New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The New Orleans Pelicans are still in the race to secure the final play-in tournament spot but another loss will eliminate them. Aside from this game against the Dallas Mavericks, they still have to take wins over the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers while hoping the San Antonio Spurs have a drastic fall. They have to do that without two of their best players in Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. This team will also not have Steven Adams and Josh Hart which just hurt their chances even further. The Pelicans just won one in their last three games heading to this matchup.
