The Pelicans are 5-16 ATS in their last 21 Wednesday games and 17-8 ATS in their last 25 road games. The Lakers are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 6-1 in Pelicans last 7 overall. The under is 4-1 in Lakers last 5 overall. The Pelicans are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
One win doesn't change the outlook of the Los Angeles Lakers, but they may have found something with Westbrook coming off the bench. Also, the New Orleans Pelicans are dealing with a bunch of injuries, and they're still without one of their best players in Ingram. The Pelicans should certainly be favored, but this is a more than winnable game for the Lakers at home. I'll take a shot with the free bucket.
