If you think you know the answer, you’ll be interested in the betting line and the hundreds of prop bets sportsbook carry, giving bettors plenty of options for building NBA Finals same-game parlays.
Here are a few of our favorite NBA Finals same-game parlay picks for Friday’s contest.
DraftKings SGP for NBA Finals Game 4: Nuggets vs. Heat
Same-Game Parlays have become popular for obvious reasons. You have a chance to win more money while risking less. Who doesn’t want to do that?
But, if you are not careful, it is easy to fall into a trap with parlays and same-game parlays. As tempting as adding one more leg and watching your potential payout grow can be, taking a cautious approach (fewer legs) is advisable. Yes, you can win more money with additional legs, but the house has the advantage, which you can minimize by going with fewer legs.
NBA Finals: Nuggets vs. Heat Same Game Parlay No. 1
- Bam Adebayo Over 20.5 points (+100)
- Nikola Jokic Over 31.5 points (+100)
- Same Game Parlay Odds: +295
Bam Adebayo is not the primary scoring threat for the Heat, but he has been arguably the most consistent, with 21+ in all three NBA Finals games. With the Heat in dire need of a win in Game 4, we think he’ll have another strong game tonight. He’ll go for 21+ points once again.
As important as Adebayo has been for the Heat, the Nuggets would not be ahead 2-1 in the series if not for Nikola Jokic. Miami can’t defend him. He’s averaged 33.3 PPG and is 0.7 assists away from averaging a triple-double in the Finals. Don’t count on the Heat figuring out how to stop him in Game 4. Jokic will be good for at least 32.

NBA Finals: Nuggets vs. Heat Same Game Parlay No. 2
- Bam Adebayo Over 11.5 rebounds (+130)
- Denver -3.5 (-105)
- Same Game Parlay Odds: +380
Adebayo has been a beast on the boards throughout the playoffs. He’s had 10+ in seven of 21 playoff games and 12+ in six, including three of his last five. With the team desperate for a win before the series returns to Denver, we expect a big game from Adebayo. Asking for 11.5+ is an aggressive play, but we like the plus money odds (+130) over the minus odds with the over 10.5 market (-120).
Miami will make this a challenging, hard-fought game. But the Nuggets are the better team by far. The first half will be close, just like it was in Game 3, but Denver will pull away in the second half and win by a comfortable margin.

NBA Finals: Nuggets vs. Heat Same Game Parlay No. 3
- Gabe Vincent 3+ three-pointers (+120)
- Nikola Jokic Over 10.5 assists (+105)
- Under 210.5 points (-110)
- Same Game Parlay Odds: +900
Vincent has been a solid threat from behind the arc throughout the postseason, just not in Game 3 (1-6). If Miami is going to avoid the dreaded 3-1 deficit, the Heat will need a solid game from him. He’ll get his shots, but unlike Game 3, Vincent be good for at least three.
Jokic has been incredibly productive in just about every facet of the game. But since he recorded just four assists in Game 2, his average sits at 9.3 APG. He rebounded from that game with ten in Game 3. He’ll play even better Friday night to get the Nuggets within a game of an NBA title.
If you think the Heat will win this game, go with the Over. Miami will need to have a strong offensive performance to get the win. But if Denver is going to win, it will be a low-scoring game. They’ll limit the Heat to 100 points or less while scoring enough to win (without the game turning into a blowout). We feel confident the Nuggets will win.
