Will the host New Orleans Pelicans blow out the Atlanta Hawks tonight when the two teams meet at 8PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Pelicans are a 9.5-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under is set at 217 points.

Atlanta comes in with a 2-11 record and is 5-7-1 ATS after a 113-94 loss at the Wizards. New Orleans is 7-6 overall and 9-4 ATS following a 111-103 home win over the Clippers. The two meetings were split 1-1 straight up and ATS last season. The under went 2-0.

The Hawks were led by Taurean Prince with 19 points and three steals in the loss at Washington. Dewayne Dedmon contributed 13 points and eight rebounds. Marco Belinelli scored 15 off the bench. Atlanta trailed 49-42 at halftime and was outscored in every quarter.

New Orleans was paced by DeMarcus Cousins with 35 points, 15 rebounds and five assists in the win over Los Angeles. Anthony Davis accounted for 25 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. E'Twaun Moore added 18 points and four boards. The Pelicans led 63-58 at halftime and padded the score in the second half.

Bet on Hawks vs. Pelicans

The interior of Cousins and Davis will be way too much for Atlanta to handle. Dedmon can only do so much defensively. Look for New Orleans to overwhelm Atlanta on the glass, leading to easy points and an easy win.
