If I told you that the NBA team with the best record, 3rd-best offensive rating, and 2nd-best defensive rating wasn’t the betting favorite to win the title, would you be interested in jumping on that value before it’s too late?

Well come on down! The Phoenix Suns are +450 at WynnBET Sportsbook to win it all despite clearly being the best team in the world. The clock is ticking, don’t hesitate or you may miss your chance.

The Case For The Suns

Phoenix checks every single box you want in a champion and then some. Let’s go through the list:

First, they’ve got an incredible offense. Led by future Hall of Famer Chris Paul, the Suns’ 113.0 offensive rating ranks 3rd in the league on the season and it’s only getting better. As they’ve started to get healthy, their offensive rating has jumped to 118.3 over their last 15 games, a mark that would be tied for the greatest of all-time over a full season. Besides Paul’s usual excellence, they’ve got eight different players averaging at least 10 points a game. And oh yeah, there’s this guy:

Averaging over 31 points a game in his last 15, Devin Booker is playing the best basketball of his career at the perfect time. There’s no answer for the Suns offensively. They’re too deep and can beat you in too many ways.

Second, their defense is elite. With the 2nd-best defensive rating in the NBA at 105.1, the emergence of Mikal Bridges as the best defensive wing in the league has transformed what the Suns are able to do. He’s a legitimate Defensive Player of the Year candidate and guards the best player on the opposing team every night, freeing Paul up to save his energy for the offense. Just look at this savant:

Third, their role players have grown together and significantly improved. It almost feels disrespectful to call DeAndre Ayton a role player, but that’s the luxury afforded by this Suns roster. After averaging 14.7 points, 12 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks per name in the NBA Finals last year, Ayton is finally healthy and looking like the dominant force he was in the playoffs

In addition to the former #1 overall pick, Cameron Johnson, Cameron Payne, Landry Shamet and JaVale McGee have been superb as the Suns’ 3.5 net bench rating ranks 3rd in the league.

Finally, they’ve got the clutch gene. Chris Paul’s teams have always been fantastic when the game is close, but he and Booker have taken it to a new level.

Add it all up and Phoenix should obviously be the favorites to win the NBA Title. That they aren’t speaks more to the name recognition that teams like the Nets and Warriors carry than to any shortcomings the Suns have. Don’t worry though, people won’t be sleeping on them much longer.

The Suns are simply the best basketball team in the world and a fantastic bet at +450 to win it all. I’d hurry though. There’s only so long before sportsbooks are forced to make them the rightful favorites.

Head on over to WynnBET now and enjoy every win that’s coming, knowing you made the right bet to hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy.
