Warriors vs. Suns Prediction & Pick

This game has far less juice than usual given the injuries suffered by superstars Stephen Curry and Devin Booker. It's a game that still has massive playoff implications, though. Both teams are fighting to stay out of the play-in games and a win on Tuesday would go a long way in building momentum.

I'm going to give the edge to the Warriors here. Golden State has posted an impressive average scoring margin of +7.6 at the Chase Center (No. 6 in NBA) and averages 119.5 points per home game (No. 5 in NBA). On the other side, Phoenix is averaging a dismal 94.0 points over its last three games.

Phoenix is also 1-5 straight up in its last six away games, so I'll back Golden State with confidence.

Final Score Prediction: Warriors: 122 | Suns: 112

Warriors vs. Suns Best Bet

Yes, Phoenix has failed to surpass the 100-point mark in any of its last four games and will be without Booker as well as Chris Paul for this game. However, this is a perfect spot for the Suns' role players to step up. Golden State plays at the fastest pace in the NBA, which means shots will be flying tonight.

These teams have already met twice this season. Mikal Bridges dropped 40 points across those contests, while Deandre Ayton chipped in with 30 points and 21 rebounds. The depth is still there for Phoenix and the total has hit the over in six of Golden State's last eight games played on a Tuesday.

Bet: Over 229.5 Points (-110)
