It’s do or die time in the basketball betting and nowhere is that more true than in the wild, wild West. The eight teams that will be competing in the NBA playoff betting in the Western Conference have already been determined. The only real sports betting question that remains to be answered is the positioning of the teams in the playoffs. This basketball betting result in this game will play a major role in answering that question.
The Phoenix Suns (52-28) are red hot right now and have won 8 of their past 10 basketball betting matchups. Steve Nash is second is leading the NBA in assists (11.0 apg) and his go-to teammate Amare Stoudemire has been the best power forward in the NBA betting competition since the All Star break (23.1 ppg, 9.1 rg).
However the Jazz (52-28) have a pretty good PG-PF combo of their own with Deron Williams and Carlos Boozer. In fact, it would be hard to argue that the Williams/Boozer combo is the best in the NBA odds competition. Williams is second in the NBA betting in assists (11.3 apg, 18.7 ppg) and Boozer has been the most consistent power forward throughout the entire NBA odds season (19.7 ppg, 11.3 rpg).
Last time these two teams met in the basketball odds, the Suns won at home and Stoudamire had a huge game. Expect Stoudamire to play well again this time around as he’s been nearly unstoppable over the past month of the basketball betting competition. But ultimately the Suns will come up short.
Playing in Salt Lake City is very difficult and the visitors rarely leave with a basketball betting victory. With a record of 32-8 at home the Jazz are all but impossible to beat in Utah, especially with home court privileges in NBA playoff betting action on the line.
