To add to the information above, the Suns have won their past eight consecutive games versus the Mavericks.

Anyways, this season, the Suns are 2-0 versus the Mavs. On Nov. 19, 2021, Phoenix won 112-104 at Footprint Center.

Leading into tonight’s intraconference rematch, the only player the Mavericks have listed on their injury report is guard Sterling Brown, who is listed as questionable.

Suns vs Mavericks Prediction | NBA Picks

Additionally, for other betting statistics, Phoenix is 33-7 as a favorite, 1-2 as an underdog and 13-8 ATS away, while Dallas is 20-5 as a favorite, 6-13 as an underdog and 10-11-1 ATS at home. Both of these Western Conference teams are on a four-game winning streak. However, the Suns have the Mavs’ number. Dallas has not beaten them since 2019. And, the Suns are entering this matchup as 2.5-point favorites.

The Suns have two players on their injury report now listed as out: Abdel Nader and Deandre Ayton. Even with these injuries, Phoenix continues to win. Booker is also coming off a 48-point performance. Taking all of this under some consideration, the Suns are the better choice to win and cover the spread. The total will go under 216.5.
