The Pelicans are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games. The Thunder are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Pelicans last 7 road games. The under is 5-2 in Thunder last 7 overall. The Pelicans are 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings.

The Oklahoma City Thunder should want to get revenge after the way they lost to the Pelicans a couple of weeks ago, and they're the healthiest team in the league right now. However, OKC can't score the basketball and playing at home hasn't helped, where it loses by an average of 4.4 points. The New Orleans Pelicans are enjoying a nice four-game winning streak, and the offense is shooting 46.6 percent from the field in their last five games. I have to give the edge to the Pelicans here.
