I'm an NFL handicapper here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up. For Andrew Ortenberg media enquiries, please email

We’ve got a great game to celebrate the nightcap of TNT’s Tuesday doubleheader here as the Golden State Warriors host the Boston Celtics. Stephen Curry vs. Jayson Tatum — there should be a lot of fireworks. These two iconic franchises don’t play all that often, so it’s always a treat.

What better way to make this nationally televised showdown even more entertaining than by betting a same game parlay? We’ve also got thoughts on the side and total, which you can find out in our full game preview. If you’re new to same game parlays and want to find out more, be sure to check out our handy guide, which details how they work and which sportsbooks currently offer them.

Golden State Warriors alternate spread -4.5 (+205)

Jayson Tatum over 25.5 points (-112)

Andrew Wiggins under 18.5 points (-108)

Parlay odds: +1419

We’ve got a three-leg one for you here, which pays out at over 14/1 with FanDuel Sportsbook. Here we’re taking the Warriors as an underdog, and we get a huge odds boost by throwing in an over on a Celtics player and an under on a Golden State player when I really don’t think they conflict all that much.

Golden State Warriors alternate spread -4.5 (+205)

I’m not so sure the Warriors should be an underdog here. Tatum is back from COVID-19 now, so Boston doesn’t really have much of an excuse for their continued poor play. They just lost to the Lakers while scoring only 95 points, right after losing to the Spurs while only scoring 106 in their previous game. Remember, this is a team that just recently lost to the Knicks by 30 points while only scoring 75, and with or without Tatum there’s no excuse for that.

The offense just isn’t in sync right now. The Warriors, on the other hand, have won three of four games, with each of the three wins coming by at least 12 points and the only loss coming on the road to the Suns. Golden State is only 3-5 on the road but 8-4 at home this year, so they’ve clearly still got a solid home court advantage even without fans.

Jayson Tatum over 25.5 points (-112)

We get a big odds boost from throwing in the Tatum over with the Warriors, when I don’t really think it conflicts given what we’ve seen since he came back from COVID. Boston’s offense has still looked terrible the past two games despite Tatum playing well in both of them, and he’s almost a one-man show right now. Tatum scored at least 25 points in those games, both losses. In the most recent loss he played in before going down with COVID he had 28 points, so the Celtics certainly don’t need to win this game for him to cash the over. The Warriors’ defense has been shaky, to put it kindly, so I think Tatum will have a big game here. He often saves his best for these nationally televised showdowns.

Andrew Wiggins under 18.5 points (-108)

We get another odds boost from throwing in this Warriors player under, when Wiggins definitely isn’t the key to Golden State winning this one. We need a big game from Curry, not Wiggins. Wiggins has only topped 18 points in four of his last 12 games, so I don’t see how anyone could go over here. He hasn’t been putting up huge scoring numbers even while his three-point percentage has been sky-high recently, so if he comes down to earth a little bit from beyond the arc he certainly won’t eclipse this number.
