Basketball betting fans were quite interested in how the Phoenix Suns would handle the transition from a free-wheeling offensive juggernaut to a more buttoned down defensive team under new coach Terry Porter, who promised to emphasize more defense this NBA basketball betting season in order to make the Suns tougher for the basketball betting post season.
So far the results are encouraging as Phoenix opened the season 7-3 straight up and 5-5 against the NBA betting odds. The Suns have provided good value on the road with a mark of 4-2 against the basketball betting odds in away action so far. Phoenix began the basketball betting season still strong on offense, ranking 6th.
The Suns ranked 19th on the basketball betting defensive stat charts to start the year. Amare Stoudemire led Phoenix in scoring with 22-points per game to start the basketball betting season. Steve Nash continued to be an assist machine and averaged 7.4-per game to start the basketball betting year.
Shaquille O’Neal averaged 9.2-rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz opened the NBA basketball betting season with a record of 6-3 straight up and 4-5 against the NBA betting odds. Utah was 2-2 against the basketball betting line in home action and went under the basketball betting total in 6 out of 9 games with an even 2-2 split at home.
Utah was led at the start of the basketball betting season by Carlos Boozer, who averaged 20.9-points per game. Deron Williams led the Jazz in assist to start the basketball betting season with an average of 8-per game and Boozer ranked as the leading rebounded for Utah to start the basketball betting season with an impressive average if 11.6-per game.
Utah ranked 15h on the basketball betting offensive stat charts while ranking a rock solid 5th in defense. Utah is often overlooked by more glamorous teams such as the LA Lakers in basketball betting circles so they often offer better value against the basketball betting board than you can normally expect to get from a quality team.
