Preview

The Los Angeles Clippers continue at home and will host the New Orleans Pelicans at the Footprint Center on Friday night. These teams faced each other 10 times last season and the Clippers led 7-3 including beating them in the first round of the playoffs.  

 

Los Angeles Clippers

The Clippers get here with a 2-2 record after losing against the Thunder 108-94 in Oklahoma. The Clippers were without their two biggest stars. Kawhi Leonard sat out to rest his right knee and Paul George missed the game with an illness. Another starter, Marcus Morris, was out for personal reasons. Luke Kennard scored 15 points and Ivica Zubac had 10 points and 14 rebounds for the Clippers.

Paul George leads the team averaging 23.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2 steals over the past 3 games for Los Angeles. Ivica Zubac is leading the team in rebounds with 11.

In their last 10 games the Clippers are 6-4, averaging 115.1 points, 40.6 rebounds, 25.9 assists, 7.3 steals and 6.2 blocks per game while shooting 47.0% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 104.6 points per game.

New Orleans Pelicans

The Pelicans get here with a 3-1 record and have won their first 2 games on the road this season. In their last game, they beat the mavericks 113-111 at home without their stars Ingram and Zion Williamson. Murphy hit all eight of his shots for 22 points. Dyson Daniels scored his first career points on a jump hook in the second quarter and finished with 11 points in 22 minutes on 4-of-5 shooting.

Brandon Ingram who's out for this game is averaging 22 points while Jonas Valanciunas is grabbing 11.5 rebound per game and CJ McCollum has 7.8 assists per game for New Orleans.

In their last 10 games the Pelicans are 5-5, averaging 114.5 points, 46.4 rebounds, 25.9 assists, 6.4 steals and 3.9 blocks per game while shooting 47.7% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 112.7 points.

 

BETTING TRENDS

New Orleans are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games against Los Angeles.

New Orleans are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games against Los Angeles.

New Orleans are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of New Orleans' last 6 games when playing on the road against Los Angeles.

Los Angeles are 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Los Angeles's last 9 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Los Angeles's last 5 games against New Orleans.

Los Angeles are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games at home.

 

Prediction

The Pelicans have been great offensively averaging 122 points per game but they have allowed over 110 points per game in their last 3 games and have a lot of injuries for this game. On the other hand, the Clippers have been focused in playing good defense and have allowed only 104 points per game so far. The Clippers dominated the Pelicans last season and with all the injuries it's going to be dificult for New Orleans to keep up with the Clippers. I'm taking Los Angeles to win and cover at home.

PICK: Clippers -7.5 (-110)
