Betting on the Los Angeles Lakers (odds)
Regular Season Record: 31-47
The Lakers are on a tailpin that is costing them whatever chance is left of them making the playoffs. They are coming off a 129-118 home loss to the Denver Nuggets to see their losing skid get extended to six games. This upcoming game against the Suns is basically a must-win for Los Angeles that has covered the spread in four of their last five games after taking a full day of rest. However, LeBron James and Anthony Davis might both be out, with the two superstars currently considered questionable for the Suns game.
The Lakers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus a team with a record better than .500.
Betting on the Phoenix Suns (odds)
Regular Season Record: 62-16
The Suns are assured of a spot in the playoffs, so they can really afford to lose some games. However, they still want all the momentum they can bring to the postseason so their mission tonight is to end a two-game winless skid. Phoenix has not lost three games in a row this season, which is a good sign for their chances to take down the Lakers this Tuesday night. Moreover, the Suns are also undefeated in three games versus the Purple & Gold, so far this season. There also doesn’t seem to be any significant injury concerns for the Suns at the moment, so expect Phoenix to come out swinging against their Pacific Division rival LA.
The Suns are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games overall.
Suns win, 120-108.
