The LeBron James-less Lakers head into Phoenix in hopes of winning their 4th game in a row, but standing in their way are the Suns, who are 8-1 at Footprint Center this season. Catch the game live from 10:00 pm ET on TNT as part of their Tuesday doubleheader. We’ll also have NBA Predictions for each of tonight’s games, but for now, let’s dive into our Lakers vs Suns Same Game Parlay.

Cameron Payne over 17.5 points (-113)

Devin Booker over 2.5 made threes (+100)

Deandre Ayton over 9.5 rebounds (+102)

Parlay odds: +658

Cameron Payne over 17.5 points (-113)

Cameron Payne continues to lead the Suns from the point-guard position as Chris Paul sits another game due to injury. His scoring has improved to 17.9 points per game over the last 8 played in just 30.1 minutes per game. His shooting has also improved across the board. He’s at a 47.3% efficiency from the field in home games, from three-point land he’s shooting 46.9% and from the charity stripe he’s at 92.3%. He’s gone over this line 4 times in his last 6 games, scoring over 20 points in each of those. Against a not-so-confident Lakers defense, he should have another solid scoring game.

Patrick Beverly is the only defender who could potentially slow him down here, but we all know Beverly’s priority will be to stop Devin Booker. LA allows the 9th-most points in the paint per game this season with opponents averaging 50 a night in that area. He can do most of his damage from there, but also from the three-point line, where he’s knocking down almost 3 from beyond the arc per game this month.

Devin Booker over 2.5 made threes (+100)

This season, Booker is shooting 38.2% from three and over his last 10 games that number has gone up to 39.4% on 2.6 makes per game. After a slow start against the Knicks in his last game, he was able to recover and knock down 5-of-8 threes. The Lakers are one of his favorite opponents — he’s scored 30+ in back-to-back games against them. In the last 3 meetings, he’s scored 6, 4 and 6 threes while shooting 53.3%. The last 2 games between the Lakers and Suns finished with 231 and 251 points, and tonight’s game could see a similar score with the road team playing at the 2nd-fastest pace in the NBA. That style of play suits Booker, who has a shoot-first mentality. I can see him knocking down 3 threes here.

Deandre Ayton over 9.5 rebounds (+102)

Anthony Davis has been on a rebounding tear lately, but the Lakers are still one of the worst rebounding teams in the NBA. Teams are averaging 55.2 rebounds per game against them this season and on the road that number jumps up to 55.8 a night. Ayton has matched up with Davis a total of 7 times in his career and is averaging 10.4 boards in those games. He’s gone over 9.5 boards 4 times, including in 3 of the 4 most recent meetings.

With the injury to Chris Paul, Ayton’s scoring has taken a dip, but luckily for us that hasn’t had too much of an effect on his rebounding. He’s cleared the 9.5 line 3 times in his last 4 games, and against the fast-paced Lakers, there should be plenty of rebounding opportunities. LA averages 102.9 possessions per game, which ranks 2nd only to the Warriors in the NBA right now.
