New Orleans Pelicans vs. Oklahoma City Thunder - 2/13/20 NBA Pick, Odds & Prediction

Zion Williamson 4th rookie with consecutive 30-point games since 2013

The New Orleans Pelicans are shooting 37.3 percent from beyond the arc and 73.7 percent from the free throw line. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is leading the team with 19.5 points and 6.1 rebounds per contest.

According to the latest oddsmakers, the Pelicans are favored at home, as they are getting odds of -2.5 points against the Thunder. Oklahoma City was knocked off 114-106 at home by San Antonio in their previous contest Tuesday night. Dennis Schroder and Danilo Gallinari each add over 19 points per game as well. The over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in New Orleans.

While the Pelicans ultimately lost the game, Williamson appears to really be finding his groove after debuting last month as the National Basketball Association heads into the All-Star break. The Pelicans have covered in all three wins as well. Brandon Ingram leads the team in scoring with 24.9 points per game along with 6.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists this season. The New Orleans Pelicans are allowing 35.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.6 rebounds per game. Zion Williamson made his season debut against the Spurs on January 22 and has averaged 21 points and 7.7 boards since his return. The New Orleans Pelicans are averaging 115.7 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 117.2 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Ingram is questionable after missing the last two games with an ankle injury.


Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul (3) dribbles against New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday (11) at Smoothie King Center.

The Thunder are 21-5 ATS in their last 26 road games, 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games playing on 1 days rest and 17-7 ATS in their last 24 games overall. It swept the regular season series against the Pelicans 4-0.

Adams' spectacular shot gave Oklahoma City an eight-point lead at halftime. I think the Pelicans continue their offensive momentum tonight and go into the break with another win and cover.
