TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION SUNDAY, JUNE 13TH
#553 PHOENIX (-3′) over Denver at 8 PM EST
On an ugly 0-3 SU and ATS run with all three losses coming to the Suns by margins of 17, 25, and 14 points respectively, the Nuggets will make a quick exit from this Western Conference Semifinal series. Phoenix’s talent is far superior and head coach Monty Williams will make sure his kids grab this sweep. Let’s take a look inside the numbers.
Since 1991, NBA Playoff teams that hold a 3-0 advantage in a best-of-seven series own a reliable 64-32 SU and 55-38-5 ATS record in Game 4. As long as this isn’t the NBA Finals, this situation improves to a respectable 60-30 SU and 50-35-5 ATS. Also, the Suns have been on fire lately notching a strong 50-15 SU and 41-22-2 ATS mark in their last 65 games including a sensational 31-7 SU and 28-9-1 ATS tally provided both teams are rested. Lastly, when priced as a road favorite and battling an opponent that holds a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better, Phoenix sports an elite 65-18 SU and 57-25-1 ATS record in its last 83 tries.
This isn’t the best wagering spot for Denver either. At home in the NBA Playoffs checking in off a SU and ATS loss, the Nuggets hold a woeful 9-16-1 ATS mark including a filthy 1-8 SU and ATS if they are priced as an underdog or a favorite of -1.5 or less. In addition, when hitting the hardwood off a non-division game and facing a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .701 or better, head coach Michael Malone’s kids carry a nasty 13-30 SU and 12-27-4 ATS mark including a stiff 4-11 SU and 2-13 ATS if they played in the comforts of home last.
With the Jazz and Clippers set to go at least five games, the Suns know they can grab some much-needed rest if they can close out the Nuggets. Take Phoenix. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
