While the Suns will probably win the game outright it is the Thunder that may cover the basketball betting pointspread. Bet on basketball trends really favor Oklahoma City in this game. The Suns have won 9 of the last 10 against the Thunder outright but they are 2-7-1 against the basketball odds.
The bet on basketball schedule tells us that the Thunder are playing the final game of a three-game road trip while the Suns are playing the last game of a three-game homestand. Phoenix is also in the first half of a back-to-back as they are at Golden State tomorrow.
The Suns have won the last five home games against the Thunder/Sonics but they are 2-3 against the basketball betting odds. The teams have met three times this season, twice in Oklahoma City and once in Phoenix. The Suns won all three outright but the Thunder went 2-1 against the basketball odds. Phoenix did get the bet on basketball cover last month at home winning 140-118.
Gamblers have simply loved the Thunder this season versus the bet on basketball pointspread. Oklahoma City has been great at home and on the road versus the basketball betting pointspread. They have even covered the bet on basketball number without Kevin Durant and Jeff Green in the lineup but obviously they are a lot better with those two players. The Thunder may not have won that many games straight up but they have been a bet on basketball pointspread dynamo and the future looks bright for Oklahoma City.
The Suns are just the opposite of Oklahoma City in many respects. They are an aging team that has been rotten against the bet on basketball pointspread. They don’t cover the bet on basketball spread very often and are overvalued almost every game. When Amare Stoudemire went down with an injury the chances of Phoenix making the playoffs may have gone down with him.
The last two games between Oklahoma City and Phoenix have gone over the total after the previous nine had all gone under the basketball betting number. Four of the last five in Phoenix have gone under the bet on basketball total. It is hard to take Phoenix games under with Alvin Gentry as head coach. The Suns now run and gun and play no defense which has resulted in a lot of overs versus the bet on basketball total.
