The Pelicans will be a very competitive team this year with the addition of CJ MCcollum and the return of Zion this offense will be one of the best. The Nets will be hoping that Ben Simmons can return to his old good days, he didn't look great in the preaseason tho. The Nets have dominated the Pelicans as they're 7-0 last 7 head to head games but this game will be different, the Pelicans will give them quite a battle and with the over cashing big time when these two meet I think that's the play. Take the over.
