Dame Lillard has had moments in this series that make you truly love basketball. The way he can get to a spot, stop, and shoot is beautiful. Say what you will about the quality of the NBA product – it is poor – but there are still players who can make you watch in awe on any given night. Two nights ago, it was Lillard, last night was Luka. There are some very juicy numbers on the line tonight for this game, which makes me focus entirely on a Same Game Parlay to try and make it a bit more in my favor. Making it more enticing is that FanDuel is offering a risk-free play of up to $10 on one Same Game Parlay bet. Simply put together a bet and risk up to $10 and get your money back if it loses.
Aaron Gordon has been… underwhelming for the Nuggets. I’m not sure what anyone expected they would get from him, but he has not been great. Not that he ever really was. I think most people only know that he won a dunk contest. Anyway, tonight his point total is listed at 12.5 – which is basically his career average. In this series, he’s had four of the five games of 13+ points. I like him to continue that trend, and he has a favorable matchup and should be able to get to 13 in what I expect to be another high scoring game.
Speaking of high score… another one to focus in on is the total, currently at 227.5. In the first five games, we have four of them going over this total. I’m taking it once again, the over 227.5 at -112. I expect the pace to be fast and the baskets to be plentiful.
Jokic has had one game this series with over 6.5 assists. His total for tonight sits right there. I’m taking the under on this. Lately, he has been involved in the offense, obviously, but it feels as if he isn’t getting his teammates as involved as he once did. Under 6.5 assists is the play at -114.
I’m going to add in CJ McCollum to have 2+ threes in the game at -600. Never would I play that otherwise, but putting it in with the rest of these adds value of +107. He’s hit two threes or more in every game so far.
Back to Dame to close out our parlay. I can’t pick him to score a ridiculous amount. I think he either gets over 40 or under 30. I’d lean towards his over, but I don’t have much to support that. Instead, I’m going to take him getting 6+ assists at -800. He’s been averaging 9 assists a game, and adding the 6+ assists to the game puts another +105 in our parlay. If you want to get crazy and add Dame to score 40+, go for it.
