Clippers Enter Phoenix Without Best Players and Much Hope

LA Clippers at Phoenix Suns CashBet Wagering Analysis

Last year the Phoenix Suns caught the NBA betting world napping.  While everyone was focused on the Lakers, Clippers, and Jazz, the Suns quietly slipped into the 2021 NBA Finals.  Many observers wrote it off to the rest of the West being ravaged by injuries.  Thus, Phoenix was not a hot team heading into the 2021-22 season on the futures market.  But the Suns have continued to rise.  Now the Suns are being taken seriously by the basketball community.  Most important of all, the Suns are making money for their backers.  In contrast, gamblers are avoiding the Clippers.

LA Clippers at Phoenix Suns CashBet Wagering Analysis

It is true that the Suns took full top online sportsbook advantage of injuries to other teams in the 2021 NBA Playoffs.  But it is not the fault of Phoenix that their opponents were shorthanded.  The Suns took full advantage and demonstrated they are a deep team.  Phoenix grew confident as a franchise in the process.  And that is being reflected in their play this season.  Bettors that were once skeptical about the Suns are now turning into converts.

By contrast, the Clippers have little to offer the basketball betting public.  Kawhi Leonard was declared out for the season before it began.  And then Paul George is sidelined after taking over the team lead for scoring.  Squares rarely want to take an away team.  Especially a struggling club at a powerful opponent.  Accordingly, Wise Guys are hard-pressed to take the Clippers too.  Despite the fact that LA will get an enhanced value price.

Clippers Limp Towards Play-In Spot in West

Late on, LA has lost five of its last six games against the odds.  In comparison, five of those six games went over the total.  The Clippers are 27-30 straight up, 27-31 against the spread, and 28-29 under the Betting on NBA total.  Now LA has NBA metrics of 25th for scoring offense, 24th for offensive rebounding, 13th for points allowed, and 29th for defensive rebounding.

Namely, Paul George was averaging a team-best 24.7 points per game before his injury.  Where LA finds such pro basketball betting production with George and Leonard out remains a worry for fans and handicappers.

Suns Rising as True NBA Power

First among Phoenix scorers is Devin Booker, with 25.5 points per game.
