With only one game of NBA playoff action Wednesday, the selection of PrizePicks is thinner than normal. That said, there are still a handful of numbers to target.
Speaking of “PrizePicks” in general, it is a creative new way to parlay picks based on expected fantasy point production. To dive into the ins and outs of everything PrizePicks, FTN’s Tyler Loechner wrote a comprehensive App Review.
How to play PrizePicks NBA
For the sake of this NBA article, the format is simple.
You pick two, three or four players and predict whether they will go over or under their projected fantasy point total, or their single-stat total. The single-stat totals can be chosen from points, assists, rebounds or three-pointers made.
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. This provides an added level of security on your entry where you can decrease your multiplier received if you miss one of your entries but hit on all of the others.
Picks lock at 9:50 p.m. ET on PrizePicks for the game.
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 (Wednesday 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.
