The Pelicans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Warriors are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Pelicans are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Golden State and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Warriors aren't the team we expected to see, as the defense has serious flaws and there's issues with their rebounding as well. So, while the Pelicans are one of the worst teams in the league at the moment, you have to like value in the points here. We're getting damn near 20 points, which is downright insane. I'll take New Orleans, as I'm not laying this sort of chalk here.
