Suns vs. Lakers Pick

NBA Predictions: Suns vs. Lakers 11/17/17

Are the Phoenix Suns going to bounce back from a blowout loss last night to win tonight at the Los Angeles Lakers? Tip-off is at 10:30PM ET.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, 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. The Lakers have won both of the meetings earler this season in Phoenix by scores of 132-130 and 100-93. Los Angeles is 4-2 straight up and ATS in six meetings since the start of last season. The over has gone 5-1.

The Suns allowed 90 points in the first half to Houston last night to lead to the blowout defeat. Greg Monroe led the way with 20 points and 11 rebounds in his Phoenix debut. Devin Booker contributed 18 points and 10 assists. Troy Daniels added 23 points and three rebounds off the bench. 

Brandon Ingram tallied 26 points and 11 rebounds to pace LA in the loss to Philly. Kyle Kuzma accounted for 24 points and seven rebounds. Jordan Clarkson added 20 points, six rebounds, five assists and two steals off the bench. The Lakers were outscored 32-25 in the fourth quarter.

The over is 19-9 in the last 28 meetings in Los Angeles. Phoenix is 1-7 ATS in its last eight games overall.

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.
