|LAL (-117) @ pinnacle|
I'm playing LA on the moneyline. While the Suns have been playing well, I don't think they're ready to go on the road and defeat the defending champs. After their 4-game skid, the Lakers have gotten back on track. They've won two in a row. They followed up a 9-point win over Portland by blowing out Golden State. The game was essentially over by the end of the firs quarter; the champs were clicking on all cylinders. Note that LA is 43-18 SU its last 61, off a double-digit win. The Suns are still 11-24 SU their last 35 divisional games. Last meeting was here and the Lakers were laying -13.5. They won by 25. They may not win by that much tonight but I absolutely expect another victory.
