New Orleans Pelicans Betting
The New Orleans Pelicans are coming off from a bounce-back victory against the Chicago Bulls by six points. They lost two consecutive games against two powerhouse teams in Houston Rockets and Milwaukee Bucks. In these games, Zion Willamson has established his presence and he has indeed proven that the Pelicans are his team. Since his debut, the rookie had 19.6 points, 8 rebounds and 2.1 assists. In this game, they will be missing Brandon Ingram and it is time for JJ Redick to have a bigger production. Jrue Holiday is the team’s floor leader and he has helped the team in scoring with 19.4 points while doing 6.3 assists.

Indiana Pacers Betting
The return of Victor Oladipo was not expected to be like this as the team suffered a four-game skid and it could have been five points if not for the overtime win over the Chicago Bulls. Domantas Sabonis has been leading the team and he will be representing the Pacers in the upcoming NBA All-Star game. TJ Warren has given this team quality production and Malcolm Brogdon controls the floor well. But it seems that this team has a hard time winning in the clutch and it is where they could use Oladipo. In this game, the former NBA All-Star is going to be resting and it shouldn’t take long for him to return.
Players to Watch: D. Sabonis PF 48 GP 48 GS 34.5 MIN 18.3 PTS 3.2 OR 9.4 DR 12.6 REB 4.7 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 2.8 TO 3.3 PF 1.7 AST/TO 20.87 PER
