Don’t forget betting on NBA games when the Phoenix Suns visit the Denver Nuggets on Thursday 26th at the Pepsi Center in Colorado. Check back for the NBA online betting odds at SBG Global sportsbook.
The Suns traded double-digit leads on Tuesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves, but ended up losing a single point in the waning seconds of the home game. Devin Booker scored half of his 26 points in the fourth quarter and Eric Bledsoe made three-pointer to tie the score with 1:05 left in regulation, but it was to no avail. Bledsoe had 18 points and Tyson Chandler scored a season-best 22 points and had 17 rebounds. Meanwhile, Booker has scored at least 20 points in 10 games in a row – the last time a Suns player had such a streak was Amare Stoudemire from November 30th to December 25th of 2008. Phoenix once again fell short of winning three straight this season; the last time the Suns had a three-game winning streak was in November of 2015. Phoenix was so close yet not so far, either; the Suns like the way they’re headed. “We’re taking steps forward, but we still have a long way to go,” Booker said. “These next two games are really important. If we played every team like we’re playing Golden State or Toronto, you know we’d be in pretty good shape.” Phoenix is not quite rock solid yet as far as NBA online betting odds go, but they’re getting there.
Denver fans betting on NBA games should be confident at least about the money line and maybe even the spread as the Nuggets start a home-and-home against the Suns. Denver has beat Phoenix two times this season, scoring 120 points on each occasion. And speaking of déjà vu, the Nuggets came close to blowing a comfortable lead for the second straight game. Denver led by 17 on Tuesday against Utah with minute to go in the third quarter. The Jazz rallied in the fourth to pull within 92-88. Fortunately for the Nuggets, Jameer Nelson came through big time with seven points in the last four minutes, including a three-point shot that put Denver ahead 100-88 with 1:17 left on the clock. Nelson had 17 points, Darrell Arthur had a season-best 16 points off the bench, and Nikola Jokic added 23 points and 11 rebounds. The Nuggets have won five of their last seven. Denver fans betting on NBA games should not expect to see Emmanuel Mudiay back any time soon, but they should expect rookie Jamal Murray to see even more minutes. Murray had 17 points, five rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 20 minutes in the loss to the Wolves, and while his output was not quite as satisfactory, head coach Michael Malone has suggested that the 19 year old could spend more time on court in the near future whether or not other guards are healthy. We’ll have to see what this does for the Nuggets’ NBA online betting odds.
