Basketball betting on Phoenix and Golden State has not been profitable and both teams have had their share of recent pro basketball betting problems.
The Phoenix Suns spent most of the basketball betting season seemingly assured of a playoff spot but a horrible slump that began after the New Year ended up costing coach Terry Porter his job as the Suns fell out of the top eight in the western conference standings and look to be a long shot for the pro basketball betting post season.
Phoenix had an overall basketball betting record of 34-28 straight up and just 24-35-2 against the spread. The Suns have not been a good basketball betting proposition on the road as they have covered just 12 out of 31 games away from the Valley of the Sun.
Phoenix has been a strong basketball betting “over” team, however, as they were 36-25 over the total including 20-11 over the number in road action this year. The season ending injury to center Amare Stoudemire has been a big blow to the Suns post season basketball betting aspirations.
The Golden State Warriors have been one of the biggest disappointments in basketball betting this season. Golden State was 21-41 straight up and 26-32-3 against the spread. The Warriors have been, however, a solid home team with a pro basketball betting mark of 17-11-1 against the spread.
The home team, in fact, has beaten the basketball betting board in 38 out of 58 decisions involving the Warriors this year. Golden State has also been a strong over team at home with a basketball betting record of 19-10 over the total. The Warriors are a schizophrenic team as they ranked 2nd overall on offense but just 30th overall on defense.
From February 23 through March 6 the Warriors went on a basketball betting stretch in which they got the cash in just 1 out of 6 games.
