The New Orleans Pelicans travel to Denver to take on the Nuggets while playing the second game of a three-game road trip. The Pelicans have lost eight of their last 10 overall and are fresh off a 135-110 romp Sunday night by the Milwaukee Bucks.

As for the Nuggets, they return home after a three-game road trip where they boast a 22-4 record on their own court. They will take on the Pelicans in the third game of a four-game season series, which is tied 1-1.

Last time these two teams met up, it was a back-and-forth affair with the Nuggets taking the lead in the final few seconds. Looks like we are in for another close contest especially with the Pelicans getting some key weapons back and healthy.

NBA Same Game Parlay Odds & Pick

The Parlay: (+310)

  • Brandon Ingram Over 4.5 Assists (+105)
  • Michael Porter Jr. Over 15.5 Points (+100)

Brandon Ingram Over 4.5 Assists

Brandon Ingram is back for the Pelicans and will play his third game since missing more than two months with a toe injury. In the prior two games since coming back, Ingram struggled with efficiency and has shown signs of rust.

He's averaged 17.5 points on 30% shooting from the floor. He's really struggled from beyond the arc hitting only one made 3-point shot through 11 attempts.

Last season, we saw Ingram put up huge numbers against Denver, averaging 25.7 points on 46.4% shooting. But it's tough to trust him in this spot given the time away. Throughout the three regular season meetings last year, Ingram logged five, 12, and nine assists per contest.

Looks like we could see him contributing more in that role against a very tough Nuggets defense.

Michael Porter Jr. Over 15.5 Points

Denver's Michael Porter Jr. missed a month of time with a heel injury Nov. 22, which kept him sidelined until Dec. 23. Since coming back, he's averaged 16.1 points per game on 49.5% shooting from the floor and 39.3% from beyond the arc.

He put up some huge numbers versus the Nuggets over the last three head-to-head meetings, averaging 38.3 minutes of game time and shooting 55.8% from the floor and 52.6% from beyond the arc. He's logged 23.3 points per contest and 3.3 made 3-point shots.

Jamal Murray is questionable tonight with injury management of his knee, and this could be a prime opportunity to see a little more MPJ. Although his playing time has been much lower this season, this game could see him logging some good numbers.

He should be beaming with confidence with how well he's been shooting as of late, especially in a favorable matchup against the Pels.
