There are six games on the Thursday NBA schedule that the SportsLine Projection Model has simulated. It looked through expected defensive battles like Pistons vs. Mavericks (O/U: 214.5 at William Hill Sportsbook) and projected barnburners like Pacers vs. Nets (O/U: 243). After going through those games and more, we've found three games that make for a great parlay.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times and has returned over $9,400 in profit on its top-rated NBA picks over the past two-plus seasons. The model is up over $1,400 on its top-rated picks this season and entered Week 19 of the 2020-21 NBA schedule on a stunning 97-60 roll on top-rated NBA picks against the spread dating back to last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns.

Despite paying out $696 on a $100 bet, the SportsLine model sees this parlay winning an amazing 31 percent of the time. That works out to an expected return of $216 for a $100 bet.

The Pacers are 9-7 against the spread in their last 16 games vs. teams allowing more than 102 points per game. The Pistons are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games when the spread was between -10 to -7. The Nuggets are 9-11-1 against the spread in their last 21 games vs teams that win more than 55 percent of games.

Before making any individual game bets, you should visit SportsLine to see what the model is saying about Pacers vs. Nets, Pistons vs. Mavericks, and Nuggets vs. Raptors. Combine all three of these picks for a shot at a huge payday.
