NBA Basketball Picks: Handicapping Angles – Weekly Free Parlay

NBA Weekly Free Parlay Picks

The NBA regular season continues to wind down in preparation for the start of the playoffs later this month. Turning towards this Tuesday’s slate of games, I have dug deep into the stats and betting trends to come up with a pair of picks that come together perfectly for this week’s NBA parlay for Cappers Picks based on NBA betting odds by BetOnline.

Game 1: Golden State Warriors vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Pointspread: Golden State -5
Total Line: 205

The Warriors have already locked-up the top seed in the Western Conference with a NBA-best record of 63-14, but they have to be in somewhat of a foul mood coming into Tuesday night’s road game after getting hammered by San Antonio 107-92 as 4.5-point road underdogs this past Sunday.

The loss snapped a 12-game straight-up winning streak in which Golden State went a highly profitable 10-2 ATS.

New Orleans has climbed to within a half-game of Oklahoma City for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West despite Saturday’s 99-90 loss to Portland as a five-point road underdog. The Pelicans are now 4-1 SU in their last five games while going 3-2 ATS. As much as they need this game, they are catching Golden State at the wrong time. You would have to go all the way back to late January to find the last time the Warriors lost back-to-back games SU.

To cement my pick even more, the Warriors bring a SU 10-game winning streak over New Orleans into this matchup while going 7-1-1 ATS in the last nine meetings.

Game 2: San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder

Pointspread: San Antonio -3
Total Line: 208

San Antonio’s victory over the Warriors this past Sunday was its seventh in a row both SU and ATS and over its last 11 games it is 10-1 both ways. The Spurs have been extremely solid on either end of the court during this seven-game run with an average of 107.9 points per game while holding its opponents to just 87.6 points. Kawhi Leonard led all scorers in Sunday’s win with 26 points and he continues to set the pace for this team with 16.3 PPG on the year.

The Thunder’s current slide reached three games both SU and ATS with Sunday’s 115-112 loss to Houston as one-point home underdogs despite Russell Westbrook’s game-high 40 points.

He has now averaged 29.2 PPG in his last six outings, but all the Thunder have to show for his efforts is a 1-5 mark both SU and ATS. Oklahoma City continues to light-up the scoreboard with an average of a 103.6 PPG, but it is now ranked 21st in the NBA in points allowed; giving-up an average of 101.4 points a game. The Thunder are another team that desperately needs a win, but this is no time to start going against the Spurs given their current form. I am closing-out the backend of this Parlay with another favorite on the road with a play on San Antonio for Tuesday night.
