The New Orleans Pelicans have an under-supported superstar and got caught up in a trading scandal that has made their franchise one of the least respected in the league.
As a result, the Pelicans have performed poorly in some key ATS roles that we can look to bet against them in the future.
For example, New Orleans has been extremely poor when playing the second game of a back-to-back where it rarely covers the spread.
New Orleans doesn’t perform well against the spread against the Eastern Conference, either.
When favored at home, the Pels also fail to cover more often than not.
When they have won games, they often don’t follow it up with a good performance the next night out, as they have done poorly ATS in that role.
There really have been very few roles that we might trust the Pelicans in the future.
The only time they have shown a bit of marginal spread success is when they are facing Western Conference opposition.
A more likely opportunity to bet on New Orleans Pelicans games is to wager on the total in games when they are on the second game of a back-to-back.
The Pelicans are consistent OVER team in that role.
Also, when the Pels are coming off a loss, they have a strong tendency to go OVER the next time out.
When the Pelicans are an underdog, especially on the road, that has been a sign to go OVER, as well.
In addition, New Orleans seems to go OVER in games played against non-divisional foes.
We can look to a few spots to consider playing on New Orleans games to go UNDER, particularly when it has two or three days off exactly.
Also, when coming off a win the Pelicans are a team that leans to the UNDER next time out.
When playing within its division, the Pels also go UNDER in general.
