The Lakers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Suns are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Lakers last 5 overall. The over is 7-3 in Suns last 10 home games. The Lakers are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Los Angeles Lakers continue to show us time and time again that they can't be trusted in any spot, especially against the better teams in the league. The Lakers are barely beating the bottom feeders of the league, and they need a 37-year-old LeBron to play out of this world to do it. The Phoenix Suns win at home by an average of 8.2 points, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 9.1 points. As I've said before, I have zero confidence in the Lakers these days. Give me the Suns.
