We go over some of the best betting options for the NBA first round 2021 NBA playoff matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.

Will Phoenix put an end to Lebron and the Lakers?

The Phoenix Suns have a chance to close out the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 5 on Thursday. The Western Conference's second seed secured a blowout win in Game 4 when the reigning champs didn’t have Anthony Davis, and the star power forward could miss a second straight game. LeBron James will have to go all out to prevent his team from being eliminated early, Let’s go over the best betting options on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of tip-off.

Suns vs. Lakers, 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT

Pick ATS: Lakers -2

Los Angeles is only favored by 2.0 points despite the thrashing it took in Game 4, but it’ll be back on its home turf for Game 5. Davis (groin) will be a game-time decision and will likely swing the odds in the Lakers' favor.

Player Prop: TBD
