The New Orleans Pelicans took a 103-91 beating by Memphis in their season opener while the Golden State Warriors opened their title defending season with a 122-121 loss to the Rockets. I expect the Warriors to do much better here when they begin their first road trip of 2017-18.
Note that the Warriors are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 road games and 14-5-1 ATS in their last 20 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game.
The Pels rely on big men Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, but it’s very thin behind them. The Warriors have both superstars and depth and should grind down the Pels, particularly when coming off a loss.
My free pick is on Golden State Warriors.
