The under is 5-0 in Pelicans last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Kings last 5 overall. The under is 4-0-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The New Orleans Pelicans are playing some of their most consistent ball of the season right now, and they need to keep winning in order to lock up that ninth seed, so they can host the opening game of the play-in tournament. The Sacramento Kings are still without their best players, and they're losing their last five games by an average of six points while struggling defensively. Teams like the Kings that are without their best players and don't have anything to play for this time of year are tough to back with confidence. Give me the Pels and the chalk.
