The gap may not seem as wide in the standings as it has become between the Suns and Warriors on the floor, as evident by tonight’s game in San Francisco. Golden State is in survival mode: down Steph Curry for the remainder of the regular season and weathering a three-game losing streak. At this point, the focus for the Warriors is on teams below them in the standings, rather than Memphis or Phoenix. Now losers of four of their last five, the Warriors will have a heavy dose of Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson against the Suns. Andrew Wiggins is active, and Golden State saw a nice spark from Jonathan Kuminga in his start against the Grizzlies.
Phoenix is on an eight-game win streak and wrapped up home-court advantage throughout the playoffs, including the NBA Finals. Chris Paul is back and the Suns have not missed a beat, as Devin Booker continues to feast on opponents aided by Jae Crowder and Mikal Bridges. Two injuries of note, both Cameron Johnson and JaVale McGee are out tonight. The Suns will send Deandre Ayton out to contest with Draymond Green and the rest of the Warriors’ frontcourt. The Suns are a difficult team to solve, ranking third in the NBA in scoring average and eighth in the league in defensive scoring.

Warriors First Quarter Moneyline: +130 (DraftKings)
This line is fairly tight at or below four points, so do not expect the Suns to run away with this one. The Warriors have a solid opportunity to strike first despite their recent struggles. Thanks to OddsShopper there is a significant return at +130 for the Warriors to come out hot at home, with enough talent to put up some points before the wheels fall off, whenever that inevitably happens. Fading the Suns, in some rare chance that the Warriors send a message, would also require a hot start from Golden State, hot enough to keep them in this game. It is highly unlikely the Warriors are coming back from any major deficit against the Suns, so using OddsShopper to find great value earlier in the game would make the most sense.
Make sure to check OddsShopper throughout the day for the best value and return on any NBA betting pick today. It is also important to check as Awesemo’s projections update and shift any initial data earlier in the day.
Devin Booker Under 2.5 3-Pointers: +104 (FanDuel)
Two of the top xROI plays in this Warriors vs. Suns game feature Booker, but it is best to play them individually. Booker is projected to hit two 3’s tonight according to Awesemo’s free projection. That is backed by OddsShopper giving this a 67% chance of staying under 2.5 made 3’s. There is also the 37% xROI on this play along with the plus-money return. For all of the recent scoring from Booker over the past five games, not much has come from deep. He has failed to go over two makes in four of those five games.
Devin Booker Over 4.5 Rebounds: +114 (FanDuel)
Another Booker prop, another top xROI play. OddsShopper has a 30% xROI combined with a 61% chance of hitting the over on this play. Awesemo’s free projection sits at 5.3 rebounds for Booker. He is averaging just under this total at 4.1 rebounds in the month of March, but Awesemo and OddsShopper like this matchup enough to put him over the top.

Klay Thompson Over 3.5 Rebounds: -144 (FanDuel)
This is one of the strongest xWin plays on the board while still being a manageable single-unit play. Thompson is projected to finish with 4.9 boards, a significant gap between Awesemo’s projection and the books. OddsShopper has a 22% xROI which is reinforced with a 72% chance of hitting the prop. Thompson has gone over this rebound total in two straight games and six of his last 10.
