Right when it looked like the New Orleans Pelicans figured things out and were going to make a run, they drop five of their last six and struggle to get stops defensively. The San Antonio Spurs aren't lighting the world on fire either, but at least they're at home here, and they do win in the favorite role by an average of 7.5 points. Battle between two struggling teams, give me the Spurs at home and the small chalk.
