New Orleans vs Sacramento: prediction for the NBA match
On February 5, New Orleans and Sacramento will face each other for a first time in the current season. Who will get a victory? The answer is in our prediction.
New Orleans Pelicans
Pelicans managed to finally put an end to their losing streak. Louisiana team secured a home victory over the Lakers (131:126). Ingram put up a Player of the Match performance. In 40 minutes on the floor Brandon scored 35 points, five rebounds and four assists.
A victory over the Lakers became a first one in three weeks for New Orleans. Willie Green's men suffered ten defeats in a row. That's why the Pelicans slided down to a 9th position in the Western conference.
The Kings had to play against Indiana without De'Aaron Fox. Absence of key player is a big blow for the team. Mike Brown's men suffered a 104:107 defeat.
Fox will have to miss the game against New Orleans as well.
Ставка Sacramento: total under 115,5 points
Kings scored no more than 115 points in 3 of 5 latest matches
Ставка Sabonis: total over 12,5 rebounds
Domantas averages 13 boards per game on away
Pelicans felt the taste of blood and now they will try to put up another strong performance. Visitors will play without their leader. With Fox out of the picture, it will be much easier for the Pelicans. Willie Green's men should be able to get a victory.
Our prediction - New Orleans to win with a handicap of (-1,5) points
California team was not so great on the offense recently. Kings failed to score more than 229 points in any of five latest matches. In this case, we are expecting a high-scoring game.
Our second bet is on total under 236,5 points
