Basketball Betting: Phoenix Suns vs. Dallas Mavericks

Basketball betting on Thursday features a Western Conference matchup as the Suns take on the Mavericks as online basketball betting hits full stride.

Basketball betting on the Phoenix Suns seemed promising at the start of the year but the Suns quickly lost value against the basketball betting lines.  Phoenix had an online basketball betting record of 11-6 straight up but just 8-9 against the spread.  The Suns had an over under basketball betting mark of 9 over/8 under.

In road basketball betting action Phoenix was 5-4 against the spread with 5 out of their 9 away games going over the total.  New coach Terry Porter created initial basketball betting interest by promising a tougher and more defensive oriented team but after the Suns got off to a hot start and more gamblers took notice and they lost board value.

From November 10 through November 28 Phoenix went on a basketball betting run in which they were 3-7 against the spread.

Phoenix has always been a popular team for over wagering against the basketball betting board but Porter has had some success in his team toning down its act as they ranked 18th overall on defense while still ranking a solid 8th overall on offense.

It will be an interesting basketball betting intangible to see if the Suns leading scorer, Amare Stoudemire, will stir up problems as he has gone public in saying he wants a more dominant “franchise” role with the team.  After a terrible start to the online basketball betting season Dallas has begun to get its act together.

Dallas had a record of 8-8 straight up and 8-8 against the basketball betting lines.  In over/under basketball betting action Dallas was an even 8-8 split.  In home basketball betting play Dallas was just 1-5 against the spread with 4 of their 6 home games going over the total.

From November 16 through November 29 Dallas went on a nice basketball betting streak in which they covered 6 out of 7 games against the spread.  Dirk Nowitzki was averaging 24-points per game to lead the resurgence of the Mavericks fortunes.
