Vik (10-6): This is a tough spot for the Pelicans here after playing the Warriors yesterday, but they matchup well against the Trail Blazers. Coach Alvin Gentry also expects Anthony Davis to play tonight, which is huge. As long as that happens, there will be some fireworks as both of these teams can get buckets. Numbers wise, the average combined score in the Pelicans’ seven games this season is 243. This should be a fun game to watch and wager on. The Pick: Pelicans/ Trail Blazers over 230
Jason (14-19-1): If I had any discipline, i might have a winning record, but the NFL and NBA have been profitable for me, and I’m confident I’ll be able to turn this around. I’ll take the Cavs +4.5 at home to start a winning streak against a Nuggets team playing its third game in four nights, including an overtime thriller in Chicago Wednesday. The Pelicans are playing their 5th game in seven nights, so I’ll take the Blazers, who return home after a 3-1 road trip, favored by four. The picks: Cavs +4.5, Blazers -4.
Ryan (2-4): The Pick: Kings-Hawks under 232
