NBA Same Game Parlay Odds, Picks & Predictions: Monday (1/16)
Here are our top same-game parlay bets for Monday’s slate of NBA action.
Phoenix Suns vs. Memphis Grizzlies
- Leg 1: Mikal Bridges Under 16.5 Points (-106)
- Leg 2: DeAndre Ayton Under Under 17.5 Points (-112)
- Leg 3: Mikal Bridges Under 1.5 Threes (+108)
Mikal Bridges and DeAndre Ayton are expected to carry the Suns right now. But those guys have been a bit inconsistent lately.
Bridges have only reached 17 points per game in 36% of games this season. Over the last 20 games, he’s hit 17 points 40% of the time. He’s also hit 17 points in just four of his last ten games. He’s also only taking 3.7 threes per game in January. Of those 3.7 shots, he’s nailed just 1.4, shooting under 40% from deep.
Meanwhile, DeAndre Ayton is averaging just 17.3 points per game. He’s only hit 18 points in one of his last five games. In three of those five games, he hasn’t even played more than 31 minutes. The Suns continue to lose and get blown out with brutal offense.
Back the two best players on Phoenix to put up weak numbers in the box score tonight.
Parlay Odds: +420
Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Lakers
- Leg 1: Jalen Green Under 24.5 Points (-115)
- Leg 2: Alperen Sengun Under 9,5 Rebounds (-128)
- Leg 3: Jabari Smith Over 1.5 Threes (-104)
Jalen Green has added 21.5 points per game this season. He’s only shooting 40.6% from the field but has reached at least 26 points in three of his last four games. However, in the grand scheme, Green has only reached 25 points in three of his last eight games for the Rockets.
Meanwhile, Alperen Sengun has added just 8.6 rebounds per game this year. But his line is sitting at 9.5. Sengun has only reached ten rebounds in 31% of games this season. He’s also earned eight or fewer rebounds in three of his four games.
Finally, Jabari Smith is having a very inconsistent start to his career. But he’s taking more than five threes per game. He’s been completely off recently, but the Lakers usually give great looks from downtown defensively. As long as the volume is there, Smith should be able to sneak in two threes in tonight’s game.
After all. Smith has hit two threes in 64% of games this year, but we’re getting his line at -104. So I truly think there’s value there on Smith to bang in two threes.
