NBA Parlay Breakdown

The Memphis Grizzlies enter tonight's game against the Houston Rockets on the second night of a back-to-back after wiping the floor with the Orlando Magic on Saturday night. However, tired legs shouldn't be a problem for the growing Western Conference powerhouse, as their opponents have struggled to win games all season, and while the Rockets will give everything they've got, the gap in talent will be clear from the opening tip. Both teams look to be close to full health, so there can't be any excuses from either side, but with Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr., the Grizzlies have a reliable two-man game to lean on if the Rockets figure out how to stop Memphis' exhilarating transition-based offense. Of course, the Grizzlies aren't impenetrable, and there will be chances for the Rockets to build a lead - basketball is a game of runs, after all. But, I can't see Houston surviving the inside-out onslaught the Grizzlies like to put on teams, which is why the money line for this game is so appealing.

The Utah Jazz are in a similar position to the Memphis Grizzlies, in the sense that tonight, they enter a trap game. Utah should have no problem defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Jazz' roster is superior in almost every way, and with Rudy Gobert manning the middle, the Thunder's perimeter offense is going to get a stern stress test tonight. Of course, we can expect a big game from Donovan Mitchell who often goes under the radar in terms of national coverage but is every bit an offensive star. Oklahoma's task isn't made any easier by their string of injuries, with Luguentz Dort, Derrick Favors, Josh Giddey, Ty Jerome, Mike Muscala, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Aaron Wiggings, and Kenrich Williams all out with injury, so while Mike Conley will be a big miss for the Jazz, I'm sure they'll be able to cope in this game. With so many injuries on the Thunder roster and their lack of high-level talent, the money line on the Jazz screamed "smart decision" which is why we're taking it for tonight's game.

Finally, we have the Phoenix Suns taking on the Milwaukee Bucks, and unfortunately, it's not going to be the slobber-knocker we all envisioned when the schedule first dropped. Phoenix will be without Devin Booker, Chris Paul, Dario Saric, Cameron Johnson, and Frank Kaminsky tonight, and it's Booker and Paul who are going to be the team's biggest misses. Now, the Suns have no elite scorer or playmaker at either guard position, so trying to break down the Milwaukee Bucks just got a lot harder. Milwaukee has no new injuries to be concerned about and their big three will all be playing in tonight's game. As such, we have to back the current NBA Champions to take care of business and send the Suns home with another loss on their record. It's a shame really, as when both teams are healthy this game would have been a must-watch for all NBA fans. Still, we will give the Suns an opportunity to shock us by backing them on a +12.5 spread - let's just hope the Bucks don't run riot and blow Phoenix out of the water.

Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets Same-Game Parlay

  • Nets +8
  • Kevin Durant Under 26.5 Points
  • Kyrie Irving Over 4.5 Assists
  • Odds: +449

Kevin Durant's return from injury makes the Brooklyn Nets are far different opponent than the one the Boston Celtics have manhandled the last two times these teams have met. However, it's worth remembering that Durant has missed considerable time and won't be at his best in tonight's game, nor do we know how many minutes the superstar is going to play. Kyrie Irving is another player who has missed the last two games between these sides but will be healthy tonight.

For the Boston Celtics, this version of the Brooklyn Nets poses a totally different challenge, and they will need to be at their defensive best if they want to come out of the game with another victory under their belt. Heading into the start of last week, the Celtics were gearing up for a "prove yourself" stretch of games, and having won all of them so far, we can feel confident that this current unit is ready to compete against the best rosters in the NBA.

Jayson Tatum is showing that he's an All-NBA talent and Marcus Smart has become the pass-first point guard the Celtics sorely needed to begin the season. Boston will be hoping that Jaylen Brown is cleared to play tonight, as he's been listed as questionable after suffering an ankle sprain against the Atlanta Hawks earlier this week. I think the Celtics should still win tonight's game, but it's going to be a close one, which is why giving the Nets a +8-point head start is the path we're choosing for today's matinee game.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. New York Knicks Same-Game Parlay

  • Knicks +7
  • Over 218.5 Points
  • Odds: +195

You have to feel sorry for New York Knicks fans, this season started with so much promise, and now it's one they will quickly want to forget. At least the Los Angeles Clippers knew this year was going to be a struggle before the season began, and they're also seeing Terrance Mann develop into a legitimate third or fourth option once the team is back to full strength. Of course, when the game between these two sides tips off tonight, nobody will care about records of missed opportunities, instead, they will want their team to win.

The Clippers have been impressive in recent weeks, especially given their lack of elite talent, which is a testament to how well coach Ty Lue has done this year. Neither team has any new injuries, so we can skip that part and focus on both teams' recent form, which is interesting because over the last two weeks the Clippers have won all 4 of their games while the Knicks have lost all 4 of theirs. Julius Randle doesn't look like the dominant force he was last season and New York is lacking a floor general as Derrick Rose continues to rehab from injury and Kemba Walker has been shut down for the season. I'm backing the Clippers to win tonight, but the Knicks do have the better roster if they can figure it out on the night, so a +7-point spread for New York should keep us on track with today's slate of parlays.
