Our NBA expert picks have been scorching hot, delivering consistent wins as we closed the regular season! I’m back and ready to maintain this hot streak with the start of the high-stakes NBA Play-In Tournament games on Wednesday evening.

The teams that finish Nos. 1-6 in the standings of each conference are guaranteed a playoff spot. The teams that finish Nos. 7-10 in the standings will enter the Play-In Tournament. These teams will battle for the seventh and eighth playoff seeds, which are crucial as they determine the teams’ positions and potential matchups in the playoffs. Our doubleheader tips off at 7:00 pm EST when Joel Embiid leads the Philadelphia 76ers against Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat. The second matchup pits DeMar DeRozan and the Chicago Bulls against Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks in a win-or-go-home scenario, adding even more excitement and pressure to the game.

I’ve identified the top spots on Wednesday for our NBA picks and parlay bets. As the Play-In Tournament ignites the playoff atmosphere, there’s a plethora of bets to explore.

I will adhere to our winning strategy, which has proven successful all season, and construct our best NBA parlay today using NBA ATS picks and player props. I’ve meticulously reviewed all the odds and have assembled a three-leg parlay, ensuring these expert picks and parlay predictions are backed by thorough analysis.


Wednesday NBA Parlay Picks

Philadelphia 76ers -5½ vs Miami Heat

In the first game, we have the 76ers hosting the Miami Heat. The winner of this game will be the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and will take on the New York Knicks in the first round of the playoffs. These teams split the regular season series 2-2, with the Heat taking the first two meetings and the Sixers the final two of the season. The only matchup in which nearly all players were available was the final one on April 4, which saw Philadelphia win 109-105 in Miami.

Of course, the key to this game is the status and availability of the reigning MVP, Joel Embiid. He returned for five games before he appeared to tweak his knee last Friday, but he is expected to play on Wednesday night. Philadelphia will go all out to win this game because they want to avoid an extra game for Embiid. The 76ers come into the postseason red-hot. They have covered the spread in ten consecutive games and have won eight in a row. This impressive run of form, coupled with the return of their star player, makes them a strong pick for this game.

Philadelphia was 31-8 this season with Embiid and an ugly 16-27 without him this season. The 76ers have done an excellent job assembling veterans around Embiid and Tyrese Maxey. They have brought in guys with valuable playoff experience, like Kyle Lowry, Buddy Hield, Nicolas Batum, and Cam Payne. The Heat will be without Terry Rozier. I don’t believe they will have enough scoring to keep up with the 76ers. Trust the process with Philadelphia and Embiid’s health!


Chicago Bulls -3 vs Atlanta Hawks

In the second matchup, we will back the home team again. The Chicago Bulls and Atlanta Hawks are evenly matched, but I’m fading the ten seed. In three years of the current Play-In format, ten seeds have gone 0-7, including the Warriors losing to the Sacramento Kings in Tuesday’s Western Conference Play-In game. The Bulls are playing more in sync right now than Atlanta. The Hawks just got Trae Young back from an injury one week ago, but I think he’ll throw off what was working with Dejounte Murray at the helm.

The Hawks are missing too many key pieces. They are without Jalen Johnson, Onyeka Okongwu, and Saddiq Bey. Johnson’s absence will be glaring. The Hawks lost six consecutive games to close out the regular season. Atlanta was the worst team in the NBA ATS at 29-53 and the worst team covering the spread on the road at 14-26! The Hawks allowed the second-most points per game this season. Without key defenders like Johnson and Okongwu, the Bulls will have just enough to win this game and survive to play the loser of the 76ers and Heat matchup—Bank on the Bulls.


Hawks Clint Clint Capela to Record a Double-Double (-182)

To boost our parlay odds a bit, I’m firing up a double-double wager. Clint Capela is the lone big-man presence the Hawks will have Wednesday night in Chicago. Atlanta is without Onyeka Okongwu and Jalen Johnson. With both young guys out, Capela has taken on a more significant role. This season, Capela averages 11.5 points and 10.6 rebounds.

He has recorded a double-double in 10 of his last 12 and 15 of 24 games without Johnson in the lineup this season. He has a double-double in 13 of his previous 15 games against the Bulls and five straight on the road in Chicago. The Bulls are decent at defending opposing centers thanks to the duo of Nikola Vucevic and Andre Drummond, but they are in the bottom half of the NBA in rebounds allowed per game. Drummond is not expected to play, and Capela has finished with a double-double in seven straight matchups with Vucevic.
