New Orleans Pelicans Betting

After getting their three-game winning streak snapped by Oklahoma City Thunder before the NBA All-Star Weekend, they started off by beating the Portland Trail Blazers by 13 points as this team goes for the home stretch for the playoffs. They are still far behind the Memphis Grizzlies but their confidence is high with the emergence of Zion Williamson who does 22.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. Brandon Ingram got his confidence solidified after getting the NBA All-Star nod and Jrue Holiday is healthy once again.

Golden State Warriors Betting

Good news for the Golden State Warriors – Steph Curry is cleared to play contact basketball. Bad news, there isn’t any timeline for his return yet and this team is stuck with Andrew Wiggins leading them in scoring. The Warriors are bottom-dwelling in the NBA Western Conference with a record of 12-44 and at home, they only won seven out of 20 games. They are now on a five-game skid and Wiggins is just getting acquainted with Steve Kerr’s offense. Draymond Green is still the leader for this team and he has been underwhelming with 8.2 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game.
