Advice and prediction
In the previous meeting between the two teams, the Pelicans hit possibly their lowest point of the season in Minnesota to cap off a disappointing road trip, falling to the Wolves 120-110.
While there have been some big wins since then for New Orleans, they also have mixed in some frustrating losses. The Pelicans tend to play to the level of their opponent.
While the over has long been the calling card for Pelicans bets, 237.5 seems a touch high and betting the under isn’t fun. Instead, taking the Wolves +8 until the Pelicans can prove they can beat bad team handily.
Prediction: Pelicans 120, Timberwolves 114
