Chicago Bulls @ Atlanta Hawks – 7pm ET

Some of the brightest young stars will face off in this Eastern Conference matchup. Both teams are full of great options you can pick for your daily NBA parlays. My two choices are perhaps the most obvious but most likely ones. As I’m going with Zach LaVine and Trae Young for my props for this one. 

Zach LaVine: LaVine is putting up Most Valuable Player worthy numbers this season. As he has the Chicago Bulls positioned towards the top of the Eastern Conference. If LaVine can stay healthy along with the other pieces in the Bulls roster, Chicago has a real shot to make a run to the NBA Finals in a couple of months. For this one I am going with LaVine to go over his total points prop against the Atlanta Hawks on the road as I look for him and Trae Young to go back and forth in a shootout of a game. He has gone for over 20 in his last three games and is heating up which makes him a hot prop at the moment. 

Trae Young: Despite the poor performance of the Atlanta Hawks this season, Trae Young as always has been an absolute human highlight reel. He is one of the brightest young stars in the game today and one day will grow into the best player in the league in my opinion. I look for Young to try and carry the Atlanta Hawks in this one against the star studded Chicago Bulls. Which is why I am taking the over on Trae Young’s combined points, rebounds, and assists, as he will likely have to shoulder the load. Young has put up fantastic numbers as of late, in his last game he scored 31 points and pulled down two rebounds to go along with six assists against the Boston Celtics. Expect more of the same from Young against Miami on Thursday. 

NBA Parlay Pick: Zach LaVine over points & Trae Young over points, rebounds & assists

Memphis Grizzlies @ Boston Celtics – 7:30pm ET

This game is yet another case of two of the brightest young stars in the National Basketball Association facing off. As Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies travel to Boston to play Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics. Both Morant and Tatum can fill up the score sheet every single night which is why they are my picks in this one.

Ja Morant: It’s clear to anyone who watches the NBA that Ja Morant is a future Most Valuable Player award winner. He is one of the brightest young stars in the league and night after night he is always providing us with another performance for the highlight reels. Morant is carrying his Memphis Grizzlies team at such a young age and with minimal help and he has them towards the top of the Western Conference. He may have had the dunk of the year in his last game to go along with 52 points, seven rebounds, and two assists. I am going with Morant getting the over on points again in this one as I look for another dominant performance. 

Jayson Tatum: Tatum shined in the Boston Celtics last game after Jaylen Brown went down with an injury. Brown sprained his ankle and likely will not be on the court for this matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies. Which means Tatum will have to carry the load again, which he is very capable of. I’m taking the over for Tatum on points, as he can really light up the scoreboard in a hurry when he gets into a rhythm. He put up impressive numbers last time out as he shot 12-25 from the field and put up 33 points in a Celtics victory. 

NBA Parlay Pick: Ja Morant over points & Jayson Tatum over & Points

Miami Heat @ Brooklyn Nets – 7:30pm ET

The Miami Heat have been red hot this year when Jimmy Butler and Bam Adeybao have been able to stay on the court. They will take on a Brooklyn Nets team that has struggled this year and will be without Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons, so expect Patty Mills to step up in the Point Guard role. 

Jimmy Butler: Butler has grown into a scorer during his time in the league. He has transformed into perhaps the best two way player in the league as well. While it would be easy to go with points or assists for Butler’s prop, I’m going to go the defensive route. I’m taking the over on steals for Butler on Thursday night as he is one of best thief’s in the game today. He is averaging nearly two steals a game this season and I expect him to get two or more in this contest against the short handed Brooklyn Nets. 

Patty Mills: The Australian born Patty Mills has thrived in the prolonged absences of Ben Simmons, James Harden, and Kyrie Irving. Mills is a volume shooting and can light it up every night when he chooses to. However, Mills has been in a bit of a slump as of late, and I feel like he is not going to break out of it in this prime time match up. I could easily see Mills putting up minimal points and assists numbers against a hot team like the Miami Heat which is why I’m going with the under for his combined total of points and assists for my pick in this one.

NBA Parlay Pick: Jimmy Butler over steals & Patty Mills under points & assists

Golden State Warriors @ Dallas Mavericks – 8:30pm ET

This one is going to be the Luka Doncic and Steph Curry show, so fasten your seatbelts and get ready to watch. This may end up being one of the most exciting basketball games of the regular season. Naturally I am going with Steph and Luka for my props in this one as well. 

Steph Curry: Stephen Curry is the greatest shooter of all time, there is no doubt about it. The man can put on a show with his ridiculous shots night in and night out. While he has struggled a bit from behind the arc since coming out of the All-Star break, don’t expect it to last much longer. In his last game he nailed five threes in a loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. In this one I expect an even better performance from Chef Curry as I have him going over his made three pointers prop. 

Luka Doncic: Luka is the best young star in the NBA, and he proves it every time he steps onto the basketball court. Doncic went off the other night and took control down the stretch to give the Dallas Mavericks a huge win over Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday evening. He is absolutely a future Most Valuable Player award winner and NBA champion. I expect him to put up another star studded performance in this one and that’s why I’m taking the over on his combined points, rebounds, and assists. 

NBA Parlay Pick: Steph Curry over three pointers & Luka Doncic over points, rebounds & assists

Los Angeles Lakers @ Los Angeles Clippers – 10pm ET

The battle of Los Angeles is set to commence on Thursday evening. Neither of these Los Angeles based teams are playing the way people expected them to this season. As they are both in danger of missing the playoffs this year instead of competing for the NBA title. 

Ivica Zubac: Zubac is a rebounding machine and he puts up nearly double digit rebound numbers on a nightly basis. Which is why I’m going with him to grab another ten plus rebounds in this one as he will likely not be guarded by Anthony Davis and should be the key factor in controlling the boards in this matchup. Zubac is on a stretch of four of his last five games where he has grabbed double digit rebounds and I expect that to continue in this one against the Lakers without Anthony Davis in the lineup. 

Russell Westbrook: There have been a ton of questions about Russell Westbrook’s future in Los Angeles. He has played poorly at times this season but in fairness so has the entire Los Angeles Lakers team. His shooting has been miserable as well, but he is still capable of lighting it up when he’s in a groove. For this one I’m going with the over for his combined points, rebounds, and assists as I feel like he will put together a great game for the Lakers on Thursday evening. 

NBA Parlay Pick: Zubac over rebounds & Westbrook over points, rebounds, & assists
