Oklahoma City Thunder Vs. New Orleans Pelicans – NBA Consensus Betting Picks | Betting Odds
Having the Oklahoma City Thunder and the New Orleans Pelicans matchup in the last game before the NBA All-Star game is a great send off to a fun weekend. Having this game on Valentines’ Day is suited for the Pelicans fans and Anthony Davis to make up once and for all. When Anthony Davis requested a trade out of New Orleans, I don’t think he knew the Pelicans fans would lash out against him. He probably figured he would be out of town in a week or so. Now he has to play for a team that didn’t want to trade him to his wishful destination and for fans that don’t cheer for him anymore. That looks like a bad scenario.
Oklahoma City Thunder Vs. New Orleans Pelicans Predictions
Orlando destroyed them 118-88 in their last outing. The Pelicans were 4.5-point favorites and ended up being hammered by 30 points. Anthony Davis went 1-9 from the floor and had only three points in 24 minutes. “We sucked,” Davis said. “Nobody was interested in playing, is what it looked like.” It’s hard to put money on a team that looks like it has been broken since the Davis’ trade request. Now, putting the trust back together to make a winning run seems like an impossible mission.
The Thunder, on the other side, doesn’t have any drama going their way. Instead, they are on a winning streak that could be interesting in the second part of the season. OKC has won 11 of their last 12 games, and they are in a position to fight for the top of the Western Conference. Oklahoma City is four games away from Golden State who is the leader in the West, and one game below the Denver Nuggets in the fight for the second seed. The Thunder has also been covering the spread seven of their last eight games, including their last four in a row.
On Monday they hosted Portland and covered as 4.5-point favorites by winning 120-111. Paul George is particularly having a fantastic season. George is coming off 45 and 47 points performances against the Rockets and the Blazers. He’s on an MVP worthy type of level.
What’s the play? The Thunder.
