NBA Parlay Breakdown

With profit in mind, the first game of our three-legged parlay is the Phoenix Suns against the Charlotte Hornets, and we're backing the Suns. Phoenix will have a bee in their bonnet after losing to the Boston Celtics on New Year's Eve but they will need a better performance from Jalen Smith if they want to hide their issues at center. Deandre Ayton, JaVale McGee, and Frank Kaminsky are all out tonight, which will give the Hornets some hope of replicating the Celtics' success, however, Devin Booker is unlikely to have another poor shooting night, and Chris Paul will look to exploit LaMelo Ball's defensive weaknesses later today. The Hornets, who are sweating on the availability of Miles Bridges, have a bottom-3 defense this season, despite being one of the better offensive teams in the NBA. As such, we've seen the Hornets become one of the more inconsistent teams in the league as they wait for their young stars to develop their defensive understanding. It's those defensive issues, that when playing against Chris Paul, usually let a team down, and we're expecting that to happen here, despite how easily the Hornets can put points on the board.

Next up, we have the Dallas Mavericks against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Both of these teams are still dealing with COVID-induced issues, and neither will be close to full strength, however, Luka Doncic is currently available to play, which gives Dallas a significant edge coming into the game. The Mavericks are awaiting a decision on Kristaps Porzingis' ability to suit up tonight, with him being listed as doubtful on the injury report, while Trey Burke, Brandon Knight, Willie Cauley-Stein, and Boban Marjanovic are all out. Usually, with so many impactful players missing from a team's rotation, their opponent would be favored for a victory, but the Thunder are in a bad spot themselves! Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is out tonight, along with Darius Bazley, Tre Mann, and potentially Lugentz Dort who is questionable to start the day. Sure, the Thunder has been a resilient team all season, but without Gilgeous-Alexander their chances of success plummet, especially when Doncic is lining up against you. We're backing the Mavericks to cruise to victory tonight, primarily because they have the best player along with the increased talent level of their rotation.

Finally, we are backing the Toronto Raptors to pile further pressure onto the struggling New York Knicks. Things in New York keep getting worse, and after their latest loss, they now find themselves under .500. The Knicks are missing 9 players tonight, and that could rise to 10 if Evan Fournier's ankle isn't fit for purpose at game time. Kemba Walker, Derrick Rose, Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson, and Nerlens Noel are all important members of the Knicks key rotation, and with all of them missing tonight's game, New York will be running their skeleton crew which doesn't bode well when facing a healthy again Raptors team. In fact, Toronto only has three players on their injury list, two of which don't feature for the team when it's healthy anyway, the third player is incredibly impressive rookie Scottie Barnes who is listed as probable for tonight's contest. Nick Nurse will be excited to have his full roster back after weeks of dealing with turnover and injuries, and with the Knicks in the midst of their own crisis right now, we have to back the Raptors winning tonight.

Boston Celtics vs. Orlando Magic Same-Game Parlay

  • Celtics Moneyline
  • Franz Wagner Over 18.5 Points
  • Odds: +117

Click Here for Celtics vs Magic Odds

The Orlando Magic continue to struggle with health and enter tonight's game missing 8 players, with a further three listed as questionable. Rookie Franz Wagner has found himself thrust into a larger role in recent weeks, and has responded by scoring 20 or more points in the Magic's last 10 games. With the Magic still missing multiple pieces to their offense, we're backing Wagner to flirt with another 20-point game tonight with a player prop of over 18.5 points, which given his current role, seems a reasonable bet. The Boston Celtics, who looked like a different team in their New Year's Eve victory over the Phoenix Suns, are almost back to full health, and should Jayson Tatum and Robert Williams be cleared to play, will only be missing their third-string center Enes Freedom for the contest. Regardless of Tatum and Williams' presence in tonight's game, Boston has the talent and depth to overcome an underwhelming Magic team that was struggling before COVID got its claws into their roster. I can't see a world where the Magic win tonight, they're too short-handed and are relying on Wagner and Gary Harris to lead the line for them on both ends of the floor, while the Celtics can call upon All-Star wing Jaylen Brown as their focal point of attack if needs be. As such, we're taking Boston on the Money Line and feeling mighty confident about doing so.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Same-Game Parlay

  • Lakers Moneyline
  • LeBron James under 7.5 Assists
  • LeBron James over 2.5 Three's
  • Odds: +322

Click Here For Lakers vs Timberwolves Odds

LeBron James is 37-years-old, and he's outperforming 98% of the NBA right now, let that sink in for a moment. And tonight, when the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Minnesota Timberwolves, we can expect James to put on yet another world-beating performance. As such, we're backing James to stay true to recent form and score more than 2 three's against a Timberwolves team whose defensive ability changes as often as the direction of the wind, while also expecting his assist numbers to stick around the season average and fall below 8 dimes in the contest. The Timberwolves will be without Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell for tonight's game, and they are always awaiting decisions on Anthony Edwards and Taurean Prince who are both listed as questionable to start the day. Yet, without their two star players, the Timberwolves will struggle against a Lakers team with a point to prove after losing 5 of their last 7 games. Minnesota hasn't faired much better in recent weeks, losing 4 of their last 6 contests, and ranking in the bottom 10 for both offense and defense over the last two weeks. We're backing the Lakers to win tonight because quite frankly, LeBron James is playing too well for them to lose against a depleted Timberwolves team - or at least, that's the hope!
