Before making any Pelicans vs. Suns picks, you NEED to check out the NBA predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned almost $9,000 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past three-plus seasons. The model finished up almost $600 on its top-rated picks last season and enters Week 3 of the 2021-22 NBA season on a stunning 106-71 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread. Anyone following it has seen huge returns.
The model knows the Pelicans have struggled without Zion Williamson (foot). New Orleans is 1-6 straight up, and its average margin of defeat is 9.3 points. The model also knows the Suns have been underwhelming since appearing in last year's NBA Finals. Phoenix is 1-3 against Western Conference opponents and has only beaten one team with a record better than .500.
Now, it has set its sights on Pelicans vs. Suns. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits in well over 50 percent of simulations! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any NBA picks.
