The Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Miami Heat last night, as we predicted. And tonight, the Cavaliers face off against the Chicago Bulls, and once again, we're expecting them to taste defeat. Jarrett Allen has been a huge part of the team's defensive surge this year, and without him, a lot is placed on Evan Mobley's shoulders - which is a lot to ask of a rookie, however impressive they've been. With the Cavaliers' loss last night, their 10 game record reads three wins and seven losses, and we're leaning into that poor form within the first leg of this parlay.

The Bulls aren't exactly a picture of health right now, with six key rotations players on the injury list, however, four of them are potentially ok to play tonight, which does change things a little. The Bulls are 5-and-5 in their last 10 games following a late February slump but should feel good about tonight after getting back in the win column against the Detroit Pistons earlier this week. DeMar DeRozan is unquestionable the player Cleveland will need to limit if they want any chance of snagging a victory here, but with so many teams leaving the mid-range open, it's hard to contain the MVP candidate. I'm leaning into a Chicago win tonight, but feel like a +10-point spread is enough to get us over an early hump in the road, and allows us to smile if the Cavaliers end up getting the W.
I would really like to see a full-strength Indiana Pacers team in the near future, but tonight isn't going to be that night. The Pacers are missing six core rotation guys including Myles Turner and Malcolm Brogdon for their game against the San Antonio Spurs. The Pacers are 3-7 in their last 10 games and despite the great play of Tyrese Haliburton, have been unable to find much rhythm offensively - something which Turner and Brogdon will both help alleviate once they return.
The Spurs, are in a similar boat to the Pacers in terms of form and momentum, having won four of their last 10, but they did beat the Utah Jazz last night in a tightly fought contest - so take from that what you will. While San Antonio hasn't released their injury report at the time of writing, they were missing six players last night, including Doug McDermott, and it's unlikely any of those guys play tonight. As such, the Pacers have a slight advantage due to the Spurs operating on the second night of a back-to-back, but San Antonio is a young team, so wishing for tired legs might be a fool's errand. I'm backing the Spurs to grind out a win tonight, but with both teams struggling for consistency, anything can happen. This is why we're giving the Pacers a +9-point spread heading into the evening.
Our final game sees the Utah Jazz take on the Sacramento Kings, and yes, we're backing the Jazz on the money line. The Kings have fizzled out after their mini resurgence upon adding Domantas Sabonis to their roster and now find themselves back in familiar territory - purgatory. The Kings are 2-and-8 in their last 10 games and have shown no signs of turning things around during that stretch, and despite minimal injuries on the roster, they don't look much better than they did before the trade deadline - despite giving up one of the best young guards in the NBA to help rebuild their roster and push for the playoffs. On the other side of the court, the Utah Jazz is 6-and-4 in their last 10 games, and outside of Bojan Bogdanovic, are fully healthy entering tonight's contest.
The Jazz plays a brand of offense that's tailor-made to cause issues to teams like the Kings - fast-paced, lots of threes, and a physical post presence to battle for rebounds off each miss. I can't see the Kings hanging with Utah in this game, and expect there to be a considerable margin midway through the fourth quarter, as such, I'm running with the money line, and backing a comfortable win for the Jazz tonight.

The Golden State Warriors have won their last two games, but still only sit with three wins in their last 10 attempts, as they continue their fall from early-season grace. Draymond Green's absence can't be understated in its impact on how the team has performed in recent weeks and months. And with Green out again tonight, we can't expect the Warriors to play at their best, as recent performances have told us.
The Milwaukee Bucks, on the other hand, have no new injuries to note and have been performing well in recent weeks winning seven of their last 10 and their last six straight games. Milwaukee was hampered by a string of injuries to begin the season and found themselves operating with a shortened rotation for most of the opening months, but now they're healthy, they're quickly making up for lost time. I'm expecting a Bucks victory tonight - they're the team in form with a ton of momentum behind them, and they're the current defending champions. A +10-point spread gives us room for error should the Warriors come out swinging, too.
Toronto Raptors vs. Denver Nuggets, Single-Game Parlay
- Toronto Raptors +8.5
- Over 222.5 Points
Odds: +184 (Bet $100 to win $184)

You have to give credit to the Denver Nuggets. Missing two of their best players for most of the season, the Nuggets have had a lot to figure out but now find themselves surging back up the Western Conference standings, and look to be in a good spot for when Jamal Murray is ready to re-join the team after a long absence. Denver has won nine of their last 10 games, and are clearly chasing home-court advantage for the playoffs, while Nikola Jokic is back in the running for an MVP title thanks to his current level of play.
The Toronto Raptors have been an enjoyable team to watch this year thanks to their length and athleticism, but, they're not a contending team, nor are they one of the better teams in the league. Credit has to go to Nick Nurse and Toronto's front office, as they have a well-rounded roster with very few weaknesses, the issue is, they also have very little top-tier talent - although Scottie Barnes is going to be elite in the coming years. Toronto won't make life easy for Denver tonight, and with a 5-and-5 record in their last 10 games, can be counted on to fight to the very last whistle. Whenever the Raptors play, there's always the chance things don't go as planned, so giving Toronto a +8.5-point spread makes sense in terms of us covering our bases, but I do think the Nuggets will win this game - they're simply the more talented team.
