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.

A five-game Saturday slate in the NBA includes two on national television. That duo begins with the Philadelphia 76ers visiting the Phoenix Suns on NBATV and concludes with this showdown between the Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors. Both games are getting the same game parlay treatment they deserve. Let’s take a look at the best such option for Nets vs. Warriors, and be sure to check out our full game preview for picks on the side and total.

Nets -4 (-106)

Kyrie Irving Over 25.5 points (-102)

Joe Harris Over 2.5 three-pointers made (-113)

Stephen Curry to score 40+ points (+320)

Parlay odds: +2877

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 Brooklyn’s chances to take care of business, and a big performance by Kyrie Irving plus some more sharpshooting by Joe Harris would obviously help in that department. At the same time, plays that aren’t correlated drive up the overall value of the parlay to a significant extent. That’s the case with calling another outburst for Stephen Curry. But even if Curry does go crazy again, the Nets should be able to contain the other Warriors such that a four-point spread can still be covered—perhaps even without any trouble.



Nets -4 (-106)

The Nets own the best winning percentage in basketball against opponents with winning records (8-1). Notably, Brooklyn obliterated Utah by 34 points and has wins against Philadelphia, Denver, Milwaukee, and the Clippers, just to name a few examples. Golden State is decent (14-12) but without Klay Thompson this team can’t hold a candle to that aforementioned list of Brooklyn victims. Moreover, after missing the last three games due to COVID health and safety protocols Kevin Durant (averaging 29.5 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 5.2 assists) will return to the lineup to bolster a Nets squad that also features James Harden and Kyrie Irving—two of the best offensive players on the planet.

Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets

Kyrie Irving Over 25.5 points (-102)

Defense will be pretty much optional in this matchup, and there is a good chance both teams decline that option. Even if the Warriors do try to play some defense, it won’t be easy on Irving (or on anyone else, for that matter). Curry just can’t handle Irving on that end of the floor, just as Irving can’t deal with Curry when Golden State has the ball. The former Duke standout scored 26 points on efficient 10-of-16 shooting in the previous meeting between the two teams this season, and that was only in 25 minutes of action. Assuming this game isn’t as big of a blowout, you can count on Irving logging more PT. As such, he could exceed this quota with ease.

Joe Harris Over 2.5 three-pointers made (-113)

The Warriors are only mediocre at defending the three-ball, so nothing suggests they will keep an in-form Harris in check. Harris has drained at least three three-pointers in five of the last seven contests, including eight on one occasions and five on another. He is coming off a 3-for-7 effort during Wednesday’s win over Indiana. The veteran out of UVA is shooting a ridiculous 49.2 percent from the land of plenty this season.

Stephen Curry to score 40+ points (+320)

Curry is playing at an MVP level in 2020-21 (but he probably won’t win it unless the Warriors start winning at a far more consistent rate). The former Davidson star has been especially on fire of late, averaging 40.3 ppg over the past four games. However, Golden State is just 2-2 in those four; head coach Steve Kerr’s crew even came up short when Curry scored 57 points against Dallas. Against a porous Brooklyn defense, there is no reason why Curry can’t score at least 40…and no reason why the Nets can’t withstand such a performance.
