The New Orleans Pelicans travel to Phoenix to take on the Suns in what is expected to be a high-scoring game with the total set at 227.5.
The Pelicans recently had their seven-game winning streak snapped against the Utah Jazz as they lost both contests in a two-game mini-series.
The Suns, on the other hand, snapped a five-game skid with a 111-95 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night.
Two of those five consecutive Suns losses came against the Pelicans last week as there is no love lost between these teams. Both of those games were high-scoring matchups with the Pels winning 128-117 last Friday and pulling out an overtime victory 129-124 on Sunday. Expect another shootout on Saturday night in Phoenix.

The Parlay: (+258)
- New Orleans Pelicans Team Total Over 112.5 (-114)
- Devin Booker Under 28.5 Points (-113)
New Orleans Pelicans Team Total Over 112.5 (-114)
The Pelicans like to push the tempo on the road as they rank second in the Association in possessions per road game at 107.4. It’s no surprise to see them ranked second in field goals attempted away from home at 93.3 per game.
As a result, the Pelicans rank third in the league in field goals made per game and first in field goals made per contest away from home. The Pelicans also rank among the top 10 in Offensive Efficiency, Effective Field Goal Percentage and Offensive Rebounding Rate, per Cleaning the Glass. Their offensive attack which thrives on creating shots at the rim should thrive with Deandre Ayton out for the Suns tonight.
The two recent matchups between these teams last week saw both teams score at least 117 points in each game, and the Pelicans look primed for some more offensive success tonight.
Devin Booker Under 28.5 Points (-113)
Devin Booker had a rough shooting night in his first game back after missing two contests with a hamstring injury. He made just six of 22 field goal attempts on Thursday against the Clippers and struggled from beyond the arc, making just one of nine 3-point attempts.
His shooting slump started a few games prior to missing time as he scored only 20, 11, 17 and 14 points in these contests. These are far below his scoring average of 26.9 points per game this season.
Furthermore, Booker has struggled against the Pelicans and their length recently. The last two contests this season saw Booker shoot just 5-for-17 on December 9th for 14 points and 6-for-14 on October 28th for just 16 points. His point total is set too high for this contest and warrants a play on Under 28.5.
