In terms of lineage, the New Orleans Pelicans are the youngest franchise in the NBA being first established in 2002 when the Charlotte Hornets relocated to the city. Following the 2013 season, the team rebranded itself as the Pelicans and returned the Hornets name and history back to Charlotte. Despite their young history, the franchise has already won a division title. The last few years have been hard on the team but they show a lot of promise that prospective gamblers can be keen on.

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 simply 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 favorite 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 onm. 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 really 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 playoffs despite finishing last in the division during the 2014-2015 season. As long as the Texan continue to succeed, the Pelicans will have to get used to this.
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.
