The Pelicans are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Lakers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Pelicans last 7 overall. The over is 5-1 in Lakers last 6 overall. The Pelicans are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles.

The New Orleans Pelicans have the rest advantage, and they're playing the better basketball at the moment, but they're not a team I completely trust just yet, especially on the road. The Los Angeles Lakers are on the end of a back to back, but they're likely going to get some needed reinforcements with the return of LeBron and possible AD as well. The Lakers need this game if they're going to sneak into the play-in game. This is the Lakers season, pretty much. In a near pick em spot, give me the Lakers, assuming LeBron and AD suit up.
