A pair of teams jockeying for position in the Western Conference standings will meet on the hardwood on Thursday night as the Phoenix Suns play host to the Los Angeles Clippers. Think you know how it will go down? Put your money to work on Bovada Sportsbook's NBA Betting Odds.
The Clippers have already clinched a playoff berth in the West, but the Pacific Division title is still up for grabs as they battle with the rival Lakers for first place in their division.
The Suns, meanwhile, are still on the bubble to advance to the postseason in the West, with the Nuggets, Mavericks, Rockets, and Jazz fighting with Phoenix for the final three playoff berths in the conference.
That means there's more on the line for the Suns on Thursday, and they'll be looking for some revenge after the Clippers bounced them 103-86 as a 7-point home favorite on the NBA Betting Odds at Bovada Sportsbook in their last meeting on March 28.
Blake Griffin led the way for the Clippers with 27 points and 14 rebounds in that March victory, with Chris Paul adding 15 points to go along with 15 assists, and Caron Butler chipping in with 14 points in the contest.
Marcin Gortat had a team-high 23 points in that losing cause for the Suns, who played that game without Grant Hill due to a sore knee. Steve Nash was held to just one point that night but added 15 assists.
Overall, though, the Clippers are just 2-8 SU and 3-7 ATS in their past 10 games against the Suns dating back to late 2009. The UNDER has paid off for totals bettors in each of the last five meetings between the teams.
