Giann-is or Isn’t? NBA Parlay Features Pacers vs Bucks Battle

The biggest news for Tuesday’s slate of NBA playoff games is whether Giannis Antetokounmpo will play.

However, we have made up our mind on the Pacers-Bucks Game 2 regardless of his availability, and it’s our featured Tuesday NBA parlay game.

We have NBA picks on all three Tuesday playoff games, kicking off with a value -3 line for the Timberwolves to beat the Suns. Click here to view the latest NBA odds.


The Sun is Setting and It’s Not Coming Back Up

We don’t rate the Suns very highly, so it’s no surprise that we’re including the Timberwolves -3 in our NBA parlay picks.

There is nothing wrong with the likes of Kevin Durant and Devin Booker as individual NBA players, but we don’t think they gel well as a team.

That has been the case with Booker over the last few years, and Durant needed an already superior Golden State Warriors team to get his championship rings.


Criticism aside, the Timberwolves are being massively underrated with NBA odds. Despite winning 120-95 in Game 1 in what was the most one-sided playoff game so far, they are only -150 with moneyline markets.

Where is the respect? They ended the regular season at 56-26, and boast a home record of 31-11. That’s a great mark, and we can’t see the Suns evening the series at 1-1 on Tuesday.

This is a great spot for bettors to get their NBA parlays off to a winning start.

Pacers Picked to Pull Off Road Win

As NBA betting markets suggest, the Indiana Pacers have every chance of beating the Bucks on the road.

The Greek Freak, based on NBA odds, is unlikely to play. The Bucks are only -1 favorites despite winning 109-94 in Game1, which leads us to believe the Pacers are a better bet.

Regardless of if Antetokounmpo plays, we’re happy to take the Pacers at the +1 line. They have enough firepower on offense to stay with any NBA team, and Game 1 was an anomaly.

Scoring 94 points didn’t impress anyone, including Tyrese Haliburton.

“It’s easy to just say we missed shots and now we’re nervous or whatever,” Haliburton said. “Whatever you all are going to run with, it doesn’t matter. I just feel like we missed shots, at the end of the day. The ball wasn’t hopping. And they made shots in the first half and that kind of dug us a hole.”

We expect the shots to go down at Fiserv Forum, and the Pacers have every chance to tie the series. Take the +1 line for a team that went 4-1 against the Bucks in the regular season.

NBA Pick: Indiana Pacers +1


Choo Choo! All Aboard the Mavericks Hype Train

Believing in the hype doesn’t always translate into bettors making money, but we’re going to the well for one more go with the Dallas Mavericks.

They couldn’t have been more disappointing in Game 1, losing 109-97. The Mavericks have now scored fewer than 100 points in three consecutive games, and that’s what they get for resting their star players to close out the regular season.

However, with that game under their belt, we’re happy to take the sportsbook line of -2. Bettors might struggle to take that line given the Game 1 result, but this should be a closely contested series.

The Mavs are easily good enough to tie the series. They just need the supporting cast to offer up something and not rely on Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving to do all the scoring.

Spreading the floor could make it happen, so keep the faith with the Mavericks, for at least one more game.

NBA Pick: Dallas Mavericks -2½
