Analysis
This is certainly a contrarian play tonight as Golden State is getting about 2/3 of the public tickets. I know Golden State dominated Game 1 without Steph Curry and now Curry is back from injury, however I expect a max effort here out of New Orleans after such a poor performance. There could also be a rust factor for Curry being out the last 5 weeks and Golden State has gotten used to playing a certain way without Steph (slower tempo). I'm not sure if Curry (at least for this game) is worth the 4-point line upgrade that we saw from Game 1's closing line of Golden State -7. I think the value is with the Pelicans who are 9-1 SU/ATS their last 10 games and 24-9 SU/23-9-1 ATS since February 10th.
