NBA Parlay Bets Today
The following two NBA parlay picks offer a low, medium, or high payout. Our low payout parlays try to minimize risk and odds start near +200 or higher in an effort to double our stake. In addition, the other parlay offers higher payouts with higher odds, but higher odds mean a smaller chance of winning.
In other words, are you after the big payout or more consistent wins?

8:00 p.m. EST – New York Knicks at Milwaukee Bucks (-16.5)
The Bucks have faced the Knicks twice this season and won the games by 44 and 21 points. Quite simply, there’s no way New York can match up with Milwaukee. Giannis Antetokounmpo presents a tough matchup for most teams, but there’s nothing that the Knicks can do to stop him. In fact, Giannis only needed 26 minutes to post a triple-double in the last meeting, and he has 10 straight double-doubles against them. After a string of four straight non-covers, the Bucks have won each of their last two games by 21 points.
10:30 p.m. EST – Dallas Mavericks (-8.5) at Golden State Warriors
In each of the first two meetings this season, the Mavericks have scored 141 and 142 points against the Warriors. We could basically end the discussion there, but we know the readers want a little more to be convinced. Golden State is allowing the third-most 3-pointers per game (13.2) and eighth-highest field goal percentage (46.9) this season. Luka Doncic has triple-doubles in each of his last three meetings against the Warriors with a ton of steals to go along with it. Look for him to be his usually-dominant self and roll Golden State up in convincing fashion. Damion Lee is expected to sit out once again as he and the Warriors try and negotiate a new contact.
10:30 p.m. EST – Cleveland Cavaliers at Los Angeles Clippers ML (-1200)
The Cavs are 3-3 SU/ATS playing on the back-end of back-to-back sets. Those three wins came by an average of 6.7 points while the losses were by an average of 26.7 points – a huge 141-94 loss at Philadelphia elevated that average. Last night, the Cavs were throttled by a superior Lakers team 128-99, with most of that coming in the second half. Cleveland is without Larry Nance Jr. and Kevin Porter, and that won’t help matters with a short bench.
The Clippers have failed to cover four straight games, with three of those coming at home. Not to mention, two of those came against the Knicks and Warriors. LA will be without Paul George again but we’re just looking for these guys to win outright in this situation.
Big-Payout NBA Parlay Bet
Parlay Odds: +849
$20 risk: $189.88
This NBA parlay bet focuses on maximizing your winnings. This NBA parlay bet is for the bettor who is looking for the big payout from the NJ sportsbooks. The higher odds mean beats but we’re shooting for the stars here! No one ever bragged they won $10 and as such, so this is for the bettor looking for the big parlay win.
7:30 p.m. EST – Utah Jazz at Brooklyn Nets (+1.5)
As a home underdog this season, the Nets are a perfect 6-0 ATS/5-1 SU. They just won as outright dogs on Friday night against the Heat, in addition to beating the Rockets, Celtics, Nuggets and 76ers throughout the season. This won’t be an easy game, as the Jazz come in as winners of nine straight and 14 of the last 15. Rudy Gobert will likely get a healthy dose of DeAndre Jordan and Donovan Mitchell is dealing with an upper respiratory infection but is still expected to play. Brooklyn nearly defeated them back in Utah earlier this season, and it certainly helps to get Kyrie Irving back in the lineup. The Nets are a very streaky team, so when things are going well, they continue to roll – things are good now. In addition, Brooklyn is 8-2 ATS when underdogs of +1 to +4.5 this season.
7:30 p.m. EST – Phoenix Suns (-3) at Atlanta Hawks
These two teams (ATL: 3rd, PHX: 10th) run two of the fastest paces in the NBA, so it’s interesting to see a total this low. However, there’s a pretty good reason for it. There will be a ton of players missing in this game, most notably Trae Young of the Hawks and Ricky Rubio – both starting point guards. In addition, Alex Len and De’Andre Hunter are either questionable or doubtful while Jabari Parker has already been ruled out. This is just a bad situation for Atlanta, one that Phoenix should absolutely clobber in. While the under is appealing, it’s probably smarter to go with the Suns in winning fashion.
8:00 p.m. EST – Houston Rockets at Memphis Grizzlies ML (+163)
This should be a fun track meet between two of the top-4 paced teams in the NBA. However, we think the Grizzlies can pull the outright upset in this game. Ja Morant and Jonas Valanciunas have been absolutely fantastic for a Grizzlies team that has won five straight games. As for the Rockets, this is one of their lower spreads of the season – about 1.5 points under average. What’s interesting about the Rockets is that these closely-lined games go under the total a lot. We believe that doesn’t bode well for James Harden & Co. It might not be a popular play, but we’re trying to make a big splash in this parlay.
