Phoenix Suns' Perfect November Pays Off For NBA Bettors Too

Phoenix Suns' Perfect November Pays Off For NBA Bettors Too

Forget No Shave November. The Phoenix Suns just finished up No Loss November.

Monty Williams’ group completed their spotless November in style, winning their 17th consecutive game in a 104-96 victory over Golden State Warriors. They haven’t lost a game since October 27, and they now sit atop the Western Conference standings as they look to get back to the NBA Finals for a second straight season. Sportsbooks have taken notice during this incredible stretch, too, shrinking Phoenix’s NBA title odds from +1400 at the start of the season to +900 at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Daily Bettors Making Money on Suns

Not only are the Suns looking like a great NBA futures wager, they are rewarding loyal bettors as well – good news for those who wager on the recently launched Arizona sports betting sites.

The Suns were 55-38-1 against the spread last season (playoffs included), trailing only the Knicks (47-30). They’re back at it again in 2021-22 with a 12-9 ATS record. While that isn’t outstanding, it’s still seventh best in the NBA. During the 17-game win streak, they’re 11-6 against the spread, which would have profited $440 if bettors bet $100 for them to cover each game on their nightly NBA odds.

In terms of totals, a top-tiered offense and elite defense tends to cancel each other out, and Phoenix’s record here indicates that. Their totals have gone over nine times and under 12 times. During the win streak, the over is 9-9, though five of the last seven have hit.

While there isn’t a ton of daily betting information to pull from Phoenix’s hot stretch, it’s time to start putting them in the ranks of the elite when it comes to title contenders. Their odds will only shrink as they continue to rack up W’s. Keep that in mind when making your NBA picks.

Everything Working for Suns During Streak

It started inconspicuously on October 30 with a nine-point win over the Cavaliers. Wins over the Pelicans and Rockets were expected, too. But the win streak really began to take shape in wins over the Hawks, road victories over Memphis, Minnesota, and the Knicks. And Phoenix’s most recent wins have been its most impressive: a six-point road win at Brooklyn and the most recent win over the Warriors.

Unsurprisingly, both ends of the floor have been great. During the win streak, the Suns are sixth in offensive efficiency and second in defensive efficiency. Their net rating is +11.1, second in the league behind only Golden State (15.0).

Devin Booker has been the catalyst during the run, averaging 23.6 points on 47/42/86 shooting. Deandre Ayton shrugged off a slow start and is up to 17.1 points and 11.5 rebounds over the last 17 games. Chris Paul leads the league with 10.0 assists per game since Oct. 30, and the complement of 3-and-D wings in Mikal Bridges, Jae Crowder, and Cameron Johnson have played their roles perfectly.

The Golden State Warriors’ title odds are +600 and they are still the NBA’s best team, while the Nets are best positioned for a title run and are still the favorites (+260 title odds). The Lakers (+1000) are contenders as long as LeBron James and Anthony Davis are healthy, while the reigning champion Bucks (+700) are also rounding into form after a slow start. New users who sign up for BetMGM will receive a $1,000 risk-free bet with this BetMGM bonus code. That means you can put a hefty wager on a team without much risk at all.

But the Suns look poised to compete all season.
