New Orleans Pelicans vs Orlando Magic: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

The recent run of the New Orleans Pelicans hasn’t gone unnoticed. They’re 7-1 SU over their last 8 games and have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5. Zion Williamson’s name is finally in the media, but for good reasons. Since the in-season tournament he has noticeable slimmed down and is finally looking like the number one draft pick the Pelicans have been waiting for. All this makes the Pels a threat in the loaded West, they’re just 1 game behind the 4th seeded Clippers with 14 games left. Tonight’s match-ups against Orlando won’t be an easy one, the Magic have had the Pels’ number in the last 10 meetings going 2-8 ATS/SU. But, with a relatively clean slate regarding injuries and their solid run of form, the Pelicans are favorites for a reason here.

Some might say that the Orlando Magic are the New Orleans Pelicans of the Eastern Conference. They’re 5th in the standings, currently on a 4-game win streak and a run 9-2 SU/ATS run in their last 11 games. This team has been tough to beat, particularly at home where they are 24-9 SU/ATS this season. They’ve also covered the spread in 7 of their last 8 games there, making that one of the most consistent bets this season. Despite all these numbers, I am still a bit skeptical when it comes to this team. Mainly because of their strength of schedule. During this 9-2 SU run all of their wins came against sub .500 teams, while the two losses were against the Knicks and Pacers, both by double digits. This is concerning if you’re a Orlando fan, come playoff time there are no ”weak” opponents against whom you can pile up wins.

Pelicans -2.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

I’m taking New Orleans here. Zion Williamson is on a mission and just like any other team in the NBA, I don’t think the Magic will have an answer for him on the inside. The Pels are 5-1 SU in their last 6 vs East teams, back them with confidence to cover.

Pelicans vs Magic Total Points Prediction: Over 208.5

Over 208.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Defense has been a staple for both of these teams over the past 10 games – they’re the 2nd and 3rd best defenses in the league efficiency wise. The one thing that separates them is pace of play, the Pelicans average almost 2 more possessions per game during his stretch, which puts them 10 places above the Magic in this category. Orlando has held its last 2 opponents to under 100 points, however that will be difficult do to against the Pelicans who are one of the elite offenses in the NBA compared to the likes of Charlotte and Toronto. New Orleans is averaging 119 points per 100 possessions in the last 10 games, only the Lakers and Celtics have a more efficient number during that stretch. Head-to-head meetings, particularly at the Kia Center, have been profitable on the over with 4 of the last 5 games cashing on that bet. These two teams have also averaged 224.1 points per game in the last 10 meetings overall, so despite the drop in pace I still believe we are in for a high scoring game here. Back the over.
