Preview

New Orleans Pelicans will be meeting San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday in New Orleans for the first game of their play in tournament as the winner will be facing the Clippers and the winner in that match will be facing Phoenix Suns in the first playoffs round, they have played eachother 4 times this season that ended in a 3-1 lead for the Spurs.

 San Antonio Spurs have been in a great form lately and they would like to keep the momentum going for this important game that can be the last of their season if they lost to the Pelicans. Spurs are 6-0-1 ATS last 7 games. Spurs now are on 3 game losing streak after they were on a run of matches, they have lost to the Mavericks, Warriors and the Timberwolves but they have been covering in those games anyway.

New Orleans Pelicans have been shaky lately and inconsistent although they have won 6 of last 10 games but it's still won't be enough to get to the next game and go to the playoffs if they didn't improve against the Spurs. Ingram, Jonas and Graham are all probably in this game but they shouldn't have any problem playing, Zion is still out as well.

Spurs are 6-0-1 ATS last 7 games.

Spurs are 8-1 ATS last 9 road games.

Spurs games have gone Under in 12 of last 18 games.

Pelicans games have gone under in 7 of last 8 games when playing at home Vs the Spurs.

Pelicans are 0-7 ATS against the Spurs when playing at home.

Pelicans are 4-13 straight up last 17 games played on Wednesday.

Head to Head

San Antonio Spurs have dominated this matchup in the recent years with 8-2 straight up and ATS records and it have been going way under the total in those 10 games with O/U record of 2-8 to the Under with San Antonio Spurs averaging 111.2 and New Orleans Pelicans 109.6 points a game, so the Under is looking good here too.

Prediction

New Orleans Pelicans and San Antonio Spurs are kind of similar but I like the home teams in games like this and I can trust the Pelicans more than the Spurs, but the Spurs are in a good forms and can cause troubles for the Pelican team so I think it will be close for 3 quarters then New Orleans will finish it with a win in the 4th quarter. The Under is also a good look as both teams have been going that way lately but I like the Pelicans more in this game so give me the home team here.

Pick: New Orleans Pelicans -5 (-110)
