Suns vs Lakers Game 3 Picks and Predictions – 2021 NBA Playoffs

The Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers Game 3 NBA Betting Preview, Picks, and Predictions for Thursday, May 27, 2021

Thursday Night NBA Betting Preview:

Phoenix Suns vs Los Angeles Lakers Game 3 tips off this Thursday, May 27, 2021 at the Staples Center at 10:05pm et. The NBA oddsmakers have the Lakers listed as a -7 point favorite and over/under at 210.5 total points. The NBA betting public has 71% of their money currently behind the Suns as the road underdog.

On Tuesday, the Lakers picked up the game 2 road win against the Suns 109-102 and now come back to LA with the series split one game each. The oddsmakers aren’t seeing this series as even, since they now have the Lakers as -315 favorites to win the series outright. If Anthony Davis continues to play like he did in game 2, putting up 34 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists, it’s going to be tough for the Suns to pull off the upset.

The key for Phoenix to get that upset will be their 3-point shooting. They are eighth in the league this season from 3-point land dropping 37.6% of them, but in these past two games they are only putting up 31.4%. Devin Booker over these last 2 matchups against the Lakers has put up an average of 32.5 points on 46% shooting from the field. Booker will need even more help from his role players even though Cameron Payne and Deandre Ayton have been stepping it up. In Game 3, they’’ll also need better contribution from Chris Paul, but he’s playing with an injured shoulder, but maybe a day off with some meds can help him out.

Our eyes will be on Devin Booker in this game and we’ll be doing a player prop on him, so just text “FSN” to 99888 and you’ll receive the promo information to get on board. These props are now 21-5 overall this month, don’t miss out.

Phoenix is 1-5-1 against the spread in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and the over is 6-1 in Suns last 7 games following a loss.

Los Angeles is 5-0 straight up in their last 5 games at home, but just 2-5 against the spread in their last 7 games.
