New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The New Orleans Pelicans are still in the mix for a play-in tournament spot but will test the waters if it is possible to reach the Golden State Warriors. The gap between them is four games and the next two or three matches will determine their chances. But with the way Stephen Curry has been playing, a big collapse by the Warriors is quite unlikely. Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram should enjoy playing their last games and look to polish their chemistry before getting shut down by the management. There is a good upside for the team but some moves should be made.

Players to watch: Z. Williamson PF 56 GP 56 GS 32.9 MIN 26.9 PTS 2.6 OR 4.6 DR 7.2 REB 3.6 AST 0.9 STL 0.6 BLK 2.6 TO 2.3 PF 1.4 AST/TO 27.72 PER

B. Ingram SF 56 GP 56 GS 34.4 MIN 24.2 PTS 0.6 OR 4.4 DR 5 REB 4.9 AST 0.7 STL 0.6 BLK 2.5 TO 2 PF 2 AST/TO 20.04 PER

L. Ball PG 47 GP 47 GS 31.3 MIN 14.1 PTS 0.5 OR 3.7 DR 4.2 REB 5.7 AST 1.4 STL 0.6 BLK 2.1 TO 1.9 PF 2.7 AST/TO 15.34 PER.

Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Oklahoma City Thunder have long thrown the towel already and they are the third-worst team in the NBA Western Conference already. There is not much to expect from this team since they already shut down Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Al Horford for the rest of the season. The young talents have a chance to showcase what they can do. Lou Dort and Darius Bazley have shown that they have a good upside but a few other players are proving their worth as well. This team has a lot of draft picks in the next five years and expect them to do their homework early to tweak the roster.

Players to Watch: S. Gilgeous-Alexander SG 35 GP 35 GS 33.7 MIN 23.7 PTS 0.5 OR 4.2 DR 4.7 REB 5.9 AST 0.8 STL 0.7 BLK 3 TO 2 PF 2 AST/TO 21.94 PER

L. Dort SF 47 GP 47 GS 29.8 MIN 14.2 PTS 0.7 OR 3 DR 3.7 REB 1.6 AST 0.9 STL 0.4 BLK 1.5 TO 2.6 PF 1.1 AST/TO 11.09 PER

A. Horford C 28 GP 28 GS 27.9 MIN 14.2 PTS 1 OR 5.7 DR 6.7 REB 3.4 AST 0.9 STL 0.9 BLK 1 TO 1.7 PF 3.2 AST/TO 17.69 PER.
