Oklahoma City Thunder vs New Orleans Pelicans Betting Picks

The Thunder and the Pelicans have so far engaged in two competitive games this season and online bookmakers are obviously aware of this based on the basketball betting lines they released for this game.

Moneyline: The Thunder are 2-1 SU against the Pelicans in the last three meetings, but has an ugly 1-7 SU road record. New Orleans, who has 4-5 record at home, seems to be the ideal pick here. Their first two meetings showed us that the home team always had that extra kick to finish the game strong. Perhaps, the home crowd will rally Pelicans to victory this time around.

ATS: The 2-point NBA spread almost guarantees the SU winner covering the spread. This time, my pick is the Pelicans, who are 9-10 in ATS this season.

TOTALs: The total opened at 229 points. The total in the last two games between the Pelicans and the Thunder reached 119 in Game 1 and 115 points in Game 2. I pick UNDER.

Score Prediction: 115-110 Pelicans
