The Pelicans will be looking to put an end to a two-game skid following a 135-125 loss against the Nets in Brooklyn their last time on the court.Kyle Lowry was able to drop 8 of 15 from the field to lead the way with 24 points. He was also able to pass the ball around for a team-high six assists while Pascal Siakam was able to grab 13 rebounds. Toronto had six players in double digits scoring in the game.

The Pelicans average 8.9 steals per game to go along with 5.0 blocks. They will be looking to avoid a third consecutive loss.
Toronto will take the court on Friday as two and a half point favorites with the total sitting at 234. I’m liking the Pelicans to cover the spread playing at home. No, they haven’t been as strong on the defensive end of the court as Toronto has but New Orleans is averaging five more points a night. They are solid as far as moving the ball around I think that’s what helps them in this one. I not only like the Pelicans to cover the spread, I think they get the win at home.
The trends do not back this pick.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? (CFL, CFB and NFL)
C.O.C. = (Chances of Covering) – The ‘C.O.C.’ percentage is based on a teams win/lost record from a ‘Point Spread’ perspective and not their ‘straight up’ (SU) record, using the teams short and long-term win/lost record. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that team in their next game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on betting that team. C.O.G.O. = (Chances Game Going OVER) – The ‘C.O.G.O.’ percentage is based on both teams OVER/UNDER record, using both teams short and long-term OVER/UNDER records. After we process it through our ‘math predictor’, we then provide a ‘CHANCES OF COVERING’ percentage for that game, which let’s you know if there’s any value on the OVER in that game.
*Note: If there’s a 60% chance of the game going OVER, that means, there’s a 40% chance of the game going UNDER. MSV = (Market Spread Value) – The MSV is our researched and calculated line compared to the bookmaker’s line. When calculating the MSV, we look for the margin of error between the bookmaker’s line, the final result of a game and then produce the value of what the line should be in the next game for both teams.VI = (Value Index) – The Value Index is the current psychology of the betting public, based on a teams 3-game cycle.
BULLISH = Team is either (3-0) in their last 3 games.
NEUTRAL = Team is either (1-2 or 2-3) in their last 3 games.
BEARISH = Team is either (0-3) in their last 3 games.
L.O.A. = (Law of Average) – The “Law of Average” edge is based on the 50/50 theory. Play on a team that lost against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game, vs. a team that won against the spread (ATS) or straight up (SU) in their last game.
