Result: Win
This is a Free #NBA play on the New Orleans #Pelicans.

The Pelicans and the Mavs will play in Dallas Wednesday, and this will be the second game of a back to back for both teams. You'd have to think the youthful Pelicans may be better equipped to handle these type of demanding spots on the schedule that the Mavs, who are one of the oldest teams in the league.

The Pelicans are coming off consecutive wins, albeit against inferior opponents (Los Angeles and New York). New Orleans gets a seven point cushion here on the road in Dallas, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them give the Mavs a run for their money tonight.

Dallas is just 2-2 in it's last four at home, and the Mavs needed overtime to beat the Knicks in one of those two wins. The Pelicans are 3-3 overall in their last six, but two of those losses came against the Warriors and Clippers, and the other was a game decided by only three points in Washington in an 83-80 loss to the Wizards.

The Pelicans have been a great bet in back to back situations, covering the spread in six straight when playing on zero days rest. The road teams has also covered in four of the last five in this series.

Take NO.
