Phoenix Suns (-6.5) $1.90

Los Angeles hopes to avoid their third straight loss when they welcome the Western Conference leaders to the Staples Centre.

The Lakers are in real strife at the moment, with their poor form compounded by losing star center Anthony Davis to a knee injury.

Phoenix has already completed a snatch and grab at the Staples Centre this season, seeing off the Lakers 115-105, in a game that CP3 and Booker controlled from the get-go.

LeBron and the Lakers have been extremely underwhelming against decent sides this season, holding a feeble 5-10 record vs sides .500 and above.

The Lakers are 6-11 against the spread at home this season, with AD gone they are completely outgunned in this contest and should fall to yet another heavy defeat here.
