In this game, I will be keeping a close eye on where the lines open. If Brooklyn opens as anything above an 8 point favorite, I will be taking the Pelicans to keep the game within that number.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: New Orleans Pelicans ML
Both the Pelicans and Nets prefer to play an up-tempo style of basketball. However, when each team plays other fast-paced teams, the games average fewer possessions than expected. As much as New Orleans has struggled to pick up wins, they manage to play their best basketball against fast-paced teams.
A key to this matchup will be if New Orleans can defend well enough to keep this game in reach. When playing against some of the most efficient teams in the NBA, the Pelicans give up 7 points per possession above the league average. However, they only lose these games by a margin of 4 points.
