Pick
Over 217.5 (-107) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on NO/Utah OVER the total. While the Jazz are off some low-scoring games, I expect a date with the Pelicans to change that. New Orleans saw its last game finish with a score of 128-123. All 250+ points came in regulation, too. Note that the OVER is 2-0 after the Pelicans had scored 115 or more and 3-0 after they had allowed 115 or more. Thats seven straight games where the Pelicans have allowed greater than 110 points. Averaging 113.8 ppg its last five times out, I believe that Utah will also exceed that mark. Yet, I believe that the Pelicans will be competitve and to do so, they're going to need to also put up a big number. Six of the past nine meetings have finished above the total. Six of the last seven meetings have finished with more than 217 points. Three of the past four have finished with 248 or more. Expect another high-scoring affair. 

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.
