Sportsbook Wire: Suns 114, Pistons 96

Jess Root writes: "The Pistons have covered the spread four times on their seven-game skid. They are 8-5 ATS in their last 13 games and 10-11 ATS overall. The Suns have covered the spread in their last three games, in four of their last six and in 11 of their 17 wins during their streak. They are 12-9 ATS overall. I expect them to be fine offensively despite the absence of Booker and the defensive play to continue to be great."

Sportskeeda: Suns will beat Pistons to win 18th straight game

Michael Macasero writes: "On paper, this has to be one of the most lopsided games of the season. The Detroit Pistons’ plethora of weaknesses also happen to be some of the Phoenix Suns’ strengths. If the Suns just roll up their sleeves to work, it could be just a formality before another W is added to their record."

Picks and Parlays: Suns 108, Pistons 102

It writes: "Phoenix G Devin Booker left Tuesday’s victory with left hamstring soreness and his status for this game is uncertain. The Suns are ripping through the league with ease, but will have a hard time getting up for the lowly Pistons. Take the points."

Sports Chat Place: Suns will cover vs. Pistons in NBA game

Peter Tran writes: "The Suns have had targets on their backs for a while now as everyone wants to be the team to snap the win streak, but they’ve taken down all comers and are clear favorites in this spot. The Pistons haven’t been able to get anything going in their last 11 games and their confidence took another hit after getting blown out by the Trail Blazers on Tuesday. The Suns are banged up as they will be without Devin Booker, but I think we’ll big games from Chris Paul and Mikal Bridges as the Suns run away with it in this one."
