I'm taking this bet against Lakers simply because I believe they'll lose next two games intentionally although they've been hot lately winning 4 straight; I'm a bit confused by so as they are in a tight battle with Phoenix for 2nd draft pick so they won't mind "tanking" for obvious reasons. New Orleans will rest Davis, their best player beside Cousins, but even without him Pelicans are good enough to beat Lakers and try to finish this season on a high note as they're going in opposite direction than Lakers are at the moment, as they've lost 4 in a row. Personally, Pelicans will have a lot of work to do in next season in terms of adding better backup for Davis and Cousins, as this team definitively lacks a couple more ingredients, first and most a reliable outside shooter and generally a better rotation. Still, they've showed flashes of solid team basketball and in games like this taking "underdog" has tons of value regarding how good the offered odds are. I would take anyone over 2.00 against Lakers on any given day.
