Bet Tonight’s Lakers vs. Pelicans Game

Due to a rash of injuries, New Orleans will roll out a starting five of Toney Douglas, James Ennis, Dante Cunningham, Alexis Ajinca and Omer Asik, same as the team did on Wednesday. But even when the Pelicans have been at full strength they’ve been unable to beat the Lakers, who could complete a season sweep of New Orleans with a win tonight.

The Lakers are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 trips to New Orleans and 8-2 agians thte spread in their last 10 games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400. The road team is also 27-11 at the betting window in the last 38 meetings between these two teams.
