Vegas Play of the Day: Los Angeles Clippers at New Orleans

Here’s the latest installment of the Play of the Day, which uses odds from the South Point.. Our three sports writers started with a $10,000 bankroll — fictional, of course.

New Orleans Pelicans plus-4.5 vs. Los Angeles Clippers: $550 to win $500 : It will be tough for the Clippers to get up for this game, having beat Oklahoma City Sunday in a nationally televised contest. The Clippers put up 125 points against Oklahoma City, putting on a good show for an ABC audience in showing they could win the Western Conference. I expect Los Angeles to have a big-time letdown.

New Orleans, which should receive a boost from a soldout hometown crowd, is looking for a signature victory. This game means more to the Pelicans than the Clippers, plain and simple. Play New Orleans.

Standings: Bern (12-6, $11,420), Keefer (5-9, $8,197.50), Brewer (5-9-2, $7,460)
