Lakers vs. Suns - Picks Of The Day, Feb 15th

Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers and Suns are going nowhere this season and right before the All Star Break, this game could look more like a pickup game than a competitive NBA contest. That should lead to plenty of points and not much defense from both teams.

However, if you’re looking for a complete opposite style of game here on this big Wednesday, look no further than the Lakers and Suns. This one should turn into a track meet tonight and considering these two have cashed the over against one another in their last three meetings dating back to last season, I’m going with it here tonight.

The Suns have been very consistent at cashing the over at home. Their fast pace and poor defense are the biggest two reasons for this and they are 16-9 cashing the over at home this season. They are giving up nearly 112 points per game at home and over their 10 divisional games this season, they are allowing 117.6 points per game.

Plus, against the Lakers they have allowed 115 and 119 points in each of their first two games this season. Combine that with the Lakers, who are also allowing over 112 points per game on the road and the formula says go over tonight. Right before the All Star Break, teams like the Lakers and Suns have nothing to play for except their vacations, so look for this one to be loose and high scoring.
