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.

There’s another busy night coming our way in the NBA this Wednesday with a total of 9 games being played!

Tonight’s NBA TV doubleheader begins with the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics at 7:30pm ET, followed by the Sacramento Kings and LA Clippers squaring off at 10pm ET.

Continue reading below for our same-game parlay, but also check out our predictions on the side and total for tonight’s 9-game slate.

Let’s dive in!

Marcus Smart over 11.5 points (-112)

Joel Embiid over 1.5 made threes (+138)

Tobias Harris to score 20+ points (+132)

Parlay odds: +901

Marcus Smart over 11.5 points (-112)

Although he’s only 5th on the team in scoring, Smart is still averaging 11.2 points per game this season. In his past 10 games we’ve seen his numbers go up as he’s averaged 13.3 per game during that stretch with improved shooting from the field at 44%. He has gone over 11.5 points in 3 games in a row and in 2 of those he has scored 20 against the Brooklyn Nets and 21 against the Raptors on Monday. It’s worth pointing out he went 3-for-8 and 4-for-10 from downtown in those games. With Jayson Tatum’s recent struggles and Jaylen Brown’s return to the floor after injury, Smart has been stepping up big time and tonight against a Philadelphia team without Ben Simmons, who would be normally guarding him all night, Smart can definitely have an impact on the game.

Joel Embiid over 1.5 made threes (+138)

The big man just recently came back into the rotation after a 20-day absence due to Covid-19 and although he scored 42 points against Minnesota in his first game back, he struggled against Orlando on Monday. Embiid was visibly gassed at times in that game and could muster only 30 minutes of play, finishing the game with just 16 points on 4-for-16 shooting. He has had a day to rest for tonight’s game, but it seems sensible to expect him to feel the effects for a couple more games at least. Because of this I think he will settle for shooting the 3-ball a lot more instead of taking the ball to the hoop. In the 2 games since he returned he has made 3 of 6 shots from distance, going over 1.5 made threes against Minnesota. Boston is in the bottom 10 when it comes to opponent 3-point percentage in their home games, so Embiid has a decent chance of draining at least 2 long shots.

Tobias Harris to score 20+ points (+132)

With Embiid struggling, someone else will have to step up and that someone else is the guy they paid $180m to get buckets. Harris is averaging exactly 20.1 points per game this season and unlike the majority of players he scores more points on the road than at home. He’s coming off 2 straight games of 17 points against Minnesota and Orlando, and in the game prior to that he had 28 against the Portland Trail Blazers. In 2 of his last 3 games against the Celtics he has gone over 20 points, so there’s definitely reason to be optimistic with this bet tonight.
