3 Unit Play Take #712 New Orleans -2.5
over Washington (8:05pm est):
The New Orleans Pelicans are finally starting to get healthy and they will be a much better team going forward. They have had to deal not only with a ton of early season injuries to some of their best players but also with having had to play the hardest schedule in the league so far as well. The Pelicans are coming off a bad loss last time out which should help them tonight as I expect a full out effort here in this one after an ugly showing.
The Washington Wizards haven’t lived up to their preseason expectations this year as they come in having dropped 7 of their last 10 games overall. They’re dealing with some health issues right now as a few of their big guys down low could be out of this game along with nagging injuries for others as well. The Wizards are also just 1-4 against the spread their last 5 games against team from the Western Conference.
Take New Orleans in this game.
