With very limited player props until closer to game time, here's three of the best prop bets for the Lakers-Suns game, courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook.

Lakers vs Suns Props

1. Alternate Spreads - Suns -14.5 (+128)

The Lakers are just 11-27 on the road and 3-11 vs division opponents this season. Los Angeles has lost six games in a row and are on the brink of missing the play-in games to determine the conference’s final two seeds in the playoffs as they sit two games behind the San Antonio Spurs with four games remaining in the regular season. See player status and other game info below,, but expect Devin Booker, Deandre Ayton and Jae Crowder to return after resting in Sunday loss at Oklahoma City. The Suns are 3-0 vs. the Lakers this season, winning each by double digits, Repeat.

2. Home Team Total Points - Suns Over 122.5 (-110)

On March 13, the Lakers were taking back 7-points and were blown out at Phoenix 140-111. That included trailing 48-22 at the end of the first quarter. Star PG Chris Paul didn't even play in that contest, but he's been back in the lineup the last five games and averaged 10.5 assists per game. Now the Lakers list both LeBron James and Anthony Davis questionable for this contest, and LeBron did not play in Sunday's 129-118 loss to the Denver Nuggets. The Lakers have allowed at least 122 points to opponents in eight of their last nine road games and the Suns elite offensive efficiency is top 3 in the league.

3. 1st Half Spread - Suns -7.5 (-105)

The Suns have lost two straight games (on the road) and have begun resting players for the postseason since they have clinched the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Still Phoenix needs just one more win to set the franchise record for wins in a season, and starters should play more in this division home game with Wednesday's game at the LA Clippers a more likely spot to play starters fewer minutes. Phoenix should jump out early and build a big lead again against the Lakers. First quarter spread also has Suns favored by 3.5 points.
