From the late 1980′s to the late-2000′s the Phoenix Suns were one of the most consistent teams in the West. From 1988-89 to 2009-10, the Suns only missed the playoffs three times as it was quite a sustained run of success for the organization. Only one NBA Finals appearance occurred during all those seasons, but there were six total appearances in the Conference Finals, as bettors had no problem backing the Suns lines year in and year out.
The story has been quite different since 09-10, as the Suns have failed to make the postseason in each season since then. They’ve made a concerted effort to get younger and go the rebuilding route, and another long stretch of playoff appearances could be on the horizon.

Phoenix Suns Record
Phoenix’s strong effort to get younger, rebuild through the draft, and salary-dump trades is going to start paying off sooner than later. The Suns have a dynamic backcourt duo of Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight who can lead the way in resurrecting this franchise. Both guards can fill up the stat sheet on any given night, but they’ve got to be able to stay healthy and on the floor. Injuries to those two and others have been a big reason why Phoenix’s rebuilding plan has been stunted in recent years.
Aside from those two guards, the Suns have some quality big men up front in Alex Len, Mirza Teletovic and tyson Chandler. The “inside-out” game has long been a staple of the style of play Phoenix prefers and with outside shooters like Devin Booker and Jon Leuer starting to find their footing in this league, the future is a lot brighter than it has been for the Suns.
Signs of that really started to show in a tough 15-16 season as the Suns were just 10 games below .500 against the spread (36-46 ATS) compared to their actual record being 36 games below .500. When bad teams start to cover more and more spreads, especially at home, it’s a strong telling sign to bettors that things are on the up-and-up.
Phoenix still has a long way to go before they can reach another Conference Finals, but bettors should take notice of this team the next few years as there will be plenty of quality betting spots where the Suns will help you turn a profit.
