Another day, another victory. The Phoenix Suns keep on rocking with this formula, now the winners of 12 straight contests. Looking to keep this blazing streak alive, they now head to the lone star state, sitting down for a date with the San Antonio Spurs.

Last year, Phoenix went 2-1 against their longtime Western Conference rival. But back then, the Spurs looked like a far sharper team, still holding onto mid-range maestros DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge.

Today, DeRozan plays for everyone’s favorite “dark horse” team in the East—the Chicago Bulls. Aldridge finds himself playing for his own Eastern Conference juggernaut, operating as a sixth man for the Brooklyn Nets.

As a team that looks destined for the lottery right now, the Spurs own a 4-11 record, possibly setting Phoenix up for their easiest win to date.

Phoenix Suns vs San Antonio Spurs Odds, Moneyline, Over/Under

According to WynnBet, the Suns enter this matchup at -5.5 point favorites. Their moneyline odds sit at -225, and the game’s over/under is set at 217.0 points.

Given their winning tendencies, it makes sense for Phoenix to enter this bout as the favored team. A basement squad like the Spurs frankly stands little to no chance against the Suns. Phoenix playing this game as a latter portion of a back-to-back sequence is the only reason the spread is not hovering around double digit area.

Phoenix Suns vs San Antonio Spurs Lineups

The Suns received some tough news yesterday when they heard about standout big man Frank Kaminsky’s stress reaction in his right leg, keeping him sidelined for the foreseeable future. Phoenix will miss Frank “the Tank,” but their starting lineup stays intact.

  • PG: Chris Paul
  • SG: Devin Booker
  • SF: Mikal Bridges
  • PF: Jae Crowder
  • C: Deandre Ayton

Rolling with the same starting lineup for almost the entire month, expect San Antonio to field a familiar starting five tonight as well.

  • PG: Derrick White
  • SG: Dejounte Murray
  • SF: Keldon Johnson
  • PF: Doug McDermott
  • C: Drew Eubanks

Phoenix Suns vs San Antonio Spurs Prediction

The Suns outclass the Spurs at every position, not much else too it. Even with Phoenix fresh off another game, and the Spurs well rested, that will not be enough to overcome the clear talent disparity in place. The Suns not only win tonight, but cover their point spread with ease.

Final: Phoenix Suns 112, San Antonio Spurs 99

Phoenix Suns Up Next

Continuing their road trip, the Valley Boys next head north for a matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers this coming Wednesday. With Jarrett Allen reportedly coming back this week, he likely plays against Phoenix, setting up a fun matchup between two of the game’s most promising bigs.

The Cavs just lost Collin Sexton for the year though, which feels like a heartbreaker for this already overachieving team. That does mean that Phoenix gets to dance with old friend Ricky Rubio for some extra minutes though, which sounds fun just thinking about already.
