Best Bet: 513 Phoenix Suns -6 @ LA Lakers
1.) Lakers simply have nobody to bring the ball that is any kind of threat against a solid Suns defense. Lakers are 2-6 ATS without Dennis Schroder this season, with a -9 ATS margin on average in those games. LA has played 3 games without Schroder or LeBron James this season; in those games, the Lakers are averaging only 96 points. Now they face one of the best backcourts in the league with 0 guards to match u. Sorry, Alex Caruso but you're no Chris Paul.
2.) Road favorites between 5 and 10 this season are 59% ATS this season (95-66-3), including 68% since April 1st (30-14-1). That of course continues a multi-year trend. Road Favs between -5 and -10 are 57% ATS over the last 4 NBA seasons (378-288-4).
