NBA same game parlay
Indiana Pacers vs. Memphis Grizzlies
If you choose all three player props, you need 66 points from three players. As far as I know Steven Adams is out. But he was never a significant contributor on offense anyway.
However, it must be noted that Desmond Bane is currently in doubt. Because of this, Memphis players have higher scores for their props.
Yes Morant has not scored 31 points since January 11th. If Bane is out, Morant will still get the same looks and shots. Meanwhile, Jaren Jackson Jr. has only managed 18 points or more in two of his last eight games. He was extremely poor off the field, shooting 9-for-28 in the last two games.
After all, Dillon Brooks has reached 17 points just once in his last ten games. In January, he shot 35.8% from field and 22.7% from downtown. He also earns 1.1 free throws per game. Take all unders here. These supports are way too high.
Betting odds: +609

New Orleans Pelicans at Milwaukee Bucks
The Pelicans were on a slide with Zion Williamson out of the lineup. They welcomed back Brandon Ingram this week, although the results are yet to turn. Milwaukee also got its stars back this week. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton returned and the Bucks ran 132.7 points per game straight away in three contests. Two of those games included 150 and 141 points against two of the league’s worst defenses in Detroit and Indiana.
Even during this cold spell for New Orleans, the defense has played at a competitive level. Adding Ingram to the lineup will only improve this unit. A top defense should slow Milwaukee even at near full strength, as we’ll see on Sunday. The Pelicans had one of the best 3-point defenses and the Bucks relied somewhat on making 3-point shots, the fifth-highest 3-point rate in the league. This could make for a long day for the Milwaukee offense.
As the Pelicans get closer to full strength, the offense should continue to improve as well. That line is just too big for where these teams actually stand and too reactionary to recent results. For Zion, we’d be looking at a spread of two or three points. Of course he won’t be there on Sunday but the Pelicans are still good enough to cover such a range.
Pick: 1.1u on Pelicans +10 (-110)

First basket scorer
Bam Adebayo (+420)
The Heat recently reversed it, going 17-8 in their last 25 games and moving up to sixth place. Defense was the core of this team with the fourth-best Adjusted Defensive Rating.
They get a cheap matchup against the bottom-feeder Hornets, who have lost seven of their last ten.
Charlotte lacks low post presence, which will work out well for Adebayo. Miami will feed him the ball from the start so he can grab the first basket and put up a great stat line.

NBA Prop Bets
Giannis Antetokounmpo OVER 31.5 points (-115)
The Bucks had played an inconsistent ball that forced them out of the second seed. During that time Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton have both had injuries but with both back in the line-up they have won five of the last six.
Speaking of injuries to their stars, that’s what the pelicans have to deal with. They are 3-10 as Zion Williamson was sidelined with a foot injury and has lost seven straight games.
This lack of low post will allow Giannis to put up some great numbers. He’s averaged 34.3 points in his last three games, and the Pelicans allow a league-worse percentage of 67.5 field goals on the sidelines.

We round off the day with our best college basketball bets.
College Basketball Best Bets
Selection for college basketball games
Michigan at Penn State
There are some solid Big Ten matchups tonight, and Michigan at Penn State is another among teams looking from the outside in. This is a big game for both teams’ tournament hopes.
Michigan is one of the most fickle teams in the nation, ranking 357th in the consistency metric. The Wolverines care about the ball, but their offense sometimes doesn’t work.
Penn State shoots a ridiculous number of threes and actually ranks 356th in the approach metric. Over 43 percent of their points come from beyond the arc, ranking fourth in the nation. They handle the ball better than Michigan and rank 20th nationwide in shooting.
If Penn State is down, this could get ugly. There are a lot of results for this game but I have faith in Penn State’s ability to score as they should get a shot from almost every possession.
Game: Penn State -3.5

NHL game selection
Boston Bruins (+106) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (-128) | O/U 6 (-104/-118)
The Bruins are at a point they haven’t been all season, losing two games in a row.
The thing is, they don’t play badly – they don’t get overshot, lose faceoffs or get blown out – two defeats by one goal, including allowing a tie goal three seconds from time and losing in overtime.
It’s not the time to panic after losing two tough street games.
Tonight sees the third tough duel in game four of this five game road trip.
One could argue that the Hurricanes are one of the best rosters in the league.
Their offense was incredible, with the best expected goal percentage, and their defense continued to be one of the better units with the fewest expected goals conceded.
Carolina has bounced back from four straight losses and won six of their previous seven this week.
Whether it Antti Raanta or Frederik Andersen against Linus Ullmark on both sides, this will be an exciting and physical duel. This game could go either way, and that’s why I’m taking the sub.
Selection: Under 6 (-118)
