(NBA) Phoenix vs. New Orleans, 04/01/2024 8:00 PM, Score: 124 - 111
Money Line: -115.00 New Orleans (Home)
Result: Loss
These teams are jostling for position in the crowded NBA playoff race. Both want this victory. The Pelicans closed a 4-game road trip and have been playing some elite teams since coming home. Since returning, they've faced OKC, Milwaukee and Boston. The Suns are also strong. Though they did win here in January, the Suns aren't as good on the road as they are in Phoenix. That makes tonight important as the teams play again at Phoenix next week!

This is game 5 of a 5-game road trip for the Suns. They are looking forward to getting home. The Suns are 5-10 versus the spread and 7-8 straight up against teams from the Southwest, 8-10 ATS when off a loss of 10 or more points. New Orleans is 9-6 SU (10-5 ATS) off a loss of 10 or more. The Pelicans are also 13-4 straight up when revenging a home loss. New Orleans wins! **Western Conf. GOY**
