New Orleans Pelicans vs Denver Nuggets 1/31/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The New Orleans Pelicans will meet with the Denver Nuggets in NBA action in Ball Arena, CO, on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, at 10:00 PM ET.


After their 135-110 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, the New Orleans Pelicans (26-25; 24-27 ATS) are on an eight-game winless skid.


Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scored 50 points on 20 of 26 field goal attempts, was too much for the Pels to handle.


When it came to field goals, New Orleans shot 44.1% (13-for-34 from outside the arc) and 71.4% of its free throws, trailing Milwaukee the whole game (15-for-21).


On January 2, Zion Williamson was hurt during a 120-111 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. Since then, the Pels had a lot of difficulties, posting records of 3-11 SU and 5-9 ATS.


They lost ground in the Western Conference rankings and are currently tied for the No. 7 spot with Dallas and Phoenix. At the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, the Pelicans were severely lacking in players.


Both CJ McCollum and Brandon Ingram missed the Bucks game due to injuries; their availability for the Nuggets game is in doubt.


Against Milwaukee, Jose Alvarado scored 18 points, Trey Murphy III earned 16, and Jonas Valanciunas contributed 16.


  • The New Orleans Pelicans are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 matches. 
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of New Orleans’ last 5 matches. 
  • The Pelicans are 0-8 SU in their last 8 matches.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Denver Nuggets Predictions 1/31/2023


Last Saturday, the Denver Nuggets (34-16; 25-24-1 ATS) finished a three-game road trip with a 126-119 loss against the Philadelphia 76ers.


Along with a 99-98 victory at New Orleans, it was their third defeat in four matches and the second in a row. The Nuggets only managed to score 46 points in the second half, blowing a third-quarter lead of 15 points.


A few games ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies, the Nuggets are leading the Western Conference. Denver is second in the league for the offensive rating with 118.0 points for every 100 possessions.


The Nuggets lead the NBA in 3-point shooting at 39.6%, but they also permit 114.2 points per 100 possessions, or 56.0%, on shots made inside the arc, which ranks them 15th overall (tied 24th).


Nikola Jokic led Denver in scoring against the Sixers with 24 points, but Joel Embiid tormented the two-time defending MVP with a scorching 47 points and 18 rebounds. Michael Porter Jr. had 20 points and 6 rebounds, while Jamal Murray had 22 points and 6 assists.


  • The Nuggets are 2-4 ATS in their previous 6 contests. 
  • The total went UNDER in 8 of Denver’s previous 11 meetings. 
  • The Denver Nuggets are 10-3 SU in their last 13 matches.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Denver Nuggets. The NBA pick for this game is the Denver Nuggets. Due to the Pelicans’ injury woes, the only wager that can be made is on the Nuggets to cover the spread.


Denver won 16 of its last 17 home games, and in its previous 11 games played at Ball Arena, it is 7-3-1 ATS.


In order to snap a two-game losing streak, the Nuggets will be extremely motivated, and Nikola Jokic will try to record his second consecutive triple-double against the Pelicans.


The Pels are harmed by Zion Williamson’s absence on both sides of the ball. During its losing run, New Orleans has a 2-6 ATS record, and in their last ten matches with the Northwest Division, the Pelicans have a 3-7 ATS record.


The Denver Nuggets will win to a predicted score of 120-114.
