Phoenix Suns taking on New Orleans Pelicans. This game is an interesting one to handicap for me. The Pelicans are coming into the game limping, missing key starters as well as key players on the second unit. The line movement in this game is reflected by such. I put in Phoenix -6 in as soon as I could thinking it would balloon to -10 or more by now. However good news, it didn’t, yet.
Phoenix Suns to Dominate?
Yes, that is what I am betting on in this Western Conference. If Phoenix comes out aggressive they should be able to put New Orleans away early and ride the victory out.
However the bad news about a blow out as far as props go is the starters sitting in the fourth quarter because they are up 30 points.
The only player not on the injured list for the starters of the Pelicans is there big man Valančiūnas, so I didn’t want to force any Ayton props. Booker and Paul will probably be the first players to get rest in the second half, so let’s stay away from them, unless you want to sweat out some unders.
So instead of individual props, I am going to take the Suns in as many ways as possible.
- Phoenix Suns 1st Quarter -2
- Phoenix Suns 1st Half -4
- Phoenix Suns 2nd Half -3
- Phoenix Suns -7.5 (for the whole game)
I expect the Suns to jump out early and never look back, winning by 17+ points, if you are into alternate lines, maybe throw a little something on Phoenix -12.
