ATS Pick: Pelicans +4

My NBA best bet for Friday is for the Pelicans to keep this game close as underdogs and cover the spread at +4.

The New Orleans Pelicans are pushing for a higher playoff seed and bring full intensity into Friday’s game, while the Golden State Warriors, already set for the Play-In Tournament, might rest key players like Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. With the Warriors possibly lowering their guard and preparing for a Play-In game against the Lakers, the Pelicans have all the motivation to play hard.

Zion Williamson and CJ McCollum continue to lead effectively, and the rising star Trey Murphy III adds significant depth. Given these factors, betting on the Pelicans ATS is smart. Their urgency and the Warriors’ potential lineup adjustments make this a favorable matchup for New Orleans.




Prop: CJ McCollum Under 24½ Points (-104)

CJ McCollum faces a tough night against the Golden State Warriors, making the Under on his 24.5-point line a smart bet. The New Orleans Pelicans have slowed their pace considerably, ranking as the 6th slowest in their last 15 away games, which limits McCollum’s scoring opportunities.

Coupled with their position as the 5th-worst team in offensive rebounds during this stretch, McCollum’s chances for second-chance points drop significantly. Additionally, playing away from home typically suppresses player statistics. Given the slow pace, poor rebounding, and no home-court advantage, NBA betting on McCollum to score under 24.5 points is a well-founded choice.
