Pelicans are heavy road-dogs vs Warriors

The Golden State Warriors will have a date with the New Orleans Pelicans tonight at Oracle Arena after knocking around the Chicago Bulls yesterday. The Warriors’ frontcourt will be put to the test from the Pellies’ tandem of DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis and will be shorthanded as Kevin Durant is doubtful for tonight’s game. Despite missing Durant, the Warriors still opened as 11.5-point favorites to get the W.

SHARK BITES
  • New Orleans is 8-3 SU and ATS in its last 11 games.
  • Golden State is 4-1 ATS in its last five games at home.
  • New Orleans is ranked sixth in scoring, averaging 108.9 points per game.

The Pelicans might be figuring out how to utilize Cousins to secure victories in the tough Western Conference. The Pelicans beat up on Oklahoma City and San Antonio in the past week and are 7-3 ATS on the road this season. They’ve also had recent success for bettors who like to wager on the spread as they’re 4-1 ATS in their last five games versus Golden State. If you’re considering to bet their moneyline, think again as New Orleans has lost 10 straight games to Golden State.

The Warriors may end up winning the title again this season but they’re not the juggernaut they used to be. Golden State is 1-5 ATS in its last six games and are 8-11 ATS overall. Stephen Curry is averaging a career-low 38 percent from three-point range and with Durant having injury trouble to start the year, the Warriors will need to rely on the former MVP to carry the load in his absence.

The total opened at 228 and while taking an OVER can be dangerous with such a high mark, any game that Golden State is involved can turn into an offensive explosion. The OVER has hit in six of the last seven games in this matchup and the Warriors continue to pace the league in scoring, averaging just under 118 points per game.
