Bet on Pelicans vs. Lakers

The Pelicans really have nothing to offer as they are without a big chunk of their production. The Lakers don’t have a great lineup either, but the team has some young talent trying to prove itself and doing pretty well in recent games. The Lakers are also at home, which should provide an additional boost.
