This matchup is set to tip off at 10:05pm et at the Phoenix Suns arena. The Draftkings NBA Odds have the Lakers listed as a -1.5 point favorite and the over/under at 208.5 total points. 74% of the NBA betting public has their money behind the LA Lakers as the road favorite.
These two teams faced each other 3 times this NBA Regular Season and then Sunday in game 1 of this first round series matchup. Phoenix won and covered the spread in the 3 out of those 4 games. In Game 1, the Suns got the 99-90 win, which was the Suns first playoff victory in 11 years. The Lakers couldn’t stop Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton, who combined for 55 of their 99 points and 23 of their 47 rebounds. The Suns defense held the Lakers to just 43% from the field, 27% from 3-point land and Anthony Davis to just 13 points.
The Suns had a big scare with Chris Paul going down in the fourth quarter, but the good news is that it looks like Chris Paul will be playing in this game 2, but who knows how that injury will play out over the next couple games and how it will impact the chances of Phoenix beating LA in this seven game series.
This Game 2 should have a whole different story to it after the Lakers should be fired up after they had no players putting up over 18 points including Lebron James and Anthony Davis.
On the road this season the Lakers have the second best defense in the league that only give up an average of 105.4 points per game and on offense they’ve been subpar, scoring an average of 107.2 points per game.
