NBA Parlay Picks For Tuesday: Riding Milwaukee and Portland

Multi-Team Parlay

  • Milwaukee Bucks -6
  • Portland Trail Blazers +9

Odds: +167 (Bet $100 to win $167)

Today's a quiet day in the NBA, so we're taking a two-team parlay and a single-team parlay. After falling at the final hurdle in yesterday's attempt, today we're taking a team I believe should be winning their contest but allowing them to fall slightly short in the process while also banking on a game that should be a sure thing. Let's dig in.

Milwaukee is still without Brook Lopez, Donte DiVincenzo, and Khris Middleton heading into tonight's game, yet Jrue Holiday and Giannis Antetokounmpo are a fearsome duo that command respect. Philadelphia is in the midst of their own injury crisis and enters tonight's game without the services of Joel Embiid, Matisse Thybulle, Tobias Harris, Ben Simmons, and Isaiah Joe. Milwaukee might be a little banged up, but the 76ers are missing all of their big hitters and will likely field a bench unit built around Seth Curry's floor spacing ability, which isn't likely when facing off against Jrue Holiday to end well. To make matters worse for Philadelphia, they're dealing with tired legs after a hard-fought loss against the New York Knicks last night while the Bucks are well-rested, having not played since Sunday night. Back-to-backs are grueling when you factor in the impact on a player's body, the travel, and then playing through soreness, and with Doc Rivers unable to go deep into his bench, the 76ers are clearly fighting off the back foot tonight. Expect the Bucks to win by seven or more points in a comfortable victory.

Kawhi Leonard, Marcus Morris Sr., and Jason Preston continue to miss time for the Los Angeles Clippers, while the Portland Trail Blazers come into this game with no health concerns. The Clippers won their last meeting with the Trail Blazers towards the end of October, winning by a 30-point margin in a statement win for their team. Both teams are hovering around .500 and have shown inconsistencies in their play, but both maintain a positive net rating that sees each team sit within the top-10 of the league. You may point to the Clippers' injuries as a reason they're not to be trusted in tonight's game, but those players have missed most, if not all, of the season, meaning you should take this Clippers team on their merit. Interestingly, the Clippers currently sit third for their defensive rating, ten places clear of the Trail Blazers, and will hope their defensive scheme continues to pay dividends against a ferocious back-court of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. At the same time, Serge Ibaka's return to the rotation will provide the Clippers with physicality. We're expecting the Trail Blazers to lose their second matchup against the Clippers, but not by such a wide margin, hence why we've given them a 9 point head start to cover the spread.

Single-game parlay: Atlanta Hawks vs. Utah Jazz

Hawks vs Jazz Odds

  • Atlanta Hawks +13
  • Under 222.5 points

Odds: +163 (Bet $100 to win $163)

In a repeat of last Thursday's matchup, the Utah Jazz face off against the Atlanta Hawks. The Jazz came out of that contest as clear winners with an 18-point margin but have lost their following two games, while the Hawks haven't won a game since their victory over the Washington Wizards on November 1st. In terms of injuries, the Hawks will be without Onyeka Okongwu, while the Jazz is missing Rudy Gay and Elijah Hughes – for reference, only Hughes participated in their last meeting. He only played for two minutes, so we're essentially seeing the same rosters go at it. Even with their previous two losses, the Jazz still ranks second in the NBA for net rating, posting a positive 9.3, while the Hawks languish in 23rd with a negative 3.6. Atlanta's slide looks set to continue as the Jazz work their way through a problematic East Coast trip. Still, with Utah's incredible defense and potent offense, the Hawks will struggle to keep ground as they try to outgun their Western Conference foes. We're expecting a relatively large victory from the Jazz, but not as big as last time, so we're taking the Hawks at +13 while hoping Utah's defense to ensure the scoring doesn't top 222 points.
