New Orleans are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
New Orleans are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against Dallas.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Dallas' last 6 games.
Dallas are 4-8 SU in their last 12 games.
The total has gone OVER in 4 of Dallas' last 5 games against New Orleans.
The Mavericks have struggled lately as they have been dealing with injuries but at least they got Luka Donci back in the court and are coming from a win against the Pistons. The Pelicans have lost 9 games in a row and they have been also dealing with injuries but CJ and Ingram back so this a huge boost to their offense and with the over cashing the 69% of the time for them on the road I think that's the best play here. Take the over.
