Brooklyn Nets vs. Phoenix Suns Prediction

This could make me look like a fool or really smart. Either way, I’d gladly play this as of the moment and think it makes complete sense. Devin Booker is returning from injury and will be on a minutes restriction. The extent of the minutes restriction is unknown but I’ll take the risk on that.

If I were Monty Williams, I would either start Booker but play him sparingly until the fourth quarter when you need him, or straight up have him off the bench and let him dominate second units easing his way back into the swing of things. Booker usually dominates first-quarter minutes but today should be a different scenario.

Booker’s points prop is at just 20.5 so seeing this at 6.5 feels high. If he scores seven in the first quarter, then he’s on pace for 28 theoretically, so I imagine a slow start to the game and his minutes to be monitored following that groin injury. Brooklyn isn’t the best defense to slow him down but this bet is banking on a lack of volume rather than a shutdown defensive performance out of the Nets. I much prefer this over u20.5 so let's get through this one quickly. Let's roll!
