Best NBA Parlay Picks Today, Tuesday, 10/31: 3-Leg Parlay at mega +1412 odds: Backing Victor Wembanyama and the Spurs
Happy Halloween, Pickswise Nation! It’s a great night to dress up and get some candy, but not to watch a full slate of NBA games since only 6 teams are in action. However, I’ve still managed to put together an NBA parlay at 14/1 odds for tonight’s small slate, so let’s get right into it, and make sure to check out all of our NBA picks for today’s 3 matchups.
Knicks -2.5 (-110)
Spurs ML (+230)
Clippers win by 11+ (+140)
New York Knicks -2.5 over Cleveland Cavaliers (-110)
It’s a battle of 1-2 teams in Cleveland as the Knicks and Cavaliers meet for the first time this season. However, even though they have the same record, they haven’t been playing the same basketball. The Knicks lost a hard-fought battle in their season opener against the Celtics and followed that up with an offensive-shootout win against the Pelicans. That’s where the Knicks’ win streak ended though because a poor offensive performance against the Pelicans earned New York its second loss. And when I mean poor, I mean really, really poor. The Knicks shot just 36.7% from the field and 18.9% from three-point land as an off-shooting night from Jalen Brunson and the rest of the Knicks starting 5 came at a bad time. They take on a Cleveland team that hasn’t been as impressive on the defensive side of the ball as many expected, so at just a few points, New York should be able to cover its small spread.

San Antonio Spurs ML over Phoenix Suns (+230)
The Suns have formed the newest superteam in the NBA, but the superteam won’t be all that super on Halloween since two-thirds of the big 3 will be missing. Newcomer Bradley Beal has already been ruled out for Tuesday’s contest as he continues to recover from a back injury that has held him back from making his Phoenix debut. Devin Booker has also been hit with the doubtful label for Tuesday with a foot injury, so the Suns’ offense could once again be made of Kevin Durant, Eric Gordon and the Phoenix bench. That could open the door for a young Spurs team to steal a game on the road. San Antonio has shown flashes of brilliance on offense around Victor Wembanyama, but sometimes the lack of experience has hurt them in crucial situations. Nevertheless, a good shooting night could let Wembanyama and the Spurs take down the latest super team in the Western Conference.

Los Angeles Clippers win by 11+ over Orlando Magic (+140)
I’m a big fan of the Magic and the dark horse they could be in the Eastern Conference this season, but this will be their first back-to-back of the season. Fortunately for Orlando, there won’t be any travel needed since both games will be played at Crypto.com Arena. However, that doesn’t eliminate the rest component of the back-to-back. Based on what the NBA has turned into in the last few seasons, it’s normal to see a star or two benched in the second leg of the back-to-back for rest purposes. That means Paulo Banchero or Franz Wagner could sit out against the Clippers, and that would be a massive loss for the offense. As for the Clippers, they have been dominant through 3 games. Heading into Monday night, the Clippers ranked 4th in offensive rating and 8th in defensive rating. Their starting lineup is elite and their bench is exceptional, so I think they could blow a tired Orlando team away on Tuesday.
