Capper Projections for the Lakers-Pelicans, Warriors-Kings Games

There were nine picks on the Lakers-Pelicans game and twelve for the Warriors-Kings from the nation's top sports handicappers.

The Lakers-Pelicans game featured four plays on the spread, three on the total and three on the money line.

Spread plays were 3-1 in favor of LA while money line plays were 2-1 in favor of New Orleans.

Ashlee Kiddell has been hot of late, going 6-0 with his last six picks.  He's on the Lakers money line.

"Decades of sports insights distilled into top-notch betting picks.  Ashlee has accumulated a vast experience of sport over the past decade and has a history of picking winners in soccer, the NFL and horse racing. As a Brit, he predominantly specializes in soccer and has had good success in betting and tipping on competitions such as the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and the World Cup. However, Ashlee is not limited to just soccer and is a vehement NFL fan who has quickly got to grips with the US sports market. With qualifications in Sport Business Management and Sports Journalism, as well as experience in producing written content for a number of online publications, he is a knowledgable handicapper who loves to take a deeper dive into statistics and analysis."

All nine handicappers with picks on the Warriors-Kings spread are backing Golden State.

These are not necessarily cappers that sit atop the leaderboard in the NBA however.

Winners and Whiners warns against picking the Warriors here.

"The public will be all over the Warriors here, but this is not the same Warriors team from previous years. Their biggest liability has always been post defense, but they have been able to overcome it with the elite perimeter scoring of Curry and Thompson, and Draymond Green held his own against most centers. Well, the Splash Brothers are not playing at the same level as they used to, and Draymond Green has begun to show signs of aging as well. This Sacramento team is young, and will be able to capitalize on the weaknesses of the Warriors."
