 This game has two solid plays staring at me in the face and I can’t help but grab the over on the game and the Spurs’ team total. Both teams are playing the over nicely lately and as long as everyone is healthy, look for this game to have a lot of offense from the Spurs.

Spurs vs. Pelicans

Once again we are faced with a fantastic total for the Spurs tonight. They are on the road against a good but not great defensive team and they have a total of only 210 points.

San Antonio has cashed the over in six of their last eight games overall and they are 26-18 on the year cashing the over. The Pelicans have cashed over the total in four straight games, 15-10 at home and there is a reason for that last number.

The Pelicans play pretty fast already, but they play really fast at home. They average 101.2 possessions per game at home and that is going to play tonight. The Spurs have already been great at cashing the over against pace-up teams and we have taken advantage of it time and again this season. It’s pretty much the only play I can get right this season.

I am also in no way concerned about the injuries. Tony Parker will be back tonight, Anthony Davis says he is going to play and Kawhi Leonard practiced yesterday, so he is probably leaning towards playing. If all of those guys suit up, this is a gold play tonight.

The Pelicans are allowing 115 points per game over their last five with their last meeting against the Spurs going over the total, I love it here in New Orleans. For a bonus play on this one, I also really like the Spurs’ team total of 108 ½ as long as Leonard is in action.
