Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers Odds For Game 3

You really didn't think the LeBron would let the Lakers go 2-0 down did you? We're now into the third game of this series after the Lakers beat the Suns by 7 points on Tuesday night, managing to maintain a lead that they took in the first quarter. 

The series is now in the balance and it feels like the Suns really need a win here to kill the momentum for LA. The sportsbooks don't seem overly confident and make the Lakers favorites again. In the Suns vs. Lakers odds market, it's the Lakers who are favorites, and heavily so, with -230 odds to win again on Thursday night.

After that 7 point victory on Tuesday it's no surprise that the spread gives the Suns 5.5 points. The spread for Game 2 was only 1.5 points but a dominant performance has pushed that wider. On their home court and back to their best, we see the Lakers -5.5 at -110 with PointsBet, who have the best odds for both sides of the spread.

Phoenix Suns Preview

After Game One there was always a concern around Chris Paul, who went down injured in that one. He managed 23 minutes in Game Two but clearly wasn't at his best. The Suns missed his playmaking ability and despite some good scoring from Deandre Ayton and Devin Booker, it wasn't enough.

We'll hopefully see Chris Paul in better condition in Game Three but failing that we'll need to see more from Devin Booker's supporting cast, the likes of Mikal Bridges need to do more with their time on the court.

Los Angeles Lakers Preview

What a difference a game makes. In Game One we saw the Suns lock down Anthony Davis and really restrict him from playing his best ball. They weren't able to do that again in Game Two with AD outscoring everyone, putting up 34 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists.

Anthony Davis put on a real clinic and the concerns that experts had about the Lakers size, proved to be warranted. They'll be doubling down on their efforts to slow him down in this matchup and the Lakers will need to ensure that the Suns don't manage it.
