New Orleans Pelicans vs LA Lakers Prediction And Betting Odds

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

After taking down the in-form Clippers two nights ago, the Pelicans are aiming to win their 5th game on the bounce as they take on the Lakers at crypto.com Arena. New Orleans didn’t have the best of times in their last road game against the Lakers, as they were blown out 133-89 back in the beginning of December, they just couldn’t make a basket in that game shooting just 35% from the field and 22% from downtown. They did bounce back nicely with a 129-109 win on New Year’s day at home, tying the regular season series at 1 win each. This team has really caught fire in the last couple of weeks, 3 of their 4 wins during this win streak have been by double digits, so the Lakers could be in some trouble here, especially since they are playing their 2nd game in two nights.

In this scenario the Lakers have just 2 wins in 8 games, and are currently on a 3-game losing streak. Losing to the Nuggets for the 7th time in a row is concerning, but what is even more concerning ahead of tonight’s game is the fact that we don’t know the status of either LeBron James or Anthony Davis. These two have missed 2nd nights of back-to-backs often this season, without either of them the Lakers are a lot weaker team. Especially Davis who loves playing against his former team, he’s averaging 26.6 points and 13.2 rebounds per game in the last 5 meetings. To the surprise of many, the Lakers stayed quiet on the trade deadline yesterday, so it would appear that the management in charge has a lot of faith in the current selection of players. It’ll be interesting to see if they can cover the spread here, in their last 6 games they’ve done so 4 times.

New Orleans Pelicans Point Spread Prediction

New Orleans Pelicans +1.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

It's really hard to go against the Pelicans right now. Their trio of Zion Williamson, C.J. McCollum and Brandon Ingram is flying high, this team is 11-4 SU in their last 15 road games. They’ve also won and covered in 4 of their last 5 overall, so I’ll be sticking with them as road underdogs in this one. Back the Pelicans.

Pelicans vs Lakers Total Points Prediction: Over 233

Over 233 Total Points is available at -110 odds

We witnessed a solid defensive effort by the Lakers in their game last night against the Nuggets, however playing on a 2nd night of a back-to-back could result in some tired legs on the defensive end. This is bad news when going up against such a young and athletic team like the Pelicans are, Zion Williamson will be a problem in transition and down low. New Orleans is scoring at a high pace lately, they’ve put up at least 110 in their last 4 games, culminating with 138 points scored against the Toronto Raptors. Even against the Clippers, who are a really solid defensive team, they managed to score 117 the other night. I’m having a hard time believing the Lakers can hold this team to a reasonable point total here. LA has gone over the total in 8 of 11 games, and in 4 of 5 vs Western Conference teams. Head-to-head meetings are producing an average of 228.2 points per game in the last 10 games played, 4 of the last 6 have all gone over the total. I’m not sure if we’ll see that much, if any, defense in tonight’s game so let’s back the over once again.
