The New Orleans Pelicans face the Utah Jazz tonight, and there's a same game parlay featuring CJ McCollum and New Orleans with value.
This is the second matchup between these teams in three days as the Jazz snapped the Pelicans' seven-game winning streak in a 121-100 blowout on Tuesday. New Orleans really struggled from beyond the arc, connecting on only four of 27 shots from deep while Zion Williamson was dealing with foul trouble.
With both offenses ranking in the top five in points per game, we might be in for a much better showing as the Pels hope to rebound and get right back to their winning ways.

Pelicans vs. Jazz Same Game Parlay Odds & Pick
The Parlay: (+239)
- CJ McCollum to Score 20+ Points (+100)
- New Orleans Pelicans Moneyline (-112)
CJ McCollum to Score 20+ Points (+100)
On Tuesday night, we saw the Pelicans struggle from the floor as their offense never got going. CJ McCollum contributed 14 points in 30 minutes but didn't have as much of an impact as expected.
However, McCollum exceeded 20 points in each of his last two matchups with the Jazz. In those games he scored an efficient 24 points (10-of-18 from the floor in 29 minutes) and 28 points (12-15 in 41 minutes with 12 assists on October 23rd).
In tonight's contest, his point total is set low at just 18.5, but for a better payout, take McCollum to score 20 or more for a +100 return in what projects to be a high-scoring game.
New Orleans Pelicans Moneyline (-112)
The Utah Jazz took a commanding lead early in Tuesday night's contest and led by as many as 27 points. Zion Williamson got into foul trouble early as he played only 11 minutes in the first half. Despite foul trouble, he scored 26 points in just 26 minutes as he was dominant offensively when he was on the court.
He was a big reason why the Jazz surrendered 60 points in the paint. Allowing points in the paint has been an area of weakness all season long for the Jazz, who enter tonight's matchup ranking dead last in points in the paint allowed per game at 56.3.
Although their game plan was successful, they still gave up too many points close to the bucket and were fortunate the Pelicans had an unusually cold shooting night from beyond the arc.
With familiarity between these two teams and the Pelicans hopefully deriving a better game plan while Williamson stays out of foul trouble, the Pels on the moneyline look too good to pass up.
