NBA Saturday same game parlay (+1533 odds): Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Lakers

There are six games in total this Saturday in the NBA, we tip things off at 4:30 pm ET with the Utah Jazz visiting the Los Angeles Lakers and it’s live on ESPN!

Our same-game parlay is focused on that game, but don’t forget to also check out our picks on the side and total for the other five games, including the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics clashing at 8.30pm ET on ABC!

Los Angeles Lakers ML (+275)

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope 2+ Made Threes (+102)

Dennis Schröder Over 9.5 Reb + Ast (-102)

Parlay odds: +1533



Los Angeles Lakers ML (+275)

Utah lost Donovan Mitchell to an ankle injury, he will have an MRI which will reveal how much time he will be out. He’s having an MVP type year averaging 26.5 points per game, without him they are just not the same team. Although the Lakers are without Anthony Davis and LeBron James, they’ve split their last 10 games beating a couple of playoff bound teams along the way. They’ve won the last three against the Jazz at Staples Center and covered in four of the last five, if certain things fall into place they are capable of pulling off the upset here.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope 2+ Made Threes (+102)

With Rudy Gobert controlling the paint, the Lakers will be taking more shots from the perimeter than usual. Caldwell-Pope isn’t the flashiest team on their roster, but can certainly fill it up from deep when needed. For the season he is at 41 percent from three. In his last 10 games he has upped that to 43.8 percent while scoring 10.5 points per game. With Donovan Mitchell not playing here that is one less player to worry about defending him. He has averaged 5.8 attempts from deep in his last five games and has scored at least two three-pointers six times in his last eight games. Just 10 days ago he scored 28 points on 6/11 from three against the Miami Heat.

Dennis Schröder Over 9.5 Reb + Ast (-102)

With LeBron not playing, Schröder has completely taken over the point-guard duties for LA. Over his last 10 games he has averaged 7.6 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game, his numbers go up across the board in home games. Over the past month he has played in 16 games, in 12 of those games he had Over 9.5 rebounds and assists. He is also capable of scoring the ball, but tonight against the Jazz we will see a lower scoring game and his duty will be to get everyone involved in the offense. Going up against Mike Conley will be a challenge, but Schröder is one of those players who plays the best when the match-up gets tougher.
