Wednesday promises to be a banger in the NBA as we have a hefty 13-game slate coming our way. Not only that, but we also have an ESPN doubleheader featuring a pair of city rivalries taking place. Our focus is on the Knicks vs Nets clash, tipping off at 7:30 pm ET, and I’ve prepared a Same Game Parlay for that matchup. Make sure you also read our NBA Predictions for the LA Lakers vs LA Clippers game, plus the other 11 games taking place on Wednesday. But for now, let’s dive into this Knicks vs Nets Same Game Parlay.

New York Knicks 1-10 win margin (+210)

Jalen Brunson over 1.5 made threes (+112)

Julius Randle to score 20+ points (-130)

Under 223 total points (-110)

Parlay odds: +2291

New York Knicks 1-10 win margin over Brooklyn Nets (+210)

Entering tonight’s game, the Knicks are higher in the standings than their cross-town rivals, and there’s very little drama surrounding them. That’s the opposite of the Nets, who are in full chaos mode at the moment. They’ll continue to be without Kyrie Irving here, and the offense hasn’t been performing well over the past couple of games, in which they failed to crack 100 points.

The Knicks are coming off a big win in Minnesota, their 2nd in 3 games, and the momentum is on their side heading into tonight’s game. Although the Nets have beaten them in 7 straight meetings, only one of those games was decided by more than 10 points so it promises to be another close outcome here. New York has managed to cover the spread in 14 of 19 head-to-head meetings, and in 13 of 16 on the road overall, so I believe it’s time for them to finally get the monkey off their backs and beat the struggling Nets.

Jalen Brunson over 1.5 made threes (+112)

Brunson’s adaptation to the Knicks’ offense has been encouraging. He is 2nd on the team in points per game behind only Julius Randle. I am not looking for him to go crazy on offense here, but in order for the Knicks to win he will have to contribute from the perimeter. Brooklyn’s biggest weakness on defense has been the 3-point line, with opponents averaging 38.9% of makes against them. Against Dallas, they allowed the Mavs to connect on almost 43% of their attempts, so Brunson has a really good opportunity to do some damage here.

Brunson has scored at least 1 three in 4 straight against the Nets, and aside from the centers he is the most efficient Knicks player from the field this season, scoring on 50.7% of his attempts. He’s making 1.2 threes per game and after seeing him get 2 against the Timberwolves, I’m confident he can get on a similar run to what he had in October when he scored a couple of threes in 3 games straight.

Julius Randle to score 20+ points (-130)

Most of the Knicks’ points should come from Julius Randle in this game. Getting to 20 should be a relatively easy task, as he’s done so in 3 straight against the Nets and in 7 of the last 8 games he’s played against them. During that stretch, he’s averaged 27.3 points per game and Brooklyn simply doesn’t have an answer for him. After scoring 29 in the loss at Boston, Randle followed it up with 31 in the win at Minnesota (including 8 threes) and he’s upped his scoring average from 18.3 per game in October to 22.8 in November.

Randle should take advantage of the Nets’ poor perimeter defense here, plus with Brooklyn missing their 2nd leading scorer, his main defender, Kevin Durant, will have his hands full trying to carry his team on offense. As a result, Durant might lack energy on the defensive end. I’m expecting a strong scoring night from the Knicks’ big man here.

Under 223 total points (-110)

The under is the best option in this game, as it’s difficult to see the Nets’ offense keeping pace with the Knicks. Although Kevin Durant is averaging 31 points per game, the Nets will be without their second-leading scorer in Kyrie Irving. Brooklyn already struggles offensively as they rank 20th in points per game, so Irving’s absence hurts their offensive potential even more. However, as inconsistent as the Nets have been on the attack, their defense has been solid as they allow the 12th fewest points per game to opponents. Therefore, the Nets should be able to rely on their defense and limit the Knicks in this matchup. In fact, the under has hit in 5 straight games for Brooklyn, so look for that trend to continue in this game.
