The home of our NBA Parlay picks. Our expert handicappers analyze every game before carefully selecting our top NBA Picks to create our NBA Parlay today, with full reasoning and analysis for each selection. You can also use our Parlay Calculator to calculate your potential winnings and odds on any NBA parlay bet.
What Is An NBA Parlay Bet
An NBA parlay bet is a single NBA wager with multiple selections, each selection must-win for the bet to cash, but the odds of each selection are multiplied to offer much bigger odds.
You can combine a variety of NBA picks from different markets if you choose to form an NBA parlay, from Moneyline picks to spreads and totals.
Parlays are a great way to wager on big favorites with their odds likely small for straight wagers, you would have to stake a lot to win a little. By combining the selections into a parlay your stake rolls onto each selection, the only catch being they all must-win for the ticket to cash, one loser, the entire bet is lost.
On fixed odds markets such as spreads and totals where each selection will be priced around +/-110, a three-team parlay will pay around +600, so your $100 stake will see you profit $600 plus your $100 stake, $700 in total, with a four-team parlay paying around +1200, returning a total $1300 for your $100 stake.
How To Win An NBA Parlay Bet
NBA Parlay bets, despite their popularity, can be tricky to land with upsets commonplace in the NBA and just one losing selection needed for the parlay to lose.
With that in mind, you must be selective with your NBA picks and parlays, and here are a few tips to consider when trying to win an NBA parlay bet.
- Keep to 2,3 or 4 team parlays – The difficulty of winning parlay increases with each selection you add, and while the odds do too, sticking to 2,3 or 4 team parlays gives you the best chance to see profit over time.
- Use parlays to combine multiple strong favorites – If you like the Bucks to beat the Celtics but their Moneyline odds are -250, you may not want to risk $250 to win a profit of $100. Instead, you can add a couple of other strong favorites, say for example the Lakers and Clippers are also -250, a 3-team parlay on these would pay around +175 and $175 profit from a $100 wager.
- Shop around for odds – Not all online sportsbooks have the same odds, and while there is often only a marginal difference, if you can wager three picks at -200 each instead of -250, your payout would be $337.50 instead of $274.40 to a $100 stake.
- Manage your bankroll – Being disciplined with your bankroll is key to making a profit across an NBA season. If you keep your stake consistent on NBA parlay bets, with 3-team parlays at odds of around 6/1, you only need to win 1 in 7 parlays to break even, any better than that is profit.

Expert NBA Teaser Predictions
NBA teasers are one of the few sports where these types of bets are utilized besides pro and college football. The most common points available in NBA teasers are 4, 4.5, and 5 with some books offering 7 points. You can apply these points on anywhere from 2 to 14 games with each bet you add the payout odds increasing. Of course, for an NBA teaser to be graded a win, each team on the ticket must be graded a win.
What Is An NBA Same Game Parlay
An NBA Same Game Parlay is the same as a regular NBA parlay, a multi-selection single bet, the difference being, the NBA Same Game Parlay sees all of the selections come from one specific match rather than a selection from various different matches.
The obvious positive of an NBA Same Game Parlay is that by combining multiple picks you can shoot for a bigger win on the game you’re watching to the team you root for as the odds increase with each selection.
One of the most popular NBA Same Game Parlay strategies among NBA bettors is to add correlated props. Correlated prop bets are when the outcome of one prop will directly affect the outcome of another. For example, you may spot that over the last 10 games no team in the NBA has shot more three-pointers than the Celtics, who now face the Sacramento Kings who allow 40% of their opponent’s 3-pointers to drop. In this instance, you might look to parlay the Celtics to win, as well as Jason Taytum and Jaylen Brown to hit 3+ threes. By identifying a team you like to win and why you like them to win, you can correlate plays with that betting angle and get great NBA Same Game Parlay Odds.
You can also keep it even more simple and think, the Lakers will win because Lebron James has a great matchup and add Lakers-6, Lebron James Triple Double, and Total Points over 220 for example. Again, like in the example above if the Lakers win there is a good chance Lebron has had a great game, and if he does, the points will be racking up. With all of these picks linked to one another, you’re correlating your NBA parlay picks to better your chances of cashing your ticket.
As with any type of Parlay wager, the more selections you add to your NBA Same Game Parlay, the more difficult it is to win, but the more the odds will increase. It’s a fine line between shooting for the stars and trying to seek out value in an NBA Parlay so adding 3 or 4 picks is usually a better option than 7 or 8 picks in one parlay.
