New Orleans Pelicans vs. Los Angeles Lakers CashBet Wagering Analysis

The Los Angeles Lakers are already getting their groove with their new players Montrezl Harrell, Dennis Shroeder, Wes Matthews and Marc Gasol. The additions fit like a glove while the New Orleans Pelicans are having a hard time figuring out themselves. Youth vs experience in this matchup and the older boys are set to teach the young studs.

Not What the Pelicans Expected

The New Orleans Pelicans are on a rough patch and lost a lot of games in the closing minutes. They are now on a three-game losing streak and they lost to teams that are borderline playoff contenders. Zion Williamson is already creating a bad buzz that he is really not worth the hype while Brandon Ingram is really not a leader. Eric Bledsoe is still making the team adjust to him while Lonzo Ball is all good in numbers but the defense has not been good. Steven Adams has been consistent for them but this is like a badly mixed lemonade. They need to turn things around and start with identifying the closers from the role players. The Stan Van Gundy experiment has been disappointing so far.

Lakers on Top of the World!

The Los Angeles Lakers are the best team in the NBA right now and with their record at 10-3. This team has been a model of avoiding COVID-19 with only Alex Caruso being the only player in quarantine since the start of the season. LeBron James has not missed any game so far and is the early favorite to win his fifth MVP award. Anthony Davis just missed a few games and the Lakers duo are not entertaining load management as compared to other NBA stars. Kyle Kuzma has been patient and has been a good factor for the team when one of their two best players are off on their start.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Los Angeles Lakers Head-to-Head with Spread

Anthony Davis is set to face his old team and their new franchise player Zion Williamson. On the other hand, Brandon Ingram will face his old team as well with a renewed skill set. The New Orleans Pelicans look good on paper but they have not been living up to expectations while the Los Angeles Lakers are already the favorites to win it all and proving why.
