Game: New Orleans Pelicans at Los Angeles Clippers Apr 22 2012 9:35PM
Prediction: Los Angeles Clippers
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: I'm laying the points with the Clippers on Sunday. We rode underdog Denver to a win yesterday, going against the Suns who were in a virtual must-win spot. The Clippers need a win as they look to overtake the Lakers in the Pacific Division, but I don't expect the "pressure," if any, to get to this team. New Orleans has been a covering machine of late...but most of it came at home. New Orleans, in their last three road games (sans pathetic Charlotte) are 0-3 SU/ATS despite getting a lot of points. The Hornets lost to Memphis, San Antonio, and the Suns, by an average final score of 108-90! The last time they played on the Clippers' home floor, the Hornets were whacked 97-85...trailing by 19 points at the start of the fourth quarter. New Orleans made 50% of their FGA in the contest, yet still were no match for LAC. Blake Griffin and Chris Paul are both probable for this one and I suspect they'll look to build a big lead out of the blocks. The Hornets are on a 3-12 ATS slide after winning 6 or 7 of their previous 8 games. And like I stated earlier, they were no match in their last 3 road games against playoff-bound or contending opponents. More of the same. I'm laying the points with the Clippers on Sunday. Thanks! GL! Scott.
