The Phoenix Suns are slightly favored in sports betting for Game 6 against New Orleans.

Suns Slight Arizona Sports Betting Favorites in Game 6 at New Orleans
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

The Phoenix Suns responded strongly in the series against the New Orleans Pelicans, securing a commanding 112-97 win in Game 5.

The Arizona sportsbooks are optimistic about the team’s prospects on Thursday night following their 15-point win, as they gear up for a crucial Game 6 against the opposing team in New Orleans.

Mikal Bridges’ exceptional performance, scoring a career playoff high of 31 points, was the key factor in the Suns’ dominant win in Tuesday night’s game.

Bridges was joined by experienced guard Chris Paul, who rebounded from a disappointing four-point showing in Game 4 to score 22 points and provide 11 assists.

It is still unclear whether versatile guard Devin Booker will be available for Game 6 as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury he suffered in Game 2.

The Suns and Pelicans will play against each other at 4:30 p.m. Arizona time on Thursday on TNT at Smoothie King Arena in New Orleans.
