NBA Betting Trends

Los Angeles

The Clippers are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Los Angeles is 5-1 ATS in its last six games played on zero days of rest. 

New Orleans

The Pelicans are 4-0 ATS in their last four Thursday games. New Orleans is 4-12 ATS in its last 16 home games.


Like I mentioned yesterday when it was still a possibility George might play, chemistry is an issue in the first number of games no matter how good the players on the court are. Adding George to the fold will be a process and while New Orleans is a bit beat up, it was Monday too when it hung in there for the most part with Houston. The Pelicans had a couple rest days before this contest, while LA is fatigued from last night aside from George. I'm taking a shot at New Orleans hanging right in there until the final buzzer tonight.
