LINE MOVEMENT

Both the side and total have moved off the original numbers set by oddsmakers. Phoenix opened as an 8.5-point road underdog before the line moved a full point in favor of the Suns. The total has seen even more movement, jumping from 232.5 up to 235.5.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 61% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Pelicans to cover the spread. The total, meanwhile, has attracted 55% of the betting tickets on the under.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

Tyson Chandler is out for the Suns due to a neck injury while DeMarcus Cousins is out for the season for New Orleans after he suffered an Achilles tear.

BETTING STRATEGY

The Pelicans are an over-covering machine. The over is 4-1 in New Orleans' last five games overall, is 4-1 in its last five conference games, and is 5-1 in its last six games after scoring 100 points or more in its previous game. The over has also cashed in 27 of the Pelicans' last 37 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous contest. New Orleans doesn't play defense and can score at will. Don't over think this one.
