THE PREDICTION

New Orleans Pelicans suffered four straight losses to end last season and they open this new campaign with an extremely tough task as they host Philadelphia 76ers. The road team topped the Eastern Conference last year with a 49-23 record and while they fell in their second play-off contest, they enjoyed a much better season than the Pelicans. Finishing 31-41, the home team narrowly missed out on the play-offs last time around and while they will hope to make it into the post-season this year, they look set to begin with a loss against a team that they have lost to in five of their past six meetings.
