NBA Parlay Picks For Monday: Toronto Raptors vs. Brooklyn Nets, Chicago Bulls Vs. Miami Heat, And More

Monday's Parlay of the Day

  • Cleveland Cavaliers +8
  • Brooklyn Nets +10
  • Charlotte Hornets +11

Odds: +276 (Bet $276 to Win $100)

The Cleveland Cavaliers enter tonight's game without Darius Garland, Caris LeVert, Rajon Rondo, and Collin Sexton, yet by having their star defensive trio available, you tend to think they're going to remain competitive. However, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been a tough opponent this season so we have to give them some respect. Over the last 14 days, the Timberwolves have seriously struggled on offense, ranking 27th in the NBA, and if they struggle to find some offensive flow tonight, they're not coming away from the game with anything tangible.

Cleveland, on the other hand, ranks first in spread differential on the season, covering the spread by an average of +4.4 - but without Garland and LeVert we can't realistically expect that to happen tonight. What I am expecting is for the Timberwolves to grind out a victory against one of the best defensive units in the league, primarily due to Minnesota's perimeter scoring. I also expect Anthony Edwards to take advantage of the Cavaliers' injured guard rotation, which makes him more likely to have a big game. I think a +8-point spread for the Cavaliers gives us every chance of knocking the first leg of this parlay out of the park.

The next game sees the Brooklyn Nets, who are still without Kevin Durant, Joe Harris, Ben Simmons, and Kyrie Irving, taking on the Toronto Raptors. The additions of Seth Curry and Andre Drummond seriously improved Brooklyn's makeshift unit, and they now look like a viable NBA team again, but the Raptors possess great athleticism, length, and shot-making - two high-level role players aren't going to turn the tide enough for me to favor Brooklyn over a combative and impressive Raptors squad. Fred VanVleet's potential return for this game could also be a deciding factor, with the veteran guard listed as questionable to start the day. Sure, Toronto's recent form has been pretty bad, but against a hobbled Nets team, they're going to fancy their chances of getting back in the win column. I'm giving the Nets a 10-point head start tonight, which allows us to cover multiple outcomes in one go, and should Curry or Drummond get hot, we can still be in with a chance of hitting on today's parlay.

Our final game sees the Charlotte Hornets take on the Milwaukee Bucks, and I can only see one outcome here. Sure, the Hornets have a high-level offense but the absence of Gordon Hayward has been a large hindrance on their performances recently, and the team's defense - ranked 19th on the season - continues to let them down. The Bucks, however, are essentially back to full strength after spending most of the season with injury issues and are working the kinks out in their rotations. I know the Bucks have lost 3 of their last 4 games, but their big three are strong on both ends of the floor and should be more than capable of hanging with the Hornet's high-octane offense - especially if Jrue Holiday can limit LaMelo Ball's influence as a playmaker. I think the Bucks are primed to win tonight by a comfortable margin, which is why I'm giving the Hornets a +11-point spread to try and even the playing field.

Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls: Same-Game Parlay

  • Chicago Bulls +8
  • DeMar DeRozan Under 30.5 Points
  • Duncan Robinson Under 2.5 Threes

Odds: +414 (Bet $414 to Win $100)

Both the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat come into tonight's game missing some important pieces to their puzzle, but when looking at both the rosters, it's Miami's that has the big-game experience. While tonight's game might not be classified as a "must-win" we're about to witness two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference go toe-to-toe. Kyle Lowry and Markieff Morris are the main absentees for Miami, while the Bulls are still without Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso, and possibly without Nikola Vucevic who is listed as questionable to start the day. In terms of current form, both teams have won 3 of their last 4 games, and both have stars that have begun to play at a high level over the last few weeks. DeMar DeRozan's level of play has placed him in the MVP conversation, while Bam Adebayo has recently been earning praise for his all-around performances for Miami.

This is a tough game to call, both teams have strength in depth and both play contrasting styles of basketball, but while I do think Miami will limit DeRozan's mid-range success tonight, I think the Bulls roster may be a little deeper and that could give them a slight advantage if the game comes down to the wire. Tyler Hworderro will be another swing factor as he continues to have a sixth man-of-the-year caliber season, but I expect Duncan Robinson to struggle - as he has all year, which bodes well for our prop bet. I'm giving the Bulls a +8-point boost here, and I hope that's enough to see us over the hump, assuming our prop bets hold up.

Sacramento Kings vs. Oklahoma City Thunder: Same-Game Parlay

  • Oklahoma City Thunder +10
  • Domantas Sabonis Over 19.5 Points
  • Domantas Sabonis Over 5.5 Assists
  • Domantas Sabonis Over 13.5 Rebounds

Odds: +859 (Bet $859 to Win $100)

A slight long-shot for our final parlay of the day, and it's heavily reliant on the performance of the Sacramento Kings' newest star player: Domantas Sabonis. Since joining the Kings, the West Coast outfit has used the impressive big man as an offensive hub, allowing him to rack up big numbers in each game he's player - so we're backing him to do it again against a weak Oklahoma City Thunder team. In terms of the actual contest, this is the fourth time these teams have faced off this season, with the Kings winning 2 of the past 3 - and that was before they strengthened their rotation at the trade deadline.

Another part of expecting a big Kings win is that the Thunder are missing multiple players heading into tonight's contest with Josh Giddey, Luguentz Dort, Ty Jerome, and Mike Muscala being the primary names missing from the team sheet. I think this game is a potential blow-out, but as it's the Kings, I know that anything is possible - including a Thunder victory. A +10-point spread might be a little low, but that's the beauty of this parlay being a longer shot than normal. I'm heavily favoring the Kings tonight, and think that Sabonis is going to be the most dominant player on the floor.
