NBA Betting: LA Lakers vs. Phoenix Suns

NBA betting Thursday features a fantastic Western Conference showdown between the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns.

Online basketball betting fans handicap two dominant teams getting together in Phoenix.  NBA betting fans have always gravitated towards the Lakers and this online basketball betting season is no different except for the unusual fact that the Lakers have carried far better than expected NBA betting value.

So far this season the Lakers are 7-1 straight up and 6-2 against the NBA betting lines with a road record of 3-1 against the NBA betting odds.  The Lakers have been downright dominant on both sides of the court ranking 3rd overall on offense and 2nd on the NBA betting defensive charts.

The Lakers were an even 4- split on NBA betting over/unders with 3 unders in 4 road games against the NBA betting totals.  Los Angeles had a 4 game winning streak against the NBA betting lines snapped at home in a 95-106 upset loss to Detroit as 9.5-point chalks against the NBA betting odds.

Kobe Bryant opened the NBA betting season as the Lakers leading scorer with 24.8-points per game.  He was also the leading assist man with 4-per game while Pau Gasol led in rebounding with a strong 10.6-per game.  The Phoenix Suns opened the online basketball betting season determined to reclaim their spot among the NBA betting elite.

Phoenix, under new coach Terry Porter, began the NBA betting season 8-4 straight up and 6-6 against the NBA betting lines.

After a hot start the NBA betting odds makers adjusted the Suns value on the board, and this success inflation cost NBA betting fans on Phoenix as the Suns dropped 4 out of 5 games against the NBA odds between November 10-17.  Phoenix was led at the start of the NBA betting season by Amare Stoudemire who had 23.2 points per game.

Steve Nash led in assists with 7.5 per game while Stoudemire was also the leader in rebounds with 8.3 per game.  Phoenix went over the NBA betting total 7 out of 12 games to start the season with 3 out of 5 home games going over the NBA betting total.

The Suns were right behind the Lakers in 2nd place in the Pacific Division to start the NBA betting season.
