Cleveland Cavaliers vs New Orleans Pelicans prediction

The Cleveland Cavaliers remain banged up as Wade, Mitchell, Mobley and Strus will be out for this game. It makes it hard to trust the Cavs given so much missing production. The New Orleans Pelicans have these games where they just explode on opponents and the Cavs experienced that in December where the Pels won 123-104. This could be similar given the Cavs injuries. The Pelicans are 35-27-2 ATS on the year. I'll lay the points with the Pelicans at home.
