Clippers vs Pelicans Against the Spread Pick

The Clippers vs Pelicans will be played at 10:00 PM ET in the Staples Center

The Pick: Clippers -6.5

Why bet the Clippers:

✅ The Pelicans have lost three straight games and they don’t look to be playing with the best chemistry right now. The Clippers defense will continue to force the issue, giving us good reason to believe the Clippers will hold a distinct advantage in the fastbreak. 

✅ The Clippers rank 1st in 3P% at 42.4% while the Pelicans rank dead last at 32.2%. If the Pelicans fall behind, they’ll have a tough time catching up as the Clippers are elite from beyond the arc. Especially with the Clippers fully healthy. 

✅ Expect Kawhi Leonard to cover Brandon Ingram. He’s able to slow down the opposing team’s best weapon by himself and an already reeling Pelicans offense will be in for a stressful night. Paul George is also one of the best defenders in the league and he will make an impact as well.

Betting the over/under refers to wagering whether or not the pair of teams will combine for more or less than a certain amount of points. Pace is how fast an NBA team plays, and both of these teams rank in the bottom-five. The Clippers sit at 27th while the Pelicans are tied for 25th. Neither of these teams want to speed it up and it might be a great idea to take the under. With that said, sportsbooks know this will be a slow one and we must keep an eye on the number.

Clippers vs Pelicans Moneyline Predictions

Betting the moneyline refers to whether the Clippers or Pelicans will win this game outright. While the Pelicans might hold an all-time advantage, the Clippers haven’t been this good in nearly 30 years. That means they will always be the favorite and it will cost you to bet on them to win. On the other side, a bet on the Pelicans would come in at plus-money. For example, if the Clippers are -200 favorites you would have to lay $200 on the Clippers to return $100. A $100 bet on the Pelicans to win would return $200. Betting the Clippers vs Pelicans moneyline predictions might not be the best bet, but we will certainly let you know when it is above.
