The Suns have really been pushing the tempo lately, and the oddsmakers have been slow to catch up. They have now gone over the posted total is six of their last seven games, and it doesn’t matter if they play defensive teams or other offensive clubs – they are scoring a lot of points and so are their opponents. We think this is another line that has been set too low. Their last seven games have averaged 211 points, and five of their last six games have seen both teams surpass the century mark.
It seems with the season over for the Suns, they just want to put on a show for the fans. And their offense is really in synch right now. But their defense is even worse than their offense is good. They have allowed 110+ in four straight games and in seven of their last 12 games.
While the Hornets are not a dynamic offensive club and a decent defensive team, they have shown that they can put up high point totals against an up-tempo team, and we think they will run with the Suns tonight.
As the season winds down, teams that are not in the playoff hunt have less and less motivation to play strong defense, and we just don’t see the Hornets clamping down and trying to slow this Phoenix team, and, in turn, the game, down. The over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Phoenix, and that is the way we see this one going tonight as well.
Doc's Sports is on an 8-1 run for NBA picks the last five nights heading into Saturday's action (long-term 90-61 NBA run), and we have a 10* pick coming Sunday in the LA Lakers/LA Clippers game. We were 3-0, +$2000 on Friday night, and we expect Sunday to reap some major profits as well.
