76ers vs. Trail Blazers Same Game Parlay Odds & Pick
The Parlay: (+200)
- Joel Embiid Over 32.5 Points (-125)
- James Harden 3+ Made 3-Point Shots (+100)
Joel Embiid Over 32.5 Points (-125)
The Trail Blazers have been one of the worst teams defending opposing centers as they surrender an average of 26 points (on 59.2% shooting) and 15.2 boards.
This sets Embiid up well for another monster night. He enters tonight averaging 33.6 points per contest and 9.8 rebounds. He’s logged a double-double in three of his last five games, and has also been finding his groove from beyond the arc as he has made two or more 3-point shots in three straight games.
In the last two meetings between these teams Embiid scored 37 points on 14-of-21 from the field and 35 points on 13-of-25 shooting. Expect Embiid to feast inside.
James Harden 3+ Made 3-Point Shots (+100)
James Harden is coming off a poor shooting night versus the Clippers, but that game is an outlier. Harden is averaging 21.7 points on 44.5 percent shooting from the floor and 38.2 percent shooting from beyond the arc. He missed all four attempts from deep last game, but prior to that, he made two or more 3-point shots in 13 straight contests.
Harden’s made 3s line offers value with Over 2.5 at +100. In what projects to be a favorable offensive matchup for the 76ers, perhaps even look at some alternate lines for a bigger payout. One that caught my eye is 5+ at +650 to spice up your SGP.
