Clippers vs Pelicans NBA Picks and Predictions for Thursday, January 13

Los Angeles Clippers vs New Orleans Pelicans game preview, picks and predictions for this Thursday Night NBA basketball game.

Clippers vs Pelicans Odds: 

This Los Angeles Clippers vs New Orleans Pelicans game set to tipoff this Thursday Night, January 13, 2022 at 8:00pm at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

The latest NBA odds have the Pelicans as a -3.5 point favorite and the over/under at 217 total points.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting Preview: 

The LA Clippers come into this game winning their last two games in a row, which included wins against the Hawks and then on Tuesday Night against the Nuggets. They now sit in that Western Conference 8th seed at 21-21.

With a day of rest, they’ll now try to get over that 500 mark if they can pull off a win in this one. Amir Coffey has been red hot from 3-point land this last two games, going 8 of 15 and leading this LA team to grab those two wins.

For this matchup, you should see similar numbers by Coffey since he’ll be going up against this New Orleans team that’s one of the worst in the entire NBA defending the 3-pointer.

Justice Winslow and Luke Kennard are both questionable for this game while Paul George and Kawhi Leonard will still both be out due to their elbow and knee injuries.

The Clippers the last 3 games have playing top tier defense holding opponents to an average of 100 points, but their offense has been struggling only scoring an average of 100.3 points.

LA is 0-5 against the spread in their last 5 games against New Orleans and the total has gone under in 6 of the Clippers’ last 9 games on the road.

New Orleans Betting Preview: 

The Pelicans come into this game at 15-26 overall, but the good news is that they did pick up a big home win on Tuesday Night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

New Orleans over the last 3 games are scoring an average of 105.7 points lead by Brandon Ingram putting up an average of 29 points.

Unfortunately though with Zion Williamson always out with injury, their defense has been subpar and giving up an average of 110.5 points per game.

The Pelicans are 6-2 against the spread in their last 8 games at home and the total has gone under in 10 of New Orleans’ last 14 games against an opponent in the Pacific Division.
