The Dallas Mavericks just blew the doors off the Pelicans on Wednesday, and you shouldn't expect much different with them at home now. The Mavs aren't world beaters this season, and they don't play great at home, but the New Orleans Pelicans lose on the road by an average of 10.4 points while shooting just 42.3 percent from the field. It's tough to back the Pelicans on the road with any confidence. Give me the Mavs in a comfortable victory.
