NBA Playoff Same-Game Parlay Picks: Brunson Stays Cooking

Jalen Brunson didn't exactly have his best shooting performance in Game 1 but still finished with 22 points in a Knicks win. Tonight's SGP expects Brunson to stay in attack mode while upping the shooting percentage and point total at MSG.

Three more NBA playoff games are set for Monday and with some tight point spreads, the action figures to be as intense as ever! 

If you're void of time, or you're simply looking to wager on some highly entertaining same-game parlays, we've done the work for you.

Here are our best SGP NBA picks for the April 22 slate below.

Tonight's NBA same-game parlay picks

Our betting experts have scoured through today's NBA odds to find your best SGP bets for each of the three Game 2s on Monday's playoff slate: 

Magic vs Cavaliers same-game parlay (SGP)

Cole Anthony 3+ assists

Anthony 10+ points

Anthony 2+ threes

I believe the pricing is way off and there is potential for an assists ladder with Cole Anthony.

If Anthony sees the slight increase in minutes that I believe he will, all of these props are very much within reach. The one thing I do like about this SGP, specifically for Anthony, is that if he comes into the game and knocks down a 3-pointer, his minutes should only increase.

The Magic are desperate for shooting and floor spacing, so if Anthony can knock down a shot, his minutes could elevate past our projection and give you a chance to cash all of these legs in this parlay.

76ers vs Knicks same-game parlay (SGP)

Jalen Brunson Over 30.5 points

Josh Hart Over 13.5 points

Miles McBride Over 1.5 threes

One thing that became clear in Game 1 is that Miles McBride will have a prominent role in this series. McBride ultimately proved to be the best defender against Tyrese Maxey and “Deuce” also provided serious punch from behind the arc in turn going 5 of 7 on some aggressive attempts. He should get similar looks in Game 2.

Hart will also be key. In addition to the three triples he made to swing the game in the fourth quarter, he dominated on the offensive glass and got to the line 10 times. Hart drew a lot of those fouls by grabbing and going off a defensive rebound and attacking the 76ers who matched up poorly in transition.

If Embiid is suffering lingering effects from his ill-fated attempt at a self-alley-oop dunk in the second quarter, Philadelphia is going to be even more vulnerable to Hart’s relentless pace.

Lakers vs Nuggets same-game parlay (SGP)

Anthony Davis Over 12.5 rebounds 

Nuggets moneyline 

Under 223

With L.A. forcing a slower pace, the Nuggets won’t get as many easy looks at the hoop. Anthony Davis will clean the glass, with some forecasts as high as 16 rebounds in Game 2.

Knocking off the Nuggets on their own floor is a tall task, even for LeBron James & Co. Denver has lost only eight games inside Ball Arena this season.

Even with defensive adjustments coming after Game 1, this Over/Under is a tall ask. I expect a slower, half-court matchup tonight. This total has been cut from 226.5 to 223 after the teams scored a collective 217 points in the series opener.
