New Orleans Pelicans vs. Los Angeles Clippers Prediction: Bounce Back on Sunday with the Clips

Sunday night NBA returns, and I found a great bet to close our week. We had our first losing day yesterday on free picks, which could be good for us because it means revenge. The New Orleans Pelicans travel to LA for an affair with the Clippers.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Los Angeles Clippers Prediction

This is a big game in terms of playoff position as both of these teams appear to be in a play-in-game situation. The Clippers have had an up-and-down season, but a lot of that is to do with the injuries they have had to deal with. Kawhi Leonard has not been able to play this season, and star Paul George missed a large part of the year with an injury.

Norman Powell, who was added to this roster during the year, also has been out since coming to the team. This is a team that, despite all the injuries, has shown they are a playoff-caliber group. A large thanks goes to head coach Ty Lue, who has done an amazing job with this team. Reggie Jackson and Marcus Morris have really stepped up for the Clippers this year along the way. The Pelicans started their season winning just two of their first ten games but have been able to flip the script on their season. The addition of guard CJ McCollum has been a breath of fresh air for the Pelicans. Brandon Ingram has really stepped up this year, and this is a team playing with a lot of chemistry at the moment. 

I am going to back the Clippers on their home floor tonight. The return of Paul George makes this an interesting clippers team that has the potential to make a run. This is an experienced roster that plays with a lot of chemistry. These are also key games for position, so I expect a playoff-type of atmosphere tonight. The Pelicans have been on a good run as of late, but this is a great fade spot tonight after a road trip. I believe the game plan of head coach Ty Lue will be on point and that the home crowd will lift the Clippers to a big home win. I am going to take the short money line tonight. Let’s close the week with another winner!
