We’ve got a very exciting Western Conference Matchup here as the Los Angeles Clippers host the New Orleans Pelicans. Kawhi Leonard vs. Zion Williamson. Will the young gun get the best of the seasoned veteran, or will the Clippers start to snap out of their funk here?

What better way to make this nationally televised showdown even more entertaining than by betting a same game parlay?

New Orleans Pelicans ML (+225)

Brandon Ingram over 22.5 points (-110)

Clippers over 113.5 points (-114)

Parlay odds: +1799

We’ve got a three-leg one for you here, which pays at just under 18/1 with FanDuel Sportsbook. By combining the Pelicans winning with the Clippers scoring at least 114 we get a huge odds boost, when I think the Pelicans are only going to win this game if it’s a shootout anyway. Let’s break it down:

New Orleans Pelicans ML (+225)

The Clippers quietly haven’t been playing well at all recently, so this price seems pretty steep. Los Angeles is just 3-3 in their last six games, and they haven’t been too impressive in the wins either. All three of those victories came by seven points or fewer, and the most recent one was by just three points against the Bulls in a game they very nearly collapsed in at home. Sure, New Orleans has lost three in a row, but two of the losses were by two points or fewer, and right before that they had beat the Raptors. The Clippers’ defense has lacked intensity at times, and they’re lacking consistent scoring beyond Leonard and Paul George.

Brandon Ingram over 22.5 points (-110)

If the Pelicans are going to pull off an upset here, then Ingram almost certainly had a good game. He’s showing that his breakout 2019-20 All-Star campaign was far from a fluke, as he’s been just as good through the first nine games of the season. He’s scored at least 24 points in six of nine games this season, so this line feels a bit conservative. He recently had his worst shooting game of the season, and still put up 17 points despite making only three shots because of his ability to get to the free-throw line. This play correlates so strongly with the Pelicans winning a high-scoring game that there’s really no harm in throwing it in.

Clippers over 113.5 points (-114)

We get a massive odds boost for throwing this in when I really don’t think it’s in too much conflict. In other words, I don’t see the Pelicans winning a defensive struggle here. If they win this game, there will likely be a lot of points scored. In their most recent win they gave up 116 points to Toronto, so this really wouldn’t be at all unusual. The Clippers have now given up at least 115 points in three of their last four games, and their most recent contest was a 130-127 shootout against the Bulls. With all the offensive talent in this game and lackluster recent defense from both sides, there should be a lot of fireworks here.
