New Orleans Pelicans vs Utah Jazz 1/21/2021 Betting Odds
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
