Lakers vs. Suns Odds & Picks: Los Angeles to Continue Streak

The Los Angeles Lakers will host the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night at Arena with tipoff set for 10:00 PM ET in what is a quarterfinal game of the NBA in-season tournament. Lebron James has led to the Lakers to a 4-0 record in group-stage play of the inaugural event and the top seed in the West heading into the win-and-advance quarterfinals. The Lakers have gone 9-4 in their last 13 games. Their opponent tonight, the Suns, have won eight of their 10 games since losing to the Lakers, including a seven-game winning streak that helped them to a 3-1 record in West Group A play. The Suns have still not had their three best players, Kevin Durant, Bradley Beal and Devin Booker on the court at the same time. Beal has played in just three games as he deals with a back injury, and he will remain sidelined on Tuesday.

If you’re just getting started, here’s a great rundown on how to bet on NBA games.

Lakers vs Suns Best Bets


Lakers -1.5 (-110 DraftKings)

These teams played once already last month when Lebron James scored 32 points to lead the Lakers to a victory in Phoenix. In fact, the Lakers have won the last four games in this series. James continues to defeat Father Time scoring at least 16 points in every game this year to go along with eight rebounds and six assists per game. Even with Devin Booker playing some of the best ball of his career for the Suns, the addition of Cam Reddish combined with the supporting cast of Anthony Davis, D’Angelo Russell and Austin Reaves should allow the Lakers to slip past the Suns at home.

Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to -2)
