Toronto Raptors vs Los Angeles Clippers Betting Predictions, Picks, Odds & Lines

Toronto Raptors vs Los Angeles Clippers Betting Predictions, Picks, Odds & Lines

The Los Angeles Clippers will look to get back to winning ways when they host the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night. The Clips have lost three straight games and have dropped to 4th in the West, behind the Nuggets. That bad streak came after losing only once in 12 previous games. They now have a 42-22 record straight up and 36-28-1 against the spread. The Raptors are coming off an important road win against the Lakers. Thanks to that performance on Sunday, they still have some hope of making it to the playoffs. Toronto’s been up and down lately, splitting the last 10 games. Over the season, they’re still well below .500. Their current record is 27-38. Against the spread, the Raptors are 29-36. This will be the first meeting this season between the two teams, with another one scheduled for next week.

Toronto Raptors vs Los Angeles Clippers Betting Odds & Line Movement

The oddsmakers are heavily favoring the Clippers in this one. The current line is -8.5. The total is set at 215.5.

Notes On The Toronto Raptors

This will likely be a season to forget for the Raptors fans. As the season nears its end, their chances for sneaking into the playoffs are getting slimmer. Luckily for them, their schedule will clear up a bit after Tuesday’s game. The Raptors still have some fight left in them as they have shown on Sunday night against the Lakers who featured bot AD and LeBron. Toronto, on the other hand, was without the services of Fred VanVleet and OG Anunoby. However, Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam both delivered fantastic performances. Lowry had his best game of the season, with 37 points and 11 assists. Siakam scored 39 and had 13 rebounds and 4 assists. The game was decided in the 2nd quarter when the Raptors destroyed the Lakers, scoring 40 points and keeping their opponents to 21.

For the Clippers game, the raptors will likely get Anunoby back. VanVleet and Gary Trent Jr. are questionable. Chris Boucher and Paul Watson Jr. remain out.

Notes On The Los Angeles Clippers

The last week was frustrating for the Clippers fans. The LA team lost three straight games against the Western conference opposition, including the matchup vs Denver which may decide the No.3 spot in the West. The Clippers finally had Kawhi Leonard back for that game, but it didn’t help them much. Both Leonard and Paul George were underwhelming scoring 16 and 20 points, respectively. If there’s something the Clips can take from this game, it’s the encouraging performances from Rajon Rondo and Demarcus Cousins. Rondo scored 18 points, while Cousins added 16. The reliable performances from their veterans could be the key for the Clippers late in the season as well as in the playoffs.

The Clippers are still without Patrick Beverley. Serge Ibaka is closing his return, but the Raptors game probably comes too early.

Toronto Raptors vs Los Angeles Clippers Betting Prediction & Pick: Toronto +8.5

The Raptors may not be able to beat the Clippers on the road but should manage to keep the game relatively close. Anunoby’s return will provide a big boost as he’s the best defender they can throw at Leonard and George. The line seems a bit too respectful of the Clippers who lost three straight.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks, Lines, Predictions & Odds

Portland Trail Blazers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Picks, Lines, Predictions & Odds

The Blazers will continue their road trip when they visit the Hawks on Monday night. They fared pretty well so far, winning 4 straight games away from home. This recent streak came just at the right time after previously losing 9 out of 11 games. Now the Blazers are back in contention for a direct playoff spot. Right now, they’re in the three-way tie for the 5th place in the West.

Their season record is at 36-28, exactly the same as the Mavericks and the Lakers. Against the spread, the Blazers are 33-31. The Hawks are also coming off a win beating Chicago on Saturday to snap a 3-game skid. They are tied for fifth in their conference, owning the same record as Miami, at 35-30. However, Boston is only a game behind at 7th. Prior to Saturday, Atlanta failed to cover in three consecutive games. Over the season, they’re 35-29-1 against the spread. This is the second and final game of the season between the two. Back in January, the Blazers won at home, 112-106.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Odds And Line Movement

Atlanta is favored to win, and the line is at -1.5 at most bookies. However, you can find even odds at some sportsbooks. The opened at 236.5 but has dropped a bit since. At the moment, it stands at 234.5.

Notes On The Portland Trail Blazers

The Blazers will be motivated to continue their winning streak and try to secure the direct playoff spot. The next couple of games will be the key, as they’ll close the season with a tough 3-game stretch against Utah, Phoenix, and Denver. Tonight they’re playing on the second night of a back-to-back, after winning at Boston 129-119 last night. The fatigue may be an issue as they used only 3 bench players vs the Celtics. Also, their two best players, Lillard and McCollum played 39 and 37 minutes, respectively. After an even first half at Boston, the Blazers dominated the second 24 minutes and ended up winning by 10 points. McCollum led the scoring with 33 points. Lillard added 26 of his own, plus 13 assists. The trade deadline addition, Norman Powell continued to prove his value with 23 points while shooting an efficient 4-6 from the deep.

The Blazers have pretty much a clean bill of health for tonight. Long-term absentee Zach Collins is the only unavailable player.

Notes On The Atlanta Hawks

Tonight, the Hawks will try to build on their excellent home form. They are 5-0 straight up and ATS in their last 5 games at the State Farm Arena. Trae Young is back after a stint on the sidelines and has scored 32 and 33 points in two games since the return. Having their best player healthy and in the form will be crucial for the Hawks in the season run-in as they look to lock the direct playoff spot. In their last game, vs the Bulls on Saturday, the Hawks managed to win and cover as -8.5 favorites despite coming into the second half with a 9-point deficit. Trae Young led the way with 33 points while shooting a terrific 64.3% from the field. Clint Capela notched another double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds.

Bogdan Bogdanovic and Tony Snell have minor injury issues and both are questionable for tonight. De’Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish remain out.

Portland Trail Blazers vs Atlanta Hawks Betting Pick & Prediction:UNDER 234.5

The total is this high mainly due to the fantastic offensive performances by Portland in their last couple of games. However, their 130ish streak is hardly sustainable, especially on the second night of a back-to-back. Plus, the Hawks have allowed only 109.5 ppg in the last 6 games. The last 7 out of 10 meetings between the two teams have gone UNDER.

Phoenix Suns vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Picks, Lines, Predictions & Odds

Phoenix Suns vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Picks, Lines, Predictions & Odds

The Suns will have a chance to catch up with the Jazz at the top of the West as they visit the Thunder on Sunday night. After three straight wins, Phoenix is only a half-game behind the Jazz. Tonight’s matchup will be the first on their 3-game road trip. Besides, the Suns will play only two of the remaining games at home. Not that it matters much to them, as they’re the best road team in the NBA with a 20-9 record.

Overall, the Suns are 45-18 straight up and 39-23-1 ATS. The Thunder, on the other hand, is in a full tanking mode. They won only once in the last 17 games. At the moment they’re tied with Cleveland for the fifth-worst record in the league. Over the season, OKC is 21-43 straight up and 28-35-1 ATS. Tonight, the two teams will meet for the third and final time this season. They’ve split the series so far, with each team winning once.

Phoenix Suns vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Odds And Line Movement

The Suns are double-digit favorites for this one. The opening odd had the favored at -13.5 but the line has moved even further, to -14.5. The total has also seen movement, rising to 224.5 from the opening 223.

Notes On The Phoenix Suns

The Suns definitely mean business this season. They even have a realistic chance to secure the best record in the league and home advantage throughout the playoffs. Coach Williams and the front office have built a team that excels on both sides of the court. They are scoring 114.3 points per game which ranks them 9th in the league. At the same time, Phoenix allows 108.3 ppg, good enough for 6th in the NBA. The Suns are coming into tonight’s game on a 3-game winning streak against some of the toughest opposition in the league. They’ve beaten the Knicks, the Clippers, and Jazz over the last 5 days. On Friday night, they easily dealt with the league leaders, the Jazz, winning 121-100. The Suns built a 16-points advantage in the 1st quarter and never looked back. Devin Booker led the way with 31 points, while Mikal Bridges scored 18. Chris Paul almost had a double-double with 12 points and 9 assists in only 20 minutes.

For tonight, the Suns are without Jae Crowder and Abdel Nader. Cam Johnson and Cameron Payne are listed as questionable.

Notes On The Phoenix Suns vs Oklahoma City Thunder

The Thunder have stopped even pretending to have a desire to play competitive basketball. Most of the nights they are featuring a lineup that, quality-wise, belongs to the G-League rather than the NBA. However, due to some decent play earlier in the season, they still haven’t secured one of the top picks in the draft. So, we can expect them to do their worst for the rest of the season. Last night, they’ve reached a new low, with the biggest home defeat in the league history. They were beaten by the Pacers 152-95. Moses Brown was the only one that put even a semi-decent performance with 16 points and 7 rebounds.

The best player on the roster, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, remains out and the Thunder will likely keep him on the sidelines for the rest of the season to help their tanking efforts. Al Horford is also shut down for the season. Pokusevski, Dort, and Muscala are questionable.

Phoenix Suns vs Oklahoma City Thunder Betting Pick & Prediction: Phoenix -14.5

These are the two teams are heading in opposite directions. Tonight, everything but the easy win for Phoenix will be a huge surprise. Even if they choose to rest some of the key players, the Suns have more than enough to dominate the Thunder.

Los Angeles Clippers Vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks, Predictions, Odds & Lines

Los Angeles Clippers Vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks, Lines, Predictions & Odds

The Clippers and the Nuggets will square off in a crucial NBA betting game for both teams on Saturday night in Denver. Tonight’s game may easily be a deciding factor for who finishes third in the West. Entering the playoffs from that spot is important as it will likely mean avoiding the Lakers in the first round. After losing two straight games, the Clippers are only half-game ahead of their tonight’s rival. Prior to those two games, the Clips have only lost 3 times in the last 15 outings. Right now, they hold a 43-21 record, going 36-27-1 against the spread.

The Nuggets, on the other hand, are red-hot. They’ve won 4 straight games, 3 of them by double-digits. They are also 12-3 in their last 15 outings. This season, Denver is 42-21 straight up and 30-33 against the spread. This will be the third game between two teams this season. Each team won once, with the road team coming out victorious both times.

Los Angeles Clippers Vs Denver Nuggets Betting Odds & Line Movement

The oddsmakers are favoring the Clipper for this one and the NBA betting line is at -4.5 at the moment. The total is set at 223.5. The lines may change during the day if we get more information on Kawhi Leonard’s availability.

Notes On The Denver Nuggets

Looking at the way they performed lately, one could never guess that the Nuggets are dealing with injuries to several key players. They have even improved on offense since the injury to their second-best player Jamal Murray. Since Murray went down, Denver is averaging 120 points per contest, 5 more than their season average. In their last game, they overcame the Raptors, winning 121-111 on the second night of a back-to-back. It was an all-around team effort with 7 players scoring in double-digits. Michael Porter Jr’ continued with fantastic performances with 23 points and 7 rebounds. Nikola Jokic added 19 points and 11 boards. Denver won despite Toronto being of fire from deep with a 50% 3pt percentage. However, the Nuggets won the battle by outrebounding the Raptors 47-35 and forcing 15 turnovers.

Tonight, the Nuggets continue to play with the depleted backcourt. Murray is out for the season, and Will Barton and Monte Morris are also unavailable.

Notes On The Los Angeles Clippers

While the Nuggets are faring just fine without one of the star players, the Clips have struggled without Kahwi Leonard. Coach Lue has built the offensive juggernaut and the Clippers have the second-best offensive rating in the league with 117.9. However, in the last five games without Kahwi, they averaged only 108 points. In Leonard’s absence, Paul George is playing some of the best basketball of his career. Still, the Clippers dropped two straight games. On Wednesday night, they lost to the Suns and failed to get closer to the No.2 spot on the West. In that game, the Clips were efficient from the floor shooting 51.3% but were outrebounded and had more turnovers. Paul George led the scoring with 25 points and added 10 rebounds and 4 assists. The rest of the starting 5 also scored in double-digits, but the Clippers hardly got any production from the bench.

For tonight, Leonard is a game time decision, while Ibaka and Beverley remain out.

Los Angeles Clippers Vs Denver Nuggets Betting Pick & Prediction: Denver +4

The Nuggets are on a roll lately and the Jokic-MPJ duo seems unstoppable. Kahwi might play, but without Ibaka, the Clips don’t have enough under the rim to deal with Jokic. We expect a tight NBA betting game going down to the wire and this spread just seems too big.

Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Sacramento Kings Betting Picks, Lines, Predictions & Odds

Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Sacramento Kings Betting Picks, Lines, Predictions & Odds

The Lakers will look to improve on their recent NBA betting form when they host the Kings on Friday night. With Dallas breathing down their neck, the defending champs suddenly find their 5th spot in the West in danger. Despite the return of Anthony Davis, the Lakers have been in a slump recently winning only once in their last 5 games. If they continue the bad form that may even fall out of the top 6 as the Blazers are only 2 games behind in the loss column. They’re also 0-4-1 ATS in that stretch. Over the season, they’re 36-26 straight up and 28-33-1 against the spread. For Sacramento, on the other hand, the playoff hopes are long gone.

However, they’ve been decent lately, winning 3 out of their last 6 games. It’s a welcomed improvement after losing 9 straight. At the moment they hold a 25-37 overall record, going 24-34-1 against the spread. This will be the third game this season between the LA Lakers and the Kings. They split the previous two matchups, with each team winning at home.

Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Sacramento Kings Betting Odds & Line Movement

The Lakers are, as expected, huge NBA betting favorites for this one. The line stands at -9 after dropping a little from the opening -9.5. The total also saw some slight movement, dropping from 224.5 to 223.5.

Notes On The Sacramento Kings

After putting together a nice little 3-2 stretch of games, Sacramento was brought down to earth by Utah on Wednesday night. The Jazz completely embarrassed the Kings at home winning by almost 50, 154-105. That humiliation should serve the Kings as motivation against the Lakers as they’ll look to redeem themselves and bounce back after the tough loss. The Utah game was the third in a row for Sacramento without their best player De’Aaron Fox. The explosive guard is sidelined due to health protocols. In his absence, Buddy Hield and Richaun Holmes led the scoring with 18 points each. Justin James added 16 from the bench.

Fox continues to sit, while Barnes and Bagley III are questionable.

Notes On The Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers finally have Anthony Davis back, but his return coincided with the dip in form. Of course, AD is still not at 100% and we can expect improvement as the season moves on. Still, he had his best game since the return in a Wednesday loss to Washington. Davis scored 26 and added 5 rebounds and two assists. He was also very active on the defensive end with 3 steals and 2 blocks. His frontcourt partner, Andre Drummond continued with solid performances with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Four other players also scored in double digits.

The Lakers are still without Lebron, with no return timeline yet. Alex Caruso missed the Washington game with back spasms and is questionable for tonight. Jared Dudley is the only other absentee.

Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Sacramento Kings Betting Pick & Prediction: Lakers -9

The NBA betting game against Sacramento is a perfect opportunity for the Lakers to get back to winning ways. The Kings are the worst defensive team in the league and are without their best player. We expect the Lakers to cover and finally break their bad ATS streak.

Toronto Raptors vs Denver Nuggets Betting Predictions, Odds, Picks & Line Movement

Toronto Raptors vs Denver Nuggets Betting Predictions, Odds, Picks & Line Movement

On Thursday night, the Golden Nuggets will host the Toronto Raptors as they continue to put NBA betting pressure on the Clippers for the No.3 spot on the West. Denver lost only 3 times in the last 18 games and is now caught up with the Clips in the loss column. However, they have a very tough remaining basketball wagering schedule. At the moment, they hold a 41-21 straight-up record.

Still, they struggled to cover this season, going 29-33 ATS. In the last 6 games, they covered only once. The Raptors are currently outside of the playoff picture and have only slim chances of getting in. They were solid lately, winning 5 out of the last 7 games. Still, they lost two times in the last 3 games and are now 2 games behind Washington. This season, Toronto is 26-36 straight up and 27-35 ATS. This will be the second and final game between the two in this campaign. The Raptors won the first game a month ago, 135-111.

Toronto Raptors vs Denver Nuggets Betting Odds & Line Movement

The Nuggets opened as -6 home NBA betting favorites. After a tough game last night vs the Pelicans, the basketball wagering line has dropped a bit, to -4 at the best US Sportsbooks. The total is set at 224.5

Interesting Article: Popular 2021 NFL Draft Prop Bets And Major Betting Odds Moves

Notes On The Toronto Raptors

This weird season has probably hit the Raptors hardest of all the teams in the league. They’ve been forced to play home games in Tampa and their key players have missed a ton of games due to the health and safety protocols. With all these issues, they struggled to find their groove this whole season and will likely miss the playoffs. Plus, losing Ibaka and Gasol in the offseason really hurt them. As soon as they got a half-decent center in Kem Birch, they’ve shown a significant improvement.

Overall they haven’t been that bad, ranking 18th in offensive and 14th in defensive rating. However, they lost a lot of close games. Their key players, particularly Pascal Siakam, again and again, failed to perform in clutch situations. In their last game, the Toronto Raptors kept up with Brooklyn for 3 quarters but collapsed in the last 12 minutes.

 

They lost the final period by 16. They had 6 players in double digits, with Lowry and Anunoby leading the way scoring 24 and 21 points respectively. Birch had another double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds.

The list of unavailable players for tonight includes Trent Jr., Boucher, and Watson Jr.

Notes On The Denver Nuggets

Despite the grim predictions, The Denver Nuggets has fared pretty well without Jamal Murray. They’ve won 7 out of 8 games without their second-best player. In addition, their guard rotation is in shambles the last couple of games with Morris and Barton also out. But, Nikola Jokic continues to dominate and Michael Porter Jr. is showing a real star potential. Last night against the Pelicans, Jokic posted a 32-7-8 line. MPJ scored 28 points and added 8 rebounds.

 

The undersized Argentinian guard, Facundo Campazzo also played a significant role. He scored 19, dished out 10 assists, and added 6 rebounds. Still, the Nuggets barely survived in the final seconds, winning thanks to the clutch Jokic block on Zion.

Tonight, Denver will again play without Murray, Barton, and Morris.

Toronto Raptors vs Denver Nuggets Betting Prediction & Pick: Denver -4

The Golden Nuggets are on the second night of a back-to-back NBA betting action, but the Toronto Raptors are also playing their third game in four days. Toronto has improved lately, especially on defense, but Jokic and MPJ just seem unstoppable at the moment. The Nuggets have an insanely tough basketball wagering schedule coming up and will be very motivated to put this one in the bag.

NFL Draft infographic

Top 3 Most Bet

1. Over 4.5 wide receivers in Round 1
2. Under 6.5 pick for Trey Lance
3. Under 45.5. pick for Eric Stokes

Notable Line Movements:

– First defensive player picked: Jaycee Horn went from +400 to +175
– 3rd overall pick: Trey Lance went from +1400 to +250
– 3rd overall pick: Matt Jones went from +1000 to -210

The most popular and the most talked-about props are at which position will a certain player be picked. The No. 1 pick has been a foregone conclusion for quite some time. The consensus among all NFL experts is that the Jaguars will select Trevor Lawrence with the first pick. But, from there, the things get really interesting. With the constant influx of new information, rumors, and potential trades, online bookies like SportsBetting.ag have adjusted odds often and quickly.

NFL Draft infographic
The No. 3 pick is particularly interesting. Back in February, it was all but certain that one of the WR prospects will go third.

At that time the NFL Draft betting odds for the third pick looked like this:

  • WR Ja’Mar Chase +275
  • WR Devonta Smith +275
  • QB Zac Wilson +700
  • QB Justin Fields +800
  • QB Trey Lance +1200
  • QB Mac Jones Off the Board

NFL Draft infographic

You’ll notice that Mac Jones wasn’t even on the board. In March the board looked similar, but the odds moved a bit.

  • WR Ja’Mar Chase +400
  • WR Devonta Smith +400
  • QB Zac Wilson +1000
  • QB Justin Fields +190
  • QB Trey Lance +1500
  • QB Mac Jones Off the Board

But, on March 26th, the 49ers made things interesting by trading up to the No.3 spot. Their clear intention to draft a quarterback drastically changed the odds for the two WRs and sprung the QB prospects to the top of the board.

NFL Draft infographic

On April 1st, NFL Draft Betting odds looked like this:

  • WR Ja’Mar Chase +5000
  • WR Devonta Smith +20000
  • QB Zac Wilson +1200
  • QB Justin Fields +150
  • QB Trey Lance +160
  • QB Mac Jones +160

 

Zac Wilson is still likely to be selected second, going to the Jets and leaving the 49ers to select between Fields, Lance, and Jones. The latest reports have San Francisco likely taking Lance or Jones, causing odds on Fields to drop to +600.

The latest odds at BetOnline even have Fields off the board with Lance at +180 and Jones now the favorite at -225. Of course, all the available info may just be a smokescreen from the 49ers, so be on the lookout throughout the draft day. However, the 3rd pick remains the most popular bet going into the draft.

2021 Stanley Cup Final Exact Matchup Betting Odds Picks & Predictions

The NHL regular season, unlike any we’ve seen before, is coming to a close. The travel restrictions imposed due to the Covid-19 pandemic have forced the league to adapt and change its usual setup. So, instead of a classic regular season schedule, we got only intradivisional play in four temporarily created divisions. In addition, the length of this campaign was shortened to only 56 games. Some teams fared better in this strange setup, while others thrived. With the playoffs starting on May 11, the oddsmakers see the Colorado Avalanche as the No.1 favorites. They’re followed by Tampa Bay, Toronto, Vegas, and Carolina.

Getting both final teams right is tricky, but the potential profit might make it worthwhile.

New Playoff Betting Setup

The altered regular season setup will also result in the new-look playoffs. The four best teams in each division will earn the ticket to the postseason. This year, there will be no wild card entries. Round 1 and Round 2 will be played within the division. The first round will feature 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 matchups. The winners will proceed to the second round and decide the divisional champion between themselves.

The four division winners go to the playoff semifinals where they’ll be seeded based on the regular-season record. This way, we’ll get a 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 semifinals bracket. The winners of these matchups will decide the champion in the Stanley Cup Final.

Unique Finals Betting Matchups

As there’s no classic East and West setup this season, we may easily have a finals matchups we’ve never seen before. It will certainly add a new layer of excitement to the playoffs. Also, this situation may create some interesting matchups you can bet on. We may have a chance to see some old rivalries on the biggest stage for the first time ever. For example, Boston and Toronto have a long and storied rivalry with the Bruins usually getting the better of the Buds. However, all of these matchups, at least in the last 80 years, have taken place before the Finals. This year, there’s a chance we may see these two teams in the Stanley Cup Final. The odds of that happening are at +2,500.

This and several other potential first-ever finals duels are what makes final matchups betting so exciting this year. Make sure to check out the full odds list as there’s plenty of value to be found.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks, Odds, Lines & Predictions

New Orleans Pelicans vs Denver Nuggets Betting Picks, Odds, Lines & Predictions

On Wednesday night, the Pelicans will travel to Denver for their final NBA betting game of the season series against the Nuggets. New Orleans is currently 11th in the West, with a 27-34 overall record. That puts them three games behind Golden State for the last play-in spot. Their postseason chances are extremely slim now. Losing 5 in their last 7 games certainly didn’t help their case. However, the Pelicans are coming off a solid win against the Clippers and will look to surprise another West contender. Their win also helped the Nuggets, who are now only one 1 game behind the Clips for the third spot in the conference. They did pretty well lately, winning 6 times in the last 7 outings. Over the season, they’re 40-21 straight up and 29-32 against the spread. This is the third and final matchup between the two this season. They split the first two games with mirroring scorelines, 113-108.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Denver Nuggets Betting Odds & Line Movement

The opening online NBA betting odds favored the Nuggets by -5. With some early money going the underdog’s way, the line has moved a bit. At the moment, it stands at -4. Most online sportsbooks have set the total at 228.5.

Notes On The New Orleans Pelicans

The inconsistent play throughout the season will likely cost the New Orleans Pelicans their postseason spot. They do have a favorable schedule in the remaining games but it’s hard to see them catching up with the Warriors. Still, three of those games are against the Dubs, so the Pels still have a glimmer of hope. The defensive woes have followed this team through the campaign. Stan Van Gundy was brought in to sort things out on that end, but they still rank 5th from the bottom in defensive rating. On the other side of the court, they fared much better. Zion is a force and has led his team to the 5th in offensive rating. Last time out, New Orleans notched a convincing win against Kahwi-less Clippers. Six players scored in double digits, led by Zion Williamson with 23 points.

Josh Hart and Nickeil Alexander-Walker remain out for tonight’s game. Steven Adams and James Johnson are listed as questionable.

Notes On The Denver Nuggets

After a season-ending injury to Jamal Murray, the problems keep piling on for the Denver Nuggets. At the moment, they’re playing with a depleted backcourt as Morris and Barton are also out. However, led by MVP*front-runner Nikola Jokic and surging Michael Porter Jr., they still managed to stay alive in the hunt for the 3rd spot in the West. Getting to 3rd would probably mean avoiding the Lakers in the first round. Two days ago, they easily dealt with the Grizzlies, mainly thanks to the excellent play of their frontcourt. MPJ scored 31, Jokic had an efficient 24 on 50% from the field plus 15 rebounds, while Gordon added 15 points.

With Murray, Morris, and Barton still out, the Nuggets will probably again start Campazzo and Dozier at the guard spots.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Denver Nuggets Betting Pick, & Prediction:Denver -4

The Pelicans are one of the league’s worst road teams and we don’t see it changing tonight. They don’t have the weapons to exploit Denver’s perimeter issues. Plus, the likely absence of Steven Adams will make things easier for Nikola Jokic. The Serbian center averages 33 points in the two previous matchups.
