New Orleans Pelicans vs LA Clippers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Just a game after Brandon Ingram dropped 41-points in a 138-100 blowout victory over the Toronto Raptors, the New Orleans Pelicans head into LA to face the red-hot Clippers. With the regular season series being tied at 1-1 and the Pels already winning a game in LA, they’ll be optimistic in their hopes of extending this current 3-game win streak they’re on. If we look at this match-up closely, we can see that the Pelicans have had the edge for quite some time now having won 8 of their last 10 vs the Clippers, while also covering the spread in 11 of the last 13 meetings. Zion Williamson is healthy and playing consistently, he fits in really well with Ingram and McCollum on offense. Over their last 10 games, the Pelicans actually rank 9th in offensive rating and if they can maintain this level of play I can definitely see them winning their division ahead of the Dallas Mavericks.

LA is enjoying it’s best stretch of basketball over a span of 31 games in franchise history. That’s right, since December 1st the Clippers have gone 26-5 SU and lead the NBA in both field goal and three-point percentage. Kawhi Leonard is a man on a mission – he leads the team with 24.4 points per game on insane efficiency. But it’s not all just him, James Harden has adapted really well to his new surroundings and Russell Westbrook is making a huge contribution off the bench. This will be the first game following a long road trip for the Clippers, they come back home where they are currently on an 8-game win streak. They’re also 14-3 SU in their last 17 games vs Western Conference opponents, it’s really hard to find a flaw when analyzing this team at the moment.

New Orleans Pelicans Point Spread

New Orleans Pelicans +6.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

This will be LA’s first home game since January 23rd when the played the Lakers. Teams are known to come out a bit flat in their first game when returning from such a long trip, I suspect this will be the case with the Clippers too. I do see them winning this game, but I’m going to back the Pelicans to keep things close and cover the spread.

Pelicans vs Clippers Total Points Prediction: Under 233.5

Under 233.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Defense has been the deciding factor in the 2 meetings so far this season with the two teams coring 222 and 206 points. The oddsmakers have set a very ambitious projected total of 233.5 points here, that number has been surpassed only twice in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. During this stretch we’re seeing an average of just 213.7 points per game scored and the under cashing a total of 7 times. Despite their high scoring game at Atlanta to finish the road trip, the Clippers have actually gone under the total in 5 of their last 7 games. This is only the 22nd fastest team in the NBA over the last 15 games, they average just 98.03 possessions per game. The Pelicans are only 4 spots ahead of them averaging 98.6 possessions, with both teams ranking in the bottom half of the NBA I’m thinking the under might be a good bet here. New Orleans is 4-1 on the under in their last 5 games vs Western Conference opponents and 4-2 in their last 6 overall. Let’s go for another low scoring contest here.
