A pretty intriguing matchup awaits this Friday, as the young and exciting Pelicans take on the fundamentally sound and well-coached Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
New Orleans Pelicans
This Pelicans teams is just 4-10 in their last 14 games, but we did see a glimmer of hope from these guys in their last game against the Suns, as they were able to play solid defense and be efficient enough on offense to get the job done.
In 2021 when you mention the Pelicans you will hear about Zion and honestly that is with good reason, as he appears to be living up to the hype averaging 23.7 points per game and playing excellent defense recently.
The Pelicans do have another star in the making, though, with Brandon Ingram also playing at an extremely high level alongside Zion with 23.4 points per game to go along with solid numbers in the peripheral categories. All is not lost for the Pelicans in 2021, however, as they are only 3 games back of first place in their division despite being in last place at this time.
The Pacers have had some unlucky and disappointing injuries this year, but, as well-coached teams usually do, they have been able to battle through adversity to be in striking distance of their division. Domontas Sabonis has been a big part of the success, as he is averaging a double-double with over 20 points per game, and he should be in line to make a big impact in this game as well.
The Pacers are looking to bounce back off of a rough loss against the Milwaukee Bucks, as they lost that game 130-110 mostly due to their 3 point shooting letting them down and this team not being as defensively sounds as they usually are. One of the main guys who needs a solid game off of that loss is Malcolm Brogdan who had a real tough time against the Bucks defense scoring only 12 of his team’s 110 points.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Pacers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points.
- Pacers are 17-8 ATS in their last 25 games after allowing more than 125 points in their previous game.
- Pacers are 21-10-1 ATS in their last 32 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400.
- Pelicans are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Pelicans are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up win.
Free New Orleans Pelicans vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
The Pacers do not represent a good matchup for the Pelicans, as they have so many ways to hurt the Pelicans while I believe Zion may have a tough time against a guy like Myles Turner on the interior who really should be in the running for defensive player of the year in 2021. Sabonis is also looking like a problem for guys to defend, and I think this represents yet another solid matchup so I expect yet another big game out of him here on Friday.
