Giannis Antetkonmo, Zion Williamson, and New Orleans Pelicans

The 2022-2023 NBA season continues on Monday, November 21, with 16 teams in action. Check out a solid showing of Monday night action, featuring Giannis Antetokounmpo, Zion Williamson, and the New Orleans Pelicans.

NBA Parlay Leg #1: Giannis Antetokounmpo over 29.5 points (-108)

Giannis Antetokounmo hasn’t been his usual self lately. The Milwaukee Bucks star has averaged just 23.8 points per game over the last five contests, while shooting just 40.8%. This comes after he averaged 33.6 ppg while shooting 56.9% in his first seven contests.

Antetokounmpo showed some of his frustration after his last contest against the Philadelphia 76ers, a 110-102 loss on Friday. After Philadelphia’s Montrezl Harrell took away Antitokonmo’s basketball while trying to work on his free throws after the game, he had to get other throws elsewhere. By that time, he had reappeared at the court of Philadelphia, workers trying to destroy the network. Antetokounmpo pushed the ladder that toppled him.

Look for Giannis to use that frustration to get out of his recent slump, as the big players generally do. Expect the two-time MVP to score at least 30 points for the first time since November 2.

NBA #2: Zion Williamson under 24.5 points (-106)

Zion Williamson has scored at least 25 points in seven of the 11 games he has played this year. However, the New Orleans Pelicans star has missed the last three games dealing with a bruised right foot.

After missing two games earlier in the season, Williamson went for just 21 points in his return. Moreover, in his only game with the Golden State Warriors this season, he scored only 16 points.

While he’s expected to return against Golden State on Monday, look for the Pelicans to show caution by limiting his minutes. Expect Williamson to score fewer than 25 points for only the fifth time this season.

NBA Parlay Leg #3: New Orleans Pelicans -10 (-110)

The defending champion Golden State Warriors struggled to an 8-9 record. Despite this, the prevalence of this game seems unusually high at first glance. Golden State, however, would field the starting lineup.

While the New Orleans Pelicans have struggled with injuries throughout their first season, they will be close to full strength. Look for the Pelicans to take advantage of their opponent’s second unit. Expect New Orleans to win by at least 11 points.
