The New Orleans Pelicans and Los Angeles Clippers meet Sunday in NBA action at the crypto.com Arena. The New Orleans Pelicans look to build on their 3-2 record. The Los Angeles Clippers look to snap a 3-game losing streak.

The New Orleans Pelicans are averaging 119.8 points on 48.8 percent shooting and allowing 115.4 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Brandon Ingram is averaging 22 points and 5.7 rebounds, while Zion Williamson is averaging 22 points and 6.7 rebounds.

Paul George is averaging 20.3 points and 7.5 rebounds, while John Wall is averaging 15.3 points and 2.8 rebounds.

The Pelicans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS loss. The Clippers are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 6-0 in Pelicans last 6 overall. The under is 4-1 in Clippers last 5 overall. The Pelicans are 38-17 ATS in the last 55 meetings.

The Los Angeles Clippers remain one of the worst offensive teams in the league in terms of scoring and outside shooting. The New Orleans Pelicans are still without some of their better players, as Ingram is out and Williamson is dealing with a hip injury. Early start, especially for the West Coast. I expect a sluggish, low scoring contest. I’ll take the under in this spot.
