The New Orleans Pelicans will look to win their third in a row tonight on the road against the rival Memphis Grizzlies.

The Pels beat the Grizzlies in their first meeting this season without Zion Williamson but he’ll be back in there tonight as New Orleans tries to put some distance between themselves and Memphis in the standings.

Currently the Pels are 3rd in the Western Conference and the Grizz are 7th, but there is just a game separating them, which shows how balanced the West is.

Memphis is very good at home, so this will be a tough road test for New Orleans, who will be shorthanded once again.

Can Zion remain undefeated against Memphis? Here is all of the information you need.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Memphis Grizzlies: Odds and Spread, Over/Under

According to Fanduel, the Pels are 2.5 point underdogs on the road against Memphis. The home team is usually given a few points, so the books see this one as a toss up.

The money lines are +122 for New Orleans and -144 for Memphis, so if you like the Pels, forget the points and just take them to win to get the better odds.

The over/under is 226.5 combined points and I like the under. These two teams combine for over 231 points on average but this could be a playoff-like atmosphere between two teams that know each other very well. There could also be some amount of turkey hangover after Thanksgiving.

New Orleans has only allowed 103 points on average over their last three, so the defense is dialed in right now.

Pelicans injury report

CJ McCollum is out for New Orleans and Trey Murphy III is still listed as questionable, so the Pels will be down two shooters. This will again mean increased minutes for Jose Alvarado, who did a good job of running the offense in the last game against the Spurs.

Desmond Bane and Ziaire Williams will be out for Memphis.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Memphis Grizzlies: Prediction

Zion has not lost to the Grizzlies in his career and has averaged nearly 27 points per game in their four meetings. I think that streak continues tonight, as the Pels are rolling and the Grizzlies are in a mini-slump having lost two in a row.

Look for Williamson to continue dominating and for the Pels to win their third in a row.

New Orleans 115, Memphis 111
