Bet here and win

New Orleans Pelicans

New Orleans continue to fight for the playoffs. Zion Williamson, supported by Brandon Ingram, is very effective. For two, they gain average about 50 points per match. It is worth noting that at the beginning of the month the teams already showed an attacking performance in the intramural match. Then the Timberwolves won – 139:134.

The team led by Alvin Gentry in the last ten matches has lost exactly half, which is typical for their position in the conference. But in order for them to go up a few lines, this result is clearly not enough, so they will try to win. To not use this chance, especially when a team with a rank lower plays against you looks weird.

Minnesota Timberwolves

Minnesota win only 30% of the matches of the current season. This team looks terrible in home matches. Not so long, a team from Minneapolis released at the start of two stars and one player above the average level. Now Wiggins has gone to Golden State, and Townes is injured. Teague returned to Atlanta. Therefore, only Russell remained with the strong individual performers, which, of course, is not enough for long-term success.

The hosts in the last ten matches got only three victories, which for them, in general, is not even bad, considering only one match out of twenty that took place before that. Wards of Ryan Saunders are definitely not in good condition, and this is evident in the season as a whole, their perhaps only chance to win this year appears mainly against similar teams in strength, such as in this match.

Pelicans vs Timberwolves Prediction

Summing up the results of this confrontation, we see a small but still in many aspects a significant advantage of the Pelicans. The team in the season is more successful, so they have every chance for this match in order to gain another one more in their piggy bank.
