The Suns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 30-11 ATS in their last 41 games overall. The Lakers are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 8-3 in Suns last 11 overall. The under is 6-1 in Lakers last 7 overall. The Suns are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles and 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings.

The Phoenix Suns are a tough team to turn down in the underdog role, as they've been one of the hotter teams in the league and one of the most profitable teams in the league since the NBA bubble. With that said, the Los Angeles Lakers and small chalk at home is probably a tougher spot to turn down, as they still have LeBron on their side and they're still one of the best defensive teams in the league. The Lakers are also coming off back to back blowout victories. I'll lay the bucket with the Lakers.
