NBA Same Game Parlay Odds & Pick
The Parlay: (+361)
- Russell Westbrook Over 15.5 Points (-110)
- Paul George 4+ Made 3-Point Shots (+185)
Russell Westbrook Over 15.5 Points (-110)
The Timberwolves have really struggled defending opposing point guards as they have allowed them to record 25.8 points, 7.8 assists and 3.1 made 3-point shots per game. This is a very favorable spot for the Clippers’ new addition Russell Westbrook as he has shot the ball well since joining his new team. He is averaging 17 points per contest and shooting 56.5 percent from the floor across those two games.
If Westbrook can be aggressive getting in the lane, it should set him up for success because the Timberwolves rank in the bottom 10 in paint points per game. The Wolves are also sending opponents to the line 26 times per game as they have been foul-prone (ranking dead last in the league). Look for Westbrook to keep the offense flowing and call his own number quite a bit.
Paul George 4+ Made 3-Point Shots (+185)
Paul George had an uncharacteristically poor shooting night against the Nuggets from beyond the arc, going 0-4. He has been struggling as of late with his accuracy from deep, and this is his second game in which he didn’t make a 3. Despite that off night, George is still averaging 38.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc on 7.7 attempts from deep a game.
This looks like a prime spot for George to regain his stroke versus a Timberwolves squad that ranks 22nd in opponent made 3s per game (12.8) and 22nd in opponent 3-point percentage (36.8%).
Looking back at his last six head-to-heads against the Timberwolves, George has made two or more 3s in five of the six contests and three or more 3s in four contests. There are some intriguing alternate 3-point milestone bets with six or more made 3s at +925 or seven or more at +1550; however, for the sake of the parlay, let’s keep things at a lower number which still offers value at four or more at +185.
