The Memphis Grizzlies are one of the most consistent teams in the league SU and ATS, and I don’t like betting against them often. However, the New Orleans Pelicans are as healthy as they’ve been in a while, they’re clicking offensively and this feels like a statement game at home. The Pelicans need a win like this to kind of get people to start taking them serious. I’ll lay the bucket.
