Thunder vs. Pelicans NBA Predictions Against the Spread 11/20/17

Are the New Orleans Pelicans going to protect their home court tonight when they welcome in the Oklahoma City Thunder at 8 PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Thunder are a 3-point favorite on the spread line. The over-under sits at 214 points.

Oklahoma City enters with a 7-8 record overall and 7-8 ATS after a 104-101 loss at the Spurs. Memphis comes in at 8-8 overall and 9-7 ATS following a 146-114 loss at the Nuggets. The Thunder went 4-0 straight up and 4-0 ATS in four meetings last season. The over went 3-1.

In the loss at San Antonio, Carmelo Anthony led the way with 20 points along with six rebounds and three assists. Paul George registered 18 points, seven rebounds, six assists and three steals. Steven Adams had 16 points, eight boards and two blocks. The Thunder led 32-15 after one quarter, but were outscored in every ensuing stanza.

The Pelicans were paced by Anthony Davis with 17 points, five rebounds and two assists in the loss at Denver. E'Twaun Moore had 16 points off the bench. DeMarcus Cousins added 14 points, six rebounds and four assists. New Orleans trailed 64-56 at halftime and proceeded to be outscored 42-24 in the third quarter.

Oklahoma City is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings. The over is 5-0 in the last five meetings in New Orleans.

Bet on Thunder vs. Pelicans

Neither of these teams has found consistency yet this season, but New Orleans often seems to rise to the occasion against tough opponents. Being on their home floor and with Davis available after suffering a bruised orbital bone last game, look for the Pelicans to gain a big win over a Thunder team searching for their late-game identity.
