Colin Sexton is averaging 19.3 points and 2.4 assists while Kevin Love is averaging 17.4 points and 10 rebounds.

The Pelicans are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 road games, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Cavaliers are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 12-3 in Pelicans last 15 overall. The over is 10-3 in Cavaliers last 13 overall. The Pelicans are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Cleveland. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The New Orleans Pelicans have been one of the more profitable teams over these last couple of weeks and giving Zion more minutes is going to make them that much more dangerous. The Cleveland Cavaliers aren't winning and aren't covering, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 10 points while allowing 52.2 percent shooting from the field. The Cleveland Cavaliers are 8-14-1 ATS at home. I'll take the Pels and the reasonable chalk.
