Winners of seven of their last eight, the New Orleans Pelicans are NBA betting favourites over the Miami Heat on Friday night. Miami played some good basketball themselves before the break, however, and will be eyeing a top-six spot in the Eastern Conference down the stretch.

NEW ORLEANS PELICANS VS MIAMI HEAT SAME-GAME PARLAY:

Miami Heat under 112.5 points

The Pelicans have held their opponents under this line in five of their last seven games. Miami has scored 112 or fewer points in 14 of their last 18. Their offence has had a bit of an uptick of late, but the low pace of both teams suggests a low-scoring game here.

New Orleans appears to have found the happy medium between offence and defence. They are a top seven defence this month and should be able to slow down a Heat offence which will be less effective without Terry Rozier.

 

Zion Williamson over 5.5 assists

Zion Williamson has had 17 assists over his last two games. New Orleans has leaned into Zion as a playmaker, putting the ball in his hands more frequently and forcing the defence to collapse on his drives.

Miami, of course, has a great option for guarding Williamson in Bam Adebayo, but it will be interesting to see how they match up here. Averaging more potential assists than De’Aaron Fox and Fred VanVleet this month, we love the value on this over.
