Pelicans at Clippers odds, lines, picks and predictions
Clippers 121, Pelicans 115
The Pelicans are 3-0 against the Clippers this season, winning each game by at least 13 points. However, all those games were without G Paul George in the lineup for the Clippers.
The Clippers are 21-16 at home this season, while the Pelicans are only 16-22 on the road despite that they have won four of their last five road games.
If the Clippers are going to score points at the clip they have the last three games, it will be hard to beat them.
Take the CLIPPERS (-140).
