New Orleans Pelicans – none
The Toronto Raptors host the New Orleans Pelicans in Tampa Bay. The Pelicans have a lot of hype surrounding them, due to young stars and being an up-and-coming franchise. For the Raptors, they are perpetually undervalued by the oddsmakers. Expect favourable lines for the Raptors to continue – at least for the early portion of the season. This is a slam dunk pick for the Raptors to win by 4 or more points.
The Pelicans did not look good when we saw them just a few months ago in the Orlando bubble. The Raptors defence will slow down the Pelicans inexperienced offence. Offensively, their is no reason to expect the Raptors to struggle. The line has been getting smaller as we get closer to tip off. I guess people like to be on Zion.
Point spread pick:
Raptors at -3.5
Confidence Level (Low, Medium, High):
