Mired in yet another losing streak, the Pelicans (11-15) will look to break out in a big Western Conference clash against the Grizzlies (11-11) on Tuesday, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.
For the third time this season, New Orleans has a losing streak of at least three games. The current one is more frustrating for most because it was preceded by a four-game win streak. Fortunately for the Pelicans, one of those four wins came against the Grizzlies.

Advice and prediction
The Pelicans are in some kind of rut right now, particularly defensively. On the season, New Orleans is 28th in defensive rating. Over the last five games, it is 29th with a rating of 125.3. In that five-game span, the Pelicans are second in offensive rating.
This would naturally lead to picking the over. While the two teams did not hit the over (231.5) in their meeting earlier this season, the Pelicans’ defense has only gotten worse since. Take over 231.5 and continue doing so until the Pelicans prove they can stop anyone.
Prediction: Grizzlies 119, Pelicans 115.
