Market Report for Tuesday, February 8th
*Indicates team is on the second leg of a back-to-back
**Lines are opening numbers
*Phoenix Suns at Philadelphia 76ers (-2.5, 216.5)
This road trip for Phoenix has been much more challenging than previous road trips this season. The Suns opened their east coast swing with a loss in Atlanta before a bounce back against Washington two nights later. However, last night they fell apart in the fourth quarter and gave up 1.6 points per possession to fall to 1-2 ATS through three games on the trip. The bounce back tonight against Philadelphia is a brutal spot. Phoenix is playing its third game in four nights on the road, and a meeting with the team that beat them in the NBA Finals looms on Thursday. Regardless, from a pure number standpoint this price is incorrect and the market is getting it right in moving it toward Phoenix. Homecourt this season has been worth two points, so an initial open of 76ers -2.5 would indicate Philadelphia is the slightly better team which is not the case. The Suns should be favored here and it would not be a shock to see this flip and close Suns -1 which is a much more accurate price of a matchup like this.
