Who Public Bettors Like: New Orleans. As of this writing, over 70% of betting tickets are on the Pelicans to cover the point spread.

Injury Report: Denver will be without Nikola Jokic, who is out with an ankle injury. Paul Millsap will also miss another game due to a wrist injury. On the other side, Anthony Davis (hip) is getting close to returning but remains doubtful to play tonight for the Pelicans.

The road team is also 8-3 against the number in the last 11 meetings between these two teams while the underdog has cashed in seven of the last nine meetings.

On the other side, the Pelicans have failed to cover in four of their last five games overall, are 1-4 against the number in their last five Western Conference games and are just 1-4 in their last five games played on Wednesday. In their last seven days playing on just one day of rest, New Orleans has failed to cover five times as well.
