Long time NBA fan, have been following the game closely for 21 years now. Joining the Pickswise writing staff for the 2020-21 season. Hopefully we can make some money together! Oh, and I firmly believe Lebron James is not one of the two best basketball players of all time. Yeah, I said it.

Winner takes all in the NBA play-in tournament as the Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards battle for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Tip-off is at 8 pm ET live on TNT, but be sure to check out our written preview as well!

For now, let’s focus on the best bets we picked out for our same game parlay.

Russell Westbrook Over 25.5 Points (-108)

Bradley Beal to Score 35+ Points (+148)

Doug McDermott Over 2.5 Made Threes (+108)

Malcolm Brogdon Over 6.5 Assists (+114)

Parlay odds: +1809

Russell Westbrook Over 25.5 Points (-108)

Yes, Russ did not have the best of games against the Boston Celtics, but despite shooting only 6-for-18 from the field he still managed to put up 20 points. That’s because he went to the line eight times and converted on all eight shots — he isn’t afraid to take it to the hole when his shot isn’t falling. I expect him to be a lot more aggressive against the Pacers, as he no longer has to concentrate on getting triple-doubles with that record having been broken. In the three wins against Indy this season, he has averaged video game numbers — 27.3 points per game while shooting 50 percent from the field and 53.8 percent from the three-point land. Russ will not let Washington lose this game.

Bradley Beal to Score 35+ Points (+148)

Beal was once again the leading scorer for Washington in the loss against Boston. That’s been his job this entire season, he has the ultimate green light on the offensive end. He went to the free-throw line just twice which tells me he wasn’t assertive enough on the offensive end, that will change in tonight’s game for sure. Beal’s numbers against Indiana in the two games he has played them this season are 38 points per game, 54.5 percent from the field, and 33 percent from three-point land. Games between these two teams are high scoring usually and it will be up to Beal to carry his team offensively.

Doug McDermott Over 2.5 Made Threes (+108)

They call him Dougie McBuckets for a reason. He got hot early against the Charlotte Hornets and was one of the main reasons Indiana had such a great game on the offensive end. He finished the game with 21 points and went 4-for-6 from deep. Over his last 10 games, he is shooting 46 percent from beyond the arc while attempting five shots and making 2.3 of them per game. He made over 2.5 threes in four of his last five games. With Caris LeVert being out, his shot attempts will go up and he just needs to make them count.

Malcolm Brogdon Over 6.5 Assists (+114)

In the one game against Washington this season he posted eight assists which is exactly the number he had in the play-in tournament win over the Charlotte Hornets the other night. Being the point guard on this high-scoring Indiana team his responsibility is to make plays for others and he has done well in that role averaging 5.9 assists per game. The three games between Indiana and Washington have averaged a mind-blowing 272 points per contest, we expect another high-scoring affair tonight and Brogdon won’t have any issues getting at least seven assists here.
