Total: 189.50 | -110.00 Over
The New Orleans Pelicans will be playing their third game in four nights, and second in as many nights when they host Charlotte tonight. Both teams rank among the league's best in opponent's scoring average, and I think we should see a tight defense game here.
The Pelicans are owning the glass, leading the league with 52.7 RPG. Anthony Davis is doing it all, leading the team in scoring and rebounding, and leading the NBA in blocks.
Keep in mind I placed a cheeky little bet on Davis to win the Defensive Player of the Year at 8-1 odds. He led the league in blocks last year, and I think he's likely to do it again this season.
Five of the last eight in this series have gone under, and the total in tonight's game is higher than it was in six of those games. The Pelicans are tied with Denver for the lowest shooting percentage in the NBA, and the Hornets haven't been much better.
