NBA Picks and Parlays Thursday 21: Bucks, Mavericks Best Bets

We cashed big with our NBA parlay last night! Our NBA expert picks in March have been scorching hot. We hit on another Jalen Duren double-double, Domantas Sabonis triple-double, and the Suns to cover the spread at home against the 76ers. Thursday’s NBA schedule provides us with another opportunity to win big.

We have seven games scheduled to tip off Thursday night, and I’m going to build our parlay bet using a combination of NBA ATS picks and NBA player props. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it!

NBA Picks and Parlays Thursday 21: Bucks, Mavericks Best Bets

With so many games to break down and select our picks from, I’m loading up a four-leg parlay. You can always do a ton of your research, but the trick is I’ve already done that work for you. Let’s get into the best NBA bets for Thursday.


Thursday NBA Parlay Picks

1. NBA Parlay Pick: Domantas Sabonis to Record a Triple-Double (+209)

I’m firing up this season’s triple-double master as our first leg. Sabonis came through for us last night against the Raptors, and he has another incredible matchup tonight. The Kings are double-digit road favorites against the Washington Wizards. The Kings should dominate this game, and Sabonis can get whatever he wants. Much like the Raptors, Washington has no interest in winning basketball games.


Sabonis orchestrated a triple-double in the first meeting against the Wizards this season, and he has 24 triple-doubles in 68 games this season. Washington is allowing the most points and rebounds per game to opposing centers. The Wizards are tied with the most assists per game allowed, and that’s the category in which we’ll need Sabonis to reach double-digits to cash this leg. I’m confident he will stuff the stat sheet again tonight.



2. NBA Parlay Pick: Dallas Mavericks -14 vs Utah Jazz

This is a ton of points to be laying for the Mavericks, but the spot sets up perfectly for them tonight when they host the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are on the second night of a back-to-back; this is their fifth game in seven nights. This is a classic fade spot in the NBA. In the previous meeting, Utah beat Dallas 127-90, so I expect the Mavericks to come out motivated with revenge.

The Jazz are the fifth-worst team ATS on the road, going 14-19-1. Utah is 4-6-1 ATS on the second night of a back-to-back. The Mavs blew them out in the first meeting this season at home 147-97 after knocking down 22 three-pointers. Utah allows the most threes per game, and the Mavericks are making the third-most. I’m expecting Dallas to shoot lights out and roll the Jazz here.



3. NBA Parlay Pick: Milwaukee Bucks -9½ vs Brooklyn Nets

The Milwaukee Bucksare another team playing on the second night of a back-to-back, but luckily, they return home to face a pathetic Brooklyn Nets team. Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as questionable after he didn’t travel with the team to Boston last night, but I expect him to play. The Bucks rallied in the second half against the Celtics, and they should bring that momentum into tonight’s game.

The Bucks are 6-5 ATS with no rest, but the Nets are the worst team in the NBA ATS on the road at 11-22. The Bucks are 16-8 straight up after a loss. I expect the Bucks to rest Khris Middleton, but the rest of the starters should be active. We will likely need Giannis to play, but the Bucks could win this one by double-digits even if he sits again.



4. NBA Parlay Pick: Phoenix Suns Moneyline (-430) vs Atlanta Hawks

The Suns host the Atlanta Hawks on the second night of a back-to-back. Phoenix is 8-4 straight up on the second night of a back-to-back. Atlanta has won four consecutive games against the Suns, including earlier this season in Atlanta. NBA betting fans saw the Hawks upset the Suns as 3-point underdogs 129-120. Atlanta is a different team coming into this matchup without Trae Young and Jalen Johnson tonight.

The Hawks are just 13-21 on the road this season, and this is their ninth road game in their last 11 games. Atlanta could mail this game in and be ready to return home. The Suns are in the thick of the battle to climb out of the Western Conference Play-In Tournament, so I expect them to come out motivated to get the win and some revenge on Atlanta.
