Pelicans-Mavericks Free Sunday Play

Pelicans minus 3 1/2 at Mavericks

The Houston Rockets are drawing a lot of attention with their 15-game win streak. Below the radar, though, are the Pelicans. They’ve won seven in a row. Anthony Davis was the league’s top player in February putting up monster numbers of 35 points per game, 13 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 2.2 blocks.

New Orleans is a borderline playoff team that is at its best against lesser opponents. That’s the case here with the tanking, toxic Mavericks. Dallas has lost 16 of its last 20 games, including a 108-100 road loss to the Bulls this past Friday. This marks the Mavericks’ fourth game in seven days.

Dallas is 12-20 at home with a losing ATS mark at American Airlines Center. The Pelicans have covered seven of the past nine times on the road versus opponents who have a losing home record.

The Mavericks are the weakest rebounding team in the team. That’s bad news against the Pelicans who have Emeka Okafor at center to help Davis on the boards. Dallas doesn’t have a defensive stopper to slow down Davis.

The Pelicans average the third-most points in the league at 112.1. Dallas ranks 27th in scoring averaging 10 fewer points per game than New Orleans.
