NBA Betting – Thursday Night Picks – Phoenix Suns vs Utah Jazz
Before nba betting fans turn their attention to more sports betting events this weekend, we have the NBA doubleheader on Thursday night. It’s time for our weekly hoops picks for NBA gambling action.
SUNS vs. JAZZ
Phoenix: 0-1 SU, 0-1 ATS
Utah: 0-1 SU, 0-1 ATS
Between the two of them, the Jazz and Suns combined for 121 regular season and playoff wins last season, but there are whispers around the league that both franchises might be ready to take a step back.
Steve Nash looks around the locker room and sees that Hedo Turkoglu has replaced Amar’e Stoudemire, and figures that the Suns got the short end of that stick. In Utah, high-energy power forward Carlos Boozer is gone and Easy Al Jefferson now is at the 4.
Jefferson is hardly chopped liver, but Jerry Sloan has his work cut out trying to get AJ to give the team 40 minutes at both ends of the court.
Phoenix is 2-5 SU in its last 7 games
Phoenix is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games on the road
Utah is 13-3 SU in its last 16 games at home
The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Phoenix’s last 11 games on the road
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Phoenix’s last 9 games when playing Utah
Utah is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games when playing at home against Phoenix
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Utah’s last 9 games when playing Phoenix
Utah is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games when playing Phoenix
Best parlay bet: Thirteen and change is way way way too much to lay. Washington will be trying to get things going to energize its dispirited fan base, and while there aren’t enough arrows in the quiver to win this one, grab the points. Package it with the Suns-Jazz under for a parlay play. Phoenix is not the offensive juggernaut it was with Amare Stoudemire, and the Suns may spend most of the season trying to find their way.
