The Phoenix Suns narrowly defeated the Golden State Warriors with a final score of 108 to 104. The game, which started at 10:00, featured the Warriors, who were only favored by a single point despite facing a revamped Suns lineup.

Despite the Suns’ impressive roster, the majority of gamblers leaned toward the Warriors. Specifically, 55% of bets favored Golden State with just 51% of the betting handle on their -1 line.

When looking at the moneyline, the Warriors took a significant majority, seeing 73% of bets and 69% of the total money.

Regarding the 232.5 point total set for the game, a majority seemed to anticipate a lower-scoring affair with 73% of bets and 78% of the handle favoring the under. Reflecting on their past performances, the Warriors struggled against the spread (ATS) in the previous season, registering a 44-50-1 ATS record and underperforming by an average of 1.4 points.

Meanwhile, the Suns fared slightly better, finishing just above .500 ATS with a record of 46-45-2. Last season’s average point differential for both teams was neck and neck, with the Warriors at 1.5 points and the Suns slightly ahead at 1.6 points. This suggested that their recent matchup could be a tight one, a prediction that turned out to be accurate given the close score.
