According to oddsmakers at, the Lakers are a 7.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 230 points.

Phoenix is 5-11 overall and 6-10 ATS after a 142-116 home loss Thursday night versus the Rockets. Los Angeles comes into play with a 6-9 record and 7-8 ATS following a 115-109 home loss to the 76ers.

Bet on Suns vs. Lakers 

The Suns are really looking their part lately as the worst team in the NBA or at least in the small pack of teams vying for that title. It's a young roster with some promising pieces, but as a whole they aren't getting it done. Los Angeles has already gotten the best of two meetings in Phoenix this season, so we expect things to continue in that direction tonight in LA.
