The Denver Nuggets are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, and they're probably the better team here overall. However, the New Orleans Pelicans re a team that's flipped a switch lately, winning four straight games, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 20 points while shooting 51.1 percent from the field. The Pels are easily playing their best ball of the season and have to be thinking about moving up in those play-in standings. I'll take a stab with the hot underdog.
