Advice and prediction
Las Vegas clearly has no idea what to do with the Pelicans and they can get in line. The best explanation is that New Orleans is playing to the level of its opponent on a nightly basis. This spells bad when they’re playing poor teams but this should mean good things on Thursday.
Still, the Pelicans should have no trust when it comes to the line. Instead, take over 227.5.
Prediction: Pelicans 120, Heat 115
