New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans get here with a 2-1 record and lost their first game of the season at home against the Utah Jazz. Ingram left the Pelicans' home opener in the second quarter with concussion symptoms after a collision with teammate Naji Marshall. Williamson scored 25 points and he left the game following a scary fall on a dunk attempt, but he looks to have avoided a major injury.
CJ McCollum is leading the team averaging 23.3 points per game and 6.7 assists for the Pelicans while J. Valanciunas leads in rebounds with 13 for the team.
In their last 10 games the Pelicans are 5-5, averaging 113.8 points, 44.6 rebounds, 23.8 assists, 8.3 steals and 3.1 blocks per game while shooting 46.4% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 114.3 points.
Brandon Ingram is out and Zion Williamson is quiestionable for this game.
The Mavericks are 1-1 so far this season and lost their first game on the road against the Suns but after that outscored the Grizzlies 137-96 at home. They had a 60-36 record overall last season ranking 2nd in the Southwest. The Mavericks went 44-22 against Western Conference opponents.
Doncic is averaging 33.5 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists for the Mavericks. C. Wood is averaging 10.9 rebounds over the first 2 games for Dallas.
In their last 10 games the Mavericks are 4-6, averaging 105.7 points, 35.6 rebounds, 18.1 assists, 8.2 steals and 2.5 blocks per game while shooting 45.1% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 104.5 points.
Dallas are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against New Orleans.
Dallas are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games against New Orleans.
Dallas are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games on the road.
Dallas are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games when playing on the road against New Orleans.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of New Orleans' last 8 games.
The total has gone OVER in 12 of New Orleans' last 18 games against Dallas.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of New Orleans' last 6 games at home.
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 and they proved it against their first 3 opponents but they have 2 of their best players injured in Zion and Ingram. The Mavericks also looked great offensively and defensively as they just outscored the Grizzlies with a great performance from the All-Star Luka Doncic. With the Pelicans missing their best players the Mavs have a clear advantage and I think they should win this game and cover the spread.
PICK: Mavericks -4.5 (-110)
