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.

I am officially on a roll! In the past 3 days I’ve landed a +817 same-game parlay on the Bucks vs Hornets, a +900 winner on the Warriors vs Grizzlies and last night a +743 winner on the Nets vs Bulls game! Let’s go for another one tonight!

I’ve prepared a bet for the Oklahoma City Thunder vs Brooklyn Nets clash at Barclays Center, which starts at 8:30pm ET. Continue reading to see it, but also don’t forget to check our predictions on the side and total for the rest of Thursday’s 5-game slate and my Warriors vs Bucks same game parlay.

Let’s dive in!

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to score 30+ points (+400)

Josh Giddey over 6.5 rebounds (-134)

Parlay odds: +723

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to score 30+ points (+400)

I really liking the odds of this bet, especially since Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 32 points in his last game against the Washington Wizards just 2 days ago. It was a big improvement compared to the first 3 games in January, when he shot the ball 13-for-22 and had 8 assists. He is OKC’s best player on offense and the ball spends a lot of the time in his hands as basically everything goes through him. He has had decent success against the Nets in his career — in his last 4 games against them he has scored at least 22 or more points and in one of those he had 31 on the road. Tonight he will go up against James Harden, which should be a favorable match-up for him on offense as the Beard doesn’t really do much on the defensive side of the ball. Brooklyn’s defense has been leaky over the past 3 games. They’ve allowed 115 points per game during that stretch, so if we see another high scoring game tonight I think SGA will fill up the stat sheet.

Josh Giddey over 6.5 rebounds (-134)

Josh Giddey has been a solid rebounding option for the Thunder lately. In January he has averaged 9.2 boards per game in 5 games played. That’s an increase of 1.8 boards per game compared to his season average and 2.1 boards more than he had in December. He recently had a streak of 10, 13 and 15 boards, and in his last 7 games he’s averaging 8.9 per game. Against a Nets team that ranks in the bottom 10 when it comes to opponent total rebounds per game, he can have another productive night. Brooklyn doesn’t really have an inside presence and is allowing opponents 53.9 boards against them this season. At home that number increases to 55.3 per game. At 6’8’’ Giddey has the height advantage over basically every potential matchup in the Nets backcourt.
