NBA Parlay Picks for Tuesday: Will Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz Dominate Depleted 76ers?

Tuesday's NBA Parlay

It's another quiet day in the NBA today, with only three games in total. We had mixed results in yesterday's foray into the parlay world, hitting both our single-team parlay's while falling short on the multi-team. Now, with fewer games on the docket, we can try to get back to acing our spread bets.

NBA Parlay Breakdown

There might only be three games on tonight, but the contest between the Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors is must-see TV, no question. Honestly, if I had the choice, I would have avoided this game like the plague. There's just too much talent to comfortably pick a winner, alas, the NBA knew what they were doing with the scheduling, so here we are. Golden State still commands the top spot in net rating across the NBA, posting a +12.7 over their first 13 games, while the Nets sit 9th with a +4.7 – big difference.

Despite their immense offensive talent, the Nets have relied on their defense to get it done, ranking 8th in the NBA instead of their 14th placed offense. However, against a Warriors team who sit first in defense and third in offense, Brooklyn will be relying on some magic moments from their star pairing of Kevin Durant and James Harden. Both teams enter tonight's contest with some injuries to work through; Gary Payton II joins Klay Thompson and James Wiseman on the Warriors injury list, while Nicolas Claxton, Joe Harris, Paul Millsap, and Kyrie Irving are all out for Brooklyn. When pressed for a winner in tonight's contest, I can't look further than Golden State. As such, we're taking the Nets to cover a +7-point spread or win outright.

Next up is the Los Angeles Clippers vs. the San Antonio Spurs, in a game that was far easier to pick a winner: the Clippers. No Greg Popovich-coached team will ever be a push-over, but the Clippers are riding the crest of a wave right now, having gone 7-1 since the turn of the month. Paul George has been fantastic in carrying the Clippers, who are missing Kawhi Leonard, and is averaging 26.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists, and 2.2 steals per game – did somebody say All-Star?

The Spurs, on the other hand, have lost 5-of-7 since the start of November, with their last defeat coming against the Lakers over the weekend. While the Clippers' offense hasn't been firing on all cylinders, their defense ranks second in the NBA, which will give Keldon Johnson and company nightmares when trying to find scoring opportunities. Neither team have any new additions to their injury report and will roll with similar rotations to what they have in previous games this month, making things far easier to predict. As such, we're anticipating a Clippers win but a close-fought battle, so a -4 spread should get us to completion on today's two-team parlay.

Utah Jazz vs. Philadelphia 76ers Same-Game Parlay

  • Philadelphia 76ers +11
  • Under 217.5 points
  • Odds: +225

Jazz vs. 76ers Odds

Third, in net rating, second in offensive rating, and 11th in defensive rating, that's the regular-season behemoth that is the Utah Jazz. Today, they face off against the Joel Embiid-less Philadelphia 76ers. Rudy Gobert must be licking his lips at that the prospect of an unimpeded lane to the rim tonight. Philadelphia isn't just missing their superstar big man either; their injury list is five deep and contains multiple high-impact players, three of whom are regular starters:

  • Joel Embiid – Out
  • Matisse Thybulle – Out
  • Danny Green – Out
  • Grant Riller – Out
  • Ben Simmons – Out

Luckily, the 76ers can rely on Tobias Harris to lead the line for them against Donovan Mitchell and co. However, it will likely not be enough when considering the lack of depth Philadelphia can lean on. For the Jazz, their only injury is Rudy Gay, who has yet to play this season, so it's not like his absence impacts the teams' chances of winning tonight.

Basically, the odds are firmly stacked against the 76ers, but they might find encouragement in the Jazz's recent inconsistencies, with them having lost 4 of their last six games. I can't see it, though, not against a hobbled 76ers team at least, but we have to account for the possibility that Utah could lose, so taking the 76ers on a +11 spread is the perfect "middle of the road" stance for us tonight as we look to make it a 100% on our list of parlays.
