Pelicans vs Kings prediction

The Pelicans and Kings are both fighting for playoff positioning and to stay out of the play-in tournament, so this is a big game for both sides. The Kings should have the edge at home. However, it's fair to say the Pelicans are the more talented team and the value is with them and the free bucket. The Pelicans have won the last 4 games against the Kings, and that includes a 33 point win back in January. The Kings have had issues offensively since the Monk injury, and now Murray is questionable with a calf issue. The Pels are coming off back to back road wins as they make this push for a top-6 seed in the west. Give me the road dog.
