Basketball Betting – Los Angeles Lakers at Phoenix Suns

February 5th, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting on Thursday is highlighted by the game on TNT as the Phoenix Suns host the Los Angeles Lakers. This is a great Western Conference rivalry basketball wagering matchup that is always intense and exciting.  The NBA betting odds on this game are close, just as the game should be.

Basketball wagering stats show that the Suns have won six of the last ten games against the Lakers.  Surprisingly though, the Lakers are 7-3 against the basketball betting line in those games.  The basketball wagering schedule shows that this is the first of a back-to-back situation for the Lakers as they are home on Friday against Denver.

The Suns have won four of the last six home games against the Lakers according to basketball wagering numbers.  Last year the Lakers won three of the four meetings against Phoenix including both games on the road according to NBA betting stats.  The scores of the two games in Phoenix were 130-124 and 119-98 in favor of the Lakers according to basketball betting statistics.  Both of those games went over the NBA betting total.  Five of the last six meetings overall between the two teams have gone over the basketball wagering line including four straight at Phoenix.

The Lakers look like the best team in the NBA so far this season and without question the best team in the Western Conference according to basketball betting experts. The Suns are in the mix in the West though and should give the Lakers a very good test in this game according to basketball betting experts.  It is always interesting when Shaquille O’Neal faces his former team so this game should be fun and a great basketball betting matchup.  The Suns have had difficulty in the past slowing down Kobe Bryant but that is nothing new, as most teams can’t contain him according to NBA betting numbers.  It will be up to Steve Nash and the rest of the Suns to put up enough points for Phoenix to stay close in this basketball wagering matchup.
