New Orleans Pelicans Betting
The New Orleans Pelicans have been pushing themselves to get to a good playoff spot in the NBA Western Conference. They are still far from getting there as their momentum from their back-to-back games were halted by the mighty Milwaukee Bucks during their most recent game. The loss was just by four points but it is a moral victory for the Pelicans to keep it close with a title contender. Zion Williamson manned up and got 34 points, eight rebounds and six assists while matching up with “The Greek Freak”. Mt. Zion is also heading to his first NBA All-Star Game in his very young career.
