The Clippers have won eight of their last nine against the Pelicans, including three in a row when playing in New Orleans. Los Angeles has compiled a 19-16 SU record when playing away from the Staples Center this season, including an 11-9 mark versus Western Conference opponents. Guard Darren Collison is a key player to watch down the stretch, as he’s averaged 15.6 points on 51 percent shooting in the month of March.
New Orleans has won and covered the number in three consecutive games, including a 109-104 overtime victory over the Brooklyn Nets as one-point home favorites Monday, while going OVER the betting total for a sixth consecutive affair. The Pelicans are being led by forward Anthony Davis, who is averaging 21.8 points and 10.5 rebounds per game, which can’t be ignored when looking over the pro basketball odds page. He finished with 24 points and 14 rebounds versus the Nets. New Orleans is 17-17-1 ATS when playing in front of its home fans during the 2013-14 campaign.
The Pelicans are 4-9 SU in this series under head coach Monty Williams, which is important to consider when making your pro basketball picks. New Orleans currently holds a plus-52 margin on the offensive glass, which has led directly to ranking sixth in the league in averaging 14.6 second-chance points per game. Davis has been a force on both ends of the floor, as he ranks second in the NBA in blocking 174 shots.
Sports bettors will likely back the Pelicans due to their 10-2 ATS mark in their last 12 home games in this series.
