NBA Parlay Breakdown

The Charlotte Hornets and Dallas Mavericks will face off later today, and despite the Mavericks' recent good form, Vegas has Dallas as -0.5-point favorites on the spread. Sure, Spencer Dinwiddie's absence is going to hit hard, as will the continued absence of Tim Hardaway Jr. but I can't see the Hornets finding ways to slow down a hot Luka Doncic. Maybe I'm missing something! But as things stand, I have the Mavericks as heavy favorites for tonight's game, even if the Hornets are fully healthy barring Gordon Hayward. Charlotte has gone 5-and-5 over their last 10 games, and continues to be one of the most efficient offenses in the NBA, ranking 10th in the league - but it's their 23rd ranked defense that continues to let them down. The Mavericks, on the other hand, have won 8 of their last 10 games and sit 6th in defensive rating - although their 16th ranked offense can be worrisome at times. I understand that Dinwiddie has helped ease the creative burden on Doncic and that the team will feel his absence, I also understand the Hornets are one of the most exciting teams in the league at present. But none of that has me worrying about the Mavericks dropping a game tonight - but this is the NBA, and upsets happen every night. As such, I'm giving the Hornets a +11-point spread which should be adequate for getting us over the initial hump of this three-team parlay.

Our next game sees the Detroit Pistons facing off against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This will be the fourth time these two teams have played each other this season, with the Pistons currently leading the series 2-1. Despite their billing as one of the worst teams in the league right now, the Pistons have won 5 of their last 10 games and are slowly showing signs of internal development - of course, that's not going to help them this season, but does bode well for the future. The Cavaliers have lost 6 of their last 10 games, and although they're yet to release their injury report for tonight, it's fair to envision the team missing Jarrett Allen and Collin Sexton, as both missed yesterday's game against the Denver Nuggets. I still like the Cavaliers for tonight's game, but the Pistons' are the same push-over they were earlier in the season, and that's an important caveat to remember heading into this game. I'm giving the Pistons a +14-point spread here, not because I expect them to lose by a wide margin, but because you never know which version of the team is going to turn up.

Finally, we have the Los Angeles Lakers taking on the Washington Wizards, in a game that the Lakers will desperately want to win, not because of revenge or anything like that, just because they need all the good vibes they can muster at present. The Lakers have won 3 of their last 10 but did manage to grind out an overtime victory against the Toronto Raptors last night, and given their collective age, that might be a bad sign for tonight. The Lakers are primarily made up of aging stars and on the second night of a back-to-back following an overtime game, tired legs are almost guaranteed. Wayne Ellington, Anthony Davis, Carmelo Anthony, Kendrick Nunn, Mason Jones all missed last night's game for the Lakers, and although their injury report hasn't been released yet, we can assume all of these names will remain on there. The Wizards are struggling too, and have only won twice in their last 10 games - so we're in for a real dogfight tonight. Like the Lakers, Washington is on the second night of a back-to-back but doesn't have the extra milage that overtime brings. Still, Bradley Beal, Cassius Winston, Isaiah Todd, Jordan Schakel, Vernon Carey Jr are all likely to miss tonight's game for Washington, which hurts their strength in depth. I like the Lakers to come out of this game with the W, but can't rely on them to string consistent performances together at present, so will be backing them on a +9-point spread, as I can't see this game being won by more than a couple of possessions.

The Milwaukee Bucks are finally healthy and finding a rhythm after a tough season has left them at the back of people's minds when it comes to discussing Eastern Conference challengers. Milwaukee has won 8 of their last 10 games and has shown little sign of slowing down their charge up the conference standings. The Minnesota Timberwolves are also surging at the moment, and have finally begun to shake off the "also-ran" tag that's followed them around for eternity. Karl-Anthony Towns is starting to look like a true superstar, while Anthony Edwards' rapid development has people excited for what his career has to bring. Over the last 10 games, the Timberwolves have won 9 of their last 10 games, and have done so behind exceptional offensive execution and a stellar commitment to the defensive end. This game is a tough one to call, as both teams are in great form and are fighting for playoff relevancy. Still, I have to give the slight edge to the reigning NBA champions, but it is a minimal edge. As such, I'll be riding with the Timberwolves on a +9.5-point spread, and will be sitting on the edge of my seat as we see this game come down to the wire.
