Joe’s Pick to Cover the Spread

Heading into game 5 of this Western Conference semi-finals series between Phoenix and Dallas, look for the Suns to get back on track and pick up the win at home. In the first two games of this series at the Footprint Center, Phoenix scored 121 and 129 points, respectively. Look for a bounceback performance from Chris Paul as he continues his quest for his first NBA title. I like the Suns to cover the spread at -6.5.
