Dallas are looking like one of the better sides out West this season, moving to 4th spot with a 13-6 record. New Orleans have dealt with some difficult injuries all year and find themselves 14th in the conference at 6-14.
The Mavs are 4-point favourites in this one after getting 80% of the action at the 3.5 opener. I think the Pels are again becoming fairly undervalued in the market and I’ll take them plus the points again here.
Despite a myriad of injuries, I actually think New Orleans matches up quite well with Dallas here. This is especially true in the backcourt, with Holiday, Redick, and Lonzo providing solid resistance.
The Dallas offence is essentially completely reliant on Doncic and the Pels have a few defenders that can capably guard him. Both Holiday and Lonzo are great defenders for their position, while Ingram can provide a different look if needed.
Dallas are also primed for a letdown spot, heading out for the lone game of this road trip after an emotional win over LA. Given their record, the Pels are a team they could easily overlook here in what should be a close game.
Especially with all the action on Dallas, I like the contrarian angle of fading them at the peak of their value. The Pelicans are certainly capable of winning outright here, but the 4 points on offer provide great insurance if they can’t.
Tip: Dallas Mavericks at $1.52
