Dallas Mavericks vs New Orleans Pelicans Betting Lines, Spread, Odds and Picks

The Pelicans (1-9) have dropped six in a row including their last three on the road. They conclude their road trip against Dallas (6-3) at the American Airlines Center. New Orleans open as 8.5 point underdogs for today’s game and are -400 for the win.

Luka Doncic was the talk of the league last Saturday night with his buzzer beater sealing a 107-104 victory over the Boston Celtics. It was Doncic’s best game of the season as he tied his season-high with 33 points and shot 57.1% from the field. Expect more of the same from Doncic as he attempts to lead the Mavericks to their third straight win.

Take the Spread: New Orleans +8.5

Hosts Dallas have been terrible against the spread. Their shooting stats are nearly on par with New Orleans so expect a close game. The Mavericks have shot 42.3% compared to the Pelicans’ 42% from the field and 30.9% compared to 32.7% from three. The Pelicans have the rebounding edge coming into today’s game, out-rebounding the Mavericks 46.7 to 45.9. Just keep an eye on the spread as the Pelicans are yet to cover when underdogs of 9.5 points or more.

Back the Under: Under 211.5 points

The Pelicans and all their opponents this week favor the under. New Orleans may have one of the worst defenses in the league but their offense is just as woeful. Dallas versus New Orleans won’t be a fast paced game – the Mavericks are 22nd in the league for pace and have the seventh worst offensive rating.
