NBA Parlay & SGP Picks: Odds and Predictions for Wednesday's Playoff Games

Derrick White had an off game in his last outing, but projections are calling for him to bounce back strong in Game 5. Our NBA parlay picks think the Over on his points total makes an excellent leg.

Nothing gets you over the hump like a pulse-pounding NBA parlay for Wednesday’s playoff action, and we have a pair of thrillers to choose from.

I've taken three NBA picks spanning across both games to put together a nice NBA parlay pick for this May 15 slate. As always, recognize the risk when making parlays and bet only bet what you can afford to lose.

Best NBA parlay picks for Wednesday

NBA parlay pick

Darius Garland Under 19.5 points

Derrick White Over 13.5 points

Kyrie Irving Over 21.5 points

Darius Garland is coming off a 30-point effort in Game 4, which has pumped his points prop from a norm of 16.5 to 19.5 for Game 5. I don’t expect Garland to shoot the ball 27 times like he did last time out and all but one of the seven projections consulted had him scoring less than 19.5 points. My number comes out to just above 17 points from the Cavs’ point guard.

Derrick White has been a problem for the Boston Celtics postseason foes but is coming off a stinker in which he finished 1-for-6 from the field for only five points over 30 minutes. That has his points prop coming back to earth after a sizzling start to the playoffs. Models all sit north of 14 points, with the majority at 15+, and number bubbles out to 15.7 points.

Kyrie Irving has been hit and miss so far this series, scoring 20, nine, 22, and nine points in the opening four games. So, he’s trending toward another 20+ effort in Game 5, right?

Irving threw himself on the grenade after the Game 4 loss, telling the media it’s his responsibility to play better as a team leader. Player models believe so too, with Kyrie projected to score between 22.3 and 28.4 points against OKC tonight. My forecast comes out to closer to 24 points, which gets us over his scoring total of 21.5 O/U.

Today's NBA same-game parlay picks

Our betting experts have searched through today's NBA odds to find your best SGP bets for both games on Wednesday's playoff slate:

Cavaliers vs Celtics same-game parlay (SGP)

Sam Hauser Over 3.5 points

Payton Pritchard Over 8.5 points

Boston Celtics -15.5

If the game isn't competitive in the fourth quarter and the Celtics are running with their backups, not only should Hauser see increased minutes and usage, but so should Payton Pritchard. It'll take the same type of game for both players to see elevated minutes, and for that reason, I'm pairing them together in this SGP.

I'm also pairing the Hauser and Pritchard props with the Celtics covering the spread of 15.5 points, and I think this leg is fairly self-explanatory. A Celtics blowout helps the first two legs of our bet. I also wouldn't be opposed to using an alternate spread on the Celtics to increase your payout.

Mavericks vs Thunder same-game parlay (SGP)

Daniel Gafford Over 9.5 points

Daniel Gafford Over 6.5 rebounds 

Kyrie Irving Over 5.5 assists

Three of Gafford’s four field goals in Game 4 came off Kyrie Irving assists, the fourth coming from Luka Doncic. Leaning on Gafford in any respect should come with a nod toward one of Dallas’s two lead playmakers.
