Two of the Western Conference’s hottest teams meet Sunday night when the New Orleans Pelicans take on the Denver Nuggets.
Denver has won eight of their last 10 games, while the Pels have won four in a row to climb to 10th place in the West and just one game behind the Los Angeles Lakers.
Who comes out on top on Sunday? Let’s break this down Odds on WynnBET:
Denver hasn’t been great as a home favorite this season, going just 10-14 against the spread, but the Pelicans are pedestrian underdogs on the road, posting an ATS record of 12-13.
New Orleans has really started to find a groove with CJ McCollum in the lineup as it has won its last four games by 15, 28, 30 and 34 points against the Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings and Utah Jazz Has.
It’s really hard to find an advantage in this clash as the Nuggets are 11th on offense and 3rd on defense over their last 10 games while the Pelicans are fourth in both categories.
For that reason, I’m going to pick New Orleans with the points as I really don’t have a strong feeling on either side in this matchup.
Lean: Pelicans +3.5 (-110)
