PELICANS @ JAZZ HARDWOOD HAMMER
New Orleans vs. Utah,
03/04/2019 21:00 EDT,
Score: 115 - 112
Point Spread: +9½/-105 New Orleans
The New Orleans Pelicans are 2-0 in March after posting back-to-back wins, first at Phoenix and most recently at Denver Saturday night (despite playing the 2nd game of a back-to-back set and resting Anthony Davis). They're 18-13 ATS as an underdog this season and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
I think the Pels will cover the spread here as they take on a Utah team very much in a letdown spot after four consecutive victories, the most recent over Milwaukee on Saturday.
Utah put a 132-111 beating on the Pels in the first meeting of the season, but note that NO is 18-11 ATS when trying to revenge a loss vs. an opponent.
Pelicans are 6-0 ATS in their last six Monday games. Jazz are 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 Monday games.
8* play on New Orleans Pelicans.
