The Pick: Pelicans +4.5 at -110 (bet365)

The New Orleans Pelicans, who may have finally turned things around, will face the LA Lakers on Wednesday, February 15th, 2023. The Lakers, who are six games below .500, will host the game with a start time of 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PM PT.

The Pelicans are heading into the game as underdogs, with the spread set at +4.5 (bet365). That handicap should be taken as LA can’t be counted on without LeBron James active.

  • LA 26-32 overall: -4.5 (bet365)

  • Game time: Wednesday, February 15th, 2023 @ 10:00 PM ET

LA Lakers: Recent Form Alert

  • LA Lakers were 22-25 (January 23rd, 2023)
  • Heading into this game they are 26-32
  • The Lakers are 4-7 in their last 11 games

The LA Lakers are 26-32 on the season. Mid-afternoon, it’s not clear whether LeBron James or Anthony Davis will play. Each is questionable and that makes the Lakers really hard to back. It’s not like LA’s fortunes have changed following all the trades that they made. They lost their last game by 12 points to Portland and there’s no reason why the Pelicans won’t be competitive tonight.

LA backers will need at least James to be listed as probable to feel good about taking LA on the moneyline. But our recommendation is to go with the Pelicans in this one with the helpers.
