The up-and-down Pelicans (16-22) will start a defining stretch of their season on Sunday at home against one of the league’s best teams in the Clippers (25-14), and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, moneyline odds and over-under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet on BetMGM.

After consecutive games against bottom-dwellers in the league, the Pelicans now have a string of eight consecutive games against playoff teams from last season, including matchups with the Clippers, Lakers and Nuggets. For a team that can ill afford to drop further out of the playoff race, it’s a defining stretch of the season for New Orleans.

Advice and prediction

After two performances on opposite ends of the spectrum, it’s harder than ever to predict the Pelicans. New Orleans has a habit of playing to the level of its opponent, which could make them an enticing play.

Instead, a return to the normal makes more sense in taking over 232.5 as two top-six offenses battle.

Prediction: Clippers 122, Pelicans 118
