Suns Vs Lakers ATS Prop Bet for Game 6, June 3
There is truly nothing like watching Lebron James with his back against the wall in a win-or-go-home game. The Lakers looked like a Lebron James’ Cavs team whose second best player was JR Smith on Tuesday night and I’m genuinely not sure as to whether or not the Lakers will be able to avoid elimination in their own building. This is not a spot that Lebron is in often and honestly, if they win this game and the series, more props to him.
The Suns won Game 5 by a score of 115-85 and it quite literally was never even remotely close. In fact, Lebron literally walked off the floor with five minutes left in the fourth quarter. Tonight should be different and playing away from Phoenix is a huge advantage for the Lakers but with a potentially banged up AD who won’t be 100 percent, this is going to be a tough one for the Lake Show to pull off.
Against the Spread (Suns +2)
Maybe I am a fucking idiot. Maybe I just have this blind confidence in the Suns. Maybe I am actually a genius. But I don’t think LA wins this game tonight. I had the Suns in six games from the get go and I am standing by that tonight. Sure, AD wasn’t on the floor in Game 5, but even in Game 4, the Lakers shot just 39 percent from the floor and an even worse 32 percent from beyond three. Those numbers were worse or as bad in Game 5 and it is clear that the Suns are dominating in the paint. I think they’ll continue that scoring and I don’t mind getting two points on this bet.
Total (UNDER 207)
Both of these teams played at a very slow pace during the regular season and so far in this postseason, this series has the fourth-slowest pace in the league. The UNDER has hit in four of five games so far with a push as a result in the other. I just broke down those offensive numbers from LA in the last two games and the Suns defense with its best players will be out there until the very end tonight if there is a chance for them to close out this series.
207 points or more have been scored in just one single game so far in this series and again, with all the struggles the last two nights with LA’s shooting, it is a bad bet to start assuming they can hit these shots out of nowhere.
Prop Bet – Chris Paul UNDER 8.5 assists
If Chris Paul was 100 percent healthy, I would never make a bet like this but it is clear that after his Game 1 injury, he just isn’t the same right now. On top of that, he re-injured his shoulder in Game 5 and probably isn’t playing nearly at his max. If the Suns go up big or if they go down big, I would lean towards Monty Williams getting Paul out of the game.
On top of that, he has gone over 8.5 assists just one time in this series. He is usually topping our around six right now and we aren’t that sure how much of a role he will actually have tonight.
