Suns vs Pelican Game 4: Suns at Pelicans picks and predictions
Pelicans 107, Suns 103
LEAN PELICANS (+115) because I’d rather take any points I can get with NOLA, because if the Pelicans can do a little better against the Suns’ pick-and-roll. This series could even go back to Phoenix for Game 5.
NOLA is nearly doubling Phoenix’s rebounding rate this series, and the Suns won a nail-biting Game 3 despite shooting only 15.4 percent from beyond the arc. It’s difficult to win in today’s NBA when you shoot so poorly from behind the arc.
If CP3 or Ayton’s production drops slightly, Game 4 will be very winnable for the Pelicans, especially since role players shoot better at home, and a loss Sunday would end NOLA’s season.
However, CP3 has a knack for rising to the occasion in crucial moments, so the Suns could very well eke out a win, hence the LEAN PELICANS (+115).

Against the spread
BET the PELICANS +2.5 (-110) because they are the home team and require Game 4 like blood In the betting market, we are also seeing “reverse-line movement” (RLM) towards NOLA.
The Suns -2.5 (-110), according to Okbet.com, have the vast majority of the money and action, but they opened as 3-point favorites. RLM is a red flag because it begs the question, “Why are sportsbooks making the more popular team cheaper?” Hmmm.
Furthermore, I’ll take any basketball team scoring points if it can dominate the glass as the Pelicans have done in this series. Basketball is all about accumulating possessions to get more shots up, and with its advantage on the glass, NOLA is almost certain to win the battle of possessions.
My favorite bet in this game is the PELICANS PLUS THE POINTS.
LEAN UNDER 214.5 (-108) only because we’re late to the party on the total, but the presumed “sharp” side of the market predicts a higher-scoring Suns-Pelicans Game 4.
Most people of bets are on the Over 214.5 (-112), however, roughly 90% of the money is on the beneath. While it goes against the grain, it can be worthwhile to observe the money because the “wiseguys” placed uploads more money than the “average Joe.”
But I’m only leaning below 214.5 (108). The oddsmaker responded by lowering the total from the opening price of 217 points to the current price to ensure that the worst numbers were obtained.
