New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The New Orleans Pelicans were rolling but they bumped a brick wall when they faced the Los Angeles Lakers on the road. Brandon Ingram finished that match with 22 points but he shot 10-of-27 from the field. Lonzo Ball is picking up his game as he led the team in scoring with 23 points and five assists. Derrick Favors is doing well in the paint as he did 15 points and 14 rebounds. The Lakers just outgunned the Pelicans and it is a good brush up game leading to this game against the Kings.

Richaun Holmes is having a good season so far and in this game, he had 18 points and seven rebounds. Harrison Barnes and Bogdan Bogdanovic had 17 and 16 points respectively.
