ANALYSIS

Friday NBA Best Bet: A Two-Leg Parlay for You to Tail

Sometimes I see what feels like a sure thing on the sportsbook, but they're too juiced for my liking. So my next course of action is to pair it with something I feel incredibly confident in to get that number down. Today that is what we've done, and we have two legs of a bet that I don't see losing.

2-Leg Parlay: Joel Embiid 1+ Steal / Raptors ML (-145)

(Risk $100 to Win $169)

Line Available at Caesars at Time of Publishing

We'll start with the sweatier of the two bets, the Embiid steal. I'm usually not a fan of betting these because I think they can be a bit random of situational, but it's tough to ignore how this man has at least one steal in 15 straight games. Anytime you can get something that has hit 15 in a row as a leg in a parlay, you have to take it. San Antonio ranks about league average to steals allowed as a team and to centers. With all of the injuries San Antonio is dealing with, we could see more sloppy play, hopefully resulting in more turnovers.

Now let's talk about our Raptors ML leg. If you live under a rock and saw I was taking Raptors ML over Utah, you might try to drug test me at first glance. Luckily I'm not Patrick Star, so I'm aware of the product Utah will be putting on the basketball court tonight. The Jazz will be without Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Mike Conley, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Joe Ingles. In other words, their entire starting lineup. On the other hand, the Raptors are strolling in mostly healthy and should have no problem putting the Utah bench away early.

A bet that has hit in 15 straight and an NBA starting lineup facing off against a bunch of bench players. I don't do these two-leggers often, but I couldn't be happier with this one. If the Embiid Steal moves to 1.5 on the books, try to hit the same-game parlay with it and bump back down to 0.5. In that scenario, you wouldn't be able to pair it with Raptors ML, but I think Embiid double-double is a safe leg that will knock down your juice and be worth your while. Both of our legs here are early games, so we'll be able to count our money before bedtime hopefully.
