Like most Lithuanians, I started watching basketball from the age of six. I'm based out in London and played basketball at the University of Lincoln here in the UK. I had always had an interest in the NBA but things really took off in the summer of 2010. That year Linas Kleiza led Lithuania to 3rd place at the World Championships and signed with the Toronto Raptors to replace the departing Chris Bosh. I've been a Raptors fan since that day and I've not missed a game since. I've been handicapping games for more than a decade, specializing in player props.

The New Orleans Pelicans travel to take on the Phoenix Suns tonight in what will be the 4th and final meeting between the teams this season. The Pelicans have been able to win 2 of the 3 games so far, with their loss coming on the road in Phoenix. This time they return there with Zion Williamson in the fold. He has had great success against the Suns in the other games and will be hoping he can help his squad avenge that road defeat. Let’s jump straight into the Same Game Parlay I have put together for tonight’s encounter between these Western Conference contenders.

Zion Williamson over 28.5 points (-118)

Jonas Valanciunas over 8.5 rebounds (-130)

Devin Booker over 2.5 made threes (+104)

Zion Williamson over 28.5 points (-118)

Williamson has been dominant against the Suns this season. In the 2 games against them, the forward is averaging 35 points per game on 71.1% shooting from the field. The Suns do not have anyone on their roster that can effectively deal with his combination of size and athleticism. With Deandre Ayton also out for the hosts, the should be more space in the paint for Williamson to attack. Bismack Biyombo will likely draw the start but he is not as physical of a force as Ayton is. Over the last 10 games, the Suns have been in the bottom 10 in the league in defensive rating. It is tough to see what adjustments they could make to slow down the Pelicans star.

Check out our predictions for New Orleans Pelicans vs Phoenix Suns

Jonas Valanciunas over 8.5 rebounds (-130)

Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas is averaging 10 rebounds per game against the Suns and should too benefit from the absence of Ayton. His replacement Biyombo is not an offensive threat outside of the paint. That should allow Valanciunas to maintain great defensive rebounding position throughout the night. The Lithuanian will also enjoy a size advantage over his opponent here, giving him the edge when going for contested rebounds. With Biyombo also being a keen shot blocker, look for Valanciunas to get offensive rebounding opportunities. The Suns are 24th in the league in opponent rebounds per game and the Pelicans center should be able to grab his share tonight.

Devin Booker over 2.5 made threes (+104)

With Ayton out, the Suns will rely more heavily on their guards for their offense tonight, and I expect Devin Booker to step up to the task tonight. While he has not been in great scoring form of late, a player of his caliber should be able to bounce back, and this could be the game. Over the last 10 games, only the Houston Rockets allow more opponent 3-point attempts per game than New Orleans. The Pelicans rank 26th in opponent 3-pointers made as a result. Booker is shooting 36.1% from the arc this season. He attempted 8 shots from deep the last time the sides met. If he can get close to a similar number of attempts here, he will have a great chance to hit this line.
