Lopsided Money Holding Back a Historically High NBA Total
This evening, the Brow and the Pelicans head to La-La Land to take on the Clippers. The new-look Clippers have been scoring buckets on top of buckets as of late, averaging over 120 points per game over their past eight games. That’s nothing compared to New Orleans, though, who has averaged nearly 127 points over their past eight.
New Orleans also boasts the “best” over record in the league at 38-23-1, while the Clippers are fourth “best” at 33-28-1.
With both teams scoring so many points, this total opened between 237 and 238 points around the market, rivaling this year’s season high of 237.5, when the Warriors and Rockets faced off in January. Using the tools available at The Action Network, I looked at how professionals are treating this number and where the value lies, based on historically high totals.
