Phoenix Suns Betting

Home » Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns are a storied franchise who’ve had periods of dominance over the years but have never won an NBA championship. They’ve come close a few times. They made it to the finals and lost in 1976 with Paul Westphal, in 1993 with Charles Barkley, and most recently in 2021 with Devin Booker and Chris Paul. They never made a finals run with 2-time MVP Steve Nash, but they made the playoffs in every one of his 5 healthy seasons in Phoenix, and reached the Western Conference Finals 3 times.

After a 10-year playoff drought, the Phoenix Suns are relevant again in 2022. The team, led by Booker, Paul, and Deandre Ayton, have made back to back playoff appearances (including a finals loss in 2020-21) and are off to another hot start this year.

What Bets Can I Make on the Suns?

The Suns have been a relatively popular futures bet to win the NBA finals all offseason 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, 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.

A list of the 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 to win 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.

What bets can I make on the Suns?

Between the most popular sports books 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. 

How many Championships have the Suns won?

The Suns have never won an NBA finals, though they’ve been to three of them. They lost in 1976, 1993, and 2021

Who is/was the best Suns player?

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. 

Where can I purchase Suns tickets and merchandise?

You can purchase Cardinals tickets on their team website, and you can find all the best merchandise including jerseys, clothing, hats, and other accessories at their official team shop
