New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The New Orleans Pelicans have been struggling and won just once in their last seven games. They now find themselves on a record below .500 at 5-8 and things have to change in order for Stan Van Gundy to implement his vision with the team. Zion Williamson has been putting up 22.6 points and 8.3 rebounds a game but he was criticized by Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone that he should be logging in 40 minutes a game as compared to his usual 32 a game. Brandon Ingram is arguably the best player on the squad and he is surrounded by great players. Chemistry has to kick in soon or this season is another missed playoff chance.

Players to watch: B. Ingram SF 12 GP 12 GS 35 MIN 23.3 PTS 0.9 OR 5.4 DR 6.3 REB 5.1 AST 0.8 STL 0.9 BLK 3.1 TO 1.3 PF 1.6 AST/TO 20.65 PER

Utah Jazz Betting

The Utah Jazz has now become a force to reckon with in the NBA as their chemistry is starting to kick in after a rough start. This team is now 10-4 and is just a win away to tie the Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers as the best teams in the NBA right now. The Jazz is entering this game on a six-game winning streak and their latest match was with the New Orleans Pelicans as well beating them by 16 points, 118-102. Donovan Mitchell has been fantastic and the supporting cast has been clicking all the way to the leading candidate for this year’s sixth man awardee Jordan Clarkson.

Players to Watch: D. Mitchell SG 13 GP 13 GS 33.5 MIN 23.2 PTS 0.8 OR 2.6 DR 3.5 REB 5 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 3.1 TO 1.8 PF 1.6 AST/TO 17.46 PER
