Friday NBA Same-Game Parlay: Pounce on Pacers

Our NBA predictions have been consistently successful, delivering wins as we closed the regular season. On Thursday night, we cashed a massive three-leg parlay, with the Minnesota Timberwolves winning the first quarter and the game at home, along with the total going under! It was a sweat-free win and a testament to our accurate analysis.

This string of successes has given us significant momentum heading into the high-stakes second-round playoff game between the Pacers and Knicks. I’m confident we can win big again tonight. On Friday night, we tip off at 8:30 p.m. ET with a Game 6 clash between Jalen Brunson’s New York Knicks and Tyrese Haliburton’s Indiana Pacers.

Best Friday NBA Bets

Indiana Pacers 1st Quarter Moneyline (-170)

Tonight’s matchup for the Pacers is identical to what the Timberwolves were facing on Thursday night. Minnesota was in a win-or-go-home scenario and the Wolves delivered in front of their home crowd. This is an absolute desperation spot for the Pacers. Luckily for Indiana, tonight’s game will be played in front of their home crowd.

Indiana is also in a win-or-go-home scenario, so I expect the Pacers to come out with a fire lit under them early. Indiana was a much better team at home in the first quarter this season, going 28-14-4, including the playoffs. That’s opposed to on the road, where the Pacers went just 15-28-4 in the first quarter!

Indiana will throw the kitchen sink at the Knicks and attempt to replicate what it did in Games 3 and 4 at home. The Pacers should come out and give the Knicks their best punch.



Indiana Pacers Moneyline (-245) vs. New York Knicks

I’m rolling with the Pacers at home in Game 6 at Gainbridge Fieldhouse tonight. I expect the fans to be electric with the Pacers’ backs against the wall. The Pacers were a top-10 team at home during the regular season and have gone 31-15 in their arena, including the playoffs.

The Pacers were one of the best teams in the Association in bouncing back after a loss with a 24-11 record. Over the last three seasons, teams coming off a loss in the second round and playing at home have gone 21-9 ATS. Over the last week of the playoffs, favorites coming off a loss have gone 4-1!

In Game 5, the Knicks had a comfortable 16-point lead early in the third quarter. Then, Myles Turner was left open on three consecutive possessions at the top of the key, and he splashed three shots from beyond the arc to cut the lead to seven points. The Pacers could have identified this mismatch and will utilize Turner’s ability as a spot-up shooter, which would open up the scoring lanes later in the game for Indiana.

The Pacers have shown signs of life in this series and took both games at home. I expect them to protect their home floor again and force a Game 7 this Sunday at Madison Square Garden!



Pacers C Myles Turner (At Least) 20 Points (+137)

With our final leg, I’m going to roll with the Indiana Pacers’ big man to boost the odds of this same-game parlay. Myles Turner led Indiana in scoring in Game 1, finishing with 23 points and shooting 50% from the field. Turner has scored at least 20 points in four of his last six career home games against the Knicks. He scored 21 points in the first home game of this series.

New York’s devastating injury news has mounted up all season. First, it was Julius Randle who was out for the remainder of the year. In the playoffs, the Knicks have lost Bojan Bogdanovic and Mitchell Robinson while OG Anunoby remains out tonight. The Knicks are losing the battle of attrition.

Robinson and Anunoby are elite defenders, and with them unavailable, an athletic big like Turner should be looking to score against Isaiah Hartenstein. Hartenstein has been a revelation for the Knicks this season, but Turner is skilled enough to post another 20-point game against him.

I touched on his ability to turn the tides tonight with his shooting. Turner is long and athletic for a big man who can shoot from the perimeter. He has knocked down at least two shots from beyond the arc in five of his last six matchups with the Knicks. This is key because the Knicks allowed the third-most threes per game to opposing centers.



Turner has scored 20 points in five of 11 playoff games this season. The Pacers will need Turner to get buckets if they want to force a Game 7.
