New Orleans Pelicans Betting
With only a small time to wait for the New Orleans Pelicans to see the debut of Zion Willamson this season, it is sweeter since the team is starting to come to its own without the star rookie. Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram are both looking at their best versions of themselves since coming to the NBA. Josh Hart is a solid addition to the team as well by coming off from the bench. This is a team that will be tough to beat, even more with the arrival of Williamson. The team is coming off a tight loss against the Clippers but it is already an achievement for this team to give one of the top teams in the Western Conference that scare.

Memphis Grizzlies Betting
The Memphis Grizzlies are smoking hot as they could have been on a nine-game winning streak if they did not lose to the Sacramento Kings back on January 2. Their last game against Cleveland was tough as they just won by four points but it shows the team’s maturity to close games. In that match, Dillon Brooks stepped up big time to lead the team with 26 points. Rookie Ja Morant had a good game with 16 points and eight assists while Brandon Clarke stepped up from the bench to provide 15 points. Jaren Jackson Jr. was only limited to 10 points but he only played 19 minutes. In the pain, Jonas Valanciunas had 8 points and a huge 18 rebounds for his team. This is a squad that has figured out their roles and that is sweet-sounding music for their coaching staff.
Players to Watch: J. Morant PG 36 GP 36 GS 29.8 MIN 17.9 PTS 0.6 OR 2.9 DR 3.5 REB 7 AST 1.1 STL 0.3 BLK 3.3 TO 1.6 PF 2.1 AST/TO 18.78 PER
