Basketball betting on Thursday includes a TNT televised contest between the Phoenix Suns and Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers are favored at home in NBA betting odds in this matchup.
Basketball betting scheduling doesn’t do the Suns any favors in this game as they are in a back-to-back situation having played at home against Utah last night. The good news for the Suns is that they have won 9 of the last 10 games straight up against the Blazers and they are 7-3 against the basketball odds. The Suns have won four of the last five games at Portland and they are 4-1 against the basketball odds. NBA betting information shows that the teams met three times early this season and the home team won each time. Two of those three games went over the basketball betting total.
The Suns have been poor at home and on the road versus the basketball betting pointspread. Phoenix has fallen out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference and their defense is a big reason why. The Suns are now playing virtually no defense. Basketball betting stats tell us that Shaquille O’Neal is having a good year but overall when the Suns lost Amare Stoudemire the season really was over for the Suns.
Portland has been very good at home this season versus the basketball betting number. The Blazers have been led by Brandon Roy and a solid defense that ranks in the Top 10 in the league as basketball betting stats show. Portland spreads the scoring around on offense as basketball betting stats indicate with Roy leading the way. LaMarcus Aldridge, Steve Blake, Travis Outlaw and Rudy Fernandez can also score to give the Blazers some balance and impact the NBA betting odds.
Four of the last six games between the two teams have gone under the basketball betting total. At Portland, three of the last five have gone over the NBA betting number.
