Basketball Betting – Phoenix Suns at New Jersey Nets

Basketball betting on the Phoenix Suns should be popular as they are at New Jersey on Tuesday.

The Suns are one of the more popular teams for gamblers making basketball bets while the Nets don’t get a lot of attention on the basketball betting line.

Basketball betting information shows that this is the first of a four-game road trip for the Suns. It is also a back-to-back situation for Phoenix as they are at Indiana on Wednesday.  The Nets are facing a much easier situation in terms of the basketball betting schedule. This is only their third game of the season and they haven’t played since hosting Golden State on Saturday night and they won’t play again until Friday when Detroit comes to town.

The Suns have done well straight up against the Nets recently according to basketball betting numbers.  Phoenix has won 8 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams according to basketball betting stats.  Against the basketball betting pointspread though, it is not nearly as good.  The Suns are only 5-4-1 against the basketball betting line in the last ten games against New Jersey.  At New Jersey, the Suns are 3-2 straight and against the basketball betting number in the last five meetings between the two teams.  Last year at New Jersey, the Suns won 110-104 but did not cover the 6.5 point basketball betting number.

Looking at the basketball betting total we see that six of the last ten meetings between the two teams have gone under the total including five of the last six.  The one game that went over the basketball betting total during that time period went way over. In 2006, the Suns won 161-157 at New Jersey.  That has been the exception though, not the rule, so gamblers making basketball bets should keep that in mind.  Both of last year’s meetings went under the basketball betting number.

Gamblers making basketball bets will probably look to the Suns and to the over despite the trends.  Phoenix still has the reputation with gamblers making basketball bets of being an over team although that is not necessarily the case this season.
