NBA Parlay Breakdown

Today's early game sees the Phoenix Suns facing the Detroit Pistons, in what should be a cakewalk for the Western Conference powerhouse. However, Detroit has stumbled upon somewhat of a winning formula in recent weeks, and while still a bad team, have impressive wins against the Utah Jazz and Milwaukee Bucks to their name since the start of the month. Of course, both of the Piston's "statement wins" came against elite squads missing some of their best players, so take from that what you will. But, today, against the Suns, who have all of their main rotation to call upon, another Pistons statement victory seems to be off the cards. The Suns have won 5 of their 6 games since the turn of the year and currently sit 2nd in defensive rating and 8th in offensive rating, which when compared to the Pistons' 30th ranked offense and 22nd ranked defense, shows the gulf in talent between these two sides. While I do expect Phoenix to walk out of tonight's game with a "W" I also expect the Pistons to play hard and push the Suns in a tough game, which is why taking the Pistons on a +14.5 spread makes sense on both sides of the coin.

The second game of this parlay sees us taking in a "league pass game" between the Houston Rockets and Sacramento Kings. Neither team fills you with confidence on any given night, and both have their fair share of problems entering the midway point of the season. But beggars can't be choosers, and with only four games on the docket tonight, including this contest was inevitable. The Rockets enter tonight's game in full health, while the Kings are waiting on a decision regarding Richaun Holmes, who is questionable to start the day. Furthermore, Tristan Thompson's absence will hurt the Kings' interior defense, with both of their primary big men potentially missing tonight's game. Sacramento has lost 5 of their last 8 games, and boasts one of the league's worst defenses along with a poor offense - no wonder they've made some of their best assets available for a trade! The Rockets aren't much better, having lost 5 of their last 7 and sitting 29th for defensive rating and 26th for offensive rating. It's going to be a scrappy game, with a choppy flow, that's for sure! But, one team has to come out winners tonight, and we're expecting that team to be the Kings - they have a deeper roster and more talented players. Still, giving the Rockets a +10 spread covers our backs in case things go terribly wrong for Sacramento, which they usually do.

Finally, we have the Denver Nuggets facing off against the Utah Jazz in what is one of today's better games. The Nuggets are coming into this contest on the second night of a back-to-back after destroying the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night and will feel confident about having a repeat performance against another conference foe. Unfortunately for Denver, the Jazz isn't hampered by injuries anymore, unlike the Lakers were last night, and will have Rudy Gobert manning the middle for tonight's game, which will give Nikola Jokic an interesting problem to solve. It hurts to say, but until the Nuggets get Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr back, they're going to be an inconsistent team that blows both hot and cold on a nightly basis - and you can't find value in that when trying to turn a profit. At the end of the day, the Jazz sits 2nd in net rating, 1st in offensive rating, and 13th in defensive rating - they're one of the best regular-season teams in the NBA, so it makes sense that we're expecting them to defeat a sub-optimal Nuggets team. This is why we're giving Denver a +11 head start for tonight's contest, which feels both reasonable, and smart, considering they're still capable of causing an upset from time to time.

No Stephen Curry or Draymond Green, and potentially no Gary Payton II - the Golden State Warriors are hurt right now, and teams are looking to take advantage. Enter, the Minnesota Timberwolves, a team built around athletic wings, and a multi-skilled big man who can operate on the outside, or tear you apart around the low block - all the things the Warriors struggle with. Now, without their talismanic point guard, and defensive leader, Golden State is susceptible to some tough losses in the coming days and weeks. The Timberwolves may be a bottom 10 team for offensive rating, but they play with discipline, executing Chris Finch's play calls to perfection, and pushing the pace whenever they get an opportunity, while their perimeter defense has improved tremendously this year. While the Warriors do possess multiple highly talented players, who can carry the load in Curry's absence, their rotations have taken a huge blow, and that will cause some tired legs as a knock-on effect. I think the Timberwolves, who are healthy, are slight favorites for this game and expect Anthony Edwards to have a stellar scoring night as a result.
