Phoenix Suns - Los Angeles Lakers prediction
- Title : Phoenix Suns - Los Angeles Lakers prediction
Last time we saw another expected result was in Las Vegas Summer League last year. Things should go as expected even this time
The Lakers hold a 13-16 record and are currently in 12th place in the Western Conference. They are six games out of first place. Los Angeles has won three out of their last four games which includes winning back-to-back games to Denver and Washington.
The Lakers had a narrow win without Patrick Beverley and Anthony Davis against the Wizards, and tonight they face a better opponent.
The Suns snapped their two-game home losing streak, but have been very good at the Footprint Center this season, going 13-3 at home. Los Angeles has struggled away from home, losing three of their last four road contests. These two trends have been true in this rivalry as well, as the Suns have won the last four meetings between these teams in Phoenix.
There are many different factors going against the Lakers on Monday.
Back-to-back games are always difficult. They are also going to be without players like Davis, Wenyen and perhaps even Beverley this game.
This will allow for an easy win for the Suns as they have looked sharp in their last few games. The Suns defeated the Lakers by 10 points in November too. Suns led by Booker, who should be able to score many points and keep the Lakers at bay all evening.
I take the Suns to cover the spread tonight
Lakers +15 and under 238 total
|Prediction||Phoenix Suns -6|
