Denver at Phoenix

1.5 units on Phoenix -4.5 (-115) (risk 1.5 to return 2.8) RESULT: WIN
It was back in January, but Phoenix still could be considered to be in double revenge as it remembers two overtime losses to the Nuggets on consecutive nights. The Suns come off a 4-2 series win over the defending champion Lakers and as long as Chris Paul is healthy, they are legitimate championship contenders this year. The Suns have the edge at guard with Paul and sharp-shooting Devin Booker, who averaged nearly 30 points per game and 43-percent shooting from 3-point distance. Deandre Ayton is a force on the boards and can somewhat neutralize Nikola Jokic with his improved defense. The Nuggets are 0-4 ATS their past four games playing with at least three days rest, and Phoenix is 18-7-1 ATS vs. teams with .600 or better winning percentages. Play the Suns.
