New Orleans vs Charlotte by EliteTips
The New Orleans Pelicans will host the Charlotte Hornets in this NBA match to be played in New Orleans, both teams we can consider them to be very fast up tempo teams and that is why the line is set up at 230 for the game, I will go with the over of the first quarter as both teams usually come out hot on their games.
I like this over as well because the defense for the Pelicans has not been that good at all, 116 points allowed in 3 of their last 4 games while the Hornets have the last 3 games with at least 236 points or more so I see a high scoring pattern here and maybe 59 sounds like a lot for the first quarter but the pace will be high and the defense is not good for either team.
Both teams need a win because the Hornets are just a couple of games behind the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference while the Pelicans are holding tight to that 5th spot but have the Timberwolves, Clippers, Jazz, Nuggets and Spurs right there very close we can also expect a high level of intensity from both teams, and they can score very quick so the first quarter should go over 59.
