Sacramento Kings at New Orleans Pelicans, 8 pm Eastern

The Pick: New Orleans -230, bet $46 to win $20; New Orleans -6 (-110), bet $16.48 to win $15

Sacramento will be coming into tonight’s game against New Orleans in the middle of a five-game road trip and with less rest than the Pelicans. When they have a day’s rest advantage, New Orleans is 10-6-1 against the spread, beating the average line by 3.6 points. They’re 8-4 ATS in their last 12, and though they’ve lost the last two games against the Kings, those games were played without C.J. McCollum, who’s given the Pelicans a shot in the arm and a flash of hope about the future. McCollum’s averaged 28 points per game with his new team, providing Brandon Ingram with scoring help while Zion Williamson remains missing. Williamson still being out is almost a win-win; if he comes back, New Orleans could be a contender, if he stays out (or forces his way out), the Pelicans can see right now that they will survive. I like them to continue their journey of discovery tonight at home.
