Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

We have an 11-game slate in the NBA on Wednesday and it is headlined by a double-header on ESPN. After the Golden State Warriors visit the Dallas Mavericks, the Denver Nuggets host the Utah Jazz. Another intriguing matchup pits the Brooklyn Nets – with superstar Kyie Irving back in action – against the Indiana Pacers.

Both Denver-Utah and Brooklyn-Indiana are part of today’s three-team mega parlay.

Nets -7.5 (-110)

Warriors -9.5 alternate spread (+145)

Nuggets ML (+140)

Parlay odds: +1023

For this parlay we are going with two favorites against the spread – one on an alternate number – and one underdog on the money line. Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

Nets -7.5 over Pacers (-110)

There is a huge buzz around tonight’s game in Indiana as Kyrie Irving is set to make his regular-season debut for Brooklyn after missing the first 35 games of the season. The Nets are getting him back just at the right time; they have lost 3 games in a row and Kyrie could be the missing piece of this puzzle, although he will only be allowed to play in road games. Whenever a player of his caliber returns to a lineup there are always questions about chemistry, but I don’t think that will be an issue for the Nets. Last season when the Big 3 was on the court all at the same time, they were pretty much unbeatable. Indiana is currently on the longest losing streak of the season after dropping 5 in a row and 8 of its last 10. Back Brooklyn to win big.

Warriors -9.5 alternate spread over Mavericks (+145)

Golden State enters play as one of the healthiest teams in the NBA, with only Andre Iguodala listed as questionable on the official injury report. Dallas recently returned Luka Doncic to the lineup but remains without Willie Cauley-Stein, Boban Marjanovic, Kristaps Porzingis, and Isaiah Thomas. Unquestionably the Warriors are one of the most dominant teams in the league. They rank 4th in the NBA in offensive efficiency and lead the league in defensive efficiency by a wide margin. They are led by MVP frontrunner Stephen Curry, who is averaging 27.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 6.1 assists per game.

Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole have been strong supporting options for the offense, each averaging 18.1 points or more per night. The Mavericks are 2-0 since returning Doncic to the floor, but it is worth noting that those two wins both came against underwhelming teams. Per Cleaning the Glass, when Doncic is on the court without Porzingis this season the Mavericks rank in only the 43rd percentile in offensive efficiency and the 34th percentile in defensive efficiency. The Dubs should roll.

Nuggets ML over Jazz (+140)

Joe Ingles won’t be available to play tonight, as he becomes the first Jazz player this season to enter the health and safety protocols. Not bad for the team that was ground zero of the NBA’s coronavirus crisis two years ago! Against the Nuggets, Utah has covered only three times in its last 14 visits to Ball Arena. Denver’s three-game winning streak came to an end following a loss at Dallas earlier this week. Luka Doncic returned and the Nuggets simply didn’t have a proper response. Nikola Jokic had 27 points and 16 rebounds. The Nuggets are 10-7 SU at home this season; not a dominant mark but also by no means terrible. When these two teams faced each other in Denver the last time, the Nuggets prevailed 128-117.
