It’s a stacked night of NBA action with 14 games on the slate right before the All Star Break. It should be a fantastic night of basketball, and an even better night to make some picks. 

  Pelicans vs. Grizzlies

The Pelicans drew the short end of the stick when it comes to the division they play in, but they have tended to play the Grizzlies and the rest of their division pretty well this season. While New Orleans is only 2-6 SU and ATS in the eight divisional games they’ve had so far this season, they have played Memphis to single digits in their first two games.

How the series shifts back to Memphis and while we are close to the break and teams are playing with less defense, this game should see a lot of defense and potentially very little scoring. The last time these two played from Memphis, the final score was 89-83. I doubt we see that low of a score tonight, but I’m still banking on the under.

The Grizzlies are 20-8 cashing the under when playing at home this season. They are giving up 95.1 points per game at home and over their last eight home games they have allowed fewer than 100 points in five of them.

The Pelicans are by no means an offensive powerhouse and I don’t expect them to turn into one suddenly tonight in Memphis. Add the under to your NBA Picks.
