The NBA Odds for the total on Sixers and Pelicans is a little low for the two faster paced teams. While both have had their issues on offense, at 204 ½, the over is a fine play for the short slate.

Sixers vs. Pelicans

Both the Sixers and Pelicans have had their respective troubles scoring the ball this season, but their defenses have had as many problems. At times they have played good defense and at times they have looked pretty bad.

Against one another I think offense is going to be the main cog tonight. Even if it isn’t, both teams are playing a pretty fast pace this season and that could even quicken tonight.

Both of these teams have cashed the over at 12-10 this season, but the Pelicans have cashed the over at 9-3 at home this season. Considering they are averaging and allowing about 109 points per game at home, I think the Sixers will score 100-plus tonight.

Joel Embiid will start on Thursday, improving the Sixers’ chances on offense and even with some of their other injuries I see the over cashing in what could be a pretty fast paced game.
