Caesars Gives Arizona Bettors an NBA Jersey When They Back Streaking Suns

By Christopher Boan

The Phoenix Suns have a shot at making history when they host the 4-17 Detroit Pistons on Thursday night. 

A win over the last-place Pistons would give the Suns their 18th consecutive victory, snapping the franchise record set during the 2006-07 season. 

When the 18-3 Suns and Pistons tip off from Footprint Center at 7 p.m. Thursday, Arizona sports betting apps predict a night of celebration in the Valley. 

And Caesars Sportsbook is giving Arizona betting fans another reason to celebrate by allowing them to earn an authentic piece of NBA apparel by wagering on the games.


Caesars Sportsbook Arizona’s NBA Jersey Giveaway

With the Caesars Sportsbook promotion, users get a gift card for a free NBA jersey if they place at least $100 worth of settled bets by Jan. 19.

Users must opt into the NBA jersey promotion on Caesars Sportsbook Arizona’s mobile app, under the “promos” tab. 

Suns a Sizable Favorite to Beat Pistons at Home

Caesars Sportsbook expects the Suns to give their fans plenty to cheer about Thursday night against Detroit. Phoenix is listed as a 12-point favorite (-110), with a moneyline of -900, and an over/under of 208 total points (-110). 

The Emperor also has the Suns among their NBA betting favorites to win the 2022 championship, ranking fourth out of 30 teams at +900. 

The Suns are behind Brooklyn (+260), Golden State (+600), and Milwaukee (+750) in the championship odds race. 

Seventh-year Suns guard Devin Booker is currently tied for eighth on Caesars Sportsbook Arizona’s MVP leaderboard at +4000. 

The former Kentucky Wildcat leads the Suns in scoring at 23.2 points per game, shooting 45.8% from the floor, while posting a career-best 40.3% from behind the arc. 

How the Phoenix Suns Got Here 

The Suns' franchise-tying win streak began Oct. 30, when they beat Cleveland, 101-92. 

From there, Phoenix went on to beat New Orleans, Houston, Atlanta, Portland, Dallas (twice), Denver, and Golden State at home — in addition to one-upping Sacramento, Memphis, Houston, Minnesota, San Antonio, Cleveland, New York and Brooklyn on the road. 

Much of the Suns' early-season success has stemmed from the team’s explosive offense, which ranks fourth in the NBA in points per game with 112.2, and in assists per game (26.4). 

Phoenix’s most recent win came against the Warriors, who are tied with the Suns atop the NBA’s Pacific Division. 

The Suns virtually led wire-to-wire against Golden State, ultimately winning the contest, 104-96, thanks in large part to shooting 49.4% from the floor, versus 41.9% for the Warriors. 

Phoenix overcame Booker suffering a hamstring injury in the first half, as center Deandre Ayton led all Suns with 24 points and 11 rebounds.

Veteran guard Chris Paul also picked up the slack, scoring 15 points and dishing out 11 assists, while forward Cam Johnson added 14 points in 29 minutes off the bench. 

Tuesday’s win over Golden State set the stage for Thursday’s chance at franchise history at home against the Pistons.
