Knicks vs. Cavaliers Correlated Same Game Parlay (+155)

  • Donovan Mitchell 25+ Points (-525)
  • Donovan Mitchell 4+ Assists (-300)
  • Jarrett Allen 10+ Rebounds (-260)

In their first postseason battle against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the New York Knicks stole a game in Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, winning their first road playoff game since 1999!

With Donovan Mitchell and his team’s back against the wall down a game, I figured now would be a great team to fire on a three-leg NBA Same Game Parlay that features two Cavaliers players for Game 2.

Donovan Mitchell 25+ Points (-525)

We start with the obvious. It’s simple, if the Cavaliers get this much needed win, their leader Donovan Mitchell needs to step up in the moments that matter most.

The Cavs guard is the most experienced starter on the roster and has surpassed at least 25 or more points in 13 of his last 17 playoff games.

Mitchell averages 31.8 points per game in four meetings against the New York Knicks. Spida has turned on the intensity at home in those games, scoring 38 and 42 points, respectively.

Donovan Mitchell 4+ Assists (-300)

I will stick to Mitchell for the second leg but focus on his facilitating now.

Mitchell’s 35.4% Usage Fate ranked third-highest amongst all qualified NBA players who got at least 15 minutes in Game 1. The ball will be in his hands often, and I expect Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau to lean in on blitzing him on pick & roll opportunities in tonight’s game.

Spida dished the ball out for eight assists on 13 potentials on Sunday. He averages 6.5 assists per game in four meetings against the New York Knicks, recording at least five or more assists in all four games.

On top of that, the Louisville product has recorded at least five assists in 15 of his last 16 playoff games.

Jarrett Allen 10+ Rebounds

In a shortened rotation which resulted in playing 42.9 minutes, Allen grabbed 14 rebounds, including nine contested rebounds, converting on 14 of his 28 chances (50% rate).

Jarrett Allen is averaging 14.0 rebounds per game in the four meetings with the New York Knicks, exceeding 10+ rebounds in all four games. With his frontcourt partner, Evan Mobley, stretched out on the floor on defensive guarding Julius Randle, Allen can stay inside, matching up on Mitchell Robinson for closer-distance rebounds.

After the Game 1 loss, coach J.B. Bickerstaff addressed the media, saying he was disappointed in the team’s lack of effort to control the boards. The Knicks grabbed 17 offensive rebounds which were converted into 23 second-chance points.

With that in mind, I’d expect a more concerted effort from Allen to collect the boards in Game 2.
