Two teams that can't wait for the 2015-16 season to finally end will square off tonight in New Orleans when the Pelicans host the Suns at 7:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Pelicans are 1.5-point home underdogs versus the Suns, while the over/under is currently sitting at 209 points, up from the opening number of 208.
New Orleans is severely banged up right now. Anthony Davis (knee), Jrue Holliday (eye), Alonzo Gee (quad), Eric Gordon (finger) and Tyreke Evans (knee) are all out of the season while Norris Cole (back) and Ryan Anderson (henria) are out indefinitely.
With Davis out of the lineup, the under has been cashing consistently for bettors in Pelicans' games. To be specific, the under is 1-7 with Davis out of the lineup, and is 6-1 in the team's last seven games overall. The under is also 4-1 in the Pelicans' last five games versus a team with a losing record and 4-1 in their last five games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
On the other side, the under is 4-1 in the Suns' last five games overall and 5-2 in their last seven road games. The under is also 9-4 in their last 13 road games versus a team with a winning home record and 23-11 in their last 34 games coming off a win.
