Pelicans at Warriors picks and predictions


Warriors 116, Pelicans 109



The Warriors are one of 3 teams in the West with single-digit home losses. That said, they still aren’t worth an outright play at (-180).

Against the spread

BET WARRIORS -4.5 (-108).

The Warriors are the 2nd-best home-covering team in the NBA, posting a 21-11-1 ATS record at the Chase Center. Similarly, New Orleans is one of the worst road-covering teams in the Association, posting just a 12-19-1 record away from home.

The Warriors are also rolling, having covered 4 in a row and having won all 4 outright by at least this margin. Without Valanciunas as well, the Pelicans won’t be able to take advantage of Golden State’s size issues.

Ultimately, back the WARRIORS -4.5 (-108).


LEAN UNDER 230.5 (-110).

The Warriors are just 13-19-1 O/U at home this season, and the season-long series matchup favorites the Under as well.

New Orleans has gone Under in 5 of its last 6 games while Golden State has gone Under in 5 straight games, allowing 105 or fewer points in its last 4 straight. Without Curry, their defense remains solid, but their offense takes a huge hit.

That said, back the UNDER 230.5 (-110).
