last 10 and the Warriors have gone 7-3.

These teams have played twice this season with the home team winning on both occasions. Phoenix aren’t missing any major pieces for this game and are 2-0 since Devin Booker returned from injury. The Warriors however head to Phoenix without Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole amongst other absences.

Stephen Curry hasn’t been his usual efficient self this December. The guard is shooting 41% from the field and 38.3% from deep, far below his career averages of 47.5% and 43.1%. The Suns are a top-5 team for opponent 3-point field goals and will look to lock up Curry once again – he only managed 12 points against them in November.

With their defense, Chris Paul’s basketball IQ, Devin Booker’s shooting touch and home court advantage, Phoenix have more than enough to cover the spread against Golden State.
