NBA Parlay Picks for Wednesday: Unearthing the Value

Wednesday's NBA Parlay

A shocking loss for the Golden State Warriors cost us a successful multi-team parlay last night, but that's OK! We're finding value in a time where teams are struggling to remain competitive, and that's all we can ask for! As such, we're going to keep pushing forwards with these moneyline parlay's, and will add some player props into the same-game options to make things a little spicier.

First up, we're looking to the Chicago Bulls defeating the Atlanta Hawks tonight. Atlanta has been ravaged by COVID and doesn't project to be anywhere near full strength for tonight's contest. In fact, there are 15 players on the Hawks injury report to start the day! Those players include all of Atlant's primary offensive and defensive weapons, which makes this game a "gimme" for the Bulls - or so we hope! As always, when a team is as depleted as the Hawks are, numbers and form go out of the window, and the team just hopes to remain competitive. Of course, the Bulls aren't at full strength either and will miss the impact of Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso, but the trio of Nikola Vucevic, Zach Lavine, and DeMar DeRozan should easily see off the threat of a hobbled Hawks team, making this one of the easiest money lines of the day for us.

Next up we have the Phoenix Suns against the Oklahoma City Thunder - yeah, we want profit! The Suns don't have Deandre Ayton or Jae Crowder for tonight's game, but the presence of Chris Paul and Devin Booker should be more than enough for the incredibly impressive Suns to register another win on the season. Over the last two weeks, Phoenix has won 4 of their last six games and boasts a 4th rated offense and 2nd rated defense. The Thunder are an unpredictable team at the best of times, one game they're dominating and the next they're getting obliterated, that's rebuilding teams for you. However, Oklahoma has one of the worst offenses in the NBA, ranking 29th on the season, and you can't envision such a stagnant brand of basketball dissecting a Suns team that looks like a genuine championship contender. This money line isn't as guaranteed as the Bulls, but it's close to a sure thing, so we're running with it.

Finally, we have the Utah Jazz against the Portland Trail Blazers which will be a fun contest to round out this parlay. What's interesting is that the Trail Blazers are without both Jusuf Nurkic and Cody Zeller, leaving them incredibly thin at center for a game where they need to shut down Rudy Gobert on offense. Of course. you can never write off a team that has Damian Lillard leading the line, but this isn't the playoffs, and Lillard will likely be conserving his energy for late in the season as the team chases a playoff spot. The Jazz will need to find a way to attack the Blazers' defense without the help of Donovan Mitchell who is out of the game due to the league's health and safety protocols. In terms of form, the Jazz has won five of their last 7 games and have a top-10 offense and defense over the last two weeks, while Portland is 2-and-3 over the last two weeks and continues to give up easy points on the defensive end. Utah play fast and free, and while their turnovers could be an issue tonight, it's unlikely that Portlands defense, minus their two primary centers, will stop the Jazz from steamrolling over them

Boston Celtics vs. Los Angeles Clippers Same-Game Parlay

  • Celtics Moneyline
  • Jaylen Brown Over 27.5 points
  • Luke Kennard Under 14.5 points
  • Odds: +441

Celtics vs Clippers Odds

The Boston Celtics had a rude reality check against the Minnesota Timberwolves and need to win tonight's game against the Los Angeles Clippers to regain some self-respect, and more importantly, some momentum. I have Jaylen Brown scoring more than 27.5 points tonight as he tries to prove he's capable of leading an offense in Jayson Tatum's absence, and I also think we see an improved defense with Al Horford and Robert Williams now back sharing the court together, which is why I expect Kennard to be subdued as a scorer in this game. Of course, Boston's job is made easier by the Clippers' lack of players, notably high-level players. Both Paul George and Reggie Jackson are out tonight, which will hinder Los Angeles' ability to generate offense on the perimeter and will place increased pressure on Kennard and Terrance Man throughout the game. Boston may have their own COVID issues and are sliding right now, but their roster is deeper than the Clippers right now, and that should be reason enough to expect them to win this game. If you need any more reason to lean into this parlay, then note that the Clippers have lost 5 of their last 6 games and dead last in offensive rating over the last two weeks!

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Lakers Same-Game Parlay

  • Grizzlies Moneyline
  • Grizzlies -5
  • Odds: +153

Grizzlies vs Lakers Odds

Ja Morant is back and playing like a man possessed, and the Grizzlies have won 4 of their last 7 games while putting together a top-5 defense over the last two weeks. Memphis means business, and now they face an inconsistent Los Angeles Lakers team, who are without numerous stars including Anthony Davis - the Lakers haven't released their injury report for today, but judging off recent games, we can assume it's lengthy. Furthermore, the Lakers have lost 5 of their last seven games and have one of the worst offenses in the NBA, sure Russell Westbrook and LeBron James will likely play, but that fit is like two pieces of separate jigsaws - they don't fit nor do they match. Memphis is a more cohesive unit, full of young and hungry talent. This contest between two Western Conference foes is certainly the most difficult one to call, but I lean towards the Grizzlies based on their current form, team chemistry, and their deeper roster due to health.
