Spurs vs. Pelicans Prediction

NBA Predictions: Are the Spurs a bad bet to cover vs. Pelicans? 1/27/17

Are the Spurs a bad bet to cover against the Pelicans when the two teams clash tonight at 8:00PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Pelicans are 6-point home underdogs versus the Spurs while the over/under currently sits at 210 points. While the point spread hasn't moved, the total hit the board at 208 before being bet up to 210.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

The Spurs have won five consecutive games, including a 108-106 victory in Toronto on Tuesday night. Tony Parker is probable to play tonight despite suffering a foot injury that held him out of Tuesday night's game. Kawhi Leonard also returned to practice and is listed as questionable for tonight while dealing with a sore left hand. Gregg Popovich said that he'll be taking a consecutive approach with bringing back Leonard.

The Pelicans, meanwhile, have alternated wins and losses over their last four games, dropping a 114-105 defeat versus the Thunder on Wednesday. In that loss, Anthony Davis finished with eight points in just 16 minutes. He didn't come out to join his team on the bench after leaving the game due to a right quad contusion. He's probable for tonight's game, however.
