New Orleans Pelicans Vs. Golden State Warriors – NBA Consensus Betting Picks | Betting Odds
A few seasons ago the Pelicans somehow were looking to be like the Warriors; right now they are trying to be .500 to have a chance to get in the NBA playoffs. When they meet on Wednesday, Golden State will be playing on back-to-back nights while New Orleans will be rested. New Orleans is two games below .500, but is on a good streak winning four of their last five games. Their only defeat during that span was against the Timberwolves.
New Orleans Pelicans Vs. Golden State Warriors Predictions
On Monday Night they stole one from Los Angeles, beating the Clippers 121-114 with a stunning performance by Anthony David. The Brow had 46 points and 16 rebounds while the Pelicans covered the spread as a road 2-point underdog. The Pelicans are a good dog team this season. They are not one of the best, but they are good enough to be considered in the right situation. New Orleans has lost the last four straight visits to Oracle Arena but has covered the spread in two of the previous three games in that building. They are usually 9+ point dogs against the Warriors, and that leaves a lot of room to cover.
The Warriors will play on back-to-back nights after taking on the surprising Nuggets in Denver. We know what Golden State is as a team, but they worry me when they play on consecutive nights, especially against physical teams. Denver and New Orleans might not be as talented as the Warriors, but they sure demand a physical game every night. I’m expecting the Pelicans to be rested and ready for this one. I’m thinking the Warriors probably are putting a little more attention to the Nuggets right now than the Pelicans. They should win on Wednesday night, but it will be closer than expected.
What’s the play? Pelicans.
