Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been in the news on Monday after they announced that center Andre Drummond will be permanently out of the lineup as they seek a trade partner. That does not bode well for their short-term outlook, including for Monday’s contest against the Golden State Warriors. Let’s take a look at the best same game parlay option for that matchup, and be sure to check out our full game preview for picks on the side and total.

Warriors -9 (-118)

Stephen Curry to score 35+ points (+188)

Kelly Oubre Jr. Over 1.5 three-pointers (-166)

Isaac Okoro Over 7.5 points (-122)

Parlay odds: +1237

Part of the value in same game parlays, of course, is that all of its components can be correlated if you so choose. That is much of the plan here. We feel good about the Warriors’ chances to take care of business without too much trouble, and big performances by Stephen Curry and Kelly Oubre Jr. would go a long way in that effort. At the same time, plays that aren’t correlated drive up the overall value of the parlay. That’s the case with tipping Cleveland’s Isaac Okoro for a successful day at the office.



Warriors -9 (-118)

Things are going from bad to worse for the Cavaliers. Their seven-game losing streak is the worst in the NBA right now and now Drummond is on the way out. During this skid Cleveland is losing by a ridiculous average of 20 points. The Warriors are coming off a blowout loss, but that was to Brooklyn. Golden State is over .500 and should have no trouble beating up on a much weaker opponent. Curry is playing at an MVP level and is getting plenty of help from the likes of Oubre, Andrew Wiggins, and Draymond Green.

Stephen Curry to score 35+ points (+188)

This is a recipe for disaster for Cleveland. Drummond isn’t there to man the paint, which means Golden State’s inside-outside game should be clicking even without James Wiseman in the lineup. Oubre, Wiggins, and Green are more than capable of getting to the basket, which could open things up for Curry on the perimeter. The Cavaliers are dead last in the NBA in opponents’ three-point shooting percentage (39.8). Good luck containing the former Davidson standout, who already has two games this month with double-digit three-pointers.

Kelly Oubre Jr. Over 1.5 three-pointers (-166)

Oubre is coming off back-to-back double-doubles. He is playing with confidence following a slow start to his first season with a new team, during which he could not throw the ball in the ocean. Oubre has drained multiple triples in five of the past six outings, including a 7-for-10 effort against Dallas earlier this month. He is attempted at least five three-balls in six straight contests. As mentioned above, a lot of attempts from long range go in against Cleveland—regardless of who is launching.

Isaac Okoro Over 7.5 points (-122)

The Warriors are great at defending the paint and they are at least mediocre (much unlike Cleveland) at defending the three-point line. This could be a mid-range game for the Cavaliers, especially with Drummond sidelined. Okoro has scored in double-figures in three of the last four games and in four of the last six. Plus if the Dubs win this one by as much as they are capable of, they may slack off late and yield some cheap baskets. Okoro would be one of the beneficiaries.
