A pair of bottom feeders will square off tonight in the Staples Center when the Lakers host the Suns at 10:30PM ET.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Lakers are 3.5-point home favorites over the Suns while the over/under currently sits at 214 points. Los Angeles had opened as a 3-point favorite before the line was bet up a half point, while the total opened at 212 before jumping two full points to 214.

Bet Tonight's Suns vs. Lakers Game

Phoenix is 4-6 in its last 10 games overall and is 5-5 against the spread during that time, while Los Angeles is just 3-7 over its last 10 games and has failed to cover the spread in seven of those 10 contests. The Suns are also 10-24 against the spread on the road this season while the Lakers are 15-18 against the number at home.

The Suns have really struggled to cover the spread when playing on no rest, covering just once in their last four games playing on back-to-back nights. They've also struggled to cover against lesser competition, going 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400.

On the other side, the Lakers are a perfect 8-0 against the number in their last eight games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400 so they clearly don't mind playing opponents that are on their level. They're also 8-3 against the number in their last 11 games playing on two days of rest, while the home team is 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games between these two teams.
