There are seven games the Thursday NBA scheduled that the SportsLine Projection Model has simulated. It looked through expected defensive battles like the Clippers vs. the Lakers (O/U: 210.5 at William Hill Sportsbook) and expected barnburners like the Pacers vs. the Hawks (O/U: 240). 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 $9,200 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 entered Week 20 of the 2020-21 NBA schedule on a stunning 97-62 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 28 percent of the time. That works out to an expected return of $196 for a $100 bet.

The Mavericks are 10-2 against the spread in their last 12 games when the spread was between -5 to -2. The Pistons are 13-5 against the spread in their last 18 games vs. teams that win less than 45 percent of games. The Warriors are 6-11 against the spread in their last 17 games vs teams allowing more than 102 points per game.

Before making any NBA bets, you should visit SportsLine to see what the model is saying about Mavericks vs. Nets, Pistons vs. Grizzlies, and Warriors vs. Thunder. Combine all three of these picks for a shot at a huge payday.
