Portland Trail Blazers vs Phoenix Suns Betting Pick
This game will take place at 10:00 PM ET in the Moda Center
Why bet the Phoenix Suns -4.5:
✅ The Suns are one of the best teams in the conference while I am unwilling to put the Trail Blazers anywhere near them. While Damian Lillard can do a ton on his own, the Suns are going to make everything tough on him in this game. I assume Chris Paul will do the majority of work, though we will see Mikal Bridges on him as well. I don’t like the Blazers supporting cast with C.J. McCollum out and expect the Suns to be far too much to handle.
✅ The Suns are a surprisingly effective team defensively, ranking sixth in the nation against guards and fourth against forwards. The Blazers on the other hand, rank in the bottom-10 in both categories. The Suns have four or five different ways to beat you while the Blazers solely rely on Lillard. Give me the Suns to run away with this game in the fourth quarter.
✅ While the Trail Blazers have the talent and energy to stay in this game for a while, it won’t last through the fourth quarter. The best lineup for the Suns will wear down the Blazers and I fully expect Lillard to struggle at some point. When he does, the Suns will jump on the opportunity and pull out to a big lead.
✅ When the combination of Devin Booker and Chris Paul are firing at all cylinders, this is a beyond dangerous team. Their ceiling far eclipses the Trail Blazers, who will always at least be a liability defensively. This might be a back and forth game for most of it, but I expect the Suns to outlast the far more shallow Blazers.
✅ The Phoenix Suns are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite.
✅ The Portland Trail Blazers are 0-10-2 ATS in their last 12 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of greater than .600.
The Pick: Suns -4.5

Trail Blazers vs Phoenix Suns Against the Spread Predictions
When making a wager against the spread, you must decide which team will win the game and by how many points. This can seem like a tough task at first glance, but that’s what us at USsportsbonus are here for. We are willing to put in the hours of necessary research so you don’t have to.
For example, let’s say the Phoenix Suns are 3.5-point favorites over the Portland Trail Blazers. In this case, a wager on the Suns would call for a win by four or more points while a bet on the Blazers would require either a victory by any margin or a loss by three or fewer points.
Betting against the spread is the most popular way to wager on NBA games as you’re able to get even money on both teams. This is the only way to do so, as the moneyline is not so even. Make sure to check out the Trail Blazers vs Phoenix Suns against the spread predictions above.
Portland Trail Blazers vs Suns Over/Under Betting
If you’re not sure which team will win the game, betting the over/under can be a great idea. When betting the over/under, it’s your job to determine whether the Trail Blazers and Suns will combine for more or less than a certain amount of points. That amount is set by the sportsbooks and will continue to adjust as action comes in on both sides.
Let’s say the Portland Trail Blazers vs Phoenix Suns over/under is set to 221.5 points. In this scenario, a bet on the over would require 222 or more points while a wager on the under would ask for 221 or fewer total points scored. This is the second-most popular way to wager on NBA games and the other way to get even money on both sides of the wager.
The most important factor to consider when making an over/under wager is the PACE. This will indicate how fast the game will be played and whether it will be faster or slower than expected. Make sure to check out the Portland Trail Blazers vs Suns over/under betting predictions above.
Suns vs Trail Blazers Moneyline Predictions
Betting the Suns vs Trail Blazers moneyline is the simplest bet of all, requiring you to simply pick the outright winner of the game. This removes any question about the spread or over/under, though you will still have to pay that juice somewhere.
If you want to bet the favorite, you will pay over $100 to return that same $100. If you bet on the underdog, it will cost less than $100 to win that same $100. It all just comes down to how favored the team is and what the odds come in as. This is the third most popular way to bet on NBA games, though there is certainly a time and place.
