Golden St Warriors vs. New Orleans Pelicans Pick Prediction 10/28/2019
Warriors at Pelicans—NBA free pick is Golden St Warriors +4.5. Golden St has a terrible first half in their loss at Oklahoma City. Many though the Thunder would be a lottery team when Russell Westbrook left town but there is talent surrounding Chris Paul on that team. Key injury for New Orleans as guard Jrue Holliday has a left knee sprain that forced him to miss his last game. Pelicans have lost three straight and is 0-3 with home seven point loss to Dallas. When professional teams get embarrassed they usually respond back with a strong effort the next game. Warriors played two good defensive teams to start the season in the Clippers and Thunder. OKC sits second in defensive efficiency. It should be a bit easier for the Warriors against the Pelicans defense especially without Jrue Holiday in the lineup. Play Golden St +4.5.
Charlotte Hornets vs. LA Clippers Pick Prediction 10/28/2019
Hornets at Clippers—Free pick is Charlotte Hornets and LA Clippers over the total of 225.5. This game could become a blowout and lack defensive intensity. Charlotte is a bad defensive team allowing 48.8% shooting. It will be the worst defense the Clippers have faced this season. Charlotte sits second worst in the NBA defensive efficiency ratings by allowing 118.4 points per 100 possessions. Clippers aren’t too far behind at giving up 115.3 points per 100 possessions. What Charlotte does well is make three pointers at 41.7% while the Clippers are giving up 38.1% from three. LA has put up some strong numbers connecting on 53.2% from the floor and 42.1% from three. Even if this becomes a blowout the Clippers will have quality still on the court. LAC is number one in the NBA offensive efficiency ratings at 121.9 points per 100 possessions. Charlotte allows 122 per game and Clippers 118. There will be points scored if it is a blowout because the defense becomes lax. Don’t want to touch this point spread because of the Hornets three point shooting could allow for a late cover. Play Charlotte and LA Clippers over 225.5.
