The Phoenix Suns and Utah Jazz on Wednesday meet for a second time in three nights.

After taking a 115-109 victory over the Jazz on Monday, the Suns head to Utah to complete the back-to-back.

Despite the six-point advantage just two days ago, oddsmakers believe Round 2 will be a tight one.

FanDuel, DraftKings and BetOnline all have the Suns as 1.5-point favorites over the Jazz on Wednesday.

As for the over/under, that sits at 223.5 after the duo combined for 224 in Phoenix on Monday.

Looking at player props, Suns guard Devin Booker has the highest over/under mark of both squads on FanDuel at 29.5 points. He sits at 28.5 on DraftKings.

It’s easy to see why.

In just over 38 minutes of action, Booker notched 33 points on 40% shooting (14 of 35) to go along with seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals.

Over his last six contests, Booker is averaging 30.8 points on 44% shooting.

From an assists over/under perspective, no one comes close to point guard Chris Paul, who comes in at 9.5.

Paul has been on an absolute tear when it comes to facilitating the rock during the team’s seven-game winning streak, averaging 11.3 assists. Over the past four matchups, Paul has posted at least 11 assists.

He’s also putting it in the basket too, dropping 16.7 points per game on 56.5%. His over/under in terms of points sits at 16.5 for Wednesday’s matchup.

The Suns take on the Jazz at 8 p.m. Tune to 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station for all the action.
