Phoenix Suns will be meeting New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday in Phoenix, This will be the second game in the first round in this matchup as phoenix have won the first game 110-99 after a poor performance from New Orleans in this game. Suns Covered ATS by one points and game went under the total, the Suns will try to get a comfortable 2-0 lead vs the Pels at home tonight as 9.5 points favourite.

New Orleans Pelicans had a poor shooting night on Saturday vs the Suns with 37% shooting from the field and 39% shooting from the 3 Pointers. Jonas Valanciunis was the best player on the floor for the Pels with 18 points and a stunning 25 Rebounds in this game (12 Defensive and 13 Offensive). CJ McCollum was the highest scoring player for the Pelicans with 25 points on 36% shooting from the field. Pelicans were tailing by 19 points at the Halftime so they have to get to a better start to have a chance vs this Suns team.

Phoenix Suns had an impressive game on both ends of the floor. Chris Paul was great and had a double double with 30 points and 10 Assists, Paul shot 75% from the field and 67% from the 3 Pointers. Devin Booker also had a good game with 25 points, 4 rebounds and 8 Assists on 42% shooting from the field. Phoenix are definitely the favourites to win this matchup and are one of the favourites for the title so they are most likely going to win this game and get 2-0 lead and see what happens in New Orleans afterwards.

Head to Head

Phoenix Suns have beaten the Pelicans 7 times out of last 10 games with 7-3 ATS record too, first playoffs game ended in a 110-99 so suns cover and game went under the total. The O/U record is also 6-4 to the Over with New Orleans Pelicans averaging 112 and Phoenix Suns averaging 118.2 Points a game.


Phoenix Suns covered the last game's ATS by only 1 point as 10.5 points favourite and game went way under the total. Phoenix are 5-0 to the Under last 5 home games and 6-0 to the under last 6 games overall, New Orleans are also 12-4 to the Under last 16 games so I like this game to go Under the total too as 221.5 is a little too high for this matchup and I like it to be defensive battle between both teams.

Pick: Total Under 221.5 points (-110)
