NBA Playoffs Betting: Odds Favor Lakers Over Suns In Game 2

  • The Los Angeles Lakers are -130 favorites over the Phoenix Suns in Game 2.
  • Despite taking home Game 1, the Suns are +110 underdogs.

PHOENIX – The Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns are set to face off in what could be a pivotal Game 2 in their seven game opening round series.

The Lakers, despite being the 7 seed, were favored coming into the series against the second seeded Suns. The series price now lists the teams at -110 each. NBA betting fans are starting to believe the Suns have what it takes to take down Lebron James and Anthony Davis, and the odds reflect that.

But despite a shift in those odds, sportsbooks still favor the Lakers to bounce back on Tuesday night.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Phoenix Suns Betting Odds

  • Moneyline: LAL -130, PHX +110
  • Spread: LAL -2
  • Total: O/U 210

Can The Lakers Even The Series?

The Los Angeles Lakers are struggling but remain the betting favorites on sports betting sites. The Lakers probably should’ve lost the play-in game against the Golden State Warriors and now lost Game 1 against the Phoenix Suns.

Los Angeles only put up 90 points in Game 1, unacceptable for a team with LeBron James and Anthony Davis on the roster. There’s a lot of issues that LA needs to figure out, and until they prove they have the solution, they shouldn’t be listed as favorites.

Betting on the Suns seems like a good value pick as they may not be underdogs for many more games if they continue to win.

Chris Paul Over 13.5 Points (-115)

Chris Paul has eclipsed this mark in 12 of his last 16 games. CP3 always does what is needed to be done in order to win, it very well could be scoring rather than making plays in Game 2.

Mikal Bridges At Least 2 3PT Made (-135)

Mikal Bridges’ odds for making at least two three-pointers should probably be a little shorter than what they are. Bridges has hit this mark in 11 of his last 13 games and should continue to benefit from defenses collapsing on Devin Booker and CP3.

Phoenix To Win + Jae Crowder 4+ Assists (+1019)

It’s a long shot, but it’s possible. Jae Crowder has had three or more assists in three of his last seven games. He even hit three assists last game and should’ve had four if Deandre Ayton shot the wide-open layup that Crowder fed him.

This has odds north of +1000 for a reason, but it’s definitely not outside the realm of possibility.

How to Watch

Game 2 is set to start at 10 p.m. and can be watched on TNT.
