The Pelicans have not looked great since the trade deadline, but all that may change tonight against the automatic fade Lakers. Lay the points with great haste tonight.

  New Orleans Pelicans vs L.A. Lakers


Since acquiring DeMarcus Cousins, the Pelicans have won one game and it was when Cousins was suspended. Cousins was visibly upset after their last loss against the Spurs, a game where they played well and were tied in the final seconds of the game.

However, after all the talk and probably some frustration on the part of Cousins, they Pelicans get a cushy matchup against the tanking Lakers. If you read my piece over the All Star Break, you know I am going out of my way to actively fade the tanking Lakers.

LA is 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games and I have faded them in almost every game they’ve played post All Star Break. Tonight is going to be no different.

The NBA Odds have already increased from -4 ½ in favor of the Pels to -6 ½. Don’t let them get any higher without putting in some action on laying the points. The Pelicans are going to put it all together tonight and I think they win and win by double figures.
