While the Warriors aren’t viewed among the top title contenders this season no one expected the five-time defending Western Conference champ Warriors to struggle this much in the opening week of 2019-20 NBA season. The Pelicans a darkhorse playoff contender according to major online sportsbooks have sorely missed the service of Zion Williamson after losing their first three games of their campaign.

Golden State Warriors Betting
It’s too early to decide what will happen to the Warriors this season but it sure is looking like a bridge year for the mighty Dubs who are sorely missing another dynamic shooter in Klay Thompson. In a 120-92 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday Stephen Curry finished with 23 points 8 rebounds and 5 assists in 30 minutes of play. However, none of his teammates scored more than 10 points with All-Star guard D’Angelo Russell ending up with just 6 points after he was ejected in the game.
Players to Watch: Stephen Curry (23.0 PPG 6.0 RPG and 4.5 APG) D’Angelo Russell (13.0 PPG and 5.0 RPG) and Draymond Green (10.5 PPG 4.5 RPG and 2.5 APG)
New Orleans Pelicans Betting
There was a lot of hype surrounding the Pelicans before the season started. Williamson looked like the Chosen One after taking the NBA world by storm in the preseason. But after three regular-season games without Zion, the New Orleans Pelicans are beginning to turn into a disappointing lottery squad. Brandon Ingram though has been outstanding for the Pelicans dropping 22 25 and 35 points. Lonzo Ball has also been solid with 13.7 PPG and 6.7 PPG while Josh Hart is averaging a career-high 18.0 PPG for the 0-3 Pelicans.
Players to Watch: Brandon Ingram (27.3 PPG 9.3 RPG and 4.3 APG) Lonzo Ball (13.0 PPG 5.0 RPG and 6.7 APG) and Josh Hart (18.0 PPG and 7.3 APG)

Golden State Warriors vs New Orleans Pelicans Betting Picks
In a perfect world, the Golden State Warriors should enter Monday’s ballgame as the overwhelming online sports betting favorite over the Pelicans. But just a few months after losing Kevin Durant and Thompson the Dubs have never looked this vulnerable in the last five years. The Pelicans are going to play hard for their first win of the season and it’s up for the Warriors to stop the bleeding.
Moneyline: The Warriors are +125 favorite but these odds are quite generous considering the struggle this team is dealing with.
ATS: Golden State has a 4-5-1 ATS record against New Orleans. They are just -2 favorite to win the match and that really makes sense after back-to-back losses. It’s a wild bet but I have a feeling the Pelicans will add more misery to the Dubs by winning this game by double-digits.
TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is initially set at 235 points. Golden State is averaging 122.00 points per game (Top-5 in the league) in their first two games while New Orleans is scoring 120.33 per contest. Knowing that the Warriors are no longer the defensive juggernaut they were in the previous seasons betting on over is a safe gamble.
Score Prediction: 130-118 Pelicans
