NBA basketball bets have gone great for the Suns since the all star break firing of coach Terry Porter, which has given them a NBA betting boost! The Los Angeles Lakers have also had their share of success recently with NBA basketball bets. The Lakers have been one of the hottest teams in NBA betting for February.
LA’s 111-115 home overtime loss to New Orleans on February 20th was just their 3rd NBA basketball bets loss in 11 games. The Lakers are far and away the best team in the western conference and will have the home court advantage for the NBA basketball bets post season, barring a total collapse.
The Lakers have also been a reliable NBA basketball bets team on the “over” as 34 of their first 55 games went over the total and that included a road mark of 15-10. The Lakers were also a solid team for NBA basketball bets on the road with a mark of 15-10 against the spread.
The Phoenix Suns saw an immediate improvement in their NBA betting fortunes after the firing or Porter. Phoenix won their first 3 NBA basketball bets under new and interim coach Alvin Gentry to climb back into the playoff race.
Those making NBA basketball bets should take note that Gentry promised to open up the Suns offense and go back to the playing style that made them so successful in the past. Sure enough, in his first three games, the Suns went over the total on their NBA basketball bets.
A major factor that could prove to be a negative with NBA basketball bets on Phoenix, however, is the injury to center Amare Stoudemire, who is out for the season.
Whether Phoenix can survive all the way to the post season without him is questionable as the western conference is loaded with talented teams. Stoudemire was the Suns leading scorer with 21.4 points per game.
