Phoenix at Dallas

1 unit on Game Total OVER 222 -110 (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
These teams can flat out score. Both of them scored 100+ points in each of their prior six games - something that hasn't happened for nearly 20 years. Phoneix has scored over the century mark in their last 12 games - dating back to mid April before the playoffs began. Neither team seems too concerned with defense either. Phoenix is giving up 108 per game over their last five while Dallas has allowed 115 per game in their last five. I don't expect much different tonight. DALLAS is 8-2 OVER (+5.8 Units) in home games versus up-tempo teams averaging 83 or more shots/game this season. And, Games with a total of 200+ featuring a team off a 110+ point performance vs. a team off a game in which 215+ were scored, have gone over 89-48 (65%) over the last five seasons. Expect a shootout here. One star on the OVER.
