Warriors vs. Pelicans, 9:30 p.m. ET
Pick ATS: Warriors -6
Golden State is likely going to play its better guys more in this game, while the Pelicans will sit their key players. The Warriors have some incentive with the No. 3 seed and should be able to win this game with secondary guys.
Over/Under: Under 221
Golden State is 1-5 on overs in the last six games. New Orleans is 2-6 on overs in the last eight games. We’ve also got the potential for mass benchings as the game goes on. The under is the play here, even with a relatively lower total.
