Long time NBA fan, have been following the game closely for 21 years now. Joining the Pickswise writing staff for the 2020-21 season. Hopefully we can make some money together! Oh, and I firmly believe Lebron James is not one of the two best basketball players of all time. Yeah, I said it.

Plenty of excitement coming our way on a Thursday as 6 teams take the NBA hardwood.

The Utah Jazz and Philadelphia 76ers start us off at 7:00 pm ET live on NBA TV! Our same game parlay for this one is available below, but also don’t forget our predictions on the side and total for Lakers vs Grizzlies and Nuggets vs Spurs.

Let’s get into it!

Philadelphia 76ers ML (+126)

Bojan Bogdanovic Over 2.5 Made Threes (+122)

Joel Embiid Over 25.5 Points (-112)

Parlay odds: +706

Philadelphia 76ers ML (+126)

Philly is on a 3-game winning streak with their star player Embiid averaging 34.3 points and 15 rebounds per game. He and Harris are both healthy and available for tonight’s game, so even if they are without Ben Simmons this season they are still among the elite when healthy. They have the home court advantage here and this is their first home game in the month of December. Utah is currently in midst of a 4-game road trip, fatigue will kick in at some point and it’s never easy winning in Philly. The Sixers have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 at home vs Utah.

Check out our full game preview for Utah Jazz vs Philadelphia 76ers

Bojan Bogdanovic Over 2.5 Made Threes (+122)

Philadelphia’s game plan in this one will be to stop the hot hand of Donovan Mitchell who has been on a tear recently scoring 30+ points in 4 games in a row. That’s a chance for Bogdanovic to shine, he already had a massive game against the 76ers once this season scoring 27 in the win a couple of weeks ago. In that game he made 75% of his shots from the field and 71.4% from three. His three-point shot has been falling down consistently lately, he has drained 4 threes in 3 games in a row, coming off a 21-point effort against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Philadelphia isn’t exactly elite when it comes to defending the 3-point line, they rank only 20th in the NBA allowing teams to shoot 35.5% from distance this season.

Joel Embiid Over 25.5 Points (-112)

If the Sixers want to get a win here they’ll need Embiid to step up. He has had a couple of inconsistent performance ever since returning from a long layoff because of Covid, but thankfully he has stabilized now and is producing at a high level. In his last 6 games he is averaging 29 points per game on 44% shooting from the field and an impressive (especially for a big man) 43% from downtown. He has gone Over 25.5 points in 3 straight and has already produced 2 big performance of 42 and 43 points since returning to action. Against the Jazz last time he played he had 40 points and 19 rebounds and in 2 of his last 3 against them he went Over 25.5 points. Going up against an elite center like Rudy Gobert will be a challenge, but rest assured Embiid thrives in these situations.
