After a relatively quiet Thursday with just two games, the NBA returns with a bold slate this Friday as 24 teams hit the hardwood. I analyzed all 12 games and came up with my 3 favorite bets which I combined into a mega paying parlay. We just met ours +1111 NBA Mega Game on Wednesday, so let’s do 2 in a row now!
Also read ours NBA selection on the spread and totals for each of tonight’s 12 games.
Philly 76ers -3 (-105)
Detroit Pistons ML (+225)
New Orleans Pelicans -4.5 (-110)
Betting odds: +1111
Philadelphia 76ers -3 vs. New York Knicks (-105)
The night begins in Philadelphia, where the 76ers host a Knicks team they have thoroughly dominated in recent seasons. Overall, 8 of the 10 most recent encounters between these teams have all gone to Philadelphia. If we expand that to the last 19 games, that number jumps to an impressive 17 wins for the 76ers. The Knicks aren’t getting any better at games at the Wells Fargo Center, where they’ve won just once in their last 11 visits.
Granted James Harden is injured and won’t be available in tonight’s game but Philly are bringing back Joel Embiid after a short illness and he has scored at least 27 points in 4 of the last 5 games against New York. I expect the 76ers will do their job here as the Knicks are not looking good at the moment after losing 3 games in a row averaging 12.3 points per game.

Detroit Pistons ML over Cleveland Cavaliers (+225)
Next I have the biggest surprise of the night in Detroit, as the Pistons defeat the in-form Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs have been great from the start, but they can’t win forever. Fatigue is bound to catch up with them as 3 of their last 5 games have all gone into overtime and in 2 of those games against the Celtics they wasted a ton of energy trying to get the win.
Detroit won both home games against the Cavs by 10 and 3 points last season, and even though they’re 2-7 this season, they still have a .500 record at Little Caesars Arena. They came very close to beating Giannis and the Bucks away from home a few games ago and just three games ago they beat the defending champions Warriors 128-114 at home. With a few punches to Donovan Mitchell, Raul Neto and Darius Garland, the Pistons have a solid opportunity to bring the Cavaliers back to earth.

New Orleans Pelicans -4.5 over Golden State Warriors (-110)
Finally, we have the Pelicans at home against the struggling Warriors, who lost just a point in Orlando last night. It’s been a disappointing start to the season for Steph Curry and co as they have yet to win an away game in 5 attempts. Tonight they face off against a Pelicans side hungry for a home win after a heartbreaking loss in their last game to the Lakers.
New Orleans won 1 of the 2 meetings last season at the Smoothie King Arena and I really like their chances here with a healthy Zion Williamson. Brandon Ingram could also make a comeback, although that will be decided closer to tip-off. Of the last 10 meetings, the Warriors have won 6, but all of that is out the window as they’ve only covered the spread twice in 9 games this season. Give me the pelicans to win by 5 points on their home floor.
