Thursday’s six-game NBA schedule features matchups between motivated playoff contenders, including Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder visiting the Indiana Pacers (-1), and Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics (-7) hosting De’Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings. The night is highlighted by a superstar showdown in Canada as Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors (-10) host LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. Fans across the nation will be placing wagers on these NBA odds, but before making your own NBA picks, you’ll want to see what SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh is saying.
The renowned co-founder of Accuscore, Oh uses a data-driven approach to crush sportsbooks. SportsLine’s top-ranked NBA handicapper is on a sizzling 74-51 run on NBA picks, returning more than $1,800 to $100 players in a short period of time. Oh has found three lines worth backing on Thursday after crunching the numbers. If you parlay them, you could be looking at a strong 6-1 payout.
We can tell you Oh is backing the Nuggets (-11) to cover at home against the Mavericks in a clash of teams heading in opposite directions. Oh has nailed eight of his last nine picks involving Denver, including 3-0 in the last two weeks alone. He faded the Nuggets in games against the Warriors, Spurs and Pelicans, and won them all.
Oh knows the Mavericks (27-40) have lost 11 of 12 and are well out of the NBA playoff bracket. The Nuggets (44-22) have rebounded from a short slump to win two of three and are back home where they’re 28-6, the best in the West. Denver has covered in both games against Dallas this season, winning by 10 and 8. With their recent trajectories, Oh sees a much-bigger margin of victory.
“My numbers indicate a get-right game looming for the Nuggets against the depleted Mavericks,” Oh told SportsLine. “I’m seeing the Nuggets winning by at least 15 points, which covers the double-digit spread with room to spare.” Confidently lock in the Mavericks to cover and you could be well on your way to a colossal parlay payoff.
Oh is also eyeing another favorite to cover with plenty of room to spare. Find out everything else you need to know to complete your NBA parlays only over at SportsLine.
