New Orleans Pelicans Betting
The Pelicans lost their last two games but they were against contenders with the Houston Rockets and the latest was against the team that sits on top of the NBA standings, the Milwaukee Bucks by 12 points. Even with Williamson’s hype, this is still Brandon Ingram’s team to lead and the first-time NBA All-Star averages 24.9 points, 6.4 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. Holiday has been the second-leading scorer for the team with 19.7 points along with 6.3 assists while Williamson is solid in the paint with 19.5 points and 8.2 rebounds. Against the Bulls, this team should maximize the brute force of Williamson against a weak front line while guys like JJ Redick will help him space out the floor.

Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls have been struggling after losing three-straight games and all of them are on the road. They have a better chance of winning at home but it is not that much. Expect this team to ride on the production of Zach LaVine who does 24.9 points. He will be supported by his very young teammates with rookie Coby White topping that list. This is another game that they will miss Lauri Markkanen and that just lessens their chances to take this home game from the Pelicans.
Players to Watch: Z. LaVine PG 52 GP 52 GS 34.4 MIN 24.9 PTS 0.7 OR 4.2 DR 4.9 REB 4.1 AST 1.4 STL 0.4 BLK 3.2 TO 2.2 PF 1.3 AST/TO 19.63 PER
