The Mavericks are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 7-19-2 ATS in their last 28 Friday games and 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss. The Pelicans are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 Friday games, 2-9 ATS in their last 11 home games and 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in New Orleans and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 6-2 in Pelicans last 8 overall. The under is 5-1 in Mavericks last 6 road games.

The New Orleans Pelicans earned some respect by taking the defending champs down to the wire and probably should have won that game. Even without Zion, the Pelicans are deep, young and hungry, so don't expect this squad to go down quietly. With that said, the Dallas Mavericks are the better team right now and already have their duo of Luka and Porzingis cooking, as they combined for 57 points in their season opener. The Pelicans are a fun team to watch and a club on the rise, while the Mavericks are a dark horse playoff team and ready to win games now. We're getting a free bucket with the better team. I have to side with the Mavs in this contest.
