There is one NBA pick tonight.
New Orleans Pelicans PK against Brooklyn Nets for 3% of the bankroll.
The Brooklyn Nets have been hampered by injuries recently and we believe that is going to spell bad news for them as they play hosts to Anthony Davis and the visiting New Orleans Pelicans.
If there has been one area where the Nets have been the most vulnerable, it would have to be in the paint against opposing bigs and both Julius Randle and Anthony Davis are a tall task for any team. Add in the fact that Brooklyn is now down a big of their own, in PF Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, and their weakness in the middle should be much easier to exploit than usual. Depth is going to be an issue for the Nets tonight and we simply don't believe they will have the firepower to hang with the Pelicans if this game turns into a shootout.
Davis has been dealing with an illness and was an extremely late scratch on Monday night. With an extra couple of days of rest, we expect the Brow to come out of the gate firing in this one. There has been a lot of talk surrounding Davis as of late and his potential defection to another team, so we expect him to put all of his skills on display night in and night out until the talks die down and a decision has been made.
Brooklyn has proved that they are a team that can't be trusted to put forth a solid performance night in and night out. The Pelicans have had their struggles on the road as well, however, they are the team that we believe has much more talent at their disposal. Given the high total, it is expected that this game is going to be a shootout and if that is the case, it gives the advantage to the visitors. In what should be an entertaining game, New Orleans comes away with the victory.
