The Pelicans are 16-7 ATS in their last 23 road games and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 Friday games. The Suns are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The over is 5-0 in Pelicans last 5 overall. The under is 7-2 in Suns last 9 overall. The Pelicans are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Phoenix Suns have a ways to go before they return to the team they were last season, but they're still solid and remain a tough out at home. As good as the New Orleans Pelicans have been out the gate, it feels like their entire roster is banged up. Ingram is out, Williamson is questionable with a hip injury, McCollum is questionable with a finger injury, Alvarado is questionable with a back injury. Those are just the key players who are licking their wounds. It's tough to get behind a team with so many injuries. Give me the Suns.
