Suns Favored to Outscore Spurs in Basketball Betting

November 30, 2010 NBA Basketball

Basketball betting odds favor Phoenix to outscore San Antonio on Wednesday in a game that can be seen on ESPN.

The Suns lead the league in scoring and should be able to put up a lot of points in this matchup against the Spurs.  This is the third and final game in NBA betting between the two teams this season unless they meet in the playoffs.

Basketball betting trends point to the Spurs in this game a little bit.  The Spurs have won 7 of the last 10 in this series against Phoenix.  The teams have split their two meetings this season with each team winning at home.  The Spurs won 113-110 in San Antonio while the Suns won 116-104 in Phoenix.  Both of those games went over the total with relative ease. The Suns have won three of the last five meetings in San Antonio, while the Spurs have won three of the last five in Phoenix.

The last meeting between the Spurs and Suns went to Phoenix 116-104. The Suns led by 15 at the half and went up by as many as 20 points in the third quarter before blowing almost all of the lead.  The Suns pulled away in the fourth quarter though, Amar’e Stoudemire had 28 points in the win while Steve Nash added 25 points and 13 assists.  The 116 points were the most for Phoenix in the series since 1993. The win also snapped a two-game losing streak in Phoenix for the Suns against the Spurs.

The Suns are 22-15-1 this season at home vs. the basketball betting odds.  Phoenix is a high scoring team that plays little defense, yet they have gone under the total more than they have gone over this season and it hasn’t matter whether they are at home or on the road.  The oddsmakers have simply made the totals on Phoenix games very high.   The Suns had their long winning streak snapped on Saturday at Milwaukee so they will be looking to bounce back on Wednesday.  That was a tough spot for the Suns since they were playing the last game of a five-game road trip.

San Antonio has a losing record on the road this season vs. the NBA betting odds. The Spurs are playing decent defense but too often they struggle to score points.  That could be a problem in this game as Phoenix is likely to score at least 110 points.
