NBA Parlay Breakdown

The Chicago Bulls have lost 7 of their last 10 games and look like a shadow of the team that was dominating the Eastern Conference earlier this season. A troubled defense and haphazard offense has left the Bulls looking like false starters, and now, sitting 5th in the conference standings, the future isn't looking as bright for DeMar DeRozan and co. Tonight, the New Orleans Pelicans - who have looked much better recently, will be the latest team to face Chicago in their current state.

Although New Orleans has been more competitive recently, they've still lost 6 of their last 10, but have seemed more cohesive since CJ McCollum joined their roster, and that's a factor to consider heading into this game, especially since neither team is in good form right now. According to the Bulls injury report, DeMar DeRozan is questionable for tonight's game, but we can expect to see Zach Lavine who is probable, while the Pelicans are sweating on Brandon Ingram due to hamstring soreness, but will be pleased to have Larry Nance Jr. listed as probable. I do think this game is evenly matched considering how both teams are playing lately but will be giving the Pelicans a +8.5-point spread to cover all of our bases.

The Indiana Pacers lost to the Sacramento Kings last night, and come into their contest against the Memphis Grizzlies in poor form. Now, on the second night of a back-to-back, the Pacers will have to find a new gear if they have any hopes of defeating one of the better teams in the Western Conference, and considering Indiana have lost 6 of their last 10, including a March 15 game against Memphis, they can't be very confident here. Memphis, on the other hand, come into this game having won 7 of their last 10, including an impressive victory over the Brooklyn Nets last night - and yes, Brooklyn had Kyrie Irving on the court for that game. Even more impressive, is the Grizzlies are finding ways to win despite Ja Morant being out with injury. At the time of writing, neither team has released their injury reports, but as both rosters played last night, and suffered no setbacks during the game, we can assume the rotations will be almost identical. Keeping that in mind, I have to go with the Grizzlies by a wide margin, which is why I'm giving the Pacers a +14.5-point head start.

The final game of our three-team parlay sees the Washington Wizards face the Milwaukee Bucks, and again, I'm not expecting a close game here. The Wizards, despite their best efforts to be competitive this season, have fallen by the wayside in the second half of the season and are without Bradley Beal for the foreseeable future. Washington has lost 8 of their last 10 games and looks to be totally outmatched heading into tonight's contest against Milwaukee. When talking about the Bucks, you can't help but smile at how underrated they've been this season, especially considering the health issues they've had to navigate all year, but now that they're healthy, the whole league should be on notice. Over their last 10 games, the Bucks have won 8 times, and are quickly climbing up the Eastern Conference standings. Milwaukee will be going into tonight's game without the services of Khris Middleton, which is a big blow, but considering the Wizards don't have Kyle Kuzma or Beal, Milwaukee should be able to deal with the loss. I'm not expecting a close affair here, so will be giving the Wizards a +15.5-point spread, but I would also understand if you went with a straight money line for this game.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors, Single-Game Parlay

  • Cleveland Cavaliers +9.5
  • Over 212.5 Points

NBA Parlay Odds: +134 (Bet $100 to Win $134)

When healthy, the Cleveland Cavaliers are one of the better defensive teams in the NBA and have been an enjoyable Cinderella story this year, considering they were expected to be one of the worst teams in the league. However, the Cavaliers will be without Jarrett Allen tonight, and that is a huge blow to how they operate as a team, while Collin Sexton continues to be absent with a meniscal tear. Over their last 10 games, the Cavaliers have won 5 times, which is respectable given the strength of some of their opponents. However, the Toronto Raptors aren't pushovers, and with their size, length, and athleticism, will pose a threat that has to be respected. Nick Nurse has his team playing a robust brand of basketball, and the Candian team is reaping the benefits of such vigorous coaching. Over their last 10 games, the Raptors have won 6 times but did lose to the Cavaliers when the teams faced off on March 7. Still, with OG Anunoby and Gary Trent Jr both potentially available tonight (both are questionable on the injury report) the Raptors could come into this game at almost full strength. I do think this game will be a close contest that will go down to the wire but will be backing the Cavaliers on a +9.5-point spread to cover all of our bases.

Phoenix Suns vs. Denver Nuggets, Single-Game Parlay

  • Denver Nuggets +7.5 Points
  • Under 232 Total Points

NBA Parlay Odds: +130 (Bet $100 to Win $130)

In a day full of "League Pass Games" we have a genuine solid match-up between the Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets. Western Conference powerhouse vs. the reigning MVP and current MVP candidate. But, with how Phoenix has operated this season, it's hard to ever see them falling apart, especially against a Nuggets team missing two of its top three talents - but that's been the case all season, and Denver has navigated those issues fantastically well. The Suns have notched up 8 wins in their last 10 games, occupy first place in the Western Conference, and right now, are considered to be championship favorites come the end of the season. Denver, on the other hand, has won 6 of their last 10 and doesn't look like a team that will roll over for anybody. Neither team has released their injury report at the time of writing, and in a game like this one, absences can make all the difference. So, I'm going to be rather cautious in how I approach this parlay, a +7.5-point spread for the Nuggets is large enough that losing by a couple of possessions won't hurt us but small enough that it shows we have faith in their ability to run the Suns close down the stretch.
