Boardroom Brand Builders Parlay: Curry, Klay Headline 4-Leg Play from FanDuel

Breaking down Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson’s business & endorsement portfolios as part of FanDuel’s Boardroom Brand Builders Parlay.

Madison Square Garden has always been a special place to play for Stephen Curry.

Curry’s 54-point performance on Feb. 27, 2013, at MSG proved to the world he was a force to be reckoned with as a superstar, and on Dec. 14, 2021, Curry broke Ray Allen’s all-time 3-point record at The Garden in a nationally televised game on TNT. Just over 11 years to the day of his king-making performance at the Mecca, which remained his career high until 2021, Steph and the Golden State Warriors visit the ascendant New York Knicks in prime time on TNT.

In collaboration with our friends at FanDuel Sportsbook, we put together a four-leg parlay fans can wager on Thursday on the FanDuel Sportsbook App and retail locations across the country. The Boardroom Brand Builders Parlay celebrates Curry and his legendary Warriors running mate Klay Thompson — NBA champions who are successful entrepreneurs off the court who can help you win big Thursday thanks to their amazing contributions on the hardwood.

All betting odds are current as of 2 p.m. EST on Feb. 29

Stephen Curry, PG, Golden State Warriors

Widely regarded as the greatest shooter of all time, the four-time NBA champion, two-time MVP, nine-time All-NBA, and 10-time All-Star has also developed quite the investment portfolio. Curry’s SC30 Inc. combines his endorsement, investment, and philanthropic endeavors into one company.

His Curry Brand sneakers and apparel imprint with Under Armour signed Sacramento Kings star guard De’Aaron Fox in October as the first signature athlete besides Curry himself. You may have seen Steph recently in commercials for CarMax, Subway, and Chase, and his investment portfolio includes TMRW Sports, Tonal, Squire, and Super.com.

Curry’s Unanimous Media, per its website, aims to “develop, create, and distribute compelling family, faith, and sports based content for all” in film and TV, podcasting, publishing, and gaming. Projects have included ABC‘s mini golf show Holey Moley, HBO Max‘s celebrity couple game show About Last Night, and the 2022 Audible podcast series The Greatest Sports Stories Never Told.

In 2021, the 35-year-old signed a four-year, $215 million contract extension that expires in 2026. While he won’t be giving you any of his contract money, you can make some cash off Steph’s strong performance on Thursday.

Boardroom Bet: 25+ points (-200 via FanDuel Sportsbook), 6+ assists (+135 via FanDuel Sportsbook)

Klay Thompson, SG, Golden State Warriors

While Curry is widely regarded as the best basketball shooter who ever lived, Thompson is among the all-time greats in this regard as well. The final year of Klay’s five-year, $189 million has been a turbulent one, transitioning nicely to a bench role while his 3-point shooting percentage dips to a career-low 37.2%.

The 34-year-old remains as popular as ever inside and outside the Bay Area, with a strong group of investments and endorsements to match. Thompson has a signature shoe deal with Anta, hawks sandwiches for Subway, promotes health and wellness for Kaiser Permanente, and has promoted movies on social media like Bob Marley: One Love and The Super Mario Bros. Movie. In the past few years, Klay has put money into Sleeper, Overtime, Dapper Labs, and funding rounds for at least a few healthcare companies.

In four games since he was moved to a reserve role, Thompson is shooting 41.2% from 3-point range and knocking down four triples per contest. Play it right, and he may make it rain for you against the Knicks on Thursday.

Boardroom Bet: 15+ points (-140 via FanDuel Sportsbook), 3+ made threes (-195 via FanDuel Sportsbook)

All told — solid scoring performances from both Steph and Play, the tried and trusted dynamic duo, could mean a major payout just in time for the weekend slate. Here’s your 4-leg parlay odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook:
