New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Thanks to the Mavericks loss last night, the New Orleans Pelicans are now sole owners of the 6th seed in the West. But, in order for that to remain a fact after tonight, they’ll need to beat a familiar foe. The Warriors lead the regular season series 1-0 after a comfortable 130-102 win back in late October, a lot has changed since then. Despite injuries and players going in and out of the line-up, the Pelicans have had a steady season so far. Zion Williamson and Jose Alvarado are both game-time decisions here, not having Williamson would be a major blow as he tends to play his best against teams like the Warriors. The Pels head into tonight’s game riding a 6-game road win streak, they’re also 5-1 SU in their last 6 overall.

Stephen Curry and co. just can’t seem to catch a break this season when it comes to injuries. In Friday’s win over Detroit they lost their point-guard Chris Paul to a broken hand which will keep him out for a couple of months. He joins Gary Payton II on the sidelines and with the halfway mark of the season coming up, people are wondering will the Dubs even make the play-in tournament. It’s not all bad news though, Draymond Green has been cleared to play after serving his suspension, he continues to ramp up his work and is expected back in the coming days. The Warriors have had a ton of success in home games vs the Pelicans, they’ve won 10 of the last 11 meetings at Chase Center. However, with just 2 wins in 7 games overall, it’s pretty clear that the more in-form team are the visitors here.

New Orleans Pelicans Moneyline

Pelicans MoneyLine is priced at -112 odds at time of publishing.

The only reason why Golden State won the first meeting of the season is because Curry exploded for 42 points. With him being somewhat out of sorts lately, I think New Orleans is capable of holding him to a reasonable amount here. With the way the Pels have performed on the road lately I think a road win is the likely outcome in this game.

Pelicans vs Warriors Total Points: Under 233

Under 233 Total Points is available at -110 odds at time of publishing.

We’re seeing a projected total of 233 points for tonight’s game, which is very optimistic considering we have seen these two teams surpass that number only once in the last 8 meetings. The visitors have trended towards the under quite a lot lately with 4 of their last 6 games cashing on that bet, they’re actually dead last in the NBA in pace over the last 10 games averaging just 95.8 possessions per game. The Warriors have also tried slowing things down lately averaging 98.7 possessions per game in their last 10 games, and with Chris Paul out of the line-up their playmaking will take a hit here. It’s also worth mentioning that New Orleans is the most efficient team defensively in the last 10 games played, so unless Curry goes for 40+ points here I think we’ll see the visitors win this game on the defensive end. Expect a lot of defense to be played here and because of this I would recommend backing the under.
