Brandon Ingram (SF) vs. Stephen Curry (PG)

Brandon Ingram of the Pelicans has taken his game to another level this season, averaging career highs with 22.5 points, 5.5 assists and 46% shooting. His versatile scoring makes him difficult to defend; Ingram excels at attacking both the rim and three-point shot; however he struggles with turnovers at times (2.6 turnovers per contest).

Stephen Curry of the Warriors continues to showcase why he is one of the premier players in the league, averaging 27.6 points and shooting 38% from three at age 34. Curry’s elite shooting, ball handling and shot creation make him nearly unguardable; although his scoring nights remain frequent he has become more prone to turnovers this season and should value each possession against a disciplined Pelicans defense.

This matchup pits two dynamic offensive talents at different stages in their careers. While Stephen Curry remains lethal, Ingram may hold an advantage due to his size and two-way ability. Furthermore, both players’ ability to facilitate for teammates will play an essential role in this contest; ultimately Ingram looks likely to outduel Curry if he avoids mistakes.


NBA Odds/Point Spread: TBD, Total Odds: TBD

The betting odds for this game are yet to be determined, but they will undoubtedly be influenced by the teams’ recent performances and head-to-head records. Bettors should consider the Pelicans’ consistent play and the Warriors’ potential for explosive scoring when making their picks.


New Orleans Pelicans Betting Trends

New Orleans has posted a solid 8-7 against the spread record on the road this season. The Pelicans are 3-2 ATS over their last five as well. This shows that despite being fourth in the West, the Pelicans are still underestimated by oddsmakers. Their efficient scoring, rebounding and defense can travel. Furthermore, the totals have gone OVER in nine of the Pelicans’ last 20 games at home. With two efficient offenses on display, an uptempo game with 230+ points is very achievable.


Golden State Warriors Betting Trends

The Warriors have disappointed bettors this season with a lackluster 9-6 home ATS record. Golden State has also failed to cover in three of its past five contests. These trends point to the Warriors still being overvalued in the betting marketplace. In contrast, the totals have gone OVER in 12 of Golden State’s last 20 home matchups. The Warriors play plenty of high-scoring, fast paced games at Chase Center. They should have no issues keeping up offensively in this contest.


New Orleans Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors 1/10/24 Betting Picks

Given recent form and team performance, this matchup leans slightly in favor of the New Orleans Pelicans; however, don’t discount the Warriors’ ability to score high scores at home – especially Curry and their shooters’ ability to do damage at will.

Prop bets and over/under betting could prove lucrative with such an evenly-balanced contest; its high scoring nature suggests an OVER would likely be appropriate. With Ingram’s all-around play and Stephen Curry’s scoring prowess providing prop betting opportunities. While Pelicans appear to hold an edge, unpredictable Warriors make this matchup exciting betting opportunities when using top bookie software.
