NBA DFS Picks: PrizePicks Promo, Predictions and Parlay for 1/27

While everyone is gearing up for a big weekend in the NFL, we still have some NBA DFS picks for this Thursday night slate. It’s a tiny NBA DFS slate, with only two games on the schedule. However, the four teams playing tonight still feature plenty of star power.

Let’s take a look at a few of the best NBA DFS picks on PrizePicks tonight. But first, let’s discuss PrizePicks.

PrizePicks Promo and Payout Breakdown

At PrizePicks, users string together NBA DFS player props into a parlay up to five legs. These picks can be in a single stat or picking over/under fantasy basketball points. After forming a parlay, users can select to play it using Flex Play or Power Play.

Flex Play Payout

For Flex Play, users can build a parlay up to five legs and still be paid out if one or more of their picks is incorrect. Of course, less risk means less reward, so the payout is lower:

  • 2 Leg Parlay: 2 Correct = 2x Entry, 1 Correct = 0.5x
  • 3 Leg Parlay: 3 Correct = 2.25x, 2 Correct = 1.25x
  • 4 Leg Parlay: 4 Correct = 5x, 3 Correct = 1.5x
  • 5 Leg Parlay: 5 Correct = 10x, 4 Correct = 2x, 3 Correct = 0.4x

Power Play Payout

Power Play is much like a parlay at a sportsbook, where it is all or nothing. Since the risk is higher, the payout is as well.

  • 2 Leg Parlay: 3x Entry Fee
  • 3 Leg Parlay: 5x Entry Fee
  • 4 Leg Parlay: 10x Entry Fee

NBA DFS Picks, Predictions and Parlay on PrizePicks

Joel Embiid Over 32.5 Points

Joel Embiid faces off with the Lakers tonight, which is a matchup he certainly can take advantage of. Embiid has scored 28 or more points in five straight matchups against the Lakers, which is five of his six career matchups against them. He is also coming off a stretch in which he has scored 40 or more points in three of his past four games. Look for him to keep the strong play going tonight.

LeBron James Over 28.5 Points

LeBron James is also trying to will his team to wins lately, scoring 30+ points in three of the past four games. He also dropped 34 points the last time he faced the 76ers. Anthony Davis will still be limited tonight, and Russell Westbrook is Russell Westbrook, so LeBron will need to carry the team again. In a game that’s projected to be close, look for both LeBron and Embiid to be active down the stretch.

Tyrese Maxey Over 16.5 Points

With Shake Milton and Seth Curry both out, and obviously Ben Simmons not playing, Tyrese Maxey has a large role for this Sixers team. In fact, he has played over 40 minutes in two of his past three games. He has also scored at least 18 points in three of his past five games. Tonight, he faces a Lakers team that is very beatable.

The Lakers’ attention will be on the 76ers frontcourt, which should give Maxey plenty of open looks. All he has to do is knock them down.

Karl-Anthony Towns Over 9.5 Rebounds

The success of Karl-Anthony Towns against the Warriors is well documented. A big reason for this has been their lack of a solid big man. Their uptempo play over the years has also helped him hit the over on many NBA player props. Towns has faced the Warriors twice this season, averaging 21.5 points and 11.5 rebounds over the two games. Towns has totaled 11 or more rebounds in eight of his past nine matchups against Golden State, dating back to 2018.

With Draymond Green out of the lineup, it should make this NBA DFS pick even better.
