The Suns have had the Blazers number recently, winning the last 10 meetings. Phoenix is 7-2-1 against the NBA betting pointspread in those games.
Basketball betting information also shows that Portland faces a tough spot on Saturday. They are in the second of a back-to-back having played in Sacramento last night. The Blazers have held their own against the basketball betting line recently at Phoenix. They are 2-2-1 in the last five meetings according to basketball betting stats. The Blazers just missed covering the basketball betting line earlier this month at Phoenix, losing 107-96 as nine point NBA betting underdogs. Last year the Blazers did cover at Phoenix losing 100-91 but they were getting 11.5 points in terms of the basketball betting number.
Looking at the basketball betting total we see that three of the last four games between the two have gone under. Earlier this year though that 107-96 game went over the NBA betting total of 195.5. That was a much lower basketball betting line total than normal in this series. The reason that Phoenix games are getting lower basketball betting totals this year is because Mike D’Antoni is now the head coach at New York. The Suns don’t run up and down the court nearly as much with Terry Porter at the helm. That means looking at basketball betting totals of Phoenix games from last year or before might not be as helpful since the overall strategy in Phoenix has changed.
The Blazers have been a fun team to watch this year in basketball betting. They have the exciting Brandon Roy at guard, rookie Rudy Fernandez who is starting to get some attention and Greg Oden in the middle. The Blazers are finding ways to win in basketball betting despite the fact that Oden doesn’t do much. They will get tested in this game by Amare Stoudemire, Steve Nash and the Suns.
