The 2022-2023 NBA season motors on with a set of games on Sunday, November 27th, with 18 teams set to take the court. Take a look at a strong parlay for tonight's action, featuring Giannis Antetokounmpo, Ja Morant, and Paolo Banchero.
NBA Parlay Leg #1: Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 32.5 Points (-106)
Giannis Antetokounmpo has been among the best players in the NBA this season, averaging 31.0 points per game, 11.4 rebounds per game, 5.5 assists per game, 0.9 steals per game, and 1.1 blocks per game while shooting 53.1% from the field. The Milwaukee Bucks superstar has been scoring the ball at a ridiculous rate over the last three games, averaging 37.0 points per game while shooting 62.0% from the field. Additionally, he has scored at least 36 points in each contest. While the Dallas Mavericks have been a top-ten unit defensively, ranking second in opponents points per game and eighth in defensive rating, they simply lack the size needed to slow Antetokounmpo down. Look for the two-time MVP to continue his strong play by scoring at least 33 points.
NBA Parlay Leg #2: Ja Morant Over 28.5 Points (-119)
Ja Morant has also gotten off to a great start to the season, averaging 28.6 points per game, 6.1 rebounds per game and 7.3 assists per game while shooting 47.3% from the field, 38.5% from three-point range, and 75.2% from the free-throw line. To his advantage, he will be facing a poor New York Knicks defense that ranks just 25th in opponents points per game and 23rd in defensive rating. In the Memphis Grizzlies' season opener against the Knicks, Morant went off for 34 points. Not only do the Knicks have a poor defensive unit, the fact that stars like Morant seem to love playing at Madison Square Garden will further dent their spirits. Watch out for Morant to have a strong performance at the most famous arena in American sport by scoring at least 29 points.
NBA Parlay Leg #3: Paolo Banchero Over 20.5 Points (-123)
Paolo Banchero has performed as advertised after being selected first overall in the 2022 NBA Draft. Banchero has averaged 23.2 points per game, 7.9 rebounds per game, and 3.6 assists per game while shooting 45.9% from the field. While he scored just 19 points in his return from injury after a seven-game absence, Banchero should have a much better night after knocking off some rust. Look for the Orlando Magic rookie to score at least 21 points against a depleted Philadelphia 76ers squad.
