Against The Spread Pick
The rest of the Western Conference better watch out because it looks like the New Orleans Pelicans are going to be a problem. The Pelicans come into this game having won three straight and they all were impressive. One was a double digit win over the Celtics, while another was a blowout win over the Grizzlies. The ROckets come into this game off a win, but they still have some issues that need to be worked out going forward. Over the last five games the Rockets are giving up over 120 points per game, and that is going to hurt them in this game. The Rockets are 3-7 against the spread in their last ten games overall. This is a game the Pelicans could win, but take the points just to be safe. This is one of the top plays on the board.
Over Under Pick
This total is so high, which makes this only a lean, but the play is with the over to cash. The Grizzlies are coming off a game where they scored 139 points and it wouldn’t be all that shocking if they got close to that number in this game.The Rockets offense is averaging 121.4 points per game and should be able to attack a Pelicans defense that has been weak. The over is 14-3 in the Pelicans last 17 games overall.
