Suns vs Thunder Bold Predictions and Betting Pick (Take the Points)

The Suns are officially the most interesting team in the NBA, and one of the favorites to win the Finals, ever since adding Kevin Durant at the trade deadline.

Durant almost certainly won’t suit up tonight after reports surfaced that he’s targeting a March 1 return, but that doesn’t mean you should skip this game.

There’s some strong value to be had when betting tonight. I’ll detail that for you in a minute, but not before I tell you about an awesome promotion from Caesars Sportsbook.

Phoenix Suns

Boosted by the return of Devin Booker, the Suns have been one of the league’s hottest teams over the past few weeks with an 11-4 record over their past 15 games.

Oklahoma City, on the other hand, has plateaued lately with a 5-5 record over its past 10 games.

It is worth noting that Phoenix isn’t exactly at full strength for this game without Durant, though. The Suns gave up some substantial playmakers, like Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson, to acquire Durant and T.J. Warren. Though Warren should suit up tonight, taking away Bridges and Johnson from this squad is nothing to shrug off.

That should lead to a couple of important factors for both teams.

Phoenix’s playmakers, like Booker, Chris Paul, and Deandre Ayton will likely be leaned on until Durant returns, meaning these players won’t be shy about shooting the basketball.

Don’t be afraid to bet the over on points for any three of these players tonight.

For the Thunder, they won’t have to worry about quality defense from Bridges and Johnson, and could keep pace for much of the night.

Even though Oklahoma City hasn’t played its best basketball lately, it’s been in nearly every game. The Thunder have lost just two games by more than eight points since the New Year, and I don’t see them adding another tonight against a Suns team still awaiting Durant’s debut.

Take OKC +8 tonight and consider the over, too, if you’re feeling risky.

Whatever you decide to bet on, make sure it’s fully insured so you don’t lose your money. Sign up with Caesars while this promotion still lasts.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
