We go over some of the best betting options for Monday’s matchup between the Los Angeles Clippers and New Orleans Pelicans.

The Los Angeles Clippers have lost three straight games without Kawhi Leonard (foot) and will attempt to extend their overall winning streak to five games on Monday against the Los Angeles Clippers. Both teams are dealing with multiple injuries, but the Pelicans have all of their go-to scorers. Let’s go over the best betting options for the matchup on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Clippers vs. Pelicans, 8:00 p.m. ET, NBA League Pass

Pick ATS: Pelicans +1.5

The Clippers are the much better team when healthy, but the Pelicans are 1-1 against Los Angeles this year despite the favorite having Paul George and Leonard available on both contests. New Orleans is 4-1 ATS in its last five home games against the Clippers and 8-4 ATS as a home underdog overall this season. George has been on a tear without Leonard this year, but will likely need a ceiling game from one of his teammates to keep pace with Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson on offense. PG-13 should be spread thin without any playmakers to work with, so I like the Pelicans’ odds to protect their home court.

Player Prop: TBD
