The 2022-23 NBA season continues on Thursday, March 16, with ten teams in action. Here’s a look at a strong parlay for tonight’s action featuring Nikola Jokic, Paolo Banchero and Sacramento Kings.
NBA Parlay Leg #1: Nikola Jokic Over 45.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-111)
Despite being a two-time MVP, Nikola Jokic is having the best season of his career, as he is 18th in scoring, third in rebounding and fourth in assists. The Denver Nuggets star is averaging 24.7 points, 11.9 rebounds and 10.0 assists per game while shooting 63.0% from the field, 40.5% from three-point range and 81.7% from the free-throw line. Jokic has finished with a combined 46 points, rebounds and assists in 31 of his 61 games this season, including his only matchup with the Detroit Pistons. Look for the five-time All-Star to take advantage of Detroit’s depleted roster as he once again combines for 46 points, rebounds and assists.
NBA Parlay Leg #2: Paolo Banchero Over 19.5 Points (-111)
Paolo Banchero is the favorite to win the Rookie of the Year award. The first overall pick of the 2022 NBA Draft is averaging 20.1 points per game while shooting 42.5% from the field. Banchero has scored at least 20 points in 35 of his 62 games this season, including five of his past six. While the Phoenix Suns are strong defensively, look for Banchero to continue his strong rookie year as he finishes with at least 20 points again.
NBA Parlay Leg #3: Sacramento Kings ML (+118)
The 41-27 Sacramento Kings have exceeded preseason expectations as they are in second place in the Western Conference. Meanwhile, the 39-30 Brooklyn Nets have struggled since moving Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, as they are just 7-10 since making the trades. Look for Sacramento to continue to inch closer to snapping their 16-year postseason drought as they win this contest outright.
