OUR PREDICTION: Bettors wouldn't think it but the Suns have actually been one of the better underdog teams in the NBA this season, going 11-6-1 at the betting window when they're a dog. They've also been profitable coming off a loss, going 20-6-1 at the betting window in their last 27 games after losing in their previous contest. They're 10-2 against the spread in their last 12 games following a double-digit loss at home as well. The Lakers badly miss D'Angelo Russell, who will miss his 11th consecutive game due to a knee injury.
