- Where: Smoothie King Center, New Orleans, Louisiana
- When: Friday, February 10, 2023, 10:00 PM ET
Betting on the Cleveland Cavaliers
- Regular Season Record: 34-22
The Cleveland Cavaliers will travel to New Orleans after playing at home against the Detroit Pistons on February 8. It was a positive moment for this squad, which has shown an encouraging performance that it will try to transfer to other teams’ fields. It is not something that has gone wrong for them lately, as they have been able to win the last two away games.
Although they have a negative record of 12-16 away from the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, the recent good streak coupled with the great positive performance in the defensive department invite them to be optimistic in this new matchup. This is so because they are the franchise with the best average in this area, averaging 106.5 per night.
Betting on the New Orleans Pelicans
- Regular Season Record: 29-27
The New Orleans Pelicans have found some oxygen in their most recent games, which has allowed them to get out of the dreadful situation they were in. All of this is thanks to the series of matches held at home, adding 3 consecutive victories that give confidence to the team.
The last victory was against the Atlanta Hawks by 116-107 in a game in which Brandon Ingram scored 30 points and was the team’s offensive leader. It is important that other players take the lead in this department after the absence of Zion Williamson, who has missed several weeks due to injury.
Although they are in the top 10 teams with the best scoring average (115.5), they must improve their defense if they want to continue to get good results, a department in which they average 113.5 units per game.
The home team wants to improve its record in this situation, which is really positive because they have won 20 of the 29 matches they have played. They will not have an easy opponent ahead of them, as we are talking about one of the most consistent squads in the Eastern Conference.
However, they have not fared badly when facing Cleveland at the Smoothie King Center either, winning the last 11 meetings at that venue.
Therefore, with an extra day of rest ahead of this match, and the good tone they have maintained in the home series, it is expected that New Orleans can get a good result on Friday night.
Prediction: New Orleans Pelicans Spread.
