New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The New Orleans Pelicans is a team that looked to give the Memphis Grizzlies a challenge for the final spot of the NBA Western Conference playoffs but they have slumped by dropping three of their last four games. In their recent 5-point loss against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Jrue Holiday, Brandon Ingram, Zion Willamson and Lonzo Ball combined for 102 of the team’s total of 139 points. But it was their defense that held them back from winning while they also turned the ball over 15 times all throughout the game.

Dallas Mavericks Betting

The Dallas Mavericks are currently in seventh place in the NBA Western Conference playoff picture with a 37-24 record and they only trail the Oklahoma City Thunder by just half a game. For the past ten games, the Mavericks have been staying afloat as they won in six contests. They are coming off a bad loss against the Chicago Bulls where they sorely missed the services of Kristaps Porzingis but being at home to host this game against the Pelicans, this team has a good chance. Ironically, the Mavericks are better playing on the road than at home. Tim Hardaway and Dorian Finney-Smith have been trying to fill up for the loss of Porzingis but they need some more stability on the defensive end.

Players to Watch: L. Doncic SG 48 GP 48 GS 32.9 MIN 28.6 PTS 1.4 OR 8.1 DR 9.4 REB 8.8 AST 1 STL 0.2 BLK 4.3 TO 2.5 PF 2 AST/TO 28.38 PER
