Golden State will be playing the second half of a back-to-back after playing on the road against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday before returning home to host the Pelicans. The Warriors defeated the Dallas Mavericks 119-114 on Sunday as Stephen Curry exploded for 48 points hitting 11 3 pointers as the Warriors held off a pesky Mavericks squad.

Golden State is leading the Pacific division but has not played well against the spread failing to cover 6 of its last 7 versus teams from the Southwest division, each of its last 4 when playing the second half of a back-to-back and 16 of its last 21 versus Western Conference opponents. New Orleans has covered 4 of its last 5 overall. Final Score Prediction, Golden State Warriors win but fail to cover ATS 125-120
