Bulls vs. Pelicans Game Info

Chicago Bulls (15-18, 8-7 Away) vs. New Orleans Pelicans (15-19, 10-7 Home)
Date: Wednesday, March 3, 2021
Time: 8 p.m. EST
Venue: Smoothie King Center — New Orleans, La.

The Bulls have been playing much better as of late. They have won three of their last eight games, with the losses coming against the 76ers, Suns and Nuggets. Lauri Markkanen is doubtful to play tonight, but they have had other frontcourt players step up in his absence. Another player who has stepped up his game is Zach LaVine. He averaged 30.9 points on 53.8% shooting during February. He also hit 3.6 3-point shots per game, proving to everyone that he has a complete offensive game.

The Pelicans are incredibly inconsistent, but they have the ability to beat anybody. This is proven by them defeating the Jazz last game. They rank sixth in offensive efficiency, at 113.8. This is why they are capable of defeating anyone. New Orleans is also 29th in defensive efficiency, at 114.1. This is why there is inconsistency and why they are capable of losing to anyone as well.

Bulls vs. Pelicans NBA Picks | Total

Much like the point spread, those making NBA betting picks for the total in tonight’s Bulls – Pelicans game should be a bit selective. Those interested in betting the total over will find the best value at BetMGM in the form of an over 236.5 (-110) ticket. On the contrary, those looking to bet the Bulls – Pelicans total under should aim to do so at FanDuel, with a line of 237.5 (-110).

Bulls vs. Pelicans Prediction

The Pelicans have been terrible as home favorites this season, covering the spread just 20% of the time (2-8). On the other side, the Bulls are the best team in the league at covering the spread on the road, with a 11-4 record. This will likely be a high-scoring, close game, and I expect these trends to continue.

Prediction: Bulls +5.5
