The New Orleans Pelicans aren't a good road team, where they lose by an average of 12.8 points and shoot 41.5 percent from the field. However, the Pelicans have shown more recent signs of life, and they have a rest advantage here. The Los Angeles Clippers played yesterday, and while they've been the better team over the course of the season, they've been shaky over the last week and are losing their last five games by an average of 3.2 points. Not my favorite game on Monday's card, but give me the points with the Pelicans anyway.
