New Orleans Pelicans vs Brooklyn Nets prediction

The New Orleans Pelicans have had a handful of blowout wins over the last month or so, and they're a profitable 37-28-2 ATS on the season. The Brooklyn Nets aren't winning or covering numbers, and they're 29-36-3 ATS on the season. The Pelicans smoked the Nets back in January by a score of 112-85. It's hard to make a case for the Nets and the way they constantly lose in ugly ways. Decent sized line for a road team, but the Pelicans should win this game by double digits.
