Bet On New Orleans Pelicans' Games
There are many ways to bet on NBA games, but you’ll have to master the art of the money line. In this system, you put money on which team you think wins the game. The return on your bet depends on what odds the teams are listed at. A minus line like -130 means the team is a favourite and a $130 bet is needed to win $100, while a plus line like +115 means the team is the underdog and $115 will be won when you bet $100.
The Brow: the Pelicans drafted Anthony Davis as the first overall pick in 2012, their last season as the Hornets. The big man would eventually grow into being a bonafide superstar despite injuries derailing him early on. How far this franchise goes depends on how well they can secure and build around his future. It’s either a new age or settling under mediocrity.
Bottom feeders: playing the Southwest Division is tough, especially for the fledgling Pelicans. Since the division’s inception in the 2004-2005 NBA season, the franchise has finished in the bottom two in all but two seasons. Because of how strong the division is, however, the Pelicans managed to qualify for the NBA playoffs despite finishing last in the division during the 2014-2015 season. As long as the Texan continues to succeed, the Pelicans will have to get used to this. The New Orleans Pelicans' odds to make the playoff have not taken off quite yet. They have not won a division title since 2008.
Over the Pelicans: another type of bet to play with the Pelicans is the team totals or over/under. Here, you try to predict whether the total score between the Pelicans and their opponent goes over or under the given number i.e. 211.5. The outcome of the game doesn’t matter. Since 2012, Pelicans’ games have hit the over at least 52 percent of the time. That number jumps up to 59.4 percent when they are at home and drops to 44.4 percent on the road.
