NBA San Antonio Spurs vs New York Knicks same game parlay picks: Randle powers Knicks to 2nd straight win at +406 odds




We just saw the Knicks spoil James Harden’s Clippers debut with a 111-97 win over LA, now they’re going for back-to-back wins against Victor Wembanyama and his San Antonio Spurs. Tip-off at Madison Square Garden is on ESPN at 7.30 ET, I’ve prepared a Same Game Parlay which is available below.

Let’s dive into my bet now!

Over 224 Total Points (-112)

Julius Randle to Score 20+ Points (+105)

Jalen Brunson 2+ Made Threes (-195)

Same Game Parlay odds: +406

Over 224 Total Points (-112)

It will be a clash between two teams with vastly different playing styles. The Knicks like to slow things down, they rank 24th in pace averaging 99.1 possessions per game. They also like to rely on their defense to win games, only the Minnesota Timberwolves have a better defensive rating through the first two weeks or so of the new season. San Antonio, on the other hand, loves to run and their average of 102.2 possessions per game ranks them 7th in the league. You won’t see a lot of defense played by this team on Wednesday – they are 29th in defensive rating, and the Knicks will try to take advantage of that here. In addition to that 4 of the 6 most meetings have gone over the total, while for San Antonio this has happened in 4 of their last 5 away games overall. With a somewhat modest projected total of 224 points, which has been exceeded in all but 1 of 7 Spurs games this season, I think backing the points is the correct call here.

Julius Randle to Score 20+ Points (+105)

Scoring 20 points was just another day at the office for Julius Randle last season. He’s done so in 56 of the 77 games played and although he’s off to a somewhat slower start to this season, I’m confident he’s starting to turn things around. Because of that slow start we are getting a really generous price of +105 odds for him to clear this line vs San Antonio. Monday’s performance vs the Clippers is a clear indicator of that. He finished with 27 points on 9-for-12 shooting, and has also grabbed 10 rebounds. He’s cleared this line easily in 3 of the last 5 meetings with San Antonio, last season he even had a 41 point game against them in late December. I’ve mentioned the Spurs’ pace earlier, we can expect inflated stats across the box score in this one and I think Randle will make the most out of his potential match-up with the inexperienced Wembanyama trying to guard him.

Jalen Brunson 2+ Made Threes (-195)

After seeing him torch the Bucks for 45 points on Friday, Brunson had his worst scoring output of the season the very next Game as he scored just 7 against the Clippers. The Knicks still won the Game by 14, so I’m sure he won’t be too bothered by it. However, going just 2-for-12 from the field is very unlike him, so I am expecting a bounce back performance here. San Antonio is dead last in opponent three-point percentage, being the only team in the NBA that allows opponents to shoot over 40% from distance. In their last 3 Games teams are shooting a whopping 46.6% from behind the three-point line, so even the Knicks who have struggled a bit from distance this season should improve their numbers here. Only twice in his last 7 vs San Antonio he failed to cash on this line, he’s shooting 41.2% from deep during that stretch. Count on Brunson to deliver here.
