New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The Pelicans salvaged only their third win of the season, and they did against the title favorites Los Angeles Clippers, 132-127. Jrue Holiday erupted for a season-high 36 points to offset the absence of their key players and spoil the Clippers’ debut of last year’s regular-season MVP runner-up Paul George, who tallied 33 points in 24 minutes. The Pelicans also got a 20-20 game from Derrick Favors and 23 bench points from Frank Jackson.

Players to Watch: Brandon Ingram (25.9 PPG, 7.3 RPG, 3.9 APG), Jrue Holiday (17.0 PPG, 5.2 RPG, 7.2 APG), J.J. Redick (12.7 PPG, 2.0 RPG, 1.5 RPG)

Miami Heat Betting

Once again, the Miami Heat showcased what unselfish basketball is all about in their latest win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Miami, the 6th best passing team in the NBA at 26.4 assists per game, recorded 31 assists en route to a 108-97 win. Rookie guard Kendrick Nunn had another big statistical night with 23 points and 8 assists, while Tyler Herro returned from an ankle injury to score 16 markers.

Players to Watch: Jimmy Butler (18.8 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 6.5 APG), Kendrick Nunn (17.5 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 3.3 APG), Goran Dragic (16.1 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 5.1 APG)

New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat Betting Picks

Online sportsbooks are bullish on the Heat to continue their winning run. Aside from the fact Miami is playing incredibly well in their first 11 games, New Orleans is pretty much banged up with injuries. Brandon Ingram could suit up for Saturday’s ballgame, but the prolonged absence of JJ Redick, Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, and of course, Zion Williamson puts them in a tough spot against the Heat.

Moneyline: The Heat are a perfect 4-0 SU at home with an average winning margin of 18 points.

ATS: Again, the Heat has been super-dominant at American Airlines Arena in the last four home games, and won’t be surprised if this game ends in another blowout.

TOTALs: This game will go UNDER the total, which opened at a high 230 points. The Pelicans and Heat are averaging a combined 229.72 points per game this season. Miami’s defense, though, is allowing opponents to just 104.91 points – 6th best in the league.

Score Prediction: 118-107 Heat
