15* Suns/Warriors NBA Late-Night BAILOUT on Golden State -8
Phoenix vs. Golden State,
02/20/2013 22:30 EDT,
Score: 98 - 108
Point Spread: -8/-109 Golden State
The Golden State Warriors will be highly motivated for a victory tonight to put an end to their 6-game losing streak coming in. I like their chances of putting an end to the skid in blowout fashion considering they'll be hosting the lowly Phoenix Suns tonight.
Five of Golden State's six losses during this streak have come on the road and against some very good competition. It lost to Houston twice, Oklahoma City, Memphis, Dallas and Utah. Now, the Warriors return home where they are 16-7 on the season.
Phoenix is coming off a rare road victory at Portland last night, which sets it up for a big letdown spot here against a Warriors' team that is simply going to want this one more. The Suns are just 6-23 in all road games this season, getting outscored by an average of 8.8 points/game.
Golden State is 4-0 SU & 4-0 ATS in its last 4 meetings with Phoenix. That includes a 113-93 home victory as a 10.5-point favorite on February 2nd in its lone home meeting with the Suns this season. I look for a similar blowout tonight. The Warriors are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 home meetings with Phoenix overall.
This play falls into a system that is 54-26 (67.5%) ATS since 1996. It tells us to bet on favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points (GOLDEN STATE) - after being beaten by the spread by 48 or more points total in their last ten games against opponent after going under the total by 48 or more points total in their last seven games. Bet the Warriors Wednesday.
