Given the Nuggets injuries and the exuberance the Pelicans are feeling with Zion active this feels like it could be the game where the rookie gets his first NBA victory.. Read more at capperspicks.com

Pick : New Orleans Pelicans (-3)
The Pelicans shot of pulling off a win skyrocket tremendously with the game not taking place at the house of horrors in Denver. Gentry will likely give Williamson a few more minutes this time around, but I’m not expecting the rookie to see full-time work just yet, even if it means losing another basketball game..

Pick : DENVER NUGGETS -3.0
Denver has some key players on the injured list, while the Pelicans just cleared the injury list, as Zion Williamson was cleared to play. Williamson did have a solid game in a minutes restricted game. Williamson stats wise did look decent, but most of his points came from behind the arch. The points from behind the arch were due to the Spurs daring Williamson to shoot. The Spurs essentially left Williamson wide open. This will not be the case against a Nuggets defense that ranks 6th in scoring defense. Williamson will be great as the season continues, but he isn't in top tier shape at the moment, therefore I see Denver being able to keep his production to a minimal. The Pelicans give up nearly 188 per game, which should allow Denver to score over their season average. I like the Nuggets here, even with a couple players on the injured list. Final score prediction, Nuggets will win and cover, 113-106. . Read more at sportschatplace.com
Denver has not fared well when playing New Orleans head-to-head. The Nuggets have failed to cover the spread in each of the last 6 versus the Pelicans. The Nuggets are also struggling with injuries as Paul Millsap, Mason Plumlee, Gary Harris, and second leading scorer Jamal Murray are sidelined with varying injuries. Final Score Prediction, New Orleans Pelicans win and cover ATS 120-113.. Read more at picksandparlays.com

Pick : Nuggets
I will be going with the Nuggets in this matchup. The Pelicans may have Williamson back, but they still allow far too many points per game. Even against a lower scoring team like Denver, 117 points allowed per game is difficult to overcome and especially against a Nuggets defense allowing the sixth-fewest points per game this season. Williamson will make the game fun but I am siding with Denver in this contest.. Read more at statsalt.com

Pick : New Orleans Pelicans -3.5
The Pelicans picked up a 112-100 win over the Nuggets on Christmas Day and they had a 122-107 win at home back on Halloween. The Pelicans are a team that is going to score points. They have put up 117 or more in five straight. Their ability to score and the addition of Williamson, who was 4-for-4 from the arc in his debut, gives them even more potential. Denver is a team that needs to win with defense. Four of their last five has seen them score 107 points or less. I think the Pelicans’ scoring ability will take Denver out of its style of play and lead to another New Orleans win in this series.. Read more at thespread.com

Pick : Denver Nuggets +3
The defense for the Nuggets was definitely pushed hard in the last game against the Rockets, but that does not change the fact that the Nuggets are still one of the best teams in the NBA on defense. The offense for the Nuggets will have a better game here as well and that will definitely help the Nuggets out quite a bit as the Pelicans are not that great defensively and that can lead to the Nuggets easily winning the game. Final Score, Denver Nuggets win 109-104. Read more at winningfreepicks.com
