Memphis and New Orleans usually play each other pretty well, but there are a few things going for this total that make it look like a nice value Saturday night.

Free NBA Pick: OVER 210Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes

The first two times these two teams played one another this season they fell under the total, but with the Grizzlies coming off the back-to-back, and with the Pelicans’ strong home offense, this might be the night they go over.

Memphis is 7-5 cashing the over in their last 12 games, and the further we get into the season and the further the Grizzlies get from the playoffs, they are going to let up on their defense some. On the road on the second night of a back-to-back is a perfect time to give up some points.

Plus, the Grizzlies are 5-2-1 cashing the over this season when playing on no rest and despite the fact that they play their division pretty tough, there is little chance of them slowing down Anthony Davis and a red-hot Pelicans offense.

New Orleans is averaging nearly 111 points per game over their last five and they average 113.5 points per game this season when they play at home. The great thing is they are also giving up about that much at home too due to a pace of 102.5 possessions per game in New Orleans. As a home team they are 14-6 cashing the over and they have cashed the over in nine of their last 10 home games as well.
