Big Investment, Bigger $18K Payout for Tipico Bettor on NBA Parlay

Six NBA teams came through with high totals to help this Tipico bettor score big on their three-game over/under parlay.

April 1, 2024

In our ‘Big Win’ series, we highlight one of the most notable recent wins on Tipico Sportsbook.

One Tipico bettor from New Jersey kept it simple on Sunday, but that uncomplicated bet wound up with a payout of more than $18,000 in our weekly Big Win.

There wasn’t much to it — three bets on the over for three NBA games on Sunday in one parlay. The layout? $2500. The payout? A cool $18,037.95.

These were the Over/Under bets:

Washington Wizards vs Miami Heat, over 214.5 points at -105. This wager looked great by halftime, with Miami scoring 66 points to take a 66-59 lead at the break. Terry Rozier and Bam Adebayao combined for 49 points to lead the Heat, and the Wizards did their part with six players in double figures.

San Antonio Spurs vs Golden State Warriors, over 226.5 points at -112. This bet didn’t look so great at halftime, with the teams combining for 112 points, less than half the total. But the Dubs exploded for 37 points in the third quarter to spark a 117-113 win for Golden State — the total was only 3.5 points more than the over.

But this bet made sense. The Spurs have allowed 119 points per game — sixth worst in the league — and the Warriors have given up nearly 116 ppg — 14th worst in the league. That’s a combined 235 points, which is pretty close to the 230 that they scored Sunday.

Sacramento Kings vs Utah Jazz, over 221.5 points at -105. These teams give up a combined 236 ppg, so this bet also was a solid one. This wager also didn’t look promising at halftime, but the teams scored 125 points in the second half. The Kings scored 71 after the break in a 127-106 victory. Keegan Murray, Harrison Barnes and De’Aaron Fox combined for 73 points in an important game for Sacramento in the playoff seedings race.

“This was an interesting bet, as it’s all overs,” said Tipico Sportsbook Analyst Daniel Orencole. “In recent seasons, the NBA totals market has evolved as the game tempo has picked up and more points are being scored. But while that’s true, plenty of sharp action is still seen on unders.”
