LeBron James under 24.5 points (-125)
The pace of this Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers game is going to be slower, and LeBron James still isn’t 100 percent. LeBron played good in the last game against the Golden State Warriors but he still only finished with 22 points.James will finish with right around that 22 point mark and the under will cash in this one.
Joel Embiid to not record a double-double (+190)
Joel Embiid is going to get the ten points but the question is going to come down to if he can grab enough rebounds. Two of the last three games, Embiid has finished with under six rebounds and with this number sitting at +190, the play is with the under.
Russell Westbrook over 22.5 points (-120)
If the Washington Wizards want to keep this game close it’s going to be about Russell Westbrook having a big game and that is going to be the case in this game. On the season, Westbrook is averaging 22 points per game and he is going to reach close to 30 points in this game.
Chris Paul over 32.5 points, rebounds, and assists (+104)
Chris Paul is the leader of the offense for the Suns, and he is going to have success in this game. Three games agoa against the Trail Blazers, he finished with 26 points alone, and he is going to have success scoring in this game which is going to lead to this game going over the total.
