Betting on the Golden State Warriors (+3)

Regular Season Record: 32-32

The Warriors got the cure to their two-game skid in the form of a match against the going-nowhere Houston Rockets, earning an easy 113-87 win on the road last Saturday. After a full day of rest Sunday, Golden State will get back to action against the Pelicans as a road team again. If anything, the Warriors have covered the spread 21 times in 38 total games coming off a win this season, so far. Moreover, the Warriors are 4-3 against the spread in their last seven road games. If Golden State is to win back to back, the team will have to do it still without Kelly Oubre, who’s reportedly dealing with injuries in his left wrist. But at least the Warriors have Stephen Curry. The two-time league MVP has been playing out of his mind this season and he just scored 30 points with 7 3-pointers in the win over Houston. Golden State is averaging 112.9 points per game.

The under is 3-1 in the Warriors’ last four games away from home.

Betting on the New Orleans Pelicans (-3)

Regular Season Record: 29-35

The Pelicans have gained some momentum, heading into the game against the Warriors. Zion Williamson and company have won both of their last two games, the last one was a 140-136 overtime victory on the road over the Minnesota Timberwolves this past Saturday.  Williamson is routinely tearing apart defenders this season. Against the T’wolves, he had 37 points on 14-of-17 shooting from the field. Williamson is a mismatch problem because of his athleticism and bulk, and it’s fair to assume that he’ll dominate anew against Golden State. On the season, Williamson is putting up 26.8 points on 61.3 percent shooting from the floor. The Pelicans, who are scoring 114.9 points per game — seventh in the league —  are also getting great contributions from the likes of Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram.

The Pelicans are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall.

Writer’s Prediction

The Pelicans win, 120-116.
