New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The New Orleans Pelicans have been getting good games from Lonzo Ball who has begun to live up to his high draft stock years ago. He came along with Brandon Ingram in a trade for Anthony Davis. Like Ball, Ingram is also leveling up his game and has risen well to be one of the top scorers in the NBA. JJ Redick is expected to help spread the floor for this team against Detroit while Derrick Favors have played well into the starting center of the Pelicans. But both Redick and Favors are expected to be out in this game and they have to dig deeper to their roster for support. They still wait for the arrival of Zion Willamson, who is expected to play very soon but for now, the Pelicans are polishing their other guns.

Detroit Pistons Betting

Derrick Rose has been the best story for the Pistons so far and his numbers have risen silently to MVP numbers again. Looking very solid inside is Andre Drummond as always and against the Pelicans, he should not have trouble grabbing all those rebounds on a weaker frontcourt. But the big question has been the supporting cast. Blake Griffin has been contemplating to end the season with surgery but Sekou “Dr. Doom” Doumbouya has been great for the team and the rookie is showing signs that he will have a bright future in the NBA. The Pistons are stuck in between but they have some positives to look at to this season and they are entering this game still without Blake Griffin, Luke Kennard and Reggie Jackson – all of which are starters.

Players to Watch: A. Drummond C 37 GP 36 GS 34.2 MIN 17.8 PTS 4.5 OR 11.6 DR 16.2 REB 2.6 AST 1.9 STL 1.8 BLK 3.5 TO 3.7 PF 0.7 AST/TO 22.28 PER
