NBA Betting – Hornets vs. Suns

NBA Basketball Sports Betting – New Orleans Hornets at Phoenix Suns

Two teams who won their opening game of the NBA season will do battle on Thursday night when the Phoenix Suns (1-0 SU & ATS) take on the New Orleans Hornets (1-0 SU, 0-1 ATS) in NBA pro basketball sports betting action that is scheduled to tip off at 10:30 PM ET at the U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix.

Thursday, October 30
BetUS NBA Basketball Sports Betting Odds: PHOENIX -3, Total 198

Here are some of the NBA pro basketball sports betting trends as they relate to this matchup:

* NO has lost four of its last six games SU
* NO has lost seven of its last nine road games SU
* PHX has lost four of its last six games SU
* PHX has covered nine of its last 12 home games
* PHX has won 10 of its last 12 home games SU
* PHX has played four of its last six home games UNDER the total


* NO has covered the last six meetings
* NO has won four of the last five meetings SU
* PHX has won 11 of the last 16 meetings SU
* Nine of the last 12 meetings have gone UNDER the total
* NO has covered ten of the last 12 meetings as the road team
* Ten of the last 13 meetings in Phoenix have gone UNDER the total

The Hornets, who found themselves stymied on the offensive end in the latter part of their Western Conference semi-final series against San Antonio last season, got off to a very good shooting start against the Golden State Warriors, as they hit 50% from the field in their opening 108-103 win/non-cover. James Posey, the new addition who comes off the bench as a sixth man, had 11 points.

On Thursday the Hornets play a team that is similar in terms of defensive puissance to Golden State, but has demonstrated in the past that it is better getting the ball up the court and choosing its shots. The Suns hit 49% in a road win at San Antonio to open their season, but with Shaquille O’Neal logging appreciable minutes (30 in the opener – 15 points, 13 boards), they are going to have to slow things down if they want to make him a big part of the game. And along the way I think there are going to be problems with the Suns making the transition to a coach like Mike D’Antoni, who ran a helter skelter offense, and Terry Porter, who doesn’t want to slow things to a crawl but wants to be more deliberate.

The Spurs were without Manu Ginobili last night. The Hornets have all hands on deck. They have won four of the last five meetings and covered the last six, so the matchups are bad for Phoenix here. Chris Nash has taken the torch from Steve Nash. Tyson Chandler, who concentrates on defense, can neutralize O’Neal. New Orleans can dictate pace. And they are mentally tough enough to win anywhere. Let’s take the Hornets plus three points in the BetUS NBA pro basketball sports betting odds.
