New Orleans enters play tonight with a 4-6 record over its last 10 games. That said, the Pelicans are 5-4-1 at the betting window over that 10-game span despite being 31-33 against the spread on the season and 15-16 ATS on the road this year.

OUR PREDICTION: The home team has been an excellent play for bettors in this series, going 7-1-1 at the betting window in the last nine meetings between these two teams. The Pelicans are 17-7-1 against the spread in their last 25 games versus the Hornets overall, but they're winless at 0-3-1 against the number in their last four trips to Charlotte. The Hornets are 5-2-1 at the betting window in their last eight games overall and should cover tonight as a small home favorite.
