Magic vs. Pelicans Pick

Magic vs. Pelicans NBA Predictions Against the Spread 10/30/17

Will the host New Orleans Pelicans slow down the Orlando Magic Monday night at 8PM EST?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Pelicans are listed as a 7.5-point favorite to win the spread line. The over-under is 224 points.

The Magic are 4-2 after a 120-113 loss at the Hornets. The Pelicans enter at 3-3 following a 123-101 home win over the Cavaliers. The two meetings were split straight up last season and Orlando covered the spread both times. The total went 1-1.

New Orleans received a triple-double from DeMarcus Cousins as he tallied 29 points, 10 assists and 12 rebounds in the win over the Cavs. Anthony Davis had 30 points and 14 rebounds in his return from injury. Jrue Holiday had 29 points and seven assists, while E'Twaun Moore scored 24. The Pelicans outscored Cleveland 34-18 in the fourth quarter.

Jonathan Simmons scored 27 off the bench to lead the way in the loss at Charlotte. Evan Fournier contributed 23 points and five assists. Aaron Gordon had 17 points and nine rebounds. Terrence Ross added 17 points.

The Magic are 2-7 ATS in their last nine meetings at New Orleans. The under is 11-3 in the last 14 meetings in New Orleans.

Bet on Magic vs. Pelicans

With Davis back from his absence to rest an injured knee, the Pelicans dominated LeBron James and the Cavaliers. If the chemistry between Cousins and Davis is beginning to solidify, it could be scary for opponents going forward. With some rest from off days and staying at home, the Pelicans should cover the spread against a Magic team that has been surprising in the early going this season.
