And you add in Reddick either starting or off the bench and I love this team. They can change ends. Shooting a bit suspect. But if you can defend and change ends, you can win games. Zion is the ultimate X-factor. Dude could literally be another GOAT tier talent.

Thoughts?

Avy bet that Ingram won't score 22+?

Because I can almost guarantee he won't.

The Pelicans are not going to be good

I think they'd be lucky to win 30 games.

Intuition : don't do it. Throw alil if you really want but that seems like a long shot bet.

The spacing is gonna be awful, poor ft shooters everywhere will definitely be near the bottom of the league. People also overestimate how good zion will be out of the gate. I see a homeless mans randle at best. Ball/ingram will be injured for at least a quarter of the season each. 25 wins maybe.

Shit actually u should throw a lil on playoffs if you really believe. Prol pay more and it's not that much different odds wise. Imo.

Can get paid off like a couple hundred if you're right.

Pelicans ain't winning shit

Ingram is a bum

Lonzo won't play more than 60 games like always

Zion is overrated af

They'll finish anywhere from 35-45 wins depending on injuries.

On paper, they got a potential 8th seed

Jrue, Redick, Miller and Moore can all shoot 3s and FTs, then you got Favors who had a nice season in Utah and who can give them quality minutes. Gentry is a good coach and has got a worse Pelicans roster to the Playoffs before and he obviously made the WCF with the Suns.

It all depends on the health of Zo, Zion and Ingram. Will Zion be durable with his playing style? Will BI have any more issues with blood clots? Is Zo finally going to play a full season? I wouldn't bet my bank on the over because there are so many variables here, from lack of experience to potential health problems.

This is what I'm saying... altho I wouldn't go as high as 35 for the low. They are gonna a momentum team probably because they are young. There are outcomes that have them going up down up down up down and ending at 40, but there are one that'd have them as 30 or 8th seed. All 3 seem like strong possibilities (in the pie), so why not just bet playoffs. GO ALL THE WAY. Just don't put your house on it.

Edit: if you believe their low range is 35+ then take that bet on the over. haha. But I don't.
