4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pelicans +2.5
I’m liking the Pelicans to cover the two and a half points in this one. I’ll tell you now the trends don’t agree with this pick and I’m ok with that.
New Orleans has been scoring an average of about five more points per game and they are solid when it comes to passing the ball.
I see them having a solid night on defense while moving the ball around the perimeter for the open shot.
