Spread: -3.5 bet on Intertops
The Spurs’ team recovered after beating the Miami Heat at home 107-102 last Sunday. Spurs tandem DeMar DeRozan had 20 points, and LaMarcus Aldridge had 21 points to break the Heat’s momentum. Patty Mills and Marcu Belinelli combined for 30 points off the bench. Former Toronto Raptors DeRozan is averaging 27.2 points with 59 percent per shooting from the field, while Aldridge is averaging 19.0 points with 50.7 percent shooting.
The Pelicans will face the Spurs with the return of Zion Williamson as the top overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft, a milestone for the Pelicans as Brandon Ingram leads the Pelicans averaging 25.6 points per game.
My prediction for this match is the Spurs go home with win, Spurs have two healthy superstars and two off the bench players who can score on the court for their team, compared to Pelicans who suffered some player injuries like Okafor, Jrue Holiday, and JJ Redick these players are a significant factor in helping the Pelicans but how can they do it when they’re not on the court. It’s an easy win for the Spurs team.
