New Orleans Pelicans
The Pelicans got too high in the first half and are slowly returning to where they started. The team lost six straight games and won only four last 15 meetings. New Orleans is still fourth in the conference standings with a 26-23 balance but could very well drop out of the playoffs zone.
In their most recent game, the Pelicans lost home to Minnesota (102:111).
While the Pelicans have a bad stretch, the Wizards have picked up the pace. The team is coming into this game with four straight victories. Washington has taken turns against New York (116:105), Orlando (138:118), Dallas (127:126), and Houston (108:103). Including Bradley Beal's return to the floor, Washington has improved and is already tied for the lead in the East with playoff-closing Chicago.
Expert Betting Tips
New Orleans has been in the terrible shape of late, and it's unlikely that Brandon Wingham's return from injury, who has yet to regain his form, will help the team. Washington is on a roll and has already won four straight. That's why it's surprising that the Pelicans are the clear favorite in the upcoming game. The Wizards, it seems, are capable of putting up a good fight and beating even this New Orleans team.
