Long time NBA fan, have been following the game closely for 21 years now. Joining the Pickswise writing staff for the 2020-21 season. Hopefully we can make some money together! Oh, and I firmly believe Lebron James is not one of the two best basketball players of all time. Yeah, I said it.

The biggest game on Christmas Day in the NBA is in Phoenix as the Suns host the Golden State Warriors in a battle of the 1st and 2nd seeds in the Western Conference.

Catch that game live on ABC at 5pm ET, and I’ve prepared another same game parlay which you can find below.

Don’t forget to check our predictions on the side and total for the 5-game slate

Let’s get started!

Stephen Curry Under 30.5 Points (-115)

Devin Booker Over 23.5 Points (-105)

Draymond Green Over 0.5 Threes Made (+150)

Parlay odds: +811

Stephen Curry Under 30.5 Points (-115)

Although he’s coming off a 46-point performance against Memphis two nights ago, I don’t think Curry can repeat that here. In 2 games against Phoenix this season he is averaging just 17.5 points and a pedestrian 29% shooting from the field. His 3-point shooting is slightly better at 36%, but still far below the high standards he has set. In his last game in Phoenix, he shot only 4-for-21 from the field and had 12 points. The Suns organized their entire game plan around stopping him and it worked. Mikal Bridges, Jae Crowder, Landry Shamet, Cam Johnson are all going to take turns in slowing him down and then you also have Deandre Ayton controlling the paint, so it’ll be difficult to get buckets down low as well. The Suns are the 2nd best defensive-rated team in the NBA, and Steph hasn’t scored 30 points against them since 2018.

Devin Booker Over 23.5 Points (-105)

Booker injured his hamstring the last time he played against the Warriors at home. Now it’s redemption time and with him coming back from the injury less than a week ago, he’s averaged 23.3 points per game in the 3 games since returning. He’s been perfect from the charity stripe and also his 3-point shot has been stellar, he’s made 14 of 22 shots from deep, if this game goes in a high-scoring direction the Suns can count on Booker to carry them offensively. Prior to the game in which he injured himself, he had 34 points against the Warriors back in May. Andrew Wiggins will most likely not play for Golden State, so that’s one less quality defender to worry about.

Draymond Green Over 0.5 Threes Made (+150)

Normally I would stay away from Green here, but the Warriors are missing both Wiggins and Jordan Poole who attempt 13.1 threes combined per game. Someone will have to make up those attempts and it can’t be Curry by himself. Green isn’t shy when it comes to shooting the three, he’s attempted at least 2 shots in his last 3 games and has made 1 in 2 of his last 4. In the game against Phoenix played on December 4th, he made his only attempt from beyond the arc. So if the Suns decide to put everyone on Curry, he will be forced to give it up, hopefully to Draymond who has to make only 1 shot here.
