NBA Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Lakers are 4-0 ATS in their last four games versus the Western Conference. Los Angeles is 9-3 ATS in its last 12 games overall.

Phoenix

The Suns are 6-0 ATS in their last six games versus the Pacific Division. Phoenix is 8-1 ATS in its last nine games overall.

Prediction:

The Suns will happily let people overlook them until they can't anymore. This is a squad playing very good team defense and can also drop 138 points on any given night or at least when the opponent is the Nets. Talking Stick Resort Arena will be hyped tonight with the Lakers coming into town and while LA will be a bit salty after a loss, I think the Suns ace another proving ground game here. Maybe Phoenix doesn't win straight up with a couple points of cushion on the spread, but I think this game goes right down to the wire and I'm betting on the hosts to get the job done.
