What Bets Can I Make on the Suns?
The Suns have been a relatively popular future bet to win the NBA finals all off-season long. They fluctuated between +650 and +1000 and ultimately began the season at +100. Right now, only the Celtics, Bucks, Warriors, and Clippers have shorter odds to win a championship.
Last year was supposed to be the Suns’ year. They had the best record in the league by 8 games and were clearly a head above everyone else. They had the 5th ranked offense, and the 3rd-ranked defense and they shot the three ball more efficiently than any other team, but Luka Doncic ran wild on them in the playoffs. The Mavs beat the Suns in 7 games, though it’s very possible the Suns would have been a better matchup against the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.
They still have the core of their 2021 finals team of Paul, Booker, Ayton, and Mikal Bridges, and have as good a shot as anyone to win it all, and finally, bring the Larry O’Brien trophy to Phoenix.
Other bets you can make on the Suns include: winning the Pacific division (-125), winning the Western Conference (+410), winning over 52.5 games (+100), and making the playoffs (-2500). You can also bet on Devin Booker (+4500) or Chris Paul (+20000) to win the MVP award, Monty Williams (+2200) to win coach of the year, Cameron Payne (+10000) to win 6th man of the year, or Mikal Bridges (+1500) to win defensive player of the year.
Where Can You Bet on Arizona Teams?
Currently, there are 9 online sportsbooks available to Arizona bettors: DraftKings, Caesars, BetMGM, BetRivers, BetFred, FanDuel, Unibet, WynnBet, and Barstool Sports. Online sports betting has only been legal in the state for a year and a half though, so others may become available in the future.
If you’re betting in Arizona though, you’ll want to check out FanDuel. Fanduel is partnered with the Suns and they have plans to open up a sportsbook inside the area for the ultimate online sports betting experience, much like BetMGM has at the Cardinals stadium. Additionally, you can get all sorts of Arizona-specific promo codes. There are up to 15 promo codes and deals you can take advantage of that are changing all the time.
Where Can You Watch the Suns?
The Suns have 34 nationally televised games this season between ESPN, ABC, TNT, and NBA TV. All other games can be found locally on Bally Sports Arizona. A list of nationally televised games can be found here. You can also tune into ESPN 620 AM or KMVP 98.7 FM to listen to the radio broadcast.
What’s the Best Bet to Make?
The Suns winning the western conference at +500 is an attractive bet. In the East, the Celtics and Bucks look like the best teams in the NBA, but the Suns are arguably the best team in the West, and still have longer odds than the Warriors and Clippers who are both struggling.
If you want to make that bet, you’ll want to make it on DraftKings. DraftKings has the longest current odds on the Suns winning the West (+500) so you’ll get the best value there. Devin Booker winning MVP is another valuable bet. He may end up being the best player on the best team which should at least get him into the conversation, but he’s further down the list of odds than he should be. For that bet, you should go to Fanduel who has Booker at +4600 to win MVP.
Online sports betting is legal in Arizona, and there are 9 sportsbooks available for Arizona bettors: DraftKings, Caesars, BetMGM, BetRivers, BetFred, FanDuel, Unibet, WynnBet, and Barstool Sports. Soon you’ll be able to bet in person at the Sun’s arena in the FanDuel sportsbook.
Between the most popular sportsbooks, you can bet on the Suns winning the NBA Finals, winning the Western Conference, winning the Pacific division title, making the playoffs, what stage they’ll be eliminated from the postseason if they’ll have the best or worst record in the league, and their win total on the season.
The Suns have never won NBA finals, though they’ve been to three of them. They lost in 1976, 1993, and 2021
Steve Nash is going to be the most popular answer to this question, with Charles Barkley maybe a close second. Nash spent the prime of his career – 8 seasons – in Phoenix and won 2 MVP awards, made 5 All NBA teams, led the league in assists 5 times, and brought the Suns to the conference finals 3 times. Charles Barkley did win an MVP in Phoenix and brought the Suns to the NBA finals where they lost to Jordan’s Bulls, but he was only on the team for 4 seasons. If Devin Booker brings a ring or two home, this answer could change in the future.
