The NBA is back in action tonight with a 14-game slate, and we will immediately caution against making a 14-pick parlay. At sports gambling conferences, the executives from the big gambling companies always make fun of gamblers who place those types of bets.
Yes, they welcome them, because they are almost always losers. What those executives fear is sharp gamblers who can consistently hit three- and four-game parlay picks, whether they are player props, point spreads, or moneylines. They want dumb gamblers, not sharp gamblers, and our aim here is to make you a member of the latter group rather than the former group.
We have had an interesting first couple of weeks in this NBA season, with Boston, Philadelphia, Denver, and Dallas asserting themselves as the quick starters. The underachievers list begins with the Miami Heat, despite Bam Adebayo’s triple-double the other night, and it also includes the Bulls (3-5), Kings (2-4), and Grizzlies (1-6).
Yes, it is early, but those types of trends can put jobs in jeopardy, and right now the offshores are listing Taylor Jenkins of Memphis to be the first NBA coach fired. One day we will call that the “Steve Nash Award.”
Tonight, everyone will have had a full day of rest after no games were played on Tuesday, so each team should be playing with its full complement of healthy players. The ESPN games are San Antonio vs. New York and Golden State vs. Denver. The over/under on the number of words in Gregg Popovich’s between-quarters interview is 2½.
Best NBA Parlays Today – Wednesday, November 8: 4-Leg Parlay Picks (+1200)
Leg-1 Parlay Pick: Philadelphia +2½ vs. Boston
The Sixers are a league-leading 6-0-0 against the spread, and this one should be a dogfight in which Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid and Boston’s Jayson Tatum try to outperform each other to gain ground in the MVP candidate markets. In addition, Philadelphia’s Tyrese Maxey can be expected to be judged based upon how he handles the defense of Jrue Holiday. Maxey is the runaway leader for the NBA’s Most Improved Player award at this point, but it is early. Still, the guy has increased his scoring average from 20.3 points per game to 25.5, and his assists have more than doubled from 3.5 to 7.3. This one looks like a final-possession game. The 2½-point cushion for the home team seems a point or two too large.
The Pick: Philadelphia + 2 ½ (-115)
Leg-2 Parlay Pick: Utah at Indiana over 244½
The Pacers have been absolutely crushing the overs, especially when they gave coach Rick Carlisle his 900th career victory on Monday night by dropping 152 points on the San Antonio Spurs in a game that went over by 25 points. Both teams have a bevy of offensive-minded players who are having strong seasons, most notably Tyrese Haliburton of the Pacers and Lauri Markkanen of the Jazz. We believe this one will resemble a track meet.
The Pick: Jazz-Pacers over 244 ½ (-110)
Leg-3 Parlay Pick: Brooklyn -4½ vs. Los Angeles Clippers
This is James Harden’s alumni game, and while the Clippers most certainly have the better starting five, there is a learning curve that goes along with incorporating a newcomer prone to dribbling the ball enough times to validate a Boban Marjanovic commercial script. Also, Mikal Bridges and Cam Thomas are giving the Nets a very capable 1-2 offensive punch that should keep both in the league’s Most Improved Player race throughout the season, especially if the Nets can be a top-six team in the East. The line of 4½ seems two to three points too high. Brooklyn tends to take games down to the final minute.
The Pick: Brooklyn +4 ½ vs. L.A. Clippers (-110)
Leg-4 Parlay Pick: Oklahoma City +2½ vs. Cleveland
This is a strange line because Cleveland has been underperforming and Oklahoma City was everyone’s gambling darling prior to the start of the season. The Cavs are missing several key reserves because of injuries, and the Thunder might be getting undervalued because of their 2-3 home record. We expect big stat lines from Cleveland’s Darius Garland and Evan Mobley, but Oklahoma City’s Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Chet Holmgren should be able to match them, and the Thunder’s Lu Dort and Josh Giddey are both due for breakout shooting/scoring games. This one should probably be a pick’em.
The Pick: Oklahoma City +2½ vs. Cleveland (-110)
Putting those four game picks together produces a parlay card with +1200 odds, meaning a $10 wager would pay $130.08. Good luck!
