Philadelphia 76ers vs New Orleans Pelicans Predictions 10/20/2021


In New Orleans, the Pelicans have their struggles with a new coach, former Phoenix Suns assistant Willie Green replacing  Stan Van Gundy, after a poor show in last season’s hostilities. The Pelicans are beginning a new era with Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram as their star players. 


The Pelicans lost their last preseason match to the Utah Jazz by a score of 96-127 to cap their preseason matches at 2-2. New Orleans shot poorly and Green will give attention for further improvement. PF Zion Williamson will not play on Wednesday, so Brandon Ingram will need to step up in his absence.


Ingram averaged 23 points, five rebounds, and five assists last season, and is one of the most improved players in the league. He is expected to lead the Pelicans in scoring this season but will have his task cut out against a strong Philadelphia 76ers defense.

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of the Pelicans’ last 5 games at home.
