NBA betting handicappers have had little reason to be impressed with Golden State while Phoenix has been a disaster for those who bet on NBA games. The Golden State Warriors have spent the NBA betting season near the basement of the pacific division standings with the Sacramento Kings and the Los Angeles Clippers.
As bad as the Warriors have been they have picked up the bet on NBA pace lately as from January 11 through January 31 Golden State went on a NBA betting stretch in which they went 6-4 against the spread, while winning five of those games straight up.
Their most impressive bet on NBA win in that streak was a 119-114 win over the Atlanta Hawks as 1.5-point home dogs. Golden State had an overall NBA betting record of 15-33 straight up and 21-26-1 against the NBA betting odds. In NBA betting road action the Warriors were just 8-18-1 against the spread with a mark of 12-15 under the total.
Andris Biedrins has been a strong NBA betting asset with an average of 12 rebounds per game. Corey Maggette led the team in scoring with an average of 20 points per game. The Phoenix Suns may be a NBA betting playoff contender but they are also a bankroll buster.
Phoenix had an overall NBA betting record of 25-20 straight up and 15-28-1 against the NBA betting odds. The Suns have really struggled in home NBA betting action with a record of 6-16 against the spread with 12 of those 22 games going over the total.
Phoenix is known for their strong offense and it ranked 6th but their defense has been a NBA betting liability by ranking just 26th.
The defensive performance has to disappoint first year head coach Terry Porter who made it a point to emphasize improvement in that area. Amare Stoudemire led the Suns in scoring with an average of 21.1 points per game.
