Preview

New Orleans Pelicans will be meeting Sacramento Kings on Wednesday in New Orleans, this will be the third encounter between both teams as first two games ended in Kings win (112-99) in home and (113-109) on the road. So it's a double Revenge game for the Pelicans who are much better team right now than they were in the beginning of the season.

New Orleans Pelicans will enter this game after 2 impressive wins over the Lakers as a 2 point underdog and the Suns as 6.5 points underdog, Sacramento Kings on the other hand are in a bad form winning only 1 of last 5 games although they have beaten Oklahoma City Thunder last game by 20 points.

New Orleans Pelicans are 8-4 ATS last 12 games, 3-2 Straight up last 5 games, 6-1 Straight up last 7 games vs opponent from the Pacific Division and the Over have hit in 11 of last 14 games vs Sacramento Kings.

Sacramento Kings are 2-16 straight up last 18 road games, 5-10 straight up Vs opponent from Southwest Division and the Over have hit 8 of last 10 games for the Kings.

There's no new injuries for both teams.

Head to Head

Last 10 games have been pretty even between both these teams as the record is 5-5 Straight up and also 5-5 ATS in the last 10 games, O/U is 6-4 in these games as the Pelicans are averaging 116.4 points and the Kings are averaging 119 points. Kings have won last 2 games.

Prediction

Pelicans are playing much better after the trade and getting CJ McCollum who is playing really good offensively alongside Ingram and Valanciunas Who are in a good form too. Kings are really inconsistent winning only 1 games in last 5 overall so give me the team playing for a playoffs position, in a better form and playing at home. I like New Orleans Pelicans to cover here.

Pick: New Orleans Pelicans -4.5 (-110)
