L.A. Lakers players celebrating

Even though the Thunder and Warriors have a higher total, the Suns and Lakers is the game you want to bet the over on the NBA odds. Both teams play very fast paces and they are both allowing about 110 points per 100 possessions.

Suns vs. Lakers

After hot starts to the season, both the Suns and Lakers' offense have slowed down. Injury has plagued the Lakers' backcourt, but against the Suns at home shouldn't hurt that too much. However, with NBA Odds of just 218 from Heritage, the over is screaming for a play on this game.

I think this is going to be the highest scoring game of the night, however, it has a lower total than the Thunder and Rockets. The only reason for this is the sportsbooks are trying to trap people into taking the over in that game.

However, the two teams in this game not only have bad defenses, but their pace is faster than both the Thunder and Rockets. The Suns and Lakers are averaging 101 and 99 possessions per game and considering their defenses are allowing between 110 and 111 points per 100 possessions, grab the over on this one before the NBA basketball lines goes up.
