NBA Parlay Breakdown

I'm going with a moneyline parlay for today, just to mix things up and keep them interesting. Plus, I think I've found some sure-fire victories that can help makes this Saturday one to remember

We're starting with two teams who are struggling, and neither is showing any signs of improvement on the horizon. However, the New York Knicks didn't decimate their roster around the trade deadline, so they're favorites tonight, simply for that reason. The Portland Trail Blazers job isn't made any easier by Damian Lillard being on the injury report, along with Eric Bledsoe, Joe Ingles, Nassir Little, and Keon Johnson - that's a lot of talent to be missing when you're trying to remain competitive in the West. Sure, the Knicks are without RJ Barrett, and his play finishing will be sorely missed, but Julius Randle has to come good at some point, and there's no reason that can't be tonight. Over the last 14 days, both the Knicks and Trail Blazers have losing records, and neither has looked like making progress on offense or defense. Yet, there's more experience within New Yorks' ranks now, including that of the head coach. The Knicks are a better team than their record states, I mean, they didn't lose players during the off-season, it's just the ones they added haven't panned out, but I still feel confident in backing them to win against a spiraling Trail Blazers tonight.

The Sacramento Kings made their playoff intentions clear over the deadline, adding numerous shooting talents, and a genuine All-Star in Domantas Sabonis. Now, the Kings have the scoring talent and playmaking ability to hurt teams with their up-tempo system, and won't feel too concerned when tasked with breaking teams down in the half-court - I do still wonder about their defensive upside, though. But tonight, the Kings take on a Washington Wizards team that is doing everything they can to convince Bradley Beal to stay in the summer, even if that meant punting on Kristaps Porzingis. Of course, the Wizards won't get to see their new partnership in action this season, and may still struggle to grind out games, especially if Porzingis doesn't stay healthy. Furthermore, the Kings have a deeper, more rounded roster, and riding the high that comes with such a franchise-altering trade. As such, I expect Sacramento to run Washington into the ground tonight and attack Porzinigis in multiple pick-and-rolls to get easy looks around the rim. The money line feels right for this game, and I'm very confident of pulling this one out of the hat.

The last game in this parlay is between the Brooklyn Nets and Miami Heat. Brooklyn, despite trading away a disgruntled James Harden, is still on a crazy losing streak and hasn't won in the last two weeks. In fact, over that 14-day time frame, the Nets have the worst defense in the NBA and the 24th ranked offense - it's all going wrong for them right now. According to today's injury report, the Nets are without Nic Claxton, Kevin Durant, Joe Harris, Ben Simmons, and possibly Seth Curry, and Andre Drummond, that's almost half of their roster and means Kyrie Irving will need to carry a huge offensive load tonight. Turning our attention to the Heat, they have their big-three available and are only really sweating on Tyler Herro and P.J. Tucker for tonight, as both are listed as questionable. Despite Miami's recent injury issues, the Heat have remained competitive, winning 4 of their last 7 and ranking 2nd in defense and 14 in offense over the last 14 days, and most of that was without the help of Kyle Lowry and Jimmy Butler, among others. Due to Brooklyn's limited rotation, and the talent the Heat has at their disposal, I can't see the Nets snapping their losing streak tonight, which is why I've added the Heat into today's money line parlay.

The Los Angeles Lakers, like the Brooklyn Nets, are struggling to live up to loft pre-season expectations. However, the purple and gold haven't moved to improve their roster or removed their disgruntled star. Instead, the Lakers are publicly in-fighting, with head coach Frank Vogel and star guard Russell Westbrook seemingly going at each other every day. As such, the team chemistry in Los Angeles isn't working, and the team is suffering as a result, losing 4 of their last 6 games, and boasting a sub-500 record on the season. Furthermore, the Lakers are without a possible 6 guys tonight.

  • Carmelo Anthony - Out
  • Anthony Davis - Probable
  • Dwight Howard - Probable
  • LeBron James - Questionable
  • Russell Westbrook - Questionable
  • Kendrick Nunn - Out

When looking at the Golden State Warriors, things appear to be far more stable. The team has won 5 of their last 7 games and continues to boast the best defense in the NBA, all while waiting for Draymond Green to return to the court. Over the last two weeks, Golden States' offense and defense have slipped slightly, ranking them 10th in offense and 14th in defense, but we can assume that's down to some tired legs on from their aging superstars. Overall, I think the Warriors should dominate tonight, they have no new injuries to worry about and their rotation remains among the best in the NBA. The money line feels safe, and judging by the Lakers' terrible defense recently, our player props fill me with confidence and joy.

When it comes to the Phoenix Suns, there are not many teams who can remain competitive with them for the full 48 minutes of an NBA contest. So, the fact that we're not giving the Orlando Magic a prayer tonight should come as no surprise. The Suns have won six of their last seven games and boast a top-5 offense and defense on the season, while the Magic continue to try and figure things out with their young and inexperienced roster. Diving into any major stat categories feels pointless for this game, that's how little stock I'm putting on Orlando winning tonight. Of course, one thing that could swing this game is injuries, so let's take a quick gander. When looking through the injury report, neither team has anybody new showing up at the time of writing, so the Suns will continue to roll out a killer rotation that hurts teams in multiple ways. Of course, Cameron Payne and Landry Shamet are big misses, but Phoenix has been winning without them and will continue to do so tonight.
