Washington Wizards vs New Orleans Pelicans prediction

The Washington Wizards continue to pile up the losses and look like a team that doesn't care most nights, and while they've had covers here and there, they're not a team I want to get behind. The New Orleans Pelicans are playing some of their best ball of the season, and they're 30-23-1 ATS on the season. The Pels are currently a top-5 covering team in the league. The Pelicans scored 142 points against the Wizards back in December. I'll lay the chalk with the Pels.
