Young New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson leads his team into a clash with the Utah Jazz on Monday night. The Pelicans will need a big night from Williamson if they have any chance at taking down the team with the league's best record so far this season.

The over/under for Zion's points total against the Jazz may offer value for a few reasons.

Zion Williamson Projected Stats Tonight

Williamson's points total for Monday's game sits at 26.5 points, per player prop bets from FanDuel Sportsbook. While this was once available at +100 on the over, even at the current -106 odds, there's value.

The forward has scored 27 or more points in 15 of his 32 games this season. Furthermore, he's hit that mark in nine of his last 14 contests, averaging 28.1 points per game during that span, demonstrating the recent scoring tear that he's on.

Utah is a scary opponent, as evidenced by the fact that they're holding opponents to the third-fewest PPG (106.5) in the entire league. However, Zion scored 32 and 27 points, respectively, in his team's two prior matchups against the Jazz this season.

Given his latest performances and past success in the scoring department against Utah earlier this year, there's little reason to believe he won't hit the over in this game.
