Phoenix had a record of 32-28 straight up and 27-31-2 with the NBA odds. The Suns have been in solid form as of late with 4 payouts in 6 games from February 23 through March 4. Phoenix has not shown good value at home this season despite their recent uptick in overall play as they were 12-17-1 against the spread and went over the total in 16 of their 30 home games.
The Suns remain one of the most explosive offensive teams in the NBA as they ranked 4th for scoring offense but their defense was proving to be a drag on the team as it ranked 25th for points allowed.
Now that Amare Stoudemire, the team’s leading scorer last year, is with the New York Knicks, Steve Nash has had to shoulder the burden of the offense nearly all by himself. Nash was leading the Suns with 16.1 points per game and 11.3 assists per outing to prove that despite being in his mid-30’s that he is still one of the premier point guards in the league.
Houston was a good value on the road with the NBA betting line as evidenced by their mark of 19-14-1 against the spread. Kevin Martin was the spark of the Rockets as he led them in scoring with 23 points per game.
This is the second meeting of the season between these two teams. Phoenix scored a 123-116 payout at Houston on November 22 as the game went over the total. Phoenix has dominated this head to head basketball betting series with 16 payouts in the last 19 meetings between the two teams.
The series has gone over the total in 5 of the last 7 meetings between the two teams. The Suns have paid out in 7 consecutive games against the Rockets.
