The under is 13-3 in Pelicans last 16 overall. The under is 5-2 in Clippers last 7 overall. The Pelicans are 39-17 ATS in the last 56 meetings.
The New Orleans Pelicans are playing improved ball as of late, but they still have a consistency issue and not a team I trust on the road. The Los Angeles Clippers play their best ball at home, and they're winning their last 5 games by an average of 7.8 points. We're not being asked to lay anything crazy. At home, I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Clippers.
