Interesting Stats

  • Toronto has won the last four meetings against New Orleans, and three of those four have had the total hit the over. 
  • New Orleans is 5-1 at home this season, but only 1-5 on the road.
  • Both teams rank high in offensive efficiency -- TOR: 2nd (113.8) / NO: 6th (110.3)

Best Prop Bets

  • Kyle Lowry: Over 17.5 Points Scored (-110) / 2.5 Made 3-Pointers (-128) - We're getting slightly-better odds on Lowry to exceed 17.5 points than we are on him exceeding 2.5 3-pointers, but there's a path to success for each prop bet. There have been eight starting point guards to play at least 28 minutes against the Pelicans this season, and all of them have made three or more 3-pointers. Additionally, in all but one of those instances, that player has shot 56 percent or better from the field -- the only misnomer, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, shot 43.8 percent that night but still scored 26 points. Lowry is averaging 33.5 minutes per game this season. 
  • Kawhi Leonard: Over 35.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-118) - Kawhi has exceeded the 35.5-mark in six of his nine games so far this season. The Pelicans lackluster defense and up-tempo style of play will likely get Kawhi where he needs to be in this prop bet, and he should be well-rested after playing a season-low 23 minutes in Saturday's blowout win against the New York Knicks.
