We have reached the point in the NBA season where the playoff picture is really beginning to take shape. Teams are clinching their spots and battling it out for seeding, while those at the bottom are already starting to think about what they might need to do in the offseason to improve. What this tells us is that the end of the regular season is upon us, so every game from here on out takes on a higher level of importance, especially when they contain teams in the playoff picture. Let’s see if we can pick some winners from the Wednesday games in our parlay selections so you can bet against the NBA Odds.
Parlay Picks for the Week | NBA Week 24 Betting
NBA SU Parlay – Wizards, Celtics, Hawks
Two teams that will not be in the playoffs this season meet up on Wednesday night, with Orlando on the road to face the Washington Wizards. The home team are barely clinging to life and need a win, so that gives them the edge.
The battle for top spot in the Eastern Conference looks like it might be set to go all the way down to the wire. I like things to get a little tighter at the top tonight, as I think the Boston Celtics are a good bet at home to Miami.
It looks like the Atlanta Hawks are going to be part of the play-in picture in the East, especially after winning 2 in a row to help their cause. Going on the road is never easy, but the Hawks are playing well and should beat OKC.
NBA ATS Parlay – Mavericks (-3 ½), Raptors (-3), Grizzlies (- 5 ½)
The Dallas Mavericks have won 2 in a row and are making a push for the #3 seed in the Western Conference. You would certainly like them to beat the Cavaliers, and I also like them to cover given that they are 4-1 ATS in their last 5.
You have to love it when a team gets hot as the playoffs approach, which is where Toronto is right now, winning 8 of their last 10. A tough one on Wednesday versus Minnesota, but the Raptors are 23-8 ATS in their last 31 versus teams with a winning record.
There are few teams hotter than the Memphis Grizzlies right now, as they come into their game against San Antonio on a 5-game win streak. They have covered the spread in 22 of their last 31 on the road, so reason to believe they do it again here.
NBA O/U Parlay – Nuggets (O232 ½), Hornets (O225), Suns (O224)
The Denver Nuggets are on the road to face the slumping Indiana Pacers as they look to hold on to their top 6 spot. This is a matchup that very often delivers offense, with 5 of the last 6 Denver visits to Indiana going OVER the point total.
It is desperation time for the New York Knicks, who are looking to get above the play-in line, but also looking like they are going to fail. They will host the Charlotte Hornets, with 12 of their last 16 meetings in the Big Apple going OVER.
Heading into the playoffs in a slump is never great, but that is where the Golden State Warriors are at the moment. Things look to get tougher still, with the Phoenix Suns up next. The Suns have seen 7 of their last 9 go OVER.
