Advice and prediction

As the betting lines indicate, Tuesday’s game will be an even battle between two expected playoff contenders in the Western Conference. Betting lines are particularly hard early in the year with little context to work on.

However, both teams have had strong defenses this season. In two of the three games this year, the Pelicans have held opponents under 100 points. The Suns, meanwhile, rank just above them in defensive rating.

Because of that, taking under 223.5 seems like the best bet for the night.

Prediction: Suns 105, Pelicans 100.
