New Orleans Pelicans Player Stats
New Orleans Pelicans 2021-22 Season
We’re in yet another new age for the New Orleans ball club. CJ McCollum is a Pelican, bringing some added star power to Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson – now if only the latter would be healthy enough to play.
Despite injuries and the shakeup at the trade deadline, New Orleans is right there with San Antonio on the outside looking in for a Play-In spot – but not by much. Just a few games separate them from a potential No. 9 or 10 seed finish.

Betting on the New Orleans Pelicans
Whether the Pelicans win or lose on the court, bettors always have a chance to be winners wagering on the team using these bet types.
- Point Spread
- Future Odds
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.
The Pelicans have been a middle of the road team against-the-spread so far this season, going just 28-30-1 through the All-Star break.
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:
- New Orleans Pelicans (-2.5)
- San Antonio Spurs (+2.5)
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.
The Pelicans were 41-30-1 to the over a year ago…which is why it might be surprising to hear that they’re just 25-34 for it this year on over/under bets.
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.
Pelicans Prop Bets
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 Future Odds
Expectations rose in New Orlenas with the arrival of Zion Williamson, which means bettors will have to shop for the best line to get good odds on Pelicans futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long term outcomes, like the Pelicans to make the playoffs , win the Southwest Division, win the Western Conference, win the NBA Finals , or even individual awards like Williamson winning league MVP.
