Pelicans vs. Clippers NBA Play-In Odds

The Clippers will host the Pelicans on Friday night for the final spot in the Western Conference Playoffs and the right to face the Phoenix Suns as the eighth seed.
The Clippers looked to be in control of getting the seventh seed on the road against the Timberwolves on Tuesday night after Karl-Anthony Towns fouled out of the game early in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for Clippers fans, Anthony Edwards led the Wolves on a run as they won and covered en route to claiming the seventh seed and a first round matchup with the Grizzlies.
The Pelicans started the season 1-12 in their first 13 games, but they have continued to improve as the season has gone on, and they are just one win away from improbably getting into the postseason. With Brandon Ingram, CJ McCollum and Jonas Valanciunas leading the way, they will be a tough out on Friday night.
