Adam Thompson has a three-way parlay that could pay off huge Friday
Friday's seven-game NBA schedule is highlighted by the season debut of DeMarcus Cousins for the Golden State Warriors (-7) as they head to Los Angeles to face the Clippers. LaMarcus Aldridge and Karl-Anthony Towns face off as the Spurs visit the Timberwolves (-1), and Anthony Davis and the Pelicans take on Damian Lillard and the Blazers (-3) in Portland. Fans across the nation will be placing wagers, but before making your own NBA picks, you'll want to see what SportsLine data engineer Stephen Oh is saying. Oh is going huge, putting together a three-team parlay of best bets that could return a massive 6-1 payout. If you risk $100, it would return $600. If you go big, it could be a life-changing extravaganza.
SportsLine's top-ranked NBA handicapper enters Friday on a sizzling 29-16 run on NBA picks, fattening the wallets of those who tailed him. The SportsLine engineer and renowned data scientist who co-founded Accuscore, Oh uses a data-driven approach to crush sportsbooks. He's running profits in the NFL, NBA, college basketball and NHL, and now the numbers have been crunched for three big plays Friday. We'll give one key part of his NBA parlay away: Oh is backing the Timberwolves (-1) at home against the Spurs.
He knows San Antonio has dropped three of five, including a 10-point defeat at mediocre Memphis. Among playoff contenders, the Spurs have been one of the poorest road teams in the NBA at just 8-14 overall and under .500 against the spread.
Minnesota, meanwhile, has won and covered four of its last six games, and they're a solid 15-7 at home this season. The last time they played on their home floor, Towns went wild with 27 points and 27 rebounds, outplaying Anthony Davis in a 110-106 win over the Pelicans on Sunday.
This is the fourth matchup of these teams. San Antonio won both home meetings, while Minnesota rolled 128-89 in the Spurs' visit to Minnesota on Nov. 27. "The home team has covered the last six meetings in this series, and my numbers say the trend holds up Friday," Oh told SportsLine.
Oh's other two picks for Friday are also locked in, including one team that covers with ease and another in a game with a spread he says is way off. Find out everything you need to know to complete your NBA parlays only over at SportsLine.
