The Lakers are 22-45-1 ATS in their last 68 vs. Western Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Suns are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games. The Lakers are 1-8-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Phoenix and 1-5-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
We made money on the Lakers Tuesday night, but they're now coming off the end of a back to back. The Suns have been better with Knight back on the floor and get solid play from Booker as well. I can't back this Lakers squad on zero days rest. Give me the Suns and reasonable line.
