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.

We have a four-game NBA slate between Tuesday and Wednesday. I don’t know about you, but the first thing I think when I see something like that is, parlay. I can’t take credit for my brain working like that, it was just a gift. Still, we should take the four games and see if there is a baby, mini-mega parlay we can throw together. There are plenty of angles for each game so if we just take the best ones from each, we should have a formidable parlay. Here is where I am going with these games.

Don’t just read about this parlay though. You’d be crazy to do that! Our team has put together picks on the side and total of all four of the first round games. You can also follow me on Twitter for any other bets I might throw out throughout the day.

Devonte’ Graham Over 12.5 points (-192) * Alt points

Bradley Beal over 31.5 points (+102) *Alt points

Memphis Grizzlies ML (-174)

Dennis Schroder Over 1.5 made threes (+140)

Parlay Odds: +1050

Devonte’ Graham Over 12.5 points (-192) * Alt points

There will be no Caris Levert tonight for the Indiana Pacers which is a shame. Still the game must go on and while the Pacers still seem to be the play, Devonte’ Graham’s point total looks to be way too low. Graham has been playing off the bench recently but has still turned in some gems. He’s gone over this number in three of his last four games and seems to be the alpha off the bench. He could easily see 30+ minutes tonight and take 15+ shots. Our parlay should be alive and kicking after this game.

Bradley Beal over 31.5 points (+102) *Alt points

I went with the alt points on this one for the better number (+102). When dealing with volume scorers it’s a strategy that usually works since the ceiling is so high. Beal has something to prove and he is actually in a spot to do it. He could take 30+ shots tonight. Although I don’t expect him to, that isn’t out of the realm of possibilities. He’s played the Celtics three times this season and gone over this number in all three meetings. He had a tune-up game against Charlotte where he looked rusty and still scored 25 points. He should keep our parlay alive with a 35+ point performance tonight.

Memphis Grizzlies ML (-174)

I have absolutely zero faith that the San Antonio Spurs can even hang in this game much less win it. They have been abused by everyone they have played over their last four games. One of the games was against the Phoenix Suns’ “B” side. The Spurs opened the season with a win over Memphis but in two other games against them, they looked lost losing one by 17 and the other by 31. The Grizzlies ended the season by winning five of their last six with the only loss coming to Golden State. The Spurs are not the Warriors and our parlay should still be rolling into the last game.

Dennis Schroder Over 1.5 made threes (+140)

While LeBron James was out, Dennis Schroder was a ball handler but with James in, he could be seen as a three-point shooter. In his last three games with James in the lineup, Schroder has taken at least five threes in all of them. In two of those games, he hit at least two of the attempts. We chase volume around here and that is great volume for a 1.5 +140 number. If Schroder takes at least six threes in this one, he is a pretty safe bet to hit two of them and cash our parlay in the process.
