The Los Angeles Lakers are on the end of a back to back and may still be without Anthony Davis, but I'm not sure if it matters much. The Lakers are playing their best ball of the season and will pack value in the underdog role as long as this continues. The Phoenix Suns are talented, but they've underachieved up to this point, and that includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 2 points while allowing 49.3 percent shooting. The Suns are also dealing with a handful of injuries in their own right. Give me the Lakers and the points.
