After yesterday’s NBA In-Season Tournament Group Play, we’re back with regularly scheduled programming today in the NBA.
There were mixed feelings about last night’s In-Season Tournament play, mainly around the format and the court. But overall, the NBA got more eyes on the screen. So I’d say it’s a win!
Anyway, I’ve added two same-game parlays for tonight’s NBA action. Let’s try and earn some profit over the weekend!
Saturday’s Best NBA Same Game Parlay Bets
(Odds courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook)
Utah Jazz vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
- Leg 1: Jaden McDaniels Over 9.5 Points (+102)
- Leg 2: Anthony Edwards Over 4.5 Rebounds (-142)
- Leg 3: Jordan Clarkson Over 3.5 Rebounds (+100)
Jaden McDaniels has played in two games during the NBA season. In those two games, he’s only averaged nine points in 22.5 minutes per game. He scored 12 in his first game but added only six in his second game due to five personal fouls. McDaniels won’t take a high volume of shots. There are plenty of other guys in Minnesota who will do that. But he’s efficient and a capable three-point threat.
McDaniels hit this line in 64% of games last season and 70% of his previous 20 games dating back to last year.
Meanwhile, Anthony Edwards has earned 5.8 rebounds per game this season. His line is still at just 4.5. That’s because he just had a two-rebound game against the Nuggets. But against the Jazz, it should be easier to grab some rebounds. Edwards hit this line in 67% of games last season and will average over five rebounds per game this year.
Finally, Jordan Clarkson has averaged 4.2 rebounds per game. In his last two, Clarkson has brought down six rebounds in each game, to go along with 20+ points and 5+ assists. Clarkson’s doing it all for the Jazz and playing over 30 minutes a game.
Parlay Odds: +575
Chicago Bulls vs. Denver Nuggets
- Leg 1: Zach LaVine Under 24.5 Points (-108)
- Leg 2: Zach LaVine Over 3.5 Rebounds (-158)
- Leg 3: Nikola Jokic Under 1.5 Threes (-196)
Zach LaVine leads the Bulls in points with 24 per game. But he’s only shooting 41.5% from the field and hasn’t hit 25 or more points in every game but one. In the one where he scored more than 25, he added 51 against the Pistons in a loss. LaVine’s hit the Over in only 17% of games this season. He also didn’t even hit the Over in 50% of games last year.
However, he’s still earned over 35 minutes a game for Chicago this year. That’ll help his rebounding. He’s brought down 4.5 rebounds per game and has hit this line in 83% of games this year. Even last year, he nailed this line in 66% of games. It’s not easy rebounding against Denver, but LaVine will be on the court for much of the game. The ball will find his lap.
Lastly, we’ll grab Nikola Jokic to go Under 1.5 threes. He went 2-for-2 in his last game but has only averaged 1.5 threes per game this year. Jokic is also shooting above 40% from downtown, which he never did in an entire season. So, we’ll eventually get some regression. He nailed two or more threes in only 29% of games last year and hit this line in only 33% of games this year.
Parlay Odds: +397
