The Pelicans are 8-18 ATS in their last 26 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Trail Blazers are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Pelicans last 5 overall. The over is 6-1 in Trail Blazers last 7 overall. The Pelicans are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings
The Portland Trail Blazers aren't playing well, are without many key players, and they're on the end of a back to back. The New Orleans Pelicans are the healthier side, need to keep winning to position themselves better in the playoffs, and they're winning their last 5 games by an average of 16.6 points. Lot of points for a road team, but the Pels should win this comfortably. I'll lay the chalk, as this is a tough spot for the banged up Trail Blazers.
