Pelicans fall to Lakers

New Orleans lost 114-110 at home Wednesday night versus Los Angeles to drop to 6-12 overall and 4-5 at home.

Thunder throttled by Trail Blazers

Oklahoma City lost 136-119 Wednesday night at Portland to drop to 6-11 overall and 1-7 on the road. The Thunder trailed 104-77 through three quarters in the lopsided loss.

NBA Betting Trends

New Orleans

The Pelicans are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games versus the Western Conference. New Orleans is 8-23 ATS in its last 31 Friday games.

Oklahoma City

The Thunder are 4-1 ATS in their last five Friday games. Oklahoma City is 5-1 ATS in its last six home games.


New Orleans will likely be without Lonzo Ball again tonight as he battles an illness. New Orleans put a lot of heart and emotion into its last game versus LA only to fall short with a poor fourth quarter. This could be a letdown spot on the road two nights later. Considering OKC has been tough at home for the most part, I'm going to go with the hosts here.
