The New Orleans Pelicans (38-37) aim for their sixth consecutive victory when they face the Golden State Warriors (39-37) at Chase Center on Tuesday.

The Pelicans were in action less than 24 hours ago, picking up a 124-90 blowout win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Meanwhile, the Warriors look to bounce back after coming up short in a 99-96 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves over the weekend.

Can New Orleans' winning ways continue? Or will Golden State put on a show for the Bay Area crowd?

Warriors vs. Pelicans Prediction & Pick

While the Pelicans have momentum on their side, they've been beating up some bad teams lately. Four of their last five victories have come against bottom-5 clubs in the NBA. Now, they must face the well-rested Warriors, who have won 13 of their last 15 games at Chase Center.

Unfortunately for New Orleans, heading to the Bay Area tends to result in a disaster. They've lost three straight away games against Golden State, having not defeated them on the road since February 2020. In fact, dating back to 2012, the Pelicans have lost 21 of their last 23 road matchups against the Warriors.

Considering how they held New Orleans to 99 points in their last meeting at Chase Center earlier this month, I see Golden State emerging victorious once again.

Final Score Prediction: Warriors: 119 | Pelicans: 114

Warriors vs. Pelicans Best Bet

Even though the Warriors should win, an 8.5-point spread is surprising given that the Pelicans have won five straight outings. Furthermore, New Orleans covered the spread in each of those contests, whereas Golden State is an underwhelming 2-5 ATS in its last seven games.

Look for the Pelicans to avoid a blowout by keeping things closer than expected.

Bet: Pelicans +8.5 (-108)
