All eyes on the Phoenix Suns Saturday night as the line on their home game versus the Memphis Grizzlies only features a 2-point overlay. 


Why We Like the Suns?

The 5-13 Grizzlies have won two straight for the first time this season.  Their Friday night victory comes as a bit of a surprise considering it was on the road in Dallas.  Now they head to Phoenix to face a Suns team that's lost two in a row including 119-111 where they were the -2 point home favorites.  The line on this game is Suns -9.  Our number comes in at 7.18 but we do have to take into account the Grizzlies playing a tough one last night in Dallas and simply not having ample number of top players taking to the court Saturday night. 

Despite not having Bradley Beal and Devin Booker for this one, they still have Kevin Durant, arguably one of the best players in the NBA.

It's hard not to take the Suns this evening unless they simply do not have enough gas in the tank to win by 9 points.

How the Cappers Performed Friday and Any Consensus Plays Saturday

Scott Wetzel's Pelicans pick game through last night.  He did not have any plays yet at the G911 Sports Hub.

Robert Jones had a winning total in the NBA Friday night and on Saturday is focused primarily on college basketball.

Ben Burns won with his Wizards pick last night.

The Bookie came through with the Knicks.

James Acker pushed with the 76ers.

Mario Deluca had the Wizards with a cover last night along with the Pacers money line.  He's backing Houston +5 and Sacramento on the money line Saturday.
