New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors – NBA Betting Tips
- Updated: 4th May 2018
New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors – NBA : Starting off by the Pelicans, they finished the regular season with a 48-34 record
which gave them the 6th place of the Western Conference.
This is a team that managed to win big in terms of “trades”. With the incredible strength that the Western Conference has (they were already the best,
but they became even stronger), there were teams that improved massively and this team from New Orleans was one of those examples.
They ended up signing DeMarcus Cousins and his duo alongside Anthony Davis was what made them scary, and also the help of other players, with the highlight going to Holiday, Mirotic and even Rajon Rondo.
Unfortunately, Cousins, for many the best center in the NBA, got injured on the Achilles tendon, which ended his season and put him out of the play-offs.
Anyway, this is game 3 and despite the team being at a disadvantage by 2-0, they have a good chance to “show what they’re worth”.
The Golden State Warriors have ended the regular season with a 58-24 record and in 2nd place.
This year, the competition is much stronger, and I would say that it is super hard to win the West, especially because the Rockets are filled with talent and have already dominated these Warriors,
besides the fact that the injuries have made them lose a lot of games on the regular season and lose the home advantage.
In any way, they have a huge balance, filled with quality players and athletes that can cover and responsible for all the tasks on court, with a lot of offensive ability and only the injuries have been stopping them from showing that.
Right now, Curry, that is also a great player, has already returned and the team is playing incredible basketball. Even on their last game, they’ve shown they’re very focused offensively on important situations and they have been shooting well,
both from the field and from 3-pts range. Besides that, Kevin Durant has been playing really well, with the help of the contribution of the usual suspects (Thompson, Green, Igoudala, etc.).
New Orleans Pelicans vs Golden State Warriors – Betting Tip and Prediction:
These are 2 highly offensive teams and that play at a very high pace.
It’s true that the “Over” line is quite high but that was already expected, and I really believe it will be surpassed, since I expect this will be a super-fast game with a lot shots and points.
The truth is that the last game had 237 points and the teams didn’t even shoot that well from the field.
With that, the Over is my bet here, despite also fancying the handicap in favour of the Pelicans.
