Stephen Nover's NBA Thursday Bookie Basher - 8-2 NBA Run
(NBA) New Orleans vs. Dallas, 02/02/2023 8:30 PM, Score: 106 - 111
Point Spread: 4.50 | -106.00 New Orleans (Away)
Result: Loss
The Pelicans are in full stop-the-pain mode, losers of nine in a row. Except for Zion Williamson, the Pelicans are finally healthy now. Brandon Ingram should have the rust off having played in the past three games following a 29-game absence because of a toe injury.

New Orleans is stepping down in class after having played the Bucks this past Sunday and Nuggets two days ago.

The Mavericks aren't fully healthy either minus Maxi Kleber and Christian Wood, their second-leading scorer at 18.4 points per game.

Dallas is coming off a victory against the Pistons and has a bigger matchup on deck facing the Warriors on Saturday. The Mavericks are 5-20-1 ATS following a win. They also have been terrible when laying three or more points going 7-20-1 ATS in that role.
