The Pelicans are currently ranked 5th in the Southwest Division with a record of 26-40 and a point difference of -3.2, thanks to 102.9 points scored per game and 106.1 conceded. The Heat have an overall record of 32-35 and a a point difference of -0.6, thanks to 102.3 points scored per game and 101.7 conceded. They currently are 3rd in the Southeast Division.
We bet on Miami here because we think that New Orleans will be too excited for the earlier win this year vs Miami and the huge win by 20+ points last night. Basically the bet is on the young Pelicans not being able to handle that success against a more experienced and solid Miami team.
