The Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns will square off tonight (May 25th) in an all important game 4 of their NBA Western Conference Championship series. Game time for game 4 is set for 9:00 PM EST and is being played in Phoenix, with the Lakers leading the series two games to one. The Phoenix Suns look to square things up at home where they have been stellar all season long, but the Lakers have plans of going back home with a 3-1 series lead and chance to finish off the series in front of their home crowd. Most of the talk prior to this game 4 is surrounding injuries on both sides. Steve Nash suffered a small fracture in his nose in a collision during game 3, but will be in the lineup for the Suns in game 4. Lakers Andrew Bynum is also expected lay through his small meniscus tear in his right knee, which is definitely affecting his play a little bit. After winning the first of two games at home, the Phoenix Suns were 1 point favorites when the betting lines opened. The public money has since been on the Lakers, who are now the 1.5 point favorites early Tuesday morning. This game 4 of the Western Conference Finals can go either way, and promises to be exciting – make sure you get your bets in! Suns vs Lakers Game 4 betting odds, spread and my personal picks and predictions are below.
Suns vs Lakers Game 4 Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Lakers -1.5
@ Phoenix Suns +1.5
Suns vs Lakers Game 4 Picks and Predictions for Betting:
Spread Pick – After being up 2-0 heading into Phoenix Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers knew they needed to take one game before heading back home. After failing to do so in game 3, I look for the Lakers to come out hard here in game 4 and continue their march to the NBA finals again. The Lakers are 8-1 straight up and against the spread in their last 9 playoff games coming off a straight up and spread loss, and they are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games as a favorite. Phoenix is just 13-26-1 against the spread at home in the playoffs when coming off of a win. Kobe Bryant and the Lakers rebound tonight with a win – BET THE LAKERS -1.5 at (-110)!
Game Total Pick – After three straight games going over the posted total we now see the highest total yet of this series, set at 221. Three of four games so far in this Suns/Lakers series have gone over tonight’s 221 total. The over is 9-1-1 in the Lakers last 11 games overall, and 6-1 in the Suns last 7 home games. After totals of 227, 235 and 236 it would be really hard to go with the under tonight – I am sticking with the trend of high scoring games in this series. BET THE OVER 221 at (-110)!
