The Nets and Bucks may be the two best teams in the Eastern Conference. With James Harden’s injury, we might have more of an evenly matched series, though I still expect the Nets to win the series (and NBA Championship) with relative ease. Players are where my focus will be today. I’m looking to score big on a Same Game Parlay. Right now, FanDuel Sportsbook is offering a risk-free $10 bet on a Same Game Parlay. Put together the parlay below and if it wins, great! If it loses, as long as the bet is $10 or less, you’ll be refunded. 

I’m going to start with some point totals. I expect Durant to shoulder more of the scoring load, so I’m going to take a risk and go for 35+ points with him at +134. I like this as an option to start our parlay out with some plus money. Next, I’m turning to Joe Harris getting 10+ points. He has had one game in the playoffs at less than 10 points, and two games at exactly 10. I think with Harden out, the defense will give him more attention, but he should also get more looks. On the Bucks' side, I expect Middleton to rebound from his poor shooting performance in Game 1 and put up at least 20 points. 

I’m going to add in Brook Lopez under 0.5 three pointers made. Lopez shot only one three in the first game, and he missed it. To be clear, he can knock down multiple threes in a game. Lately, though, he has been playing a bit more of the traditional center position. One of the Nets' biggest weaknesses is a good center. Lopez could easily feast down low. I expect them to exploit that matchup. I also expect him to get over 5.5 rebounds because he should be in a prime spot to grab them.

Speaking of rebounds, I’m taking Giannis to get over 12.5 rebounds. I think 12 rebounds is probably the most likely outcome, but all it takes is one more rebound, and at +100, we actually boost our odds by +1090 by adding it in at this point. 

Same Game Parlay:

Total: +1791 - $10 pays $179.06

Feeling lucky? Add in Kyrie (+550) for the first point scored in the game. That changes the odds to +11504 where $10 gets you $1150.37… and if you lose you’ll still be refunded!
