According to oddsmakers from oddsmakers at BetDSI, New Orleans is the slim favorite at home in this game, as the Pelicans are getting odds of -1 point against the Rockets. The over/under total for the game has been set at 211 points.

New Orleans is 9-20 on the season, 11-18 against the spread and 17-12 with the under. Houston is 16-15 on the season, 13-18 against the spread and 18-13 with the under. The Rockets have won and covered the spread in three straight in this series. New Orleans has hit the over in three of its last four home games.

Houston put up 108 points against New Orleans in their last game and scored 121 against New Orleans on April 12. Houston seems to bring out the best in other teams’ offenses, though they did beat San Antonio the previous night. The Pelicans played the Heat on Friday and now face a much different team with a quicker tempo. Before the Heat game, New Orleans put up 115 points against Portland and 130 against Denver. Expect a high-scoring game as both defenses will be fatigued.
