I want to take advantage of what I think is a sharp angle here. This is a two team parley.
Pelicans ML + 76ers ML. Pays +110
The big reason for me really liking this play is the fact that the Grizzlies and Spurs will be on a back to back. Now we have seen what teams looked like in the 2nd game for them and a bunch of teams look bad. We really have no idea what the B2B will look like for teams, but my gut says it's a bad thing. The market has reacted in that way for the most part.
Pelicans need to win a game or they will find themselves out of the playoff chase real quick. This is a must win for them and they are the better team I think in this match-up. The fact that they got 2 full games under them now and the fact that the Grizzlies are on a B2B and off a tough loss last night, gives me belief the Pelicans will be the fresher more motivation team.
Philly dominated the Pacers in rebounds last game. Philly was +21, but they also turned the ball over 21 times and netted -11 in that area...If Philly cleans up the turnovers, I think they win this game going away. Embiid is going to be tough to deal with and he should dominate Jakob Poeltl. I think the Philly length will eventually get to the Spurs with Simmons and Harris. I'm concerned about the Spurs playing a tough game last night in which they won. If there is one game the Spurs can ht the cruise control button or have a lapse in effort, I would think it's this game tonight.
3*** Prop. Rudy Gobert UNDER 11.5 Rebounds. I think if the Lakers want to win this game, they do it by taking Gobert and Mitchell out of the game..Gobert would seem like the easier of the two. I't snot going to be easy taking on LeBron, AD and JaVale McGee. I also think we have the potential of a Lakers blowout which would leave Gobert on the bench...Utah could just fall to the 6 seed and that might suit them better if they face off against a Nuggets team if they in fact do grab the #3 seed. So I feel we have some things going in our favor tonight. I expect a lower scoring, slower tempo game. That also means less shots.
Best Of Luck !!
