Denver Nuggets are close to securing the top spot in the West, and a win over the New Orleans Pelicans would be a major step towards the same.
Before betting on the Pelicans vs. Nuggets
The New Orleans Pelicans are in one hell of a situation. Right now, they are ninth in the West, one game away from falling out from the play-in zone, and one and a half games behind the spot, which leads directly to the playoffs.
New Orleans five in a row before losing to Golden State at the Chase Center, 120-109. In general, this team looked solid, beating the Clippers and the Blazers on the road before that loss, scoring 131 and 124 points, respectively. Though, six of the past seven events they played ended with under.
The Nuggets are on the rise, with four consecutive victories. They would beat the Nets, the Wizards (on the road) before hosting the Bucks and the 76ers and defeating both of the East powerhouses.
Jokic is doing his thing well and slowly cruising toward his third NBA MVP award. Due to Joel Embiid’s avoidance of appearing at the Ball Arena a few days ago, the Joker’s stocks significantly improved. He is currently near a triple-double average with 24.9 points, 11.9 boards and 9.9 assists.

The hosts are absolute favorites, and our pick here would be Denver to cover a seven-point spread. Yes, the Pels are very solid recently, but they can’t compete with one of the best hosts in the NBA.
