Pelicans at Hornets: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Hornets 108, Pelicans 106
Money line (ML)
The Hornets (-190) are a little too risky for my liking at this price, especially since the Pelicans (+160) can very easily win this game outright.
Against the spread (ATS)
The PELICANS +5 (-115) have been cover kings lately, going 6-1 ATS across the past seven outings, and they’re 4-0 ATS as an underdog while winning two of those games outright. They’re playing good basketball right now, even without Williamson in their frontcourt.
UNDER 221.5 (-110) is the play here based upon the trends for both teams.
The Under is 13-4 in Charlotte’s past 17 games at home, and 5-1 in the past six as a favorite. The Under is 7-1 in the past eight for New Orleans, while going 4-0 in the past four as an underdog.
