NBA Playoffs same game parlay (+2794 odds): Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Playoffs same game parlay (+2794 odds): Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Clippers

The NBA playoffs are in full swing and we’ve got a great two-game slate on Friday. The nightcap is a good one, as the Los Angeles Clippers will look close out the Utah Jazz in a pivotal Game 6. It will be nationally televised by ESPN.

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 matchups.

Utah Jazz to win by 11+ (+350)

Marcus Morris to score 20+ points (+156)

Bojan Bogdanovic to score 20+ points (+146)

Parlay odds: +2794

We have a three-leg parlay, one which pays out just shy of 30/1 at FanDuel Sportsbook. Let’s break it all down:

Utah Jazz to win by 11+ (+350)

It’s put up or shut up time for the Jazz. Utah faces elimination here after initially taking a commanding 2-0 lead in the series. The Jazz have their backs up against the wall, but all is not lost. Most importantly, Kawhi Leonard won’t be playing here for Los Angeles. The Clips are capable of playing well without him, but their floor is also a great deal lower when he’s not out there.

As such, getting +350 on this alternate line makes a lot of sense. The variance gets increased without Leonard playing, and his absence greatly increases the chances of the Clippers getting blown out. Oddsmakers don’t appear to be accounting for that reality. Clippers role players like Reggie Jackson continue to knock down shots at an insane rate, which just isn’t sustainable. The Jazz are the better team, and they’ll show it on Friday.

Marcus Morris to score 20+ points (+156)

We get a nice odds boost by combining this with the Jazz winning, when I don’t think it conflicts much. The Clippers are going to ride and die with Paul George here. Even if Morris plays well, they aren’t going to win if George doesn’t. Morris has now scored at least 24 points in back to back games, so getting this much plus-money presents a lot of value. That first game came with Leonard still playing. His volume understandably took a big jump in the first game without Leonard, as he took 16 shots from the floor. He should get plenty of looks once again in Game 6.

Bojan Bogdanovic to score 20+ points (+146)

On the other hand, this does correlate with the Jazz winning. The Jazz desperately need players other than Donovan Mitchell to step up, and if they win this game it’s going to be in part because Bogdanovic had a good night. He dropped 32 points in Game 5, and took a whopping 17 threes. Mitchell’s ankle appears to be an ever-growing concern, so Bogdanovic should be locked into heavy shots once again here. His hot shooting in the playoffs certainly isn’t any fluke, and he scored at least 20 points in nine of his last 11 regular-season games to close the year.
