The Bulls are looking to end the first half of the NBA season on a strong note with a win against the Pelicans. After a nice surge, Chicago is suddenly in the midst of a two-game slide after losing to the Suns and Nuggets. Meanwhile, the Pelicans are coming into this game with a little bit of momentum after taking down the Utah Jazz, the team with the best record in the NBA.

Bulls vs. Pelicans Props
Coby White Under 2.5 Made Threes (-118)
The juice is a bit high on this Coby White prop, but not enough to discourage us from taking this. Although White is shooting a respectable 34.7% from deep this year, he is struggling to convert from deep in recent weeks.
Since drilling 8 of his 17 attempts from three against the Pelicans on Feb. 10, White is shooting just 30.5% on triples. He’s only gone over on this number three times in nine games during that span.
Of course, he did have his best game of the season against the Pelicans, but we expect New Orleans to adjust this time around.

Zion Williamson Under 27.5 Points (+100)
We love Zion Williamson to go under 27.5 points at even odds on Wednesday. This number is higher than his points per game this season and it’s worth noting that he has only scored 28 or more in three of his last six games. This is a toss-up, which makes the +100 odds look even sweeter.
Slowing Williamson down is easier said than done, but the Bulls are capable of causing some matchup havoc for the second-year star out of Duke. With his first All-Star appearance coming up this weekend, Williamson might be looking ahead to his weekend in Atlanta.

Zach LaVine Under 5.5 Rebounds (-107)
If you are sensing a theme with these player props, you are obviously paying attention. We’re rounding out our list with another under bet and this time it’s Zach LaVine’s rebounds. He’s hauled in five or fewer rebounds in four of his last five games and we expect that trend to continue on Wednesday.
The Pelicans are strong inside with Williamson and Steven Adams manning the paint. Much like Williamson, LaVine is heading to his first All-Star Game this weekend. With the first half of the season winding down, Bulls-Pelicans could be a sloppy, low-scoring game where under bettors are rewarded.
