The Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers meet Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles in a pivotal Game 4 for both teams. The home team will look to take a 3-1 lead back to Phoenix while the No. 2 seed in the West is hoping to even things up. Here’s how bettors should approach this matchup.
Suns vs. Lakers, 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC
Pick ATS: Lakers -6.5
Davis is supposedly dealing with a knee injury, but he says he’s going to suit up. James looked sluggish at times in Game 3, but turned the heat up in the third quarter with 10 of his 21 points. The Lakers should eventually shoot better from deep, but the Suns can’t seem to figure out LA’s defense. Take the home team here.
Player Prop: LeBron James under 40.5 points, assists and rebounds (-134)
It’s rare to bet against James putting up big numbers, but the Lakers star hasn’t had to do too much offensively with Davis firing. Because the Lakers are going heavy with their center rotation, James also isn’t pulling down a lot of boards. It’s a challenging number, but the under is the more likely outcome given how the series has gone so far.
