PASS on the money line unless you want to bet the Suns to win as part of a parlay bet.
The Suns are playing far too well to bet against and the Kings are struggling too much to pick for the upset. They have sneaked in a few wins over playoff-bound teams like their victory over the Chicago Bulls Monday, but that is not the norm. The Suns have the best road record in the league at 27-6. The price just makes a single bet on the Suns not worth your time.
