Our sim work forecasts a combined total score in the range of 210-213 when the Pelicans host the Thunder this afternoon, offering strong support for the OVER. While this might be a hard pick to align with, we note that despite OKC's and New Orleans' combined O/U of 26-32, the OVER is 3-1 in the last four meetings between these teams at Smoothie King Center. Further, the Pelicans 12-9 O/U against the West suggests a disposition toward the OVER in intra-conference play. Also, the Thunder's OVER is 10-7 playing after a night off...that's the best we can do.
