Thursday NBA Parlay: Include Clippers, Warriors in Top Picks

The NBA season is two-thirds of the way through! Nearly every team returns to the hardwood on Thursday following the week-long All-Star break.

Every night, the NBA allows us to string together multiple bets for a big win. Thursday is ideal because of the 12 games scheduled to tip off. I’m going to use a combination of NBA ATS picks and NBA player props to build our parlay bet.

With so many games to break down and select our picks from, I’m loading up a 4-leg parlay. You can always do a ton of your own research, but the trick is I’ve already done that work for you. Let’s get into the best NBA expert picks for Thursday!

Thursday NBA Parlay Picks

1. Los Angeles Clippers +2½ at Oklahoma City Thunder

My favorite NBA spread today is the Clippers on the road against the Thunder. You never know how prepared a team will be coming out of the All-Star break, but the Clippers are a veteran squad that has been in this situation. The Clippers arrived in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, so there should be no funny business from their squad of vets.

Paul George and Kawhi Leonard played in the All-Star Game but have had plenty of time to rest. The home team has won the first two matchups between these teams. The Clippers, however, sit one game behind the Thunder in the standings, and they will want to win this game if they want the head-to-head tiebreaker for the top two spots in the West. The Clippers can win this game outright.

2. Los Angeles Lakers vs Golden State Warriors Moneyline

If the Warriors want to make a push, it starts on when they play host to the Los Angeles Lakers. Golden State to make the playoffs is one of my favorite NBA futures bets, and if they can round into form, they will be dangerous when NBA playoff betting rolls around.

The Warriors opened up as 3-point favorites, but this line has shot up to 6 points over the last 24 hours. LeBron James has been ruled out for the Lakers, making this a clearer spot for Golden State.

It’s the worst end of the spread, so I’m opting for the moneyline. This is a massive game with playoff implications. Golden State was starting to get hot before the break, and they are currently 2½ games back from the Lakers in the standings. The last meeting saw the Warriors lose in double overtime, so this is a revenge spot for Golden State.

3. Nikola Jokic Triple Double – Yes

I was searching for a way to get these NBA parlay odds to rocket up for us to cash a massive win coming out of the break. The Nuggets come out of the break at home against the Washington Wizards. According to the latest NBA betting lines, Denver is a 15-point favorite, so there’s potential for a blowout.

In the first meeting between these sides, Jokic finished 2 assists shy of a triple-double, racking up 42 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists. Washington has the fourth-worst defensive rating. The Wizards have allowed the most rebounds and assists per game. The Joker could easily waltz his way into a triple-double tonight.
