The Pelicans are just 10-11 against the spread coming off a win this season but that is a bit misleading. In those 21 games, they’ve lost by an average margin of just 2.7 points. Conversely, the Wizards are 7-9 against the spread as a home favorite this season, winning by an average margin of just 1.4 points in those 16 games.

New Orleans has also had some success at the betting window in Washington. The Pelicans have covered the number in five of their last six road games against the Wizards and the road team is a remarkable 14-2 against the spread in the last 16 meetings between these two teams.

There’s not immense value in the Pelicans, but there is some as the spread is seemingly a full basket higher than it should be.
