NBA Monday Free Pick – Easy Winner


3/2/15 – New Orleans @ Dallas

The New Orleans Pelicans have quietly pieced together a six game winning streak without Anthony Davis. Without their all-star forward, the Pelicans have climbed to within a half game of Oklahoma City for the last playoff spot. While these results are unlikely to continue, we do look for a strong effort from the Pelicans tonight as they visit Dallas.

Dallas will be without Chandler ( leading rebounder) and Parsons ( third leading scorer). They have suffered back to back defeats without these two and have averaged 13+ fewer points per game without Parsons.

The Mavs will likely rebound tonight for a better effort but 9 points is simply to juicy a number for us to pass up. While the Pelicans have really stunk in American Airlines Arena they are 11-2 ATS on zero days rest. Some other trends that support the dog here are Dallas is 11-16 ATS at home and New Orleans 16-13 ATS as a road dog.

We rate this game as a smaller play but there’s value here nonetheless. Take the generous 9 points and look to cash in on he his Monday night NBA free play.


PICK: New Orleans +9
