The Clippers are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a straight up win. The Pelicans are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Thursday games. The under is 7-3-1 in Clippers last 11 Thursday games. The over is 21-6 in Pelicans last 27 Thursday games. The Clippers are 6-21 ATS in the last 27 meetings in New Orleans and 16-37 ATS in the last 53 meetings.

I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams that have been shaky at best the last few weeks, but they're both coming off strong wins that could be a slight turning point in their season. The difference here is the New Orleans Pelicans are the healthier team, and they're at home, where they play their best ball. The Los Angeles Clippers are still without a lot of key players, and they're losing their last five games by an average of seven points. I'll lay the bucket with the Pels if forced to pick.
