Suns at Pelicans picks and predictions


Suns 120, Pelicans 116


The last time this season the Suns faced the same team in consecutive games, they split them, losing the 1st meeting at home to Portland and then beating the Trail Blazers in the 2nd game.

Despite the Pelicans being 11-3 at home, the Suns have been too good this  season to lose a 4th consecutive game.

BET SUNS (+135).

Against the spread

This is the 1st time all season the Suns have failed to cover the spread in 3 consecutive games. They are 14-12 ATS overall this season, and have covered the spread in their last 4 Sunday games.

But if you like the Suns to bounce back for a win, the moneyline is the better option because of its positive odds.



Six of the Suns’ last 7 have had at least 227 total points and 3 of the last 5 for the Pelicans have as well. The teams went way over the 230.5 total in Friday’s game.
