The Warriors are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 28-12-2 ATS in their last 42 games overall. The Pelicans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Warriors last 5 overall. The over is 5-1 in Pelicans last 6 overall. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in New Orleans and 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Golden State Warriors are on the end of a back to back and coming off a surprising loss to the Mavericks, but they're still winning and covering machines this season, and that puts them in the automatic bet category. The New Orleans Pelicans look to be treading in the wrong direction again, which includes losing their last five games by an average of 9.6 points while allowing 49.1 percent shooting from the field. The Warriors are still a team I'm looking to back on a consistent basis. I'll lay the chalk.
