Both teams will be looking for a confidence building win, but as of recent performances from either team makes it hard to make an NBA pick for a side, that is why the Over seems so appealing. 

   Pelicans vs. Kings

The Pelicans seem to play the Warriors tough every time they play them. Despite being +17 NBA Odds underdogs last night, New Orleans played the Warriors to a 10-point game. However, they are right back at it on the second night of a back to back as +5 ½ NBA Odds underdogs against the Kings.

The total in this one is once again the play though. It’s been going down recently, but that does not scare me away from it. At 202 ½, the over is probably my best bet of the night.

The Kings don’t play at a very fast pace, but the Pelicans play at a pace of 100.2 possessions per 48 minutes and both teams’ defenses leave a lot to be desired.

The Kings are currently giving up 110 points per 100 possessions, while the Pelicans give up 105.4. Take the over on this one as well.
