Los Angeles Clippers DFS Spin

Paul George, who missed a game on March 4th for dizziness, returned to action on Thursday vs. the Warriors and scored 17 points with seven rebounds, five assists, three steals and three triples in 27 minutes. George said he had too much caffeine which led to his DNP, but the Clippers were probably looking for any excuse to get him a game off before the All-Star break. Despite a poor shooting line (5-of-14 FGs), George was his usual self and only played limited minutes because the game was a blowout.

New Orleans Pelicans DFS Spin

The Pelicans snapped a three-game losing skid on Friday, aided by Brandon Ingram's game-high 28 points (11-of-14 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), seven rebounds and four assists. New Orleans was coming off a 30-point loss which coach Stan Van Gundy described as "really embarrassing," but they turned the tables tonight with their own blowout win. The score limited Ingram to just 25 minutes yet he still rounded out this fantasy gem with one block and zero turnovers. The Pelicans have seven remaining back-to-back sets, so it'll be a hectic finish to the season for the West's No. 12 seed (16-22).

Clippers vs. Pelicans Betting Prediction

The Clippers are just 7-20 against the spread in their last 27 meetings with the Pelicans in New Orleans and are only 3-7 against the number in the last 10 meetings overall. The Clippers are also just 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games and are winless against the number in their last four games coming off a win. Meanwhile, the Pelicans are 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games as an underdog and are 9-3 against the number in their last 12 games as a home dog.
