The Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite. The Pelicans are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Suns last 8 overall. The over is 4-1 in Pelicans last 5 overall. The Suns are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in New Orleans and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

Once again, the Phoenix Suns and the small chalk is hard to turn down, simply because you don't get the Suns and these soft lines often. I wouldn't talk you off the ledge if that's the direction you're leaning. However, it's now been twice where the Suns have to rely on out of this world performances from CP3 offensively down the stretch, and it's a bit concerning. With no Booker around, the Suns can go through droughts, and I can't expect Chris Paul to come up like that every night. At home and pretty much a must win, the Pelicans have a fighting chance here. I'll grab the free bucket.
