Advice and prediction

It feels odd for the current iteration of the Pelicans to be favored by over seven points but the Wizards are in bad shape. Washington has a host of guards and lack size, a problem when going up against Zion Williamson and Steven Adams.

If it’s a war of attrition, the Pelicans stand a good chance of winning. But more than betting on the game, Zion Williamson is the one to target at over 24.5 points and over 35.5 points, rebounds and assists.

Prediction: Pelicans 113, Wizards 109
