NBA Parlay Breakdown

Our first game of the day sees the Philadelphia 76ers competing against the Orlando Magic, and yes, this game will be closer than it should be, due to the Sixers' injury issues. Danny Green, Shake Milton, Ben Simmons, and Matisse Thybulle are all out tonight, as Philadelphia tries to navigate losing some of their best defenders. The Magic, who are still without Markelle Fultz, Jonathan Isaac, E'Twaun Moore, and Michael Carter-Williams, is what you would consider healthy, due to the aforementioned players hardly featuring through the first half of the season. Still, the Sixers can still lean on Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris tonight, and that's a huge bonus, especially against a struggling team like Orlando! The Magic has lost 6 of their last 7 games, and currently rank 28th in offense and 26 in defense, by all accounts they're a poor team and will be until their star players return from long-term injuries. As such, backing the Sixers, however shorthanded, on the money line for tonight's game makes perfect sense, and feels right.

Next up, we're backing the Miami Heat to get the job done against the Portland Trail Blazers. Sure, CJ McCollum is off the injury report, and will likely participate tonight, but without Damian Lillard, the Blazers are a middling team at best and are further hindered by the likely absence of Larry Nance Jr. and Norman Powell. Miami has their own problems to deal with! Kyle Lowry is away from the team, and Markieff Morris is out of tonight's contest as he continues to work towards game fitness. Yet, the Heat have won 5 of their last 6 games, and have a trio of Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, and Tyler Herro to fall back on, along with a deep bench rotation that has all recently returned from health and safety lay-offs. I can't see Portland winning tonight - they have one of the most porous defenses in the NBA, and their superstar player is out of the line-up, and for a team going through a crisis, both of those things carry huge weight. This feels like Miami's game to lose, and it's rare they drop the easy ones, so I'm comfortable backing them as part of this parlay.

The last game in this parlay is the Cleveland Cavaliers vs the Chicago Bulls. Looking at the standings, you could be forgiven for rushing to the computer to place a bet on Chicago getting an easy W, but this isn't that Bulls team, because right now, they're relying on 10-day contracts and two-way players to stay afloat. Lonzo Ball, Zach Lavine, Javonte Green, and Derrick Jones Jr are all missing tonight, and yes, that will have an incredible impact on the Bulls' chances of winning this game. Sure, Chicago can lean on DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic as their leading stars, but without somebody to tee them up, you're going to see a lot of post-ups and isolation basketball, with neither being conducive to winning basketball in 2022. The Cavaliers, however, are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, and while they miss Rick Rubio setting up the offense, they aren't the pushover many expected them to be before the season began. In fact, the Cavaliers have won 6 of their last 7 games, and sit third in the NBA for defensive rating, which shows how serious of an opponent they can be. If the Bulls were healthy, they would get my vote tonight, but they're not, so I'm riding with the Cavaliers on the money line to round out today's parlay.

Boston Celtics vs. Charlotte Hornets Same-Game Parlay

Fantastic offense vs. solid defense, that's what we can expect from tonight's game between the Charlotte Hornets and Boston Celtics. Charlotte currently ranks 5th in the NBA for offensive rating, thanks to their high-paced approach, and talented scoring weapons, but the Celtics sit 5th in defense and should have no problem slowing down the Hornets' attack throughout the game. On the flip side, Charlotte's defense sits 24th in the NBA and the Celtics offense sits 22nd, so it really is one skill set vs the other tonight, as neither team projects to be the complete package.

However, if Jayson Tatum takes over tonight, as he did against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, we could be talking about a serious win for the Celtics, to keep them above .500. In terms of injuries, neither team has much to worry about, but the Celtics will be hoping Marcus Smart, who is listed as questionable to start the day, is cleared to play tonight - because somebody has to contain LaMelo Ball! Overall, I feel confident in saying that the Hornets are a poor defensive team, but feel that the Celtics troubled start to the season has skewed their offensive numbers - this is a team with two elite wings and one of the better rim runners in the NBA, after all, so I'm backing them to figure things out on offense tonight and take care of business!

Steven Adams being back on the floor for the Memphis Grizzlies is a huge bonus heading into tonight's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, one that could potentially limit Antetokounmpo's success around the rim, which is why our first player prop has the superstar being contained to under 30 points. Our other player prop sees Ja Morant going for more than 27 points, and considering the tear he's been on this past month, that seems more likely than not, and I'm trusting my gut!

In terms of the actual game, the Grizzlies have been solid over the last two weeks, winning 6 of their last 7 contests. The Bucks, however, have won just 2 of their last 7, partly due to a resurgence of COVID cases within their roster. Still, both teams are reasonably healthy heading into tonight's contest, and neither looks susceptible to anything specific. In fact, the Bucks sit 9th in offense and 7th in defense, and the Grizzlies are 8th in offense and 10th in defense - that should show you how close this game will be. For me, I like the Bucks championship experience, and with a potential Jrue Holiday return (he's questionable to start the day) feel the Bucks should just about edge this game, and that's where I'm placing my faith to round out our list of parlays for the day.
