NBA Finals Same Game Parlay

The Parlay: (+130)

  • Bam Adebayo Under 10.5 Rebounds (-230)
  • Aaron Gordon 10+ Points (-320)
  • Denver Nuggets Moneyline (-320)

Bam Adebayo Under 10.5 Rebounds 

Nikola Jokic is an offensive juggernaut. As a team, you can't stop him as a team, but you must make it tough for him to score the ball. That'll be Bam Adebayo's assignment.

In the two games against the Nuggets, Adebayo averaged 4.5 rebounds per game. Just like how Anthony Davis guarded Jokic early in Game 1, Adebayo will have to meet him early in possessions, which will likely require him to be further from the rim.

Sportsbooks have set his lines at 8.5 rebounds with heavy juice, indicating he won't record a double-double. Adebayo averages 9.1 rebounds per game on the road in the playoffs and has failed to go over 11 rebounds in nine of 10 road games, giving this a great hit rate for a parlay piece.

Aaron Gordon 10+ Points 

Aaron Gordon played for 41 minutes in his last game against the Lakers and scored 22 points, including three 3-pointers. Although we shouldn't anticipate the same level of success in Game 1 of the Finals, he's still in a favorable position to score against the Miami Heat.

Gordon is averaging 13.8 points per game in the playoffs and has scored 10 or more points in all eight home games.

Gordon should be able to effectively cut to the basket and take advantage of his height mismatch against Max Strus.

Denver Nuggets Moneyline 

Don't overthink it. As great as Miami has been on the road in previous Game 1s, it's tough to envision them stealing one in Ball Arena, especially factoring in Denver league's best 18-4 record with a rest advantage.

The Nuggets have proven to be a challenging opponent when playing at home in front of their fans. In the regular season, they boasted an impressive 34-7 home record, which was second-best in the league. During the playoffs, Denver is 8-0 at home.
