NBA Parlay Breakdown

The Atlanta Hawks have found their groove recently, and are currently on a six-game winning streak, but their credentials will be tested tonight when they face the Los Angeles Lakers. No, LeBron James will not be participating tonight, but according to the injury report, things are looking good for Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook, while Nate McMillian will be praying Trae Young is cleared for action. After losing their last two games, the Lakers will be hopeful of halting their slide, especially considering the inconsistent performances we've witnessed from this team since the turn of the year. We already know that the Hawks are a poor defensive team, but their top-3 offense has them heading in the right direction at the mid-way point of the season, while the Lakers continue to search for an identity beyond being a group of star names. Los Angeles has lost 4 of their last 7 games and ranked 24th in offense over the last two weeks - which is marginally worse than what we've seen from them this season. If the Lakers were one of the better defensive teams, maybe I could see them grinding out a victory, but they're ranked 17th, which doesn't fill you with confidence. Of course, we have to allow for the possibility of Davis or Westbrook getting hot and willing the team towards a victory, which is why I've given the Lakers a liberal +11-point head start on the spread.

Next up, we have the Chicago Bulls against the Portland Trail Blazers, and it doesn't look good for the Western Conference team. Sure, the Bulls are without Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso, and Derrick Jones Jr., but DeMar DeRozan and Zach Lavine have become a devastating partnership, while Nikola Vucevic has been superb this season. The Blazers, on the other hand, continue to underwhelm, and with Damian Lillard, Nassir Little, Larry Nance Jr, and Cody Zeller all out of tonight's game, it looks like another loss is on the cards for Chauncey Billups' men. Usually, you would feel confident about Jusuf Nurkic controlling the paint for the Trail Blazers, but he will be equally matched by Vucevic tonight, and it's clear the Bulls' have matchup advantages up and down the court. Factor in Portland's 28th ranked defense versus Chicago's top-10 offense, and you begin to see the full picture. Of course, there's always the possibility of CJ McCollum going on a crazy scoring spree, or the Bulls laying a goose egg and we need to account for that by backing the Trail Blazers with a +8 spread, you know, just in case.

Finally, we have the Cleveland Cavaliers against the Detroit Pistons, and in my mind, there can be only one winner! The Cavaliers may be missing Lauri Markkanen, but the duo of Darius Garland and Evan Mobley has clearly expedited the team's rebuilding process, while Jarrett Allen has become an impactful member of their rotation - and don't forget Isaac Okoro, who continues to impress. Neither the Cavaliers nor the Pistons were supposed to be good teams this year, but sometimes a player comes in and changes the team's trajectory, and that, coupled with Garland's sudden rise to prominence, is what we've seen from Cleveland. Obviously, the Pistons' have their eye on the future right now, and Cade Cunningham is starting to adjust to the NBA game, but with just 11 games to their name this season, you can't bet on Detroit winning tonight. What you can do, though, is bet on them being a tough team to play against - maybe the scoreline won't be close, but you can expect the Pistons to keep coming until the final whistle, which is why a liberal +13-point spread made so much sense to me this morning - it's big enough to cover most swings, and has me hopeful of completing this three-team parlay.

Similar to the Pistons, the Orlando Magic aren't expecting to be a good team this year but will have been encouraged by the play of Franz Wagner and Cole Anthony - two players we're backing with prop bets tonight. Wanger has become a reliable facilitator out of the post, and on the short-roll, while Cole is one of the more exciting young guards in the NBA - I'm confident both of them fulfill our prop's tonight. But, I can't look past the Dallas Mavericks when we're picking a winner, and have enough faith in them getting the job done, that I'm backing them on the money line. Luka Doncic is borderline unguardable, and Orlando's 26th ranked defense is going to struggle keeping up with him, especially if Kristaps Porzingis plays tonight, as he forces defenses into tough decisions with his shooting ability. Dallas has been on a good run recently too, winning 5 of their last 7 games, and can also fall back on their top-5 defense should things get tough. R.J. Hampton's absence will also hit Orlando hard, especially as they're already missing four of their best players, which is another reason I can't see them getting anything out of this game - hence, the money line for the Mavericks.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Denver Nuggets Same-Game Parlay

Denver has been a fun team to watch this season! Despite struggling with numerous injuries across their roster, Michael Malone's men have continued to find ways to be impactful and win games. However, against a resurgent Milwaukee Bucks team, the Nuggets may have more than they can handle. According to today's injury report, the Bucks will have their entire big-three available, which means Giannis Antetokounmpo will have all the spacing he needs, and that usually results in a dominant performance for him. Furthermore, Khris Middleton usually reserves his best performances for games where the opposing team is of championship quality - and while the Nuggets don't fall into that category this season, they do have the current MVP, and that should be enough to get Middleton locked-and-loaded. As such, our player pros for the sharpshooting wing seem fair, and with a stroke of luck, he covers both of them for us. Of course, the Nuggets still have Jokic and Aaron Gordon and are more than capable of causing an upset if the Bucks don't come correct from the opening whistle. I really like the Bucks for tonight's game, but understand that Denver won't come in and lie down, so I'm inclined to run with the Nuggets on an +8 spread, which I think is reasonable for both sides.
