NBA Parlay Breakdown

Let's start with the Golden State Warriors against the Memphis Grizzlies in the third meeting between these two teams. The season series is tied up at 1-1, with the Warriors winning the last meeting between the pair. Of course, the feel-good factor of Klay Thompson's return to the floor hasn't worn off yet, and following a successful season debut from the second splash brother, the Warriors are poised to kick things into another gear - but they may need to wait on Draymond Green returning to full fitness before doing so, with the multi-faceted forward out for tonight's game due to calf tightness. Memphis, who is one of this year's breakout teams, will be excited to welcome Kyle Anderson back to the rotation but will be sweating on Steven Adams' availability, with the big listed as questionable to start the day. Adams' size and strength would give Memphis an advantage around the rim, as the Warriors continue to be undersized in James Wiseman's injury-induced absence. In terms of form, the Grizzlies come into this one on the crest of a wave, having won all 7 of their games over the last two weeks, while the Warriors have gone 3-and-3 in the same time frame. While this game will be a battle, and could easily go either way, I'm backing the Warriors to win and Klay Thompson to impress in his second game of the season.

Next up, the Eastern Conference-leading Chicago Bulls take on the Detroit Pistons in what is the second night of a back-to-back for Motor City. Detroit will come into tonight's game full of confidence after defeating the Utah Jazz last night, and the fact that Cade Cunningham dropped a career-high shouldn't go unnoticed, because if he's starting to adjust to the NBA game, the Pistons are a far sterner prospect. However, the Bulls are a different prospect tonight and they have won their last two meetings against their conference rivals, now, with almost a fully healthy rotation, Chicago will want to make it three wins from three meetings, and should have no problem doing so. Sure, Detroit just defeated one of the better Western Conference teams, but Rudy Gobert wasn't on the floor and their rotation was limited - Chicago won't be so depleted and we can't ignore the prospect of the Pistons running out of gas down the stretch. We also need to take recent form into account, as momentum plays a huge part in a team's immediate success in this league, and the Bulls have won 5 of their last six games in the last 14 days while the Pistons have gone 4 and 3. Perhaps Detroit isn't as bad of a team as their record suggests, or maybe Cunningham adjusting to the NBA has vastly raised the team's ceiling, but expecting the Pistons to beat two top teams in two days is a step too far. And for that reason, I'm riding with Chicago tonight.

Finally, we have a tough matchup between the Phoenix Suns and Toronto Raptors. From a neutral standpoint, this game will be awesome! Two contrasting play styles with some great talent on display make this game a must-watch! But from an analytic and gambling standpoint, it's a hard contest to call. However, we must try our best! Let me premise this by saying that if you choose to back Toronto, that's completely understandable, but I have to go with the team that is sitting second in the Western Conference despite having no notable big man for the last week or two. Luckily, that's changed for Phoenix, with Deandre Ayton back in the rotation, joining Chris Paul and Devin Booker to reunite the team's big three, and we can't underestimate the impact Jae Crowder has had on his team now that he's healthy again too. Sure, the Suns are missing a couple of deep rotation players but it shouldn't be anything they can't work around. However, the Raptors will be concerned at the prospect of entering tonight's game without Scottie Barnes and Gary Trent Jr. who are both questionable to start the day, and without those two guys, things look far tougher for the Canada-based team. Toronto has won 6 of their last 7 games and looks to be a fierce opponent when healthy, but if two of their primary 8 guys are missing, you can't bank on them winning their 7th game in 8 attempts. I also prefer the way Phoenix plays, and think it's a fluid offense that could hurt a young Toronto team that's still learning some of the more nuanced aspects of NBA defense. As such, I'm riding with Phoenix to close out this three-team parlay.

The Los Angeles Clippers continue to limp on without either of their star wings. However, things look far worse for the California-based team when you factor in Luke Kennard's absence alongside Isaiah Hartenstein - because where is playmaking and floor spacing going to come from outside of Reggie Jackson? Luckily, the Clippers face off against another team with injury issues in the Denver Nuggets, the only difference is, Denver has the current MVP in their rotation along with Aaron Gordon who has been solid for most of this season. Granted, both teams are lacking depth, and both teams would prefer to have deeper rotations at this point of the season, but when you put these rosters on paper, the Nuggets still come out on top. While Denver's guard rotation has been pitiful all season, they have stayed afloat thanks to the ever-impressive passing of Jokic, who we're backing to get 8 or more assists tonight. Somehow, despite their injury issues and depleted roster, the Clippers have won 3 of their last 7 games, and remain a thorn in teams sides, but the Nuggets have found a recipe that's seen them go 4 and 2 in the last two weeks, and now, we're backing them to get another win tonight. After all, two stars beat no stars, right?

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Same-Game Parlay - 8:00 pm ET

This is the second meeting of the season between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the New Orleans Pelicans, with Minnesota winning the first contest comfortably. The Pelicans have been vastly improved in recent weeks, but even those improvements have failed to result in consistent wins. Sure, New Orleans got a win over the Golden State Warriors last week, but they followed that win up with a loss to the Toronto Raptors, and are 2 and 6 in the last two weeks. The Timberwolves, on the other hand, are 4 and 3 over the same time frame, but have been playing with a defense that would rank them sixth in the NBA had they been at that level all season. Offensively, the Timberwolves are a diverse threat that can hurt you on the perimeter or around the rim thanks to athletic slashers such as Anthony Edwards, who is capable of dunking on you one moment, then killing you with a stop-and-pop the next. Neither team has much to worry about in the form of injuries, and both will roll with their usual rosters, minus maybe one or two role players. While the Pelicans surprised us last time, by defeating the league-leading Warriors, I can't see them doing it again tonight. So, I feel very confident in backing the Timberwolves to win on the money line.
