A money line bet on the home underdog Phoenix Sun will earn you +135 odds for your wager.

The Lakers have owned Phoenix this season with two wins and point spread covers by 12 point or more. They have put up an average of 105 points a game against Phoenix this season. LA has won three straight including a 111-99 home win on Friday night against the Suns. The Lakers have exploited the NBA’s worst defensive teams this year. They will be the more rested team tonight as they play their fourth straight game where they have enjoyed at least one day of rest between games. So look for LA to have their legs tonight with no back to back situations in a while.

Phoenix on the other hand had to endure a grueling scheduling week. This will be their fifth game in seven days. They had to play a back to back to back this week which took a toll on this old team. It explains why the Suns are 0-4 straight up and against the spread over their past four games. The Suns defense has taken a huge hit lately as they have given up 101 points and 46.5% shooting in their past five games. The Lakers success against the Suns is due to Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum inside paint presence. The Suns roster is poorly constructed to handle teams with size and strength inside the paint and the Lakers have exploited this weakness. The Suns will have to be hot from the outside but in a fatigue week that could be hard.
