Sport: NBA | Star Rating: 10.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1100) - Final Total 218
Pick
Over 230.5 (-110) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on NO/Sac OVER the total. True, the Pelicans will be without their top three scorers. True, the Kings will be without Fox and Holmes. That doesn't mean that we won't see plenty of points though. Indeed, with both these teams eliminated from the playoffs, there should be very little defensive intensity. I played on the 'over' when these teams met on 8/6 and they combined for 265 points, the only one of the Pelicans' games which finished above the number thus far. Here's an excerpt of what I said at the time: "We should see plenty of points in this one. The last three meetings had 232, 262 and 239 points. The Pelicans allow 116.8 ppg and the Kings have seen the OVER go 16-8-1 the last 25 times that they faced a team which allowed 106 or more points per game. Yes, the Kings last game was a little lower-scoring. However, in their first two games here, they allowed 129 and 132 points, respectively ... " Expect more offensive fireworks in this one.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
