The Pelicans are riding some momentum, they lost against the Nuggets in overtime but they are playing their best basketball right now. The Grizzlies are one of the best teams in the league but they dissapointed in their last game vs Rockets. I'm backing the Pelicans to cover on this one as they're 7-3 last 10 head to head games vs Grizzlies.
