New Orleans Pelicans vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

The New Orleans Pelicans are a team I was high on before the season, and with their current play, I did consider them in the underdog role. It's also important to note the Pels have won 4 of the last 5 meetings against the Clippers. However, the Clippers continue to rack up the wins and covers, and they're not a team I'm eager to step in front of. The Clippers keep making a case as the best team in the league, and they've covered 8 of their last 10 games. I'll ride the hot hand and side with the Clippers.
