The Rockets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 11-26 ATS in their last 37 games overall. The Pelicans are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games as a favorite and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Rockets last 4 Sunday games. The under is 13-6-1 in Pelicans last 20 overall. The Rockets are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New Orleans and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Houston Rockets have been more competitive as of late, but we can't ignore the fact they lose by an average of 11.2 points, and they lose as an underdog by an average of 10.7 points. The New Orleans Pelicans need to take advantage of games like this if they're going to lock up a play-in spot, and they do win in the favorite role by an average of 5.6 points. This line is reasonable, and I expect the Pelicans to get the job done. The Pels can't afford to come up short here.
