The Suns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games. The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest. The under is 5-1-1 in Suns last 7 road games. The over is 4-1 in Pelicans last 5 overall. The Suns are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The New Orleans Pelicans are playing better ball as of late, but they're on the end of a back to back, and that's a spot that's tough against one of the top teams in the league. The Phoenix Suns not only have the rest advantage, but they win in the favorite role by an average of 9.5 points, and there's a chance they can get some key guys back in the mix. The Suns have blasted teams in these schedule spots these last two seasons. I'll lay the chalk with the Suns on the road.
