Lakers at Suns picks and predictions


Suns 119, Lakers 113



There is no value here, especially when considering the absence of Davis.

Against the spread

BET LAKERS +9.5 (-110).

The Lakers have actually played well lately and are 2-1-1 ATS over their last 4 games. No one can replace Davis, but C Thomas Bryant is hitting 42.9% of his attempts from deep and provides good scoring and defense.

Two key Suns showed up on the injury report as well. The Suns are just 2-5 ATS over their last 7 outings, and their scoring numbers are more impressive than they seem as Phoenix sits 15th in field goal percentage (47%) and 16th in opponents’ field goal percentage (46.9%).

F LeBron James is coming off a 33-point game for the Lakers, and if he’s playing at a high level, they should be able to keep things close.


LEAN OVER 231.5 (-105).

The Lakers rank No. 2 in pace, and the absence of Davis arguably helps their cause. Bryant can space the floor, and with players like G Lonnie Walker IV and G Russell Westbrook, the Lakers want to play at a high tempo.
