NBA Saturday same game parlay: Philadelphia 76ers vs Milwaukee Bucks (+1005)

NBA Saturday same game parlay: Philadelphia 76ers vs Milwaukee Bucks (+1005)

We’ve got afternoon basketball today and that’s a must bet situation. Not only is it in the afternoon, but it’s also on ESPN. If that wasn’t enough, it’s between two of the top three seeds in the Eastern Conference. For the second time in three days, the Philadelphia 76ers will meet the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks took the 124-117 win Thursday night but it wasn’t easy as the shorthanded 76ers didn’t go down easily. This one should be just as good so why not toss out a same game parlay? It just makes sense.

After you are done with this article, don’t forget to check out our full game preview for picks on the side and total.

Milwaukee Bucks ML (-320)

Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris and Joel Embiid may sit for this one. If that happens, there doesn’t seem to be a viable path to victory for the 76ers. This is a big one for the Bucks, so it’s highly likely they will play all of their regulars so there is that too. These two teams just squared off Thursday night and the final score was not exactly indicative of what happened in the game. The Bucks mailed in the fourth quarter losing it 30-16 and still won by seven. This game may not be close.

Khris Middleton to record 3+ made threes (+150)

One thing we can count on is Khris Middleton taking a lot of threes. In his last five games, he hasn’t taken less than six in any contest. He’s hit at least three attempts in three of those games including four on Thursday night. With Giannis Antetokounmpo on the floor, Middleton can fly under the radar more than a guy like him should. At +150, this is a nice piece to the parlay as it is low hanging fruit at plus money.

76ers vs Bucks Under 229 (-104)

This is purely based on the 76ers regulars sitting. They only made it to 241 on Thursday but that was aided by a 137 point first half. If there is no Joel Embiid today, then that would be highly unlikely this time around. I would expect a slower paced first half especially if the Bucks run out to an early lead. Milwaukee has scored at least 115 points in each of their last seven games so they should light the scoreboard. The problem for over bettors is the Sixers may not do their part. This looks like a 120-105 type game.

Donte DiVincenzo Under 10.5 points (-122)

While he does a lot for the Bucks, DiVincenzo doesn’t do much in the way of scoring lately. In his last four games, he has not reached double digits even once. In two of those games, he only took five shots. This is a low number to take an under, but there is blowout potential here. There are likely outcomes where DiVincenzo only plays 20-25 minutes in this game while only taking 5-7 shots. If that happens, he is pretty likely to go under 10.5 points.
