The New Orleans Pelicans continue on the road and will visit the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night. This is the fourth and last time these teams face off this season, the Kings have the lead 2-1 in the season series.

The Pelicans have won 3 of their last 5 games and are 16-23 on the road with a 34-44 record ranking third in the Southwest. The Pelicans are 23-25 against Western Conference opponents. New Orleans ranks third in the league with 11.8 offensive rebounds per game led by Jonas Valanciunas averaging 3.1.

Valanciunas is shooting 54.3% and averaging 17.9 points for the Pelicans. CJ McCollum is averaging 24.4 points over the last 10 games for New Orleans.

In their last 10 games, the Pelicans are 6-4, averaging 116.5 points, 45.2 rebounds, 24.8 assists, 10.6 steals and 4.0 blocks per game while shooting 48.5% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 108.7 points.

SACRAMENTO KINGS

The Kings have also won 3 of their last 5 games but are just 16-24 at home this season. They have a 29-50 overall record ranking 5th in the Pacific division. The Kings are 19-30 in Western Conference games. Sacramento ranks eighth in the Western Conference with 9.8 offensive rebounds per game led by Richaun Holmes averaging 2.1.

Harrison Barnes is averaging 16.9 points and 5.7 rebounds for the Kings. Donte DiVincenzo is averaging 2.6 made 3-pointers over the last 10 games for Sacramento.

In their last 10 games the Kings are 5-5, averaging 115.1 points, 41.4 rebounds, 25.0 assists, 7.1 steals and 4.9 blocks per game while shooting 47.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 120.2 points per game.

INJURIES: Davis, Fox and Sabonis are out.

BETTING TRENDS

New Orleans are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of New Orleans' last 5 games.

Sacramento are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games at home.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Sacramento's last 5 games.

Prediction

The Pelicans are playing good defensively allowing just 108.7 ppg in their last 10 games. The Kings are still dealing with some injuries and with these teams averaging 217 points in the last 3 head to head, I think the total has been set to high. Take the under.

PICK: Under 224.5 (-110)
