Online Basketball Betting: Phoenix Suns vs. San Antonio Spurs

Online basketball betting on the fading Suns and rising Spurs is a NBA betting question of contrasting values and motivations.

Online basketball betting on the Suns is with a desperate team while the Spurs have been a red hot NBA betting commodity as of late.

In a desperate attempt to save their online basketball betting season and make the NBA betting playoffs the Phoenix Suns fired coach Terry Porter and replaced him with Alvin Gentry who promised to take the shackles off the Suns and allow them to go back to their traditional online basketball betting role of being a team with a run and gun high flying offense that played defense as something of an after thought.

The immediate online basketball betting result was positive as the Suns covered their first three games before splitting their next four.

The bigger problem was that center Amare Stoudemire was injured and likely out for the rest of the online basketball betting season.  Stoudemire was the key online basketball betting asset for the Suns as he led the team in scoring with an average of 21.4 points per game.

Phoenix has been one of the worst values on the board this year and had a mark of 33-25 straight up and just 22-33-2 against the NBA betting lines.  The Suns were just 11-16-1 against the spread on the road and a poor 4-10 against the spread as a dog.

Phoenix was a strong online basketball betting over team on the road with a mark of 18-10 over the total away from home.  The San Antonio Spurs had the second best record in the western conference at 39-18 straight up while going 29-26-2 against the NBA betting lines.

The Spurs have not been a good online basketball betting value at home as evidenced by their mark of 12-15-1 against the spread.

The Spurs were a break even team as a NBA betting favorite.  Since January 27, however, the Spurs have been one of the hottest teams on the online basketball betting board as they lost just 3 out of 14 games against the spread through February 27.

In the last online basketball betting matchup between these two teams the Spurs won at Phoenix 114-104 as 1.5-point dogs on January 29.
