The Golden State Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans are two teams trending in opposite directions heading into their Monday night matchup at Oracle Arena. The Pelicans have lost five straight games on the road and seven out of their last eight overall. The Warriors on the other hand have won four straight and an NBA record 47 consecutive regular season home games.

Odds makers feature Golden State as double digit home favorites once again. In eight games they have been favored by at least 15 points, the Dubs have managed to cover the spread on only four of those occasions. Golden State is 16-14 ATS at home this season, while New Orleans is 13-20 ATS on the road.

Check out the highlights from the last time these two teams met back on Halloween when Stephen Curry erupted for 53 points:



Virtual sports book BetOnline lists the current OVER/UNDER line at 230 total points. The Warriors are averaging 121.3 points during their current home stand. According to OddsShark.com, the total has gone OVER in 7 of the Golden State's last 10 games at home. The total has also gone OVER in four of New Orleans' last five contests.

From Andre Iguodala's ankle injury to the resurgence of Mo Buckets, lets ponder deep inside the Twittersphere heading into Monday night:
