New Orleans Pelicans Odds, Betting Types, & Pelicans Schedule

The young New Orleans Pelicans had moments of both brilliance and disappointment during the 2020-21 season, winning a few tough games in a row before going on a multi-game slide. The Pels fell short of the playoffs, winning just 31 games and finishing 11th in the Western Conference.

Head coach Stan Van Gundy has a ton of talent to work with heading into the 2021-22 season, though, including Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, and Eric Bledsoe. See more information on the Pelicans, including their full schedule, odds, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, injuries, and more.

New Orleans Pelicans Point Spreads

Given the loaded, young roster, bettors last season had somewhat high hopes for the Pelicans. As a result of those expectations, Pelicans bettors were not profitable against-the-spread, going just 33-38-1.

If you're new to betting, spread bets are one of the most common types of wagers in the market. Put simply, you're just betting on the margin of victory in a game. Look at this example of a Pelicans game:

The odds above say the Pelicans are 2.5-point favorites over the Spurs; you can denote that by the minus sign above. A Pels spread bet would cash in this instance if they beat the Spurs by three or more points. Any other outcome in the game would be a win for Spurs spread bettors.

New Orleans Pelicans Moneylines

Just because a team has a losing record doesn't mean they were automatically bad moneyline bets. These types of bets are simply on which team will win, and like spread bets they're tied to expectations set by the betting market. Take this example Pels game:

  • New Orleans Pelicans +165
  • Dallas Mavericks -200

Because the Pelicans are expected to lose, moneyline bettors get a plus-money payout if they win. You can read the odds in $100 increments: A $100 bet on the Pels ML would pay out $165 if they won. In contrast, a Mavericks moneyline bet here would require $200 spent to win $100.

New Orleans Pelicans Over/Unders

One way savvy bettors made money on the Pelicans last season was on over/under bets. These are wagers on the combined point output by both teams in a game. The Pelicans were 41-30-1 to the over a year ago.

Here's an example of game: Say the Pels played the Grizzlies and the total was at 239 points. If the teams combined for 240 or more points, over bettors would cash their tickets. Exactly 239 would push the bet, and 238 or fewer points would win for under bettors.

New Orleans Pelicans Props

Between Zion Williamson, Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, and others, there's no shortage of big names on the Pelicans roster. If you prefer to bet on just a single player, you'll find those bets at any sportsbook, and they're called player props. Some Pelicans props include Zion to score over/under 18.5 points, Lonzo Ball to post a double-double, and more.

Pelicans Futures

Will 2021-22 be the season Zion Williamson and the Pelicans take the leap into playoff contention? If you think so, look at futures bets, which are wagers based on end-of-season things. Some other Pelicans futures include Zion to win NBA MVP, the Pelicans to win the Southwest Division, and more.
