Los Angeles Clippers vs New Orleans Pelicans 11/14/2019 – The Los Angeles Clippers (7-4) will be dropping another weapon in their latest trip in the Bayou, as All-Star forward Paul George will reportedly make his season debut on Thursday against the New Orleans Pelicans (2-8) at Smoothie King Center. George’s arrival will certainly provide more offensive firepower for the Clippers, who are 5-1 against the NBA spread in their last six games.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting

A tight match-up vs. the Raptors 98-88 and a loss to Rockets 102-93 should serve as an eye-opener for the Clippers that they will definitely need another bona fide scorer next to Kawhi Leonard in order to top the Western Conference. George, who finished third in MVP voting last season, will certainly bring a lot of good stuff for the Clippers, who are just roaming outside the top-10 in points scored and points allowed per game.

Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (26.9 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 5.9 APG), Lou Williams (22.3 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 5.6 APG), Montrezl Harrell (19.8 PPG, 7.1 RPG, 2.2 APG)

New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The New Orleans Pelicans have been really terrific on offense, averaging 117 points per game – 4th in the league. On the defensive end, not so much. New Orleans is allowing opponents to score a staggering 122 points per game, making them the worst defensive team in the NBA. Brandon Ingram might be dropping 20+ points a night, but unless they put more effort into defense, the Pelicans won’t be heading anywhere but the lottery.

Players to Watch: Brandon Ingram (25.9 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 3.9 APG), Jrue Holiday (14.6 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 7.2 APG, Josh Hart (12.6 PPG, 6.7 RPG, 1.4 APG)

Los Angeles Clippers vs New Orleans Pelicans Betting Picks

Chances are high the Pelicans will be playing the Clippers without their core four of Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, Lonzo Ball, and Zion Williamson, all due to injuries. The injury to Landry Shamet is going to sting the Clippers a bit, but won’t much impact the team’s efficiency on both ends if George can play at least 70 percent of his ability.

Moneyline: The Clippers appear to be the right NBA betting line pick for this match not only because of George’s season-debut but also the Pelicans could be short-staffed on Thursday due to injuries to their key players.

ATS: This will be the fourth time the Clippers play a sub .500 team, and they won and cover the spread in the previous three – except Portland. The Clippers are also 5-1 against the spread in their last six games.

TOTALs: This game will go UNDER the NBA over/under totals of 236.5 points. Sure, the Pelicans boast a top-5 offense, but without Ingram, Ball and Hart, I bet they can’t even exceed 100 points. Worse, they’ll be facing arguably the best perimeter defensive team in the NBA possibly at full strength.

Score Prediction: 112-95 Clippers
