This basketball betting matchup should be a good one with LeBron James and the Cavaliers facing Shaquille O’Neal and the Suns. Bet on basketball scheduling information tells us that the Cavaliers are playing the second game of a three-game road trip.
It is also the first of a back-to-back for the Cavaliers as they are at Sacramento tomorrow night. Bet on basketball trends definitely favor the Suns in this game. Phoenix has won 7 of the last 10 games against the Cavaliers and they are 7-3 against the basketball odds. At Phoenix, the Suns have won the last nine games against Cleveland although they are only 5-4 against the basketball odds in those games. The teams met last month in Cleveland and the Cavaliers routed the Suns 109-92 as 9-point bet on basketball favorites.
This basketball betting matchup on Thursday pits the Cleveland defense against the Phoenix offense. The Cavaliers have the best defense in the NBA as bet on basketball information show. Cleveland also has a good offense that is near the top 10 in the league as basketball betting statistics show. LeBron James has been right near the top of the league in scoring for most of the season as bet on basketball stats indicate.
Phoenix has an offense that ranks in the Top 5 in the league as bet on basketball data shows. The problem for Phoenix is a defense that ranks near the bottom of the league as bet on basketball numbers tell us. The Suns have not been very good at home versus the bet on basketball number this season. Phoenix still has a reputation as a very good team but in reality they probably will miss the playoffs this season. Losing Amare Stoudemire to injury was definitely a crushing blow and although Shaq has picked up his play it probably won’t be enough.
Seven of the last ten games between the two teams have gone over the bet on basketball total. At Phoenix, the over/under is 2-2 in the last four meetings as the bet on basketball statistics show.
This Thursday night basketball betting matchup should be very exciting. You don’t want to miss out on the Cavaliers and Suns so make sure and open an account at SBG Global today.
