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.

Lakers</a></h2><p> </p><p>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.</p><p>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.</p><p>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.</p><p>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.</p><h2> </h2><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong>Free NBA Pick: </strong><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/" title="Find Live NBA Odds Here">Pelicans -6</a></h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Best Line Offered: <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4423&amp;book=BetOnline" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Have You Set Up Your BetOnline Account Yet?">at BetOnline</a></h2><p>[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":3068648, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,1389,999996,180,123], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1 }[/]</p>
