NBA betting on Sunday includes an ABC televised game between the Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs.
The Spurs have won 7 of the last 10 games against the Suns and they are 5-4-1 against the basketball betting odds in those games. Here is a look at this nationally televised game between the Suns and Spurs.
NBA betting has seen San Antonio win four of the last five home games against the Suns. They are 2-2-1 against the basketball betting point spread in those games.
Phoenix is trying to prove this season that a team can win simply with offense. They are first in the league in scoring as NBA betting stats indicate while they are 29th on defense. The Suns have played very well lately and are moving up in the Western Conference standings. They are above .500 vs. the NBA betting odds at home and on the road. The Suns have won eight of their last ten overall and are looking like a team to be reckoned with. Amare Stoudemire continues to lead the team in scoring and since he didn’t get traded, the Suns have excelled in NBA betting.
San Antonio is kind of the opposite of Phoenix in many respects. They don’t score nearly as many points but they do play defense. The Spurs are 8th in the league on defense and just average on offense at 15th in the league. The Spurs have been far better at home vs. the NBA betting odds than on the road. They are 16-13-1 against the basketball betting line in home games this season. There are some definite concerns with the Spurs, the main one being their age. On some nights the Spurs simply look old. They have the same core of players and they are simply not as good as the once were. Tim Duncan is still capable of getting his shot and Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker are solid scorers but there seems to be something missing with the Spurs this season. The addition of Richard Jefferson has not worked out as the team hoped and the Spurs look to be playing for a 6th or 7th seed in the playoffs and an early exit.
Phoenix might be worth a shot in this NBA betting matchup considering how well they are playing. They may simply be able to outscore the Spurs in this Sunday basketball betting matchup.
