As the Basketball betting regular season draws to a close teams are fighting tooth and nail to secure their spot in the NBA playoff wagering action. And the battle out West for the basketball betting playoff seeds is as compelling as it’s been in years. The Utah Jazz and the Phoenix Suns are both in the thick of the playoff betting hunt right now and this matchup will go a long way in determining the first round NBA playoff betting matchups.
The Phoenix Suns (52-28) have been one of the best teams in the NBA betting competition over the past month and are closing the season strong. The team is 4.0 games back of the Western Conference leaders, the LA Lakers, and has no chance of catching them. But it’s currently tied for second in the conference standings with none other than the Utah Jazz.
The winner of this game will have home court advantage in the first round of the NBA betting playoffs and the loser most likely will have to begin the 2010 basketball betting post season on the road. As you can see, there is a lot riding on this NBA odds matchup for both teams.
The Jazz (52-28) is one of the best teams in the NBA wagering and among a small handful of team’s that has a legitimate shot at the NBA Finals betting action. Utah is solid in the front court and back court, plays great defense, is well coached and has playoff betting experience. It has virtually no weaknesses in the NBA wagering competition.
Yet, when these two teams most recently squared off in the sports betting odds the Suns got the better of the matchup. This time it will be different as the NBA odds matchup will take place in Utah. The Jazz are almost unbeatable at home (32-8) and should win this one.
