Thursday’s Best NBA Same Game Parlay Bets
(Odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook)
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Indiana Pacers
- Leg 1: Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 28.5 Points (-105)
- Leg 2: Giannis Antetokounmpo 10+ Rebounds (-285)
- Leg 3: Bennedict Mathurin Over 15+ Points (+120)
Similar to yesterday’s Charlotte and Washington contest, this is an ideal game for an SGP on paper. Both of these teams rank in the top six in pace and bottom six in defensive net rating. That combination should lead to plenty of scoring and stat padding, hence the 241.5 point total.
Giannis is going to feast tonight. No team allows more points in the paint than the Pacers. Giannis has 25+ points in seven consecutive games against the Pacers, averaging 35.7 points per game. He has 30 points in five of those seven games as well. Additionally, the “Greek Freak” has cleaned up the glass in these games against Indiana as well. He has 10+ rebounds in six of these seven games averaging 12.8 boards per game.
The addition of Damian Lillard is a huge boost to the Milwaukee offense, but defensively they have struggled. They have particularly had a tough time against shooting guards allowing the seventh most points to the position. We just saw Marcus Sasser go off for 26 points in 29 minutes against them last night. Cade Cunningham also had 33 points in the contest.
The game prior, Cam Thomas put up 45. Other guards to find success against them include Jalen Brunson (45 points), Quentin Grimes (17), Dennis Schroader (24), Tyler Herro (35), Trae Young (20), Dejounte Murray (15), Bogdan Bogdanovic (17), Tyrese Maxey (31), and Kelly Oubre Jr. (27). Bennedict Mathurin is coming off a season-best 22 points across 38 minutes last night against Utah, and should be able to carry that success over in today’s game.
Parlay Odds: +425
Atlanta Hawks vs. Orlando Magic
- Leg 1: Trae Young Over 9.5 Assists (-140)
- Leg 2: Trae Young Over 21.5 Points (-175)
- Leg 3: Paolo Banchero Over 21.5 Points (-125)
Ranking third in pace, the Hawks will look to push the tempo of this game in Mexico City. Leading the way for them is none other than Trae Young, one of the leading assist men in the NBA. So far this season he has 10+ assists in five of seven games. In four games against Orlando last season he put up 13, 14, 16, and 13 assists.
Without Wendell Carter Jr.’s presence down low, Trae should also be able to score with relative ease in the paint. The Magic have permitted the 6th most points per game to opposing Point Guards. Young has scored 20+ points in six of seven games this season and has gone over this line in five of them.
Paolo Banchero got off to a rough scoring start to his season but has found his way back. Over his last three games, he has scored 30, 25, and 22 points. He should be able to carry over this scoring into tonight’s game given the matchup on hand. The Hawks have allowed the second most points per game to opposing Power Forwards.
Parlay Odds: +360
