The Phoenix Suns come into Wednesday night’s Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals as sizable favorites over the Dallas Mavericks.
At FanDuel Sportsbook, the Suns are six-point favorites at -110 odds and -250 on the money line for the second game of the series at Footprint Center.
That means that a $110 wager on Phoenix to win by seven-plus points would net $100 in profit, while a bet of $250 for the Suns to win by any score would win $100.
The over/under — which measures the combined point totals for both teams — is currently set at 215.5 at -110 odds.
Game 2’s betting lines show that oddsmakers like the Suns just a little bit more following Monday’s 121-114 win in Game 1.
Phoenix came into the series opener as 5.5-point favorites with odds at -225 on the money line, while the over/under was 215 points.
Despite the Mavericks’ late push in the fourth quarter that saw the Suns’ 21-point lead dwindle down to single digits, Phoenix held on to cover the spread.
The over also hit, as the two teams combined for 235 total points on the night.
Dallas is now 4-16 against the spread against Phoenix in their last 20 matchups including the postseason, while the Suns are also 10-1 straight up in the last 11 meetings against the Mavs.
The under has also hit in eight of the last 11 games between the two teams.
Up 1-0 in the series, Phoenix hosts Dallas in Game 2 at 7 p.m. on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
