Best NBA Same Game Parlay Picks & Bets To Make Today
After yet another wacky NBA offseason, the regular season is finally upon us. We can put away the Trade Machine and stop worrying about the rumor mill (for now) and trade it in for time spent on NBA betting sites and earning cash on our favorite bets.
NBA betting action is truly as good as it gets at a time when the athleticism and talent pool in the league is at an all-time high. Whether you’re a fan of the old veterans and think the Nets, Lakers, and Warriors still have what it takes to play deep into the postseason or if you think the young guns like Luka, Zion, Ja, and Tatum finally take over, there’s something for everyone at the online sportsbooks around the country.
And what better way to kick off the NBA season and the spreads, moneylines, and totals that come with it, than a One Game Parlay? Rather than looking for player and team props across multiple games, markets, and leagues, we’re predicting how one game featuring two teams battling one another will fair. Let’s kick off the NBA season with some big wins:

Isaiah Stewart, 2+ 3-Pointers
Let’s get to the big one right away. Isaiah Stewart averaged 1.4 3-pointers over the final eight games of last year, making multiple triples in four of those contests. He then proceeded to light it up in the preseason, connecting on 7 of 18 triples (39%) including multiple makes in two of four games (he also made multiple 3-pointers in two Las Vegas Summer League games in July).
What we’re saying here is that Stewart has a legitimate 3-point stroke and has made multiple triples in eight of the last 14 games he’s played in. The value on these NBA odds here are incredible and books are behind this trend.
Cade Cunningham, 15+ Points
Let’s go with some low-hanging fruit on betting apps, but also save ourselves in what could be a blowout win for the Pistons. Cunningham averaged 17.4 points last season, including 21.1 points after the All-Star break; in that stretch, he tallied 15+ points in all but one game in which he played his normal minutes.
Against a Magic defense that could be the worst in the league, we feel comfortable in this one hitting.
Pistons Moneyline over Magic
The Orlando Magic get to unveil top pick Paolo Banchero, but the Pistons have already unveiled last year’s prize possession in Cade Cunningham. Both teams are rebuilding, but Detroit has the leg up with core pieces in Cunningham, Saddiq Bey, Isaiah Stewart, and Jaden Ivey.
Orlando is solid, but they’re also without Jonathan Isaac, Moe Wagner, Markelle Fultz, and Gary Harris. The Pistons roll in this one at home.
