There are two NBA games tonight, and that means limited sports betting. One of the most popular forms of betting is same-game parlays. Same-game parlays are pretty simple. Pair together multiple bets to increase your odds. Get all legs correct, and cash out.
Let us look at the best same-game parlays tonight.
Today’s NBA Same Game Parlay Bets
Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Lakers
- Leg 1: Jamal Murray Over 2.5 Three-Pointers (-160)
- Leg 2: Christian Wood Over 4.5 Rebounds (-115)
- Leg 3: D’Angelo Russell Under 12.5 Points (+135)
Jamal Murray dominated the Lakers during the playoffs last season. That included shooting the ball from deep. Murray will continue that dominance into the beginning of this season. The beginning of the season is all about picking played with the potential to have betting value. One of those players is Murray.
Christian Wood averaged 7.3 rebounds in a limited role with the Dallas Mavericks last season. Woods will benefit from the change of scenery. That will increase the number of rebounds that he is getting per game. He will rotate onto the court while Jokic is resting. That will help him get more boards tonight.
Consistency has been an issue with Russell since he started in the league. The Nuggets are a great defensive team, and that will limit Russell’s shot opportunities. This leg is the riskier leg of this parlay but gives it plenty of betting value for a high-risk, high-reward bet.

Golden State Warriors vs. Phoenix Suns
- Leg 1: Andrew Wiggins 1+ Steal (-180)
- Leg 2: Kevin Durant Over 1.5 Three-Pointers (-175)
- Leg 3: Jusuf Nurkic Over 10 Rebounds (+150)
Andrew Wiggins has grown during his time at Golden State. That includes his defensive prowess. He has averaged one steal per game during his entire career, but that improvement on defense gives him an even better chance at getting a steal tonight against the Suns.
Bradley Beal is unlikely to play tonight. That means his shooting opportunities will get split among the rest of the team. Those opportunities will go to Kevin Durant and Devin Booker. I like the size advantage that Durant has tonight against the Warriors, and that will give him more opportunity to shoot the ball.
The Warriors play a smaller lineup. That lineup will give 7-foot Nurkic plenty of opportunities to rebound. He has averaged over nine rebounds during the last seven seasons. That means plus money is good value for bettors since he has done this numerous times.
