Prediction

Suns 112, Pistons 103

Moneyline (ML)

The -200 line for the SUNS is probably a bit high with Rubio still sidelined, but New Orleans is just 1-5 away from home.

Phoenix is only 5-4 at home but has looked better of late and again gets a New Orleans team more banged up than itself.

New to sports betting? A $10 bet on the Bulls to win outright returns a profit of $5.00.

Line/Against the Spread (ATS)

The value play for this game is taking the SUNS with the -5.5 points at +105 odds. A Phoenix cover (win by six or more points) returns a greater profit of $10.50.

Phoenix is 9-4 against the spread (6-3 at home) overall this season and above the cover line by six points per game. New Orleans is just 2-4 on the road and falls an average of two points below projections.

Over/Under (O/U)

The bet would be a lean to the UNDER234.5 ( -115). With several more high-profile injuries, the game flow seems to indicate a lower-scoring affair. These two teams combined can barely muster 230 points per game.
