The Lakers are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 7-2 in Lakers last 9 overall. The over is 8-3 in Suns last 11 overall. The Lakers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix and 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Los Angeles Lakers are simply a team I can't back with any confidence, as they continue to pile up the losses, fall apart in the second half, look depressed half the time and are losing their last five games by an average of 10.6 points. The Phoenix Suns win at home by an average of 9.2 points and win in the favorite role by an average of nine points. This is likely the Lakers funeral. Give me the Suns in a beat down victory.
