Analysis
Both teams come into this matchup off of impressive wins with Brandon Ingram sinking a 3 at buzzer for the Pelicans and the Clippers coming back from being down 25 points in the 2nd half without their best 2 players. Clippers have covered 2 straight games while the Pelicans have covered 3 straight and going 2-1 SU in those games. I think this matchup will come down to controlling the glass and the Pelicans hold the edge as the Clippers have the worst defensive rebounding percentage and 2nd worst offensive rebounding percentage so Jonas Valanciunas who averages 12.1 RPG should have a big night for the Pelicans. The Pelicans also have a historical trend working in their favor as the Clippers have not performed against New Orleans going 6-21 ATS in the last 27 meetings in New Orleans and 16-37 ATS in their last 53 meetings overall. The Clippers are also up against a scheduling disadvantage with this being their 4th game in 6 nights and their offense already struggles to score without Paul George in the lineup and now they’ll have to deal with tired legs at some point in this matchup also. My numbers have this line at 5 so there’s value in laying the points with the Pelicans.
