NBA Parlay Picks for Wednesday: Trust the Talent

Wednesday's NBA Parlay

Myles Turner's poor shooting night is the only thing that kept us from perfection last night, with our multi-team parlay and another same-game parlay all making us a nice profit. What hurts more, is the Indiana Pacers won the game, and we hit on the Domantas Sabonis prop bet too, alas, we move on and try again today.

NBA Parlay Breakdown

First up, we have the Philadelphia 76ers against the Orlando Magic, and of course, we're backing the 76ers to get the win. It feels like the Magic are playing every day at the moment, I know that's not the case, but it certainly feels that way. Anyway, Cole Anthony is listed as questionable for Orlando, but should he return to the floor tonight, he will be a massive boost to the Magic's offense, taking some of the pressure of Gary Harris and rookie Franz Wagner. The 76ers are also back to having some injury worries, with Tyrese Maxey, Shake Milton, and Matisse Thybulle all out for tonight's game, which will seriously hinder the team's perimeter defense. However, the Magic have lost 6 of their last 7 games, and even if Anthony does return to the floor, will still struggle to contain Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid. Factor in the Sixers 1st ranked offense over the last two weeks, compared to the Magic's 21st ranked defense, along with the difference in quality between the two rosters, and you come away from this game feeling incredibly confident for Philadelphia.

Next up, we've got another Indiana Pacers game, and like yesterday, we're backing their opponents. The Brooklyn Nets are on a three-game losing streak and don't look to be the convincing championship contenders we thought they were, but they still have some of the best players in the NBA and can be borderline unstoppable when they're on their game. Interestingly, Kyrie Irving isn't on the Nets injury report for today, which could be something to watch over the next 8 hours or so, but Brooklyn also has a full squad minus Joe Harris, so we're likely to see something of a statement game from their roster. The Pacers, on the other hand, will roll with a similar rotation to what we saw last night against the New York Knicks, unfortunately for Indiana, that rotation isn't good enough to hang with the Nets, especially if the big three are playing. So, we're backing the Nets to take care of business tonight, and hoping that we get to see their first-choice roster for the first time this season.

Finally, we are back with the Utah Jazz, a team I have been steadfast in my support of throughout these parlays, and that's not changing today. Utah has a couple of players with question marks over their heads in terms of participating in tonight's game, but we can assume Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert will get the green light, along with bench scorer Jordan Clarkson. The Denver Nuggets don't have that luxury though, with some of their roster our indefinitely, others in health and safety protocols. The Nuggets have still been finding ways to win games despite their health issues, and it's time we started discussing Nikola Jokic as a repeat MVP candidate - yes, he's been that good. But, Jokic isn't going to guarantee victory tonight, not against a Jazz team who loves to push the pace, and will likely be taking shots before Denver's defense gets set up in the halfcourt. If you're wondering how good Utah is, they played 13 games in December and won 11 of them, and have won 27 of their 37 contests this season. I can't back a hobbled Nuggets team to defeat a powerhouse like the Jazz, especially in their current form. As such, we're running with the Utah money line to round out this parlay.

Boston Celtics vs. San Antonio Spurs Same-Game Parlay

  • Celtics Moneyline
  • Celtics -4
  • Odds: -102

Click Here for Celtics vs. Spurs Odds

The Boston Celtics face the San Antonio Spurs for the second time this season, with San Antonio holding the advantage after coming away victorious in their November contest. However, the Celtics' offense has vastly improved since then, well sometimes it looks improved, and the team will be energized by the return of Jayson Tatum, who has missed the last 10 days due to health and safety protocols. Robert Williams is listed as probable for today's game, while Romeo Langford and Aaron Nesmith are both questionable to participate - however, this is the healthiest the Celtics' have looked in a while, and they will look to take full advantage of that tonight. It's worth noting that the Spurs win against Boston earlier this season actually sparked an uptick in performances from their roster, and they may be hoping to take another step in their development tonight. It's always hard to bet against a Greg Popovich team, but the Celtics have a deeper roster, with a more versatile group of guys, and they're also a team who likes to get payback for a loss. I'm backing the Celtics to figure it out and grind out a victory tonight, but as you can see by the spread we're taking, I expect the game to be uncomfortably close.

Dallas Mavericks vs. Golden State Warriors Same-Game Parlay

  • Warriors Moneyline
  • Stephen Curry Over 4.5 Threes
  • Draymond Green Under 8.5 Assists
  • Odds: +284

Click Here for Mavericks vs Warriors Odds

Let's start with the player props, which I feel should be self-explanatory. Stephen Curry to make 5 threes or more is always a realistic possibility, in fact, the greatest shooter of all time has been averaging 5.3 makes per game for the last two seasons and 4.7 makes per game over his last 10 outings. So, I feel confident backing him to cover the prop bet we've placed on him. Draymond Green, who I am higher on than most, is a picture-perfect point forward, but after returning from some time on the injury list, will take a minute to reach his usual level of play - oh and the Mavericks will be clogging passing lanes like crazy, so we're backing Green to sit on or under 8 assists for tonight's contest.

Now, for the game, I'm expecting the Golden State Warriors to come out on the attack and take advantage of Kristaps Prozingis' absence, which when coupled with Willie-Cauley Stein and Bob Marjanovic both being out, really hurts the Mavericks ability to play with size. Luka Doncic is due for a big night, as the ball will be magnetically attached to his hands on offense, but the Warriors are the best defensive team in the NBA according to the season-long defensive rating and sit second in net rating - they're no slouches at stopping stars from getting hot. The Warriors also play an unselfish brand of basketball that will get all of their roster involved, even if Curry usually ends up running the show. Dallas has struggled to find any consistency this season, and now, with their core big-man rotation all on the injury report, I can't look past the Warriors adding another win to their tally.
