BETTING TRENDS

Brooklyn are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games against New Orleans.

Brooklyn are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games against New Orleans.

Brooklyn are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games on the road.

New Orleans are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.

Prediction

The Nets have been on fire lately as they've won 9 of the last 10 games averaging 122.5 points per game on that strecht and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games against New Orleans. The Pelicans have one of the best records at home with 17 wins and only 4 losses. They outscored the Nets 130-108 earlier this season but Zion and Ingram played on that game and combined for 53 points and 16 rebounds and with the Nets on fire right now I believe they won't be able to keep up with their offense. Take the Nets.
