Wizards vs Pelicans Prediction & Pick
Fans are going to be treated to an entertaining clash tonight because not only can the Wizards and Pelicans score the ball, but they can also defense. All of this should lead to one of the more competitive Summer League contests.
It should be a close game, but I'm siding with the Pelicans here. I do think they have a slightly deeper team and they also shot the ball better in their last game (.557/.444/.806) compared to the Wizards (.465/.348/1.000) in their last effort. However, New Orleans must limit its turnovers after coughing up the ball 19 times against the Hawks.
At the end of the day, I think that the Pelicans have what it takes to win this game. As for the best bet, the two clubs are talented enough to combine for over 177.5 points.
