New Orleans Pelicans vs Los Angeles Lakers 2/25/2020 Betting Odds
New Orleans Pelicans Betting
The New Orleans Pelicans have won their last two games and if it was not for the loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder, this team could have been on a six-game winning streak. They are now in 10th place in the NBA Western Conference playoff picture but they are on a roll as compared to the teams above them who are the Portland Trail Blazers and Memphis Grizzlies. The tandem of Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson looks lethal and will be a problem for most teams in the future. Along with Jrue Holiday manning the point and JJ Reddick as their kick out shooter, this team is set to make a good run to get that last spot of the NBA Playoffs in the Western Conference.

Los Angeles Lakers Betting
The Los Angeles Lakers are on a roll winning five straight games and this team seems to be picking up and looking like a team on a mission after the passing of Kobe Bryant. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are both averaging above 25 points per game and formed one of the most lethal pick-and-roll in the history of the league. James continues to break barriers as he leads the league in assists right now. With no more distractions on the potential trades on Kyle Kuzma, this team looks to finish the season strong.
