Suns -5.5

The Suns are just a better team than the Utah Jazz. They were able to beat the Jazz earlier this season without Devin Booker. The addition of Booker gives me a great confidence in the Suns going into this game.

Devin Booker Over 6.5 Assists

I was burned by this bet on Wednesday night as the Suns beat the Minnesota Timberwolves pretty easily. Booker finished the game with five assists but only played 25 minutes. The odds of this game being a blowout as well are pretty low. Booker has played three games so far this year. He has had eight, thirteen, and five assists respectively. So I’m confident in him getting more than 6.5 assists when he plays his usual amount of minutes.

Grayson Allen Over 2.5 Three Pointers Made

Grayson Allen is shooting the ball very well this season. He is shooting 49% from three point range so far. He benefits in a major way from having both Kevin Durant and Devin Booker on the floor. Allen will get more open shots and with the way he is shooting the ball so far. I like the bet of him making at least three three pointers.

Kevin Durant Over 27.5 Points

The Utah Jazz are not a good defensive team. They are giving up 119.5 points per game, which is 26th in the NBA. Durant will see more one on one coverage because of the presence of Devin Booker. Durant is averaging 30 points per game and there is no reason to believe the Jazz will hold him below that average.

Drew Eubanks Over 4.5 Rebounds

Drew Eubanks is a good rebounder and just needs to play enough minutes to get at least five rebounds. He has played at least 20 minutes in the last two games. This is a match-up where I believe he will get more minutes to deal with the versatile big men that the Jazz have. So, I see him getting more than five rebounds.
