Orlando Magic Betting

The Orlando Magic has chosen to rebuild from scratch and only Terrence Ross has been the best player retained from previous years. This team is looking to break in Jalen Suggs who is expected to man the shooting guard position. Markelle Fultz was about to break out since being picked as a top overall pick but got injured mid-season. He should have a chip on his shoulder and will look to prove things that he is not a bust. Wendell Carter Jr. is going to be the anchor inside the paint and expect him to gather a lot of double-doubles for the entire season along with Chuma Okeke.

New Orleans Pelicans Betting

The New Orleans Pelicans had a very underwhelming season despite having great talent in the roster. Zion Williamson is going to be in his third year in the league and the Pelicans should do their best to keep the promising superstar. Brandon Ingram is signed long-term and has embraced the leadership role for this team. Devonte Graham and Nikheol Alexander-Walker showed a lot of improvement late last season and they are expected to get starter minutes. Jonas Valanciunas will be the team’s starting center after getting traded from the Memphis Grizzlies for Steven Adams.

Players to Watch: Z. Williamson PF 61 GP 61 GS 33.2 MIN 27 PTS 2.7 OR 4.5 DR 7.2 REB 3.7 AST 0.9 STL 0.6 BLK 2.7 TO 2.2 PF 1.4 AST/TO 27.17 PER
