ROGERS' 10* GAME OF THE MONTH (OFF 4-1 SATURDAY!)
LA Lakers vs. New Orleans,
03/01/2020 20:00 EDT,
Score: 122 - 114
Point Spread: +2½/-105 New Orleans
The set-up: The Lakers likely got "caught looking ahead" to this game after they lost in Memphis just last night right? Not in my opinion. The Grizzlies had lost five straight going into that one and they also played with revenge after losing to the Lakers earlier in the year. The Pelicans are in the same boat as Memphis, playing with revenge and in need of victories. New Orleans is playing its best basketball of the season right now and I believe this young core of super stars is going to risk life and limb tonight to try and pull off this minor upset, while also avenging last week's loss in LA. The Lakers are great, but this is a difficult spot in the second game of the back to back.
The pick: Note as well that LA is interestingly just 5-6 ATS this year on all games played on a "Sunday," while New Orleans is 6-2 ATS in its last eight following a SU home win. I'm grabbing the points, but I'm expecting the outright.
10* GAME OF THE MONTH on the New Orleans Pelicans.
