Phoenix vs Sacramento: prediction for the NBA match
Runner-up of the previous season got off to a slow start in the current campaign. Monty Williams' men lost 2 out of 3 matches, they went down to Denver (98:110) and Portland (105:134). Phoenix recorded the only victory in the match against Lakers (115:105).
Suns were looking weak in their most recent match. In the previous season Suns were winning matches due to their great defense. Now Chris Paul and his partners are not looking so well under their own rim. It is probably due to DeAndre Ayton's lack of confidence. This player is not performing well so far.
In the first match of the regular season Sacramento managed to beat Portland (124:121). But everything changed since then. Luke Walton's men failed to beat a defensive-minded Utah (101:110). Then Kings failed to outscore the Golden State (107:119).
Board of Sacramento made the same mistake once again. Kings needed to change the head coach during the off-season. Walton is in charge of the Kings for two seasons and he failed to teach his players how to play defense. That's why Kings are losing. Their offense is fine.
Chris averages four rebounds per game throughout his career
In each of three most recent matches Suns failed to beat that total
In each of three most recent matches Kings won the first quarter
Phoenix is not a comfartable opponent for Sacramento. In four most recent matches at Arizona Kings suffered three defeats. Two of them were by a wide margin.
We don't think that something will change this time. Suns should be able to find a cure for Kings' offensive style of play. We think that Suns will record a victory at Footprint Center.
Our prediction - Phoenix to win with a handicap of (-6) points
Prediction: Handicap (-6) on Phoenix

Phoenix Suns are playing successfully in home matches against Sacramento. In 4 out of 5 most recent head-to-head matches, which were held in Arizona, no more than 232 points were scored. We don't think that something will change this time.
Our second bet is on total under 232,5 points
