February 22nd provides us with a lighter NBA slate than we’re used to on a Monday, but six games is more than enough to take advantage on PrizePicks.
Speaking of “PrizePicks” in general, it is a creative new way to parlay picks based on expected fantasy point production.
The format is simple. You pick two, three, or four players and predict whether or not they will go over or under their projected fantasy point total.
When parlaying the players, the larger your parlay, the better the payout:
Two-pick entry pays 3x (max entry: $400)
Three-pick entry pays 5x (max entry: $200)
Four-pick entry pays 10x (max entry: $100)
As a bonus offer, there is a “flex play” option if you choose to run a 4-man parlay. This will provide some security, as you can earn 1.5x your buy-in if three of your four picks hit.
The first game locks at 8:10 PM ET on PrizePicks.
An important note - these lines can shift over the course of the day leading up until lock. The lines that I am quoting are at the time of writing (Monday morning). I will be in the PrizePicks discord channel (which is FREE!) up until lock to help out with how to adjust to the changing projections.
Scoring breakdown for PrizePicks contests can be found here.
