New Orleans Pelicans vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Picks

The Thunder has a 6-4 against the Pelicans in their last 10 head-to-head games. In those games, OKC averaged 114.90 PPG on 46.20% FG while New Orleans scored 113.80 PPG on 48.15%.

Moneyline: The Thunder are -150 favorites on most Las Vegas betting odds, but the Pelicans look poised to pull off an upset, especially if they sustain their hot-shooting on Saturday.

ATS: The Thunder (-3) are 3-2 against the spread this season and 5-5 ATS in the last 10 meetings with the Pelicans. But keep in mind, the Thunder will no longer play with Paul George or Russell Westbrook. The Pelicans no longer have superstar forward Anthony Davis, but talent-wise they are just the superior team on paper.

TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 231 points. New Orleans is averaging 121.20 points per game. OKC is scoring 102.20 points per contest. Knowing that OKC has gone under in four of their first five games this season, it’s very likely that trend will continue given that 231 points are just too much.

Score Prediction: 104-97 Pelicans
