Suns vs. Lakers Point Spread: NBA Odds, Prediction

NBA Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Phoenix is only 11-40 overall this year, with four wins in 25 attempts away from home. Overall, the Suns have kept a lot of their games alongside an 11-14 record from the spread as the visiting team. They’re only 2-7 ATS this season and 13-28 ATS in their last 41 against divisional opponents.
The Lakers are 15-11 on their home floor so far this season. Overall, they are 20-27 against the spread, including a 9-15 record against the spread at home. Oddly enough, they are just 7-17 ATS when facing teams with a losing record. They have won and covered seven of their last 10 meetings between the groups, though.
Phoenix Suns
One thing we know for sure is that Phoenix has experienced a extremely tough time slowing down its competitors this season. The Suns are have allowed at least 120 points in backend losses, while giving up 111 points or more in each of the past seven losses. Devin Booker and Kelly Oubre Jr. have done their very best to take Phoenix despite their bad defense. However, despite Booker averaging 25.2 points per game and Oubre averaging 17.2 points per game over the previous seven days, the Suns haven’t been able to snap out of their funk.
One of the most important concerns today is that they are playing with no Deandre Ayton, T.J. Warren and De’Anthony Melton. That’s two of their top three point-getters while Melton had become the team’s leading point guard. It’s a great deal to overcome to get a group which was terrible to start with.
Los Angeles Lakers
The challenge for the Lakers on Sunday night is that they may be without much more talent besides James. They are hoping Kyle Kuzma is prepared to go after he missed Saturday’s practice and is considered a game-time decision for Sunday. Remember, the team is without Lonzo Ball. James, Kuzma and Ball are just three of the best four players on the team concerning minutes played.
That usually means the Lakers will require men Brandon Ingram and Ivica Zubac to take the load — even when Kuzma plays. Ingram has averaged 19.3 points per game over the last week but he’s largely been a disappointment this season. He has a PER of just 11.9. Zubac has given the group a shot in the arm as he has averaged 17.8 points and 7.8 rebounds in his last four contests.
There’s no question that the Lakers are fighting and they’ll be shorthanded. But, losses in the home to the Phoenix Suns — who is equally shorthanded — are inexcusable. Start Looking for the Lakers to win however, the Suns to cover.
