NBA Parlay Breakdown

The Memphis Grizzlies are 14-4 since the turn of the year heading into tonight's game against the 12-win Orlando Magic. Ja Morant is currently listed as questionable for the Grizzlies, but they have already proved they can remain competitive in his absence, so regardless of what happens with his availability our outlook on the game shouldn't change. The Orlando Magic, on the other hand, is coming off a victory against the Indiana Pacers and outside of RJ Hampton, have no other short-term injuries to report. The thing to remember with this game is that the Grizzlies are clearly ahead of schedule and have proven themselves to be a legitimate player in the Western Conference, while the Magic continues to wait for Jonathan Isaac and Markelle Fultz to return to the rotation after over a year out with injury. Until the Magic have their two "best" players available, it's hard to tell how far this team has to go before we can label them as competitive. So, for tonight's game, we're expecting the Grizzlies and their 8th-ranked offense to overcome the Magic and their 23rd-ranked defense. A +12.5-point spread for the Magic makes sense, as we do need to allow for Cole Anthony going supernova, and Wendell Carter Jr. locking down Jaren Jackson Jr.

The New York Knicks are teetering on the brink of a crisis, with head coach Thomas Thibodeau reportedly on borrowed time, and last year's star player Julius Randle being shopped around the league - if you believe the rumors, that is. Tonight, the embattled Knicks will have their work cut out for them as they face the Los Angeles Lakers, who themselves are struggling with a controversially poor season. LeBron James is listed as doubtful for tonight's game, and Carmelo Anthony is out with injury, but Anthony Davis looks likely to participate against the Knicks, which will boost the Lakers' chances of adding another win to their record. Overall, the Lakers' poorly constructed roster has struggled for prominence this year, they're ranking 23rd in offense and 17th in defense, whereas the Knicks are 24th and 12th respectively. The thing is, New York's issues stem from coaching disagreements and accusations of favoritism, while the Lakers are centered around poor construction - meaning one team will play for their coach, and the other is out there calling their own number - or at least, that's how it looks from the outside. Vegas has the Lakers listed as slight favorites for this contest, and honestly, I agree. A +7-point spread for the Knicks feels justifiable and should give us enough scope to keep this parlay rolling.

Finally, we have the Oklahoma City Thunder taking on the Sacramento Kings in our league pass game of the day. The Kings will continue to operate without De'Aaron Fox who is dealing with ankle soreness, while Marvin Bagley III is also questionable due to an ankle sprain, while we're unsure of the Thunder's injury list at the time of writing. However, the Kings should have enough in the tank to get back into the win column tonight, but it won't be easy for them against a Thunder team that is on a three-game win streak. A lot of the good things happening in Oklahoma are based around Josh Giddey's impressive performances - especially in the absence of Shai-Gilgeous Alexander, while the Kings are primarily reliant on Tyrese Haliburton and Harrison Barnes. As such, we can expect a fun match-up, even if it does descend into a scrappy game. For me, I think the Kings have a deeper roster and will be fired up for this game as they continue to strive for a post-season appearance, but I expect the Thunder to push them every step of the way. I'm being incredibly generous to the Kings by giving the Thunder a +8.5-point spread, but in terms of value, this made a ton of sense to me, as we want to get over the final hurdle of the parlay and this game is a difficult one to call.

The Phoenix Suns currently sit 2nd in Net Rating, 2nd in defensive rating, and 3rd in offensive rating, simply, they're the epitome of excellent roster construction and high-end talent level. Their opponents for tonight, the Washington Wizards, have fallen off after a strong start to the season, and now they're rumored to be sellers leading up to the trade deadline following a poor run of results. Bradley Beal is having a down year by his standards, and new point guard Spencer Dinwiddie has failed to impress throughout the first half of the season, leaving the Wizards languishing 11th in the Eastern Conference. As you would expect, I am favoring the Suns for tonight's game, especially as Deandre Ayton is back in the rotation, and Bradley Beal is out with a wrist injury. The Wizards have no true go-to scorer in Beals absence and the Suns defense will easily settle into their half-court sets without a superstar scorer to worry about, while the Wizards will struggle to keep pace with Chris Paul's wizardry and Booker's elite level shot-making ability. I'm expecting this game to be a lop-sided affair, which is why I'm running with the money line, and of course, we're expecting the Suns elite back-court to dominate with our player props.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Portland Trail Blazers Same-Game Parlay

  • Portland Trail Blazers +11.5
  • Under 226.5 Points

Odds: +256

The Portland Trail Blazers signaled their intent to enter a rebuild when they traded away Robert Covington and Normal Powell for pennies on the dollar yesterday afternoon, despite what they may say in the coming days. Now, on the heels of a four-game losing streak, the Trail Blazers take on the *almost* fully healthy Milwaukee Bucks, and I fully expect the Bucks to dominate. Damian Lillard continues to be out with injury, and CJ McCollum is struggling to steady the ship on his own. Furthermore, the Trail Blazers are now without their best perimeter defender and bench shooter, as both are headed to the Los Angeles Clippers. As such, the Bucks are in a prime position to dominate proceedings tonight, and that's what I expect them to do. Outside of Jusuf Nurkic, the Trail Blazers will struggle to find a solution to stopping Giannis Antetokounmpo, and even if they manage to do that, who is going to deal with Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday? That's before we even get to their rotational guys. Hence why I've opted for a liberal +11.5-point spread for the Trail Blazers, as one would hope they come out fighting tonight, rather than just roll over and accept a beatdown.
