NBA Playoffs same game parlay (+1530 odds): Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Playoffs same game parlay (+1530 odds): Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Clippers

The NBA playoffs are winding down, and we’ve got a great showdown on Wednesday night. The Los Angeles Clippers will look to stave off elimination once again when they host the Phoenix Suns for Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals.

What better way to make this pivotal postseason matchup even more entertaining than by betting a same game parlay? Make sure you also check out our thoughts on the side and total for tonight’s mega matchup.

Phoenix Suns ML (-108)

Chris Paul to score 25+ points (+280)

Deandre Ayton to score 20+ points (+176)

Parlay odds: +1530

We have a three-leg parlay, one which pays out just north of 15/1 at FanDuel Sportsbook. Let’s break it all down:

Phoenix Suns ML (-108)

To start this SGP off we’ve got the Suns on the money line. Phoenix leads this series 3-2 despite playing far from their best basketball recently. Both Devin Booker and Chris Paul have been ice cold from the floor, which isn’t a bad sign for this series. If the Suns can win Game 4 despite Booker and Paul combining to shoot 14/44, just imagine what they can do when these guys break out of their slumps.

The Clippers are still going to be without Kawhi Leonard and Ivica Zubac, and those absences will be felt here. Zubac wasn’t announced as out until right before the tip of Game 5, so Phoenix couldn’t really plan for it. Monty Williams will now be able to scheme accordingly for these small-ball lineups and punish them more. If Booker and Paul start playing like the All-Stars that they are, which they should, the Suns will win this one easily.

Chris Paul to score 25+ points (+280)

All three of these plays correlate nicely, and all we need is one big game from the Suns’ offense to cash this. 15/1 odds that the Suns finally start firing on all cylinders on offense? Give me that all day long.

Paul has been terrible shooting in his three games in this series, and is still averaging over 18 points per game in them. He’s averaging 18.3 in this series despite shooting 31.9 percent. The volume is there, as he’s taken at least 19 shots in each game. As such, if he can just bring up his percentages to his season-long numbers, he shouldn’t have much trouble getting to 25. He scored 22 in Game 5 while shooting 0/6 from beyond the arc. In his last two games in the second round, he scored 27 and 37. Getting +280 feels like a steal.

Deandre Ayton to score 20+ points (+176)

Again, we only need one thing for this whole parlay — the Suns to score a lot of points. Ayton had at least 18 points in each of the first four games of this series, so this certainly isn’t some sort of long-shot. That’s even with the offense mostly struggling as a whole. Ayton only scored 10 in the Game 5 loss, and since then a lot of the talk around the team has been about getting him more involved. It’s a must, and Williams will make it a priority in his game-planning.

Like I said above, the Suns didn’t know Zubac wasn’t going to play until right before the game started. Now that they have more time to prepare, expect them to look to exploit the Clippers’ small-ball lineups a lot more by getting the ball into Ayton down low.
