There are six NBA games on Thursday that the SportsLine Projection Model has simulated. It looked through expected blowouts like the nine points that the Magic are getting at William Hill Sportsbook against the Pelicans and tight contests like the tilt between the Bulls and the Hornets (+1). After going through those games and more, we've found three games that make for a great NBA parlay.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times, and it has returned over $9,200 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past two-plus seasons. The model is up over $1,200 on its top-rated picks this season, and dating back to last year, it entered Week 18 of the 2020-21 NBA schedule on a stunning 96-60 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.
Here are the Projection Model's top three picks for Thursday's games:
|Home Team||Away Team||Handicap||Over/Under||Model Confidence|
|DAL||LAL||-3.5||216||66%||See Pick Here|
|MIL||PHI||-8||225.5||66%||See Pick Here|
|SA||DET||-8.5||216.5||61%||See Pick Here|
Despite paying out $696 on a $100 bet, the SportsLine model sees this parlay winning an amazing 27 percent of the time. That works out to an expected return of $185 for a $100 bet.
The Mavericks are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games when the spread was between +2 to +5. The Bucks are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games vs. teams that win more than 55 percent of games. The Spurs are 7-13-1 against the spread in their last 21 games vs. teams that win 45-55 percent of games.
Before making any individual game bets, be sure to visit SportsLine to see what the model is saying about Mavericks vs. Lakers, Bucks vs. 76ers, and Spurs vs. Pistons. Combine all three of these picks for a shot at a huge payday.
