Phoenix are 9-1 SU in their last 10 games against Houston.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Phoenix's last 7 games on the road.

Phoenix are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Houston.

Prediction

The Rockets have been playing better as they got most of their players back and they already beat the Suns earlier this season. The Suns have lost 4 games in a row and have been struggling on the road with a 4-8 record away from home. Phoenix will be without Devin Booker for this game so this is a great chance for the Rockets to take this win at home so I'll give it a shot with money line.
