LINE MOVEMENT

Los Angeles opened as 3-point home favorites and that's where the number sits at the majority of online sportsbooks. As for the total, it opened at 238 but has dropped a full point to 237.

As of this writing, 55% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Pelicans to cover the point spread tonight. Meanwhile, 60% of betting tickets are on the under.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

DeMarcus Cousins is out for the year for the Pelicans while Danilo Gallinari (hand), Avery Bradley (groin), and Patrick Beverley (knee, out for the year) will all miss tonight's game for L.A.

BETTING STRATEGY

I don't care that the betting total has been set sky-high for this game: Both of these teams are over-covering machines. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Los Angeles. It is also a perfect 6-0 in the Pelicans' last six games overall, is 5-0 in their last five games following a straight up win of more than 10 points, and is 6-0 in their last six games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in its previous contest. On the other side, the over is 6-1 in the Clippers' last seven games overall, is 4-1 in their last five games coming off a win, and is 6-0 in their last six games when their opponent allows 100 points or more in its previous contest.
