The New Orleans Pelicans and Los Angeles Clippers meet Sunday in NBA action at the crypto.com Arena. The New Orleans Pelicans look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Clippers need for a win after losing nine of their last 13 games.

CJ McCollum is averaging 25.9 points and 4.9 rebounds, while Brandon Ingram is averaging 22.9 points and 5.7 rebounds.

The Pelicans are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Pelicans last 4 overall. The over is 4-0-2 in Clippers last 6 overall. The Pelicans are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 38-16 ATS in the last 54 meetings.
This should be a fun game between two teams that could very well square off in the play-in tournament. And I get the Clippers being favored at home with PG13 back in the mix. However, we're getting the free bucket with the team that's playing the better basketball. The New Orleans Pelicans have been on a roll these last couple of weeks, and that includes winning their last five games by an average of 6.8 points. The Los Angeles Clippers only win in the favorite role by an average of 2.6 points. I'll take a shot with the free bucket and the team in better form.
