Following a season with the NBA’s best regular season record, the Phoenix Suns enter 2022-23 with the sixth-best title odds on FanDuel Sportsbook at +1000.

In addition, the Suns have the third-best odds to win the title in the Western Conference, behind the Los Angeles Clippers (+700) and Golden State Warriors (+700).

However, this team had an eventful offseason, from the Robert Sarver investigation and suspension, to Jae Crowder’s absence from training camp, to the relationship between head coach Monty Williams and center Deandre Ayton, to a preseason loss against the Adelaide 36ers.

With all of that in the rearview mirror, it’s time for regular season basketball to start.

So, in addition to their odds to win the NBA Finals, what is FanDuel Sportsbook saying about this Suns team?
