The Suns have pretty much fallen out of the Western Conference playoff race but they can still be a force at home in NBA betting.
Basketball betting information tells us that the Nuggets are playing the first game of a three-game road trip. NBA betting stats tell us that the Suns have won six of the last ten meetings between the two teams and they are 6-4 against the basketball odds. At Phoenix, the Nuggets have lost their last eight games straight up and they are 1-7 against the basketball odds. The teams have split their two meetings this season with each team winning and covering the basketball betting pointspread.
Denver has been right around .500 this season on the road in terms of basketball betting numbers. The Nuggets have an offense that is in the Top 10 in the NBA as basketball betting stats indicate while their defense is about average. Chauncey Billups has been leading the team in scoring recently as NBA betting stats show.
Phoenix has not been a good team versus the basketball betting number at home this season. The Suns are almost always overvalued in basketball betting and they have cost gamblers money all season. The Suns have been near the top of the league in offense as basketball betting stats show but their defense has been awful. Phoenix has been getting good play out of Shaquille O’Neal lately but in reality the Suns season ended when Amare Stoudemire got injured.
Seven of the last ten games between the two teams have gone over the NBA betting total. At Phoenix, three of the last five games have gone over the basketball betting total. That makes some sense considering both teams love to run and gun although the basketball betting total on this game will be high.
