Dallas Mavericks @ Philadelphia 76ers – 7pm ET

In a night full of incredible games this one is certainly going to be one of the best. Two of the top teams in the National Basketball Association are set to face off in the city of brotherly love. As the Dallas Mavericks and Luka Doncic take on the Philadelphia 76ers and James Harden. The Mavericks come into this game with a record of 43-26 on the season. Philadelphia currently has a record of 42-26 on the season. 

My first pick for this game is the incredible Luka Doncic. The Dallas Mavericks superstar has been putting up Most Valuable Player award winner type numbers this season. I don’t see any reason why it will change in this huge game as I expect Luka to have another monster performance. He has no trouble shining when the lights are the brightest which is why he’s known as one of the most reliable players in the league at such a young age. 

My second pick for this game is the young Tyrese Maxey. Ever since James Harden was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers at the trade deadline from the Brooklyn Nets, Maxey has been on a scoring roll and it will likely continue in this game. I look for this one to be an offensive shootout from both teams as it will come down to the final buzzer and Maxey will be huge in deciding the outcome of this one. As for my picks for this game, I’m taking both Doncic and Maxey to go over their points total.

NBA Parlay Pick: Doncic & Maxey over points

Los Angeles Lakers @ Toronto Raptors – 7:30pm ET

The Los Angeles Lakers can’t seem to buy a win lately. They were crushed by the Toronto Raptors recently. The Lakers are in danger of missing the playoffs if their losing ways continue. They come into this game with a record of 29-40 on the season and will likely end the year with a losing record but still make the play-in round. The Toronto Raptors are coming into this one with a record of 39-30, which puts them in seventh place in the Eastern Conference at the moment. They are only a few years removed from an NBA championship and still have the pieces to win another one. 

My first pick for this game is LeBron James, he has been trying to single-handedly lift the Lakers to victory. He has been on a scoring run as of late and is easily putting up 30 points a game down the stretch. He will have to keep it up otherwise he and the Los Angeles Lakers will see another early exit in the NBA Playoffs again this season. He is one of the safest bets for the remainder of the regular season in my opinion as he will do everything he can to get the Lakers another championship ring. 

My second pick for this game is a Toronto Raptors victory. As I look for them to beat the Los Angeles Lakers once again. The Raptors have been playing well this year and as long as their all-star point guard Fred Van Vleet can stay healthy they could potentially cause some problems for other teams in the playoffs this season. I think being at home will give them a slight advantage to get them over top of the Lakers in this one.

NBA Parlay Pick: James over points & Raptors Moneyline

Memphis Grizzlies @ Atlanta Hawks – 7:30pm ET

The Memphis Grizzlies have been playing great this season as they are in second place in the Western Conference. They have been led by potential Most Valuable Player award winner Ja Morant for the entire season as they come into this game with a record of 48-22. Meanwhile, things have not been going well for the Atlanta Hawks and their young superstar Trae Young as the Hawks come into this game outside of the playoff race with a record of 34-35 on the season. 

My first pick in this one is the previously mentioned Ja Morant as I expect him to put up another big game to try and get the Grizzlies another big win on the year. Morant has been playing lights out all season long whenever he has been on the court. It may lead to him becoming this season’s Most Valuable Player award winner, which would likely be the first of many to come in his young career. I am taking Ja Morant to go over his points total in this as I’m expecting an offensive shootout between Morant and my next pick. 

My second pick for this one is the previously mentioned Trae Young. I think Young will also try and take this game over and lead the Atlanta Hawks to a much-needed victory. They will have to almost win out down the stretch if they even want to get into the play-in round for this year’s NBA playoffs. It is quite clear at this point that at some point soon Young is going to need some help if he wants to turn this franchise into a winner.

NBA Parlay Pick: Morant & Young over points

Denver Nuggets @ Cleveland Cavaliers – 7:30pm ET

Two playoff teams will meet in this Eastern Conference vs Western Conference matchup on Friday evening in Cleveland. One of these teams was expected to be good as they are led by the reigning Most Valuable Player award winner Nikola Jokic. However, the other team has been the shock of the season as they are loading up and looking to make a deep run in the NBA playoffs with their young core and veteran supporting cast. 

My first pick for this one is the previously mentioned Nikola Jokic as I look for Jokic to have a monster game to lead the Denver Nuggets to victory over a slumping Cavs team. I think Jokic is going to have a monster rebounding game as the Cavaliers will be without the size of Jarrett Allen inside to keep Jokic off the glass. The reigning Most Valuable Player award winner will be looking to add another this year and become the second straight player to win back-to-back MVP awards. 

My second pick for this game is the Cavs all star point guard Darius Garland. He has been one of the best young guards in the league this season, as he is having a breakout campaign and will only improve from here on out. Garland is most of the reason the Cavaliers are in the great position they are in as they are years ahead of their rebuilding schedule. I expect Garland to step up in this one and have another big game and go over his total points mark.  

NBA Parlay Pick: Jokic over rebounds & Garland over points

Chicago Bulls @ Phoenix Suns – 10pm ET

This is going to be one of the best games of the evening as two of the top teams in the National Basketball Association are set to face off in the Valley Of The Sun on Friday evening. As the Chicago Bulls travel to Arizona to take on the league-leading Phoenix Suns. Both of these teams have the potential to make deep runs in the NBA playoffs and then they might end up meeting in the NBA finals. Chicago has a record of 41-28 while the Suns have a record of 56-14. 

My first pick for this game is the Bulls superstar Zach LaVine as I look for him to have a monster game in this huge regular-season matchup. LaVine has looked great this year and has put himself in consideration for the Most Valuable Player award as well with his numbers thus far. With 13 games left on the season for the Chicago Bulls, a strong finish by LaVine could catapult him up to the top of the list and help him bring the award home. I expect him to go over his total points in this game.

My second pick for this one is a Phoenix Suns victory as I think they have been nearly unstoppable this season, especially at home and they will get the win over the Bulls in this one. The Suns are so close to locking up the number one overall seed in the league for the entirety of the NBA playoffs. That is why I can’t see them taking their foot off the gas until it becomes official. So while I have Zach LaVine putting up big numbers I still have the Suns coming out on top in the end.

NBA Parlay Pick: LaVine over Points & Suns Moneyline
