In what is rightfully considered the headliner of the NBA’s play-in tournament, the No. 7 seed Los Angeles Lakers will host the No. 8 Golden State Warriors for the chance to secure the seventh seed and play the No. 2 seed Phoenix Suns. Here’s a look at the player parlay market for a game featuring some of the NBA’s biggest stars in LeBron James, Stephen Curry and Anthony Davis.
Player to record a double-double and the win
Anthony Davis: Yes +170, No -230
Stephen Curry: Yes +900, No -2500
Draymond Green: Yes +450, No -715
LeBron James: Yes +125, No -162
The Lakers are favored to win the game, leading to some huge numbers against Curry and Green. Neither James nor Davis is averaging a double-double on the season, but both are strong candidates to log one here. Davis offers slightly more value at +170, but James is the bigger threat given his all-around ability. If Davis is closing in on a double-double, there’s a good chance James is also nearing one.
Player to score number of points in a win
Stephen Curry 37+ Points and a win: Yes +350, No -500
LeBron James 27+ Points and a win: Yes +140, No -180
Anthony Davis 26+ Points and a win: +140, -180
Andrew Wiggins 21+ Points and a win: +350, -500
Davis is averaging 20.6 points per game since his return to the floor, but getting to 26+ is going to be a challenge. James is averaging 25.0 points per game this season, but only has two games under his belt before the contest. Curry’s point total is insane at 37+, but might be worth the value if you’re picking the Warriors to win the game. Wiggins is averaging 21.5 points per game in his last 11, but Golden State is the underdog in this one. None of these player parlays look particularly great, but James 27+ points is most likely to pay off.
