There is plenty of conference tournament action around college basketball this weekend to distract you,but don’t forget about some good NBA betting options. Here are three games I would parlay together on the moneyline – all on the home side.

Top NBA Parlay Picks for the Weekend (March 11-12)

Philadelphia 76ers at LA Clippers, Saturday

Athletes are all about routines. So when a routine is broken, athletes tend to struggle. The start time of this game is an unusual 3:30 p.m. ET. I believe that will throw off the visiting 76ers since they have been traveling out West and used to night games. The Clippers are at home so it won’t affect them as much and they have played a few of these 3:30 p.m. ET games this season. L.A. lost in Philadelphia earlier this season, 121-110, and thus will be looking for some payback. The Sixers rallied from 19 points down. That was Blake Griffin’s first game back from a long injury absence for the Clippers. He was a bit rusty but isn’t now. In addition, Doc Rivers didn’t coach for the Clippers due to an illness. L.A. has won four in a row at home in the series. Clippers forward Luc Mbah a Moute and Sixers center Joel Embiid are two of three active players (Pascal Siakam, TOR) and four players all-time (Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje) to hail from Cameroon. Embiid, the stellar Philly rookie, is out for the season, though.

New York Knicks at Detroit Pistons, Saturday

Detroit is 1-1 against the New York Knicks this season. Detroit has won five of the last six games at home against the Knicks. The most recent meeting was a 105-102 Knicks home win. New York pushed its lead to 12 (94-82) with 6:56 left in the game, but Detroit used a 20-10 run to cut the Knicks’ led to just two (104-102) with 31.7 seconds left. Derrick Rose split a pair of free throws with 3.6 seconds left to put New York up 105-102. The Pistons had a chance to tie the game, but Kentavious Caldwell-Pope’s three-pointer missed at the buzzer. New York outrebounded Detroit 52-40 and forced 11 turnovers for 13 points. This will be New York’s final game ever at the Palace of Auburn Hills. In the first meeting there this season, the Pistons rolled 102-89 over NY. Detroit was paced by Tobias Harris’ 25 points and 10 rebounds over 36 minutes for a double-double. Marcus Morris recorded 22 points on 9-14 shooting and four rebounds over 32 minutes. Andre Drummond added nine points and 13 rebounds.

New Orleans Pelicans at Charlotte Hornets, Saturday

The New Orleans franchise was originally known as the New Orleans Hornets after the franchise relocated from Charlotte. The franchise officially re-branded itself as the Pelicans prior to the start of the 2013-14 season, relinquishing the Hornets moniker to the new Charlotte franchise, which was an expansion team that debuted as the Charlotte Bobcats in the 2004-05 season. Furthermore, Charlotte reclaimed the history and records from 1988-2002 – which had originally followed the team to New Orleans. The Hornets have never won a season series against the Pelicans. NO won the first meeting 121-116 in OT. Anthony Davis finished with 38 points, 16 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks. Jrue Holiday added 22 points and nine assists. Kemba Walker scored a team-high 25 points to go with seven rebounds and five assists for the Hornets, who will split the season series with a win here.
