6-Leg Parlay (+537)
- Hornets to win vs. Pistons
- LaMelo Ball 20+ points, 8+ assists, 6+ rebounds
- Pelicans to win vs. Magic
- Brandon Ingram 25+ points
FanDuel, 2:10 PM CT
Alex Barutha: This is just the ninth time all season Charlotte has been favored at home, and it's against a poor Detroit team that's beat up, missing Bojan Bogdanovic, Jaden Ivey and Jalen Duren. That's enough for me to assume LaMelo is in for a strong game. He hasn't been shy across the past six games, averaging 25.2 points on 21.0 shots, 11.3 assists and 8.8 rebounds (45.3 P+R+A) in 38.8 minutes.
Pelicans wins and losses correlate strongly with Ingram's performances. In wins, he averages 25.8 points on 51.7 FG% compared to 20.3 points on 41.3 FG% in losses. The Pelicans have been reeling and the Magic have been scrappy, but I don't think they have anyone truly capable of locking down Ingram.

Malcolm Brogdon O15.5 points at NY Knicks
DraftKings Sportsbook, 3pm CT
Nick Whalen: The Celtics are down Jaylen Brown (personal), so that should create strong opportunity for Brogdon to see both a jump in minutes and scoring responsibility. Brogdon has gone over 15.5 points in six of the last seven games Brown has missed dating back to January. The veteran is coming off of a quiet outing against Philly on Saturday (5 points, 2-6 FG), but prior to that he'd posted 24, 25 and 26 points in consecutive games – coincidentally, Brown missed two of those contests.
