New Orleans at Phoenix
Tuesday 04/12 10:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Phoenix -13.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: WIN
Through April 10 the Suns, playing with a high level of confidence, are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games. And the Hornets, in a struggling mode, are 5-7 ATS in their last 12. Expect a top caliber performance on both sides of the ball from Phoenix and a sub-par (par-for-the-course) performance on defense from New Orleans. Phoenix's momentum will carry on here as home favorites following 4 consecutive games as favorite are 65-28 (70%) ATS over the last 5 seasons when playing on back-to-back days. Yes, 13.5 is a lot of points but Phoenix might cover this one by 20 as they outscore the by 22 per game on average. One star on the Suns to keep rollin, rollin, rollin.
