The New Orleans Pelicans are averaging 114.2 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 112.7 points on 47.4 percent shooting. Zion Williamson is averaging 26 points and 7 rebounds, while Brandon Ingram is averaging 23.9 points and 5 rebounds.

The New Orleans Pelicans are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.6 rebounds per game.

The Golden State Warriors are averaging 118.2 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 117.7 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 29.4 points and 6.3 assists, while Klay Thompson is averaging 21.7 points and 2.4 assists.

The Pelicans are 8-18 ATS in their last 26 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Warriors are 37-15-1 ATS in their last 53 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Pelicans last 5 overall. The under is 7-3 in Warriors last 10 overall. The Pelicans are 1-5-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Golden State and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The New Orleans Pelicans are on the end of a back to back, but they're playing some of their best ball of the season right now, and they're fighting to potentially stay out of the play-in tournament. The Pels entered last night, winning their last 5 games by an average of 16.6 points. The Golden State Warriors continue to run hot and cold, and they're just not a team I'm thrilled to back in the big favorite role. This line is steep. Give me the Pelicans.
