The Los Angeles Lakers will take on the New Orleans Pelicans in a huge Western Conference Showdown. While both teams have struggled some this season, they still have a chance of making the playoffs. Every game down the stretch will be huge for both squads.
Let’s break this one down with my Pelicans vs. Lakers prop bets.

Pelicans vs. Lakers Prediction
Los Angeles comes into this one as a one-point favorite, which should be a good indication that this game is going to be close. That’s perfect for my play today as I have a Pelicans vs. Lakers same-game parlay with player props that I love.
Pelicans vs. Lakers Player Props
Anthony Davis 25-Plus Points
There might not be a player in the world that I dislike betting on more than Anthony Davis. He’s scored 17 and eight points in his last two games, but tonight that changes. We need 25 here and given some of the injuries to the Pelicans and their lack of rim protection, this should be easy for Davis.
In his three games against New Orleans, he’s averaging 27.3 points per game, shooting 57.6% from the field. This is a return to home game for Davis as he started his career in New Orleans
D’Angelo Russell Two-Plus Made Threes
D’Angelo Russell has been going off for the Lakers. Honestly, he’s played well for most of the season and is now getting recognition because he plays for a team in Los Angeles. Anyways, he’s hit two threes in five of his first seven games with the Lakers and in one of those games, he got injured and played just nine minutes.
It won’t be easy for him to get shots off if the Pelicans’ defense can do what they’re able to do. However, that hasn’t really been the way things have gone for them this season.
