NBA Betting Trends

New Orleans

The Pelicans are 4-0 ATS in their last four games versus the Western Conference. New Orleans is 5-1 ATS in its last six games overall.


The Suns are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games versus the Western Conference. Phoenix is 1-4 ATS in its last five Thursday games.


The Suns have benefited from a home-happy schedule, but are perhaps starting to regress to where people expected them to be. The Pelicans are getting healthier by the minute and are close to getting Lonzo Ball back, perhaps as soon as tonight. I think New Orleans gives Phoenix a good game here and puts the pace to its liking, leading to plenty of points and a game that goes down to the wire. Go with the Pelicans.
