New Orleans Pelicans vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Betting Lines & Free Pick

 

  • On Sunday, the Lakers extended their winning streak to five games by edging the Boston Celtics 114-112 in Los Angeles. Zion Williamson lifted the Pelicans to a win with 28 points on 13-of-20 shooting while grabbing seven rebounds in a 115-101 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.
  • Though the Lakers are an 8-point favorite in the NBA betting lines, Zion Williamson has been unstoppable. Can the rookie put a dent on the Lakers' record?

  • When: February 25, 2020, 10:00 PM ET
  • Where: Staples Center
  • NBA Betting Lines: Lakers -7.5
  • Over/Under: 239.5
  • Moneyline: Pelicans +270 vs. Lakers -325

Betting on the Pelicans? Record: 25-28, 7th in the NBA Eastern Conference

Zion has been unstoppable and, so far, lived up to all the hoopla. But, how will he stand against AD and LeBron in Los Angeles? He may have another thing coming, packed in a humbleness pie.

It's the first time Williamson plays in Staples Center, and that court has seen its share of legends and legendary games. Though Zion has cracked eight games scoring twenty points or more, I expect this game to be a harder test.

The Pelicans haven't been successful against the Lakers having lost five of the last six games. However, considering how New Orleans has been playing, I think they'll hang in there and keep the score close.  

Betting on the Lakers? Record: 25-32, 10th in the NBA Western Conference

 It seems the Lakers didn't turn off their engines during the All-Star break; LA is on a five-game winning streak and has won seven of their last eight games.

The dynamic duo of LeBron and AD are magic to watch and is reminiscent of a lot of legendary partnerships in this organization. Davis hasn't been forgiving of his former team and has averaged 43.5 points in two games. James has added twenty-three of his points in those two games.

Insider Prediction: Don't think that Zion isn't going to try to go out there and make his mark. Zion is a beast. Almost superhuman. Nevertheless, he's a man, and the Lakers are a team. The Lakers win, but the Pelicans cover.

Pick: Pelicans +7.5
