The West is as loaded as it’s ever been and the competition as a result of several mega player trades has made this season bet on the NBA finals picture very muddled in deed. But the Phoenix Suns look to have made some good moves and could be well positioned to be featured in the bet on the NBA finals odds this season.
Bet on the NBA finals fans were in shock when the Suns pulled the trigger on the deal that sent all-star Shawn Marion to the hapless Miami Heat for the aging malcontent, Shaquille O’Neal. People that bet on the NBA finals could not believe that the Suns would be willing to trade away a career 20 and 8 guy for a 36 year-old center made of stone and his huge contract. But they did, and it has made a huge impact on the bet on the NBA finals conversation.
At first the bet on the NBA finals seemed to be correct for widely panning the deal. Shaq slowed the Suns down and he looked lost at times as the team’s bet on the NBA finals seemed to fade away. But as Shaq became more acclimated the Suns fortunes reversed and now the team is back in the bet on the NBA finals hunt. Trailing the division leading Hornets by two and a half games the Suns could enter the NBA finals betting playoffs as high as the number two seed.
If that were the case they’d likely face the Mavs or Nuggets in the first round, two of the weaker teams in the West according to bet on the NBA finals experts, and could enter their second round match up no worse for the wear. According to NBA finals betting experts the team has as good of odds as making the NBA finals betting this year as it’s had in the past. Shaq’s numbers have been unimpressive but he’s opened up the offense for Amare Stoudemire and become less of an anchor in the transition game.
The Suns are not a lock to be featured in the bet on the NBA finals but if they continue to improve with the big man, they could be hoisting the Finals Trophy.
