Wednesday NBA Parlay Picks: Bet Pelicans, Lakers

Every night the NBA is in action, we can combine multiple bets for a big win. However, it’s often difficult to weed out the top spots for NBA parlay picks when the schedule has as many games as Wednesday night. Luckily, I’ve done that research for you. The Clippers blew it on Tuesday night, and our parlay came up one leg short. We hit on Jarrett Allen and the Cavaliers, but the Clippers decided to rest Kawhi Leonard and deny us a win. Still, our NBA predictions have been on fire since the All-Star break.

We’ve had plenty of success building our parlays using a combination of NBA ATS picks and NBA player props.

Nine games are scheduled to tip off on Wednesday night. I’m loading up a three-leg parlay with so many matchups and NBA odds today to break down and select our picks.

Let’s get into the best NBA expert predictions for Wednesday.


1. NBA Parlay Pick: Pistons C Jalen Duren to Record a Double-Double

Assuming he plays, I’m adding Jalen Duren, who has been a cash cow for us all season. In his last game, he left in the first quarter after taking an elbow to the face and losing a tooth. Reports suggest he will be active tonight in Atlanta. This has undoubtedly been one of my top NBA bets online this season. Duren has averaged a double-double this season with 13.8 points and 12 rebounds. The second-year center for the Pistons is quietly enjoying a breakout season. He has a double-double in 41 of 55 starts — a 74.5% hit rate. This bet is still excellent for helping build our parlay odds.

The 20-year-old center is coming off a dominant performance against the Washington Wizards, where he posted 20 points and 17 rebounds. Tonight, the Detroit Pistons take on the Hawks, a bottom-10 rebounding team in the NBA that is giving up the seventh-most rebounds per game to opposing centers. We can fire him up again with confidence for the first leg of our parlay.



2. NBA Parlay Pick: Pelicans (-4) vs Magic

The Pelicans host the Orlando Magic and are small 4-point favorites. I understand you may be hesitant to fade the Magic, who are the best team against the spread (ATS) this season (48-27-0), but hear me out. The Pelicans are just a little behind, going 41-33-1 ATS this season. The Pelicans are in a typical bounce-back spot after losing two straight against the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns.

New Orleans is an NBA-best 19-9-1 ATS after a loss. The Pelicans are still without Brandon Ingram, but this is their fifth straight home game. Over this recent stretch without Ingram, they have faced some of the best teams in the NBA (Phoenix, Boston, Milwaukee and Oklahoma City). This is Orlando’s first road game since March 15. The Pelicans should come out motivated because they sit just one game ahead of the No. 7 seed and the Play-In.



3. NBA Parlay Pick: Lakers (-12½) at Wizards

If you’ve been riding along this season, you’ll know we don’t often back double-digit road favorites. This isn’t the best spot for the Lakers, who are playing on the second night of a back-to-back with travel after they played in Toronto on Tuesday. It’s also not a great spot for the Washington Wizards, who got a surprising win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

The Wizards’ injury report is exceptionally long, and they are one of the premier tanking teams right now. Guys like Kyle Kuzma and Tyus Jones could be ruled out again. Lakers head coach Darvin Ham has already informed us that he expects LeBron James and Anthony Davis to play tonight on the back-to-back after both stars sat out the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s blowout win in Toronto. The Lakers have struggled with back-to-backs, but the Wizards have as well. Washington is 3-9 ATS on the second night of a back-to-back and 11-19-1 ATS as a home underdog. Davis should dominate this matchup and lead the Lakers to another big win to cap off this East Coast road trip.



4. NBA Parlay Pick: Lakers SF LeBron James to Record a Double-Double (+104)

We’re witnessing history every time LeBron James takes the floor. He’s on pace to be the first player at 39 years old to be an All-NBA player. I’m expecting a dominant showing from Anthony Davis in this soft matchup in Washington. I also think LeBron can grab 10 rebounds or 10 assists and notch his 25th double-double this season.

The Wizards allow the most rebounds per game and give up the second-most assists per game. In three games against the Wizards alongside Davis, LeBron has one double-double, and earlier this season, he finished just one assist shy. James defies his age and has seven double-doubles over his last 12 games. At this price, I like increasing our odds with another masterful performance from the greatest player of this generation.
