Pelicans vs. Bucks Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Pelicans, Bucks go over total? 2/25/18

Is a high-scoring game that hits the over in the cards this afternoon when the New Orleans Pelicans play the host Milwaukee Bucks at 3PM ET?

CURRENT ODDS

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Bucks are listed as a 4-point favorite on the spread line. The total sits at 222 points.

LINE MOVEMENT

Milwaukee opened as a 5-point favorite before the line dropped, while the over-under has gone up from 220.5. If you are betting the total, it can be found at 222.5 at certain books.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of Sunday morning, 62 percent of public bets are coming in on the Bucks. Online wager info also states that 53 percent of bets are siding with the under.

INJURY TO WATCH

Ever since DeMarcus Cousins went down for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon, the usage rate of Pelicans forward/center Anthony Davis has skyrocketed. He is coming off a monster game in an overtime 124-123 home win over the Heat and can be expected to put up another huge stat line tonight. For the Bucks, backup center Tyler Zeller is questionable with an illness. 

BETTING STRATEGY

If there is a New Orleans game, there are bound to be a lot of points scored. Even against the slow-paced Heat, the total went to 247 points with the help of overtime. Milwaukee is improved defensively, but has shown it can also put up huge scoring numbers such as in its 122-119 upset overtime win at Toronto in the most recent contest. New Orleans won 115-108 the last time these two teams met in December and I expect the same today and quite possibly an even higher final score.
