NBA Parlay Breakdown

Things didn't go to plan for us yesterday, and the Kings surprised me by rushing Domantas Sabonis into their starting five, but, we're back again today and aiming to get into the win column.

Our first game seems like a sure-fire winner, as we have the Memphis Grizzlies facing off against the Detroit Pistons. Honestly, Memphis is rolling right now, and I don't see how the Pistons come out of tonight's game as the winner. Cade Cunningham is questionable for tonight's game which is a hammer blow to the Piston's hopes of remaining competitive, because, despite a slow start to life in the NBA, Cunningham had been coming out of his shell before sustaining a hip injury. For the Grizzlies, they continue to be without Dillion Brooks who is a big loss to their rotation, and to a lesser extent, Xavier Tillman and Killian Tillie will both be out tonight too. Yet, the Grizzlies have remained a stout opponent regardless of their injury issues, winning 5 of their last 6 games and maintaining a highly ranked defense and offense. The Pistons, on the other hand, have lost 6 of their last 7 and continue to languish towards the bottom of the league in all major team-based statistics.

Our next game is a little more complicated as it involves the spiraling Brooklyn Nets, who continue to deal with injuries, players wanting out, and a freefall towards the play-in tournament. The Nets opponents for tonight will be the Washington Wizards who are fresh off the news that their best player Bradley Beal will be unavailable for the remainder of the season after electing for surgery. So, we have two teams who are both going through the wringer at the moment, and both sorely need a win. According to Brooklyn's injury report, it seems that we can expect Kyrie Irving to participate in tonight's game, but he will be without the help of Kevin Durant, James Harden, Joe Harris, and LaMarcus Aldridge - he might as well of stayed home, to be honest. The Wizards look far better in terms of health, missing only Beal and Daniel Gafford. Yet, something makes me think this game is Brooklyn's for the taking, maybe it's the wounded animal type of thing, or maybe I'm an old romantic for a team with their back against the wall. However, I want to be smart here, so I'm taking the Nets on a +7-spread, which gives us plenty of options to come out of this contest with a W.

Finally, we have the New Orleans Pelicans against the Miami Heat, but this isn't the same Pelicans team that has struggled all season, no, this is the Pelicans team that now has CJ McCollum to call upon. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how much CJ's presence on the roster changes things against the Heat, especially this early after joining up with his new team. Sure, the Pelicans also snagged Larry Nance Jr in the deal, but he's on the injury report for today, and the Heat have their core starters back in place, so New Orleans will probably continue to wait for another win. Kyle Lowry, Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Duncan Robinson, and Tyler Herro (Probable) are all projected to feature in tonight's game, and that's enough to worry a contending team, let alone a Pelicans roster still pining after Zion Williamson's return. I can't look past Miami for tonight, they're in better form, are a top-10 defensive and offensive team, and have their starters back on the court. Meanwhile, the Pelicans are somewhat of an unknown now, on paper their roster looks vastly improved, but it could take some time to come to fruition. As such, a +8.5-spread feels fair, but I certainly see the appeal of running with Miami on the money line here.

The Golden State Warriors fell to the Utah Jazz last night, and I for one was shocked. Shocked I tell you. Yet, on the second night of a back-to-back Stephen Curry and Co. have a chance to redeem themselves against a struggling New York Knicks team, and I fully expect them to take advantage of this opportunity. New York has been a hotbed of rumors this month, from Julius Randle wanting out, to their head coach being on the hot seat - all of that talk is known to destabilize a franchise, and it would seem the Knicks are no different. The Knicks have won just once in the last two weeks, dropping 5 of their 6 games, and ranked 22nd in offense and 20th in defense over that period - simply put, everything that could be going wrong in New York is. To make matters worse, the Knicks are potentially without RJ Barrett for tonight's game, while Nerlens Noel and Mitchell Robinson are both questionable. The Warriors, on the other hand, will run with the same lineup as last night, and despite losing to the Jazz, should have no problem lighting the Knicks up, especially if Curry gets going from deep. Of course, there seems to be some disagreement between the best shooter in history and Steve Kerr about Curry's recent performances, but I'm not reading too much into that...yet. In terms of form, the Warriors have won 6 of their last 7 games, and have been hovering around a top-10 offense and defense over the last two weeks - so they're definitely performing at a high level. I totally expect a Warriors win tonight, and feel justified in giving the Knicks a liberal +10.5-point head start to keep things within reach for them.

For the second day running, I've decided to go with a long shot to round out our parlay picks, which is why I've taken the Phoenix Suns on the money line, despite this game being an evenly matched contest and a potential preview of the NBA Finals. Still, the Suns are on another dominant stretch of games and have won 6 of their last 7 contests, while throughout the season the team has climbed the statistical leaderboards to sit 2nd in offense and 3rd in defense - they're a juggernaut. The Milwaukee Bucks, who are finally back healthy, have also been swatting away opponents recently, winning 5 of their last 6, and ranking 2nd in offense and 15th in defense over the last 14 days. Nonetheless, I like the Suns to come out on top here, I think that Chris Paul and Devin Booker are incredibly versatile threats that the Bucks will struggle to contain for long stretches of the game, but if Mike Budenholzer slots Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Suns might be in trouble. Neither team has any new injuries to report, so we know what we're going to get in terms of rotations, line-ups, and play style from both sides. Yet, for some reason, I'm high on Phoenix finding a way to win tonight, in a game that will be an undoubted test of their championship credentials. Sure, I think Khris Middleton is going to get to work from deep, and Jrue Holiday will be a wildly impactful piece to tonight's puzzle, but I'm confident that Deandre Ayton will make his presence felt, while Jae Crowder being back in the rotation cannot be understated. If you want to lessen the risk, I think taking the Bucks on a +6 is fair and gives you plenty of scope to see this parlay through.
