NBA Thursday same game parlay (+874 odds): Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers
It’s a barren night in the NBA with only 3 games on the slate but I don’t care. This is the kind of night that separates the strong from the weak. We could just watch the NFL game and move on with our lives but I don’t recommend it. This is the time of the year where we need action for the 7pm ET hour until the well past midnight on the east coast. It’s how being a gambler works. We have to be able to find something in the Raptors/76ers game on NBA TV tonight and that’s just what I did.
Let’s take a look at the best options for this showdown and don’t forget to check out our full game previews for picks on the sides and totals of all the NBA games tonight. As always, follow me on Twitter just in case there are more NBA player props to bet.
Fred VanVleet to record 4+ threes (+230)
Scottie Barnes to record 4+ assists (+230)
Parlay odds: +874
Fred VanVleet (Raptors) to record 4+ threes (+230)
We really don’t know who is available for the Philadelphia 76ers tonight since the whole team seems to have Covid. Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle all have missed games recently but Harris and Thybulle will be back soon. It’s just a waiting game at this point but at any time they could be activated. Even if 1 or 2 of them are active tonight, I still think the Raptors’ Fred VanVleet cans a few treys. First off, in his last 8 games VanVleet has taken at least 7 3-pointers. He’s taken 10 and 9 a few times too. He’s hit at least 4 in only 3 of those games but he’s made fewer than 3 only once. VanVleet is right there, people. This play should not be +230.

Scottie Barnes (Raptors) to record 4+ assists (+230)
This is another bet that shouldn’t be +230. That’s crazy to me. First off, Barnes has hit this number in each of his last 3 games. That’s 3 for 3 on the streets. 100% type stuff. Plus it borderline correlates with the other play. Imagine how good you’re going to feel when Barnes passes to VanVleet and he drains a 3. It’s going to be magic and it could easily happen multiple times. Barnes is getting plenty of potential assists and it’s likely the Raptors will come out strong tonight after getting embarrassed by the Celtics last night. This isn’t crazy.
