Pelicans vs. Warriors Prediction & Pick

The Warriors' absences clear the way for the Pelicans to get back in the win column. New Orleans owns one of the league's best offenses to begin the season, ranking No. 6 in points per game and fourth in team 3-point percentage. Golden State's defense has been a liability even when everyone is healthy, giving up the fourth-most PPG to opponents so far.

C.J. McCollum and Brandon Ingram should make short work of the Warriors' reserves.

Prediction: Pelicans: 125 | Warriors: 102

Pelicans vs. Warriors Best Bet

Zion Williamson is expected to return from a three-game absence tonight, and he could thrive on the boards considering who's out for Golden State. Not only is Draymond Green taking a seat, but Andrew Wiggins and Kevon Looney may join him given their questionable tags. That trio, plus Stephen Curry, make up this team's top four leading rebounders. They've already struggled to keep opponents off the boards (seventh-most RPG allowed), so the Pelicans' star forward should feast with the lack of threats in the paint on Monday.

Bet: Zion Williamson Over 6.5 Rebounds (-138)
