Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Our Betting Pick for Today
Betting on the game! Lakers +2
Over the last couple of seasons, the Phoenix Suns have consistently outscored the Los Angeles Lakers by winning nine straight games. But they enter this contest struggling, having lost four of their last five and conceding at least 123 points in three of those five contests; their opponent has allowed 113 or more in all five contests.

Los Angeles is more proficient offensively than they are defensively, though the Suns don't boast a stellar offense either. So L.A. can use their talented offense to outpace their rivals. In their last nine matches, the Lakers have held eight opponents to 110 points or fewer.

Over Under Suns vs Lakers (227.5)

Bet the over on this game. Both teams are good at scoring points ad I look for the game to be played in the 122-110 range with the Lakers winning.
