Houston Rockets vs New Orleans Pelicans Betting Picks
The Rockets have dominated their last 10 head-to-head meetings with the Pelicans, scoring an average of 115 points on 46 percent shooting. There’s a reason why the Rockets are the NBA Moneyline and NBA spread favorites in this game, the obvious is their high-octane offense.
Moneyline: The Rockets will win this game but they will need all the points they can get from their superstar duo of Harden and Westbrook.
ATS: A 4.5 point handicap won’t play a factor at all as the Rockets take their fourth ATS victory with a double-digit win.
TOTALs: This game will go under the NBA over/under totals of 242 points. Houston and New Orleans rank 2nd and 5th in points per game respectively, but the o/u point set for this game is just far too high.
Score Prediction: 120-110 Rockets
