Old rivalries reignite as LeBron James and the Lakers face off against Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Semifinals. This matchup marks the fifth time these two megastars duel in the playoffs, so I expect this series to be a thriller as advertised.

For tonight’s same game parlay, I have selected three players whose playing time is guaranteed. I have also lowered their alternate lines to make them safer choices for this parlay.

NBA Same Game Parlay Odds & Pick

The Parlay: (+130 at DraftKings)

  • LeBron James Over 4.5 Assists (-240)
  • Stephen Curry Over 3.5 Assists (-650)
  • Andrew Wiggins 15+ Points (-260)

LeBron James (LAL) Over 4.5 Assists (-240)

In the regular season, James averaged 6.8 assists per game on 35.3 minutes of playing time and was second behind D’Angelo Russell with a 26.2 Assist Rate, according to the CourtIQ.

Tonight’s game against the Warriors marks the first matchup of the best-of-seven series. Typically, the King likes to feel the opposing team’s defensive schemes and get his teammates involved before attacking. For this reason, LeBron has recorded five or more assists in twelve straight Game 1’s to open a series.

Stephen Curry Over 3.5 Assists (-650)

I am willing to drink a little juice here. It’s not a fun parlay if I don’t include LeBron’s rival in it, right? In the regular season, Curry averaged 6.3 assists per game on 34.3 minutes of playing time. He closed the season by notching four or more assists in 17 of his last 20 home games (85%) in Chase Center.

During the playoffs, Curry has seen an additional 4.7 minutes of playing time and averaged 6.3 assists per game on 10.1 potential dimes. Four assists are a safe floor for him tonight.

Andrew Wiggins 15+ Points (-260)

Andrew Wiggins’s return after missing an extended period of time has been a big reason for the Warriors advancing past the Kings in the first round. His consistency on offense and attention to detail on defense allow him to log big minutes for Golden State. It is safe to assume Steve Kerr will rely on his presence to match LeBron James.

The former #1 overall pick has scored 15 or more points in 17 of the 18 games this season (94%) when playing at least 32 minutes on the court. His point total for this matchup is set at 17.5 and juiced to the over as it is likely he continues his success in Game 1.
