New Orleans Pelicans DFS SPIN
Brandon Ingram led the Pelicans in scoring in Friday night’s 104-101 loss versus the Rockets. Ingram recorded 31 points on 11/24 from the field and grabbed six rebounds. The Pelicans will look to snap a four-game skid as they return home to face the Mavericks on Sunday night.

Mavericks vs. Pelicans Prediction:
The Mavericks picked up a big home win versus the Clippers on Friday night, while Pelicans dropped their fourth straight game to Houston on Friday.
New Orleans has not looked the same team without their all-star CJ McCollum who will miss his fourth straight game on Sunday night with a collapsed lung. On the other end Dallas looked exceptional in their 18-point victory against the Clippers on Friday night. Kyrie and Luka combined for 71 points, and as a team they shot 45% from behind the arc. This is exactly what Dallas has been looking for, Irving and Doncic to carry the load offensively and once the double teams start to come find other guys to make open shots. Without CJ and some other role players available for the Pelicans, take Dallas to continue their early season success on Sunday night.
NBA BETTING PREDICTION: Dallas -2.5
