Bet on basketball odds on Thursday have the Los Angeles Lakers favored at home against the Phoenix Suns in a nationally televised game on TNT.
Phoenix and the Lakers are both in a back-to-back basketball betting situation as they have games again tomorrow. Bet on basketball schedule information tells us that the Suns are home against Toronto tomorrow while the Lakers are at Denver. The bet on basketball trends favor Los Angeles in this matchup.
The Lakers have won 7 of the last 10 games between the two teams and they are 7-3 against the basketball odds in those games. The Lakers have won three of the last five home games against Phoenix but they are only 2-3 against the basketball odds. The teams have met twice so far this season and the Lakers won both games although they are 1-1 against the bet on basketball number. Los Angeles won 115-110 at home and 105-92 on the road as basketball betting results indicate.
Gamblers who bet on basketball have noticed that the Suns definitely have a different personality now with Alvin Gentry. They are running and scoring more points than they did under Terry Porter. Phoenix is ranked in the Top 5 in the league in scoring as bet on basketball stats indicate. The Suns don’t play much defense so they try and outscore teams. With Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire it is possible the Suns can do that more often than not and impact bet on basketball numbers. The problem for Phoenix is that this formula never worked in the playoffs and it may not again.
The Lakers have the top offense in the NBA as bet on basketball statistics show. Kobe Bryant is leading the team in scoring as bet on basketball numbers show and he is getting a lot of help from Pau Gasol, Lamar Odom and others. The Lakers also don’t play defense on a regular basis so this bet on basketball matchup on Thursday could be high scoring.
Seven of the last ten games between the two teams have gone over the basketball betting total. Three of the last five at Los Angeles have gone over the basketball betting number.
This game between the Suns and Lakers should be exciting and high scoring. If you want to bet on basketball action for Thursday you need to open your account at SBG Global today.
