Hi all,

Welcome to the NBA Tips for January 8th, 2020.

Our last week here got off to a bad start. I took Timberwolves +3.5. Towns was out and I didn’t think that would affect thing. It really didn’t. Minnesota were looking good for the majority of the game and it was looking to be a very tight game where the points would matter in the 4th quarter.

The Timberwolves took a big lead then completely blew it which was lovely to see. Just lovely.

As a reminder we will be moving over to Sports Betting Tips probably on the weekend.

Bulls vs Pelicans Betting Tips:

The Chicago Bulls come into this on a 4 game losing streak. They had three games at home that they lost in a row, then went on the road and lost to the Mavericks. Have to go back to December 28th for their last win, when they beat the Hawks 116-81. A rare game where both the offense and defense showed up at the same time.

The Pelicans will be boosted by the fact that Zion Williamson is participating in 5 on 5 drills on a full court. They’ll ease him in no doubt when he does come in. Can’t wait and I hope the injury didn’t mess with him.

The Pelicans have been UP for games. Their offense has been doing fantastic. Alas their defense hasn’t and they are letting up 100+ points in most games other than that Pacers one – also on the 28th.

I always like a team like that. it makes you feel like they can pick themselves up off the mat when down. They lost to the Lakers 123-113 but then bounced right back the next night with a fiery performance as they beat the Kings 117-115.

They had a tough loss to the Jazz even though they were without Jrue Holiday which is nuts. Lonzo Ball is really coming together as a player right now.

The Pelicans will be missing Jrue Holiday again. That will be tough as we know Zach LaVine has the potential to just go nuts out there. the Pelicans missing their best perimeter defender will be tough news.

Lauri Markkanen has also stepped up a lot lately.

I like the Pelicans to keep their momentum going and put up the points. However I’ve got to think the Bulls will be able to match them in terms of offense with Jrue out. LaVine should have a field day out there.
