You can't win if you don't bet. That's a fact. I've been betting games for over 20 years and writing about it for the past 10. If there's a game, there's an angle. We just have to find it.

Here’s what’s going to happen tonight. We’re all going to be so fired up for the Monday Night Football game that we’re going to completely forget about the NBA. Then at 7pm ET, we’re all going to be mad that we didn’t bet it. What are we supposed to do from 7:00-8:15pm ET while we wait for the football game to start? How about bet a same game parlay on the Brooklyn Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers?

Let’s take a look at the best options for this showdown and don’t forget to check out our full game previews for picks on the sides and totals of all the NBA games tonight. As always, follow me on Twitter just in case there are more NBA player props to bet.

James Harden (Nets) 30+ points (+310)

James Harden 10+ assists  (+136)

Parlay odds: +713

James Harden (Nets) 30+ points (+310)

I know you think this is stupid but I’m not so sure it is. After all he just did it last game and even though Kevin Durant was out I don’t think it matters. The thing is, Harden has figured out how to get to the free-throw line again. After struggling to fool the refs because of the new rules, Harden has now taken at least 11 free-throw attempts in each of his last 3 games. He’s back, people. The guy just shot 28% from the floor last game and still scored 36 points. Given his new-found free-throw cheat code, I don’t think this bet should be +310.

James Harden 10+ assists  (+136)

The Beard isn’t just putting the ball in the bucket, he’s also dishing the rock to people who actually can hit shots from the field. The Nets will have Kevin Durant back tonight, so that will help in the assist department. If Harden doesn’t score, he’ll assist. That’s pretty much Brooklyn Nets’ basketball right now. Over his last 2 games, we’ve seen Harden go 27-10 and 36-10. Why won’t he at least throw up 30-10 line tonight? I don’t think this is crazy at all and we definitely shouldn’t be getting +713 for this.
