NBA Parlay Picks 2/7/2020

Low-Risk NBA Parlay Bet

Parlay Odds: +200
$20 risk: $60.00 payout

This NBA parlay bet focuses on winning your stake back and then some. This parlay is for the bettor who prefers low risk/low yield parlay bets. Remember the saying “slow and steady wins the race?” Well, this parlay bet won’t set the world alight, but it’s your best chance of beating the NJ sportsbooks.

7:00 p.m. EST – Memphis Grizzlies at Philadelphia 76ers (ML: -335)

The 76ers, playing their second game in as many nights, are currently free-falling and now have a matchup with the upstart Grizzlies. Surprisingly, Philly isn’t that bad on the back-end of B2Bs, going 6-2 SU/3-3-2 ATS this season. Luckily, the 76ers get to return home where they are 22-2, compared to 9-19 on the road. Memphis will be down a couple of players because of some trade-deadline moves, and that makes us a little bit nervous about covering the spread. We’ll take Philly just to win this one outright.

7:30 p.m. EST – Atlanta Hawks at Boston Celtics (ML: -500)

Almost every player in this game has some kind of ailment, so it’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out. The Celtics come into this game the winner of five straight games and eight of the last nine. Boston has taken the first two meetings this season, both of which were under double-digits. We believe they can do it again, but we’ll take the safe route and play the Celtics on the moneyline. The Hawks have been known to cover some of these bigger spreads if Trae Young can light it up from the outside.

8:00 p.m. EST – Detroit Pistons at Oklahoma City Thunder (ML: 750)

If the Pistons were already lost without a cause, the recent trade of Andre Drummond will put them somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle. This is a roster that is already missing Blake Griffin, and now Derrick Rose, Markieff Morris, Svi Mykhailiuk are all out for tonight’s game. In usual circumstances, newly-acquired players wouldn’t be in the lineup so quick, but John Henson and Brandon Knight could be thrust into the rotation tonight.

None of this is good news for Detroit, but it certainly is for OKC. While the Thunder haven’t been great at covering huge spreads, this is an opportunity for them to completely wipe the floor with the Pistons.

9:00 p.m. EST – Houston Rockets (ML: -140) at Phoenix Suns

The Rockets debuted their new small-ball lineup last night and beat the Lakers in LA. Now, they’ll be playing their second game in as many nights. Russell Westbrook will sit out the second half of the Rockets’ back-to-back set. In each of the first two matchups this season, the Rockets have been victorious by six and 14 points, respectively.

Houston has not been a good small favorite (-1 to -5), going 2-6 SU/ATS. In this situation, though, we’re going to roll with the Rockets. The Suns have been out on the road a ton, with nine of their last 12 coming away from Phoenix. In fact, this will also be the Suns’ fourth game in six nights, so their internal clocks are all screwed up.

Big-Payout NBA Parlay Bet

Parlay Odds: +1182
$20 risk: $256.49 payout

This recommended NBA parlay bet focuses on maximizing your winnings. This NBA parlay bet is for the bettor who is looking for the big payout from the NJ sportsbooks. The higher odds mean beats but we’re shooting for the stars here! No one ever bragged they won $10 and as such, so this is for the bettor looking for the big parlay win.

7:00 p.m. EST – Dallas Mavericks at Washington Wizards – Under ???

Luka Doncic is still out of the lineup and now Kristaps Porzingis could potentially miss tonight’s game with a broken nose. Not to mention, Seth Curry and JJ Barea are also listed on the wrong side of being questionable. That’s a lot of scoring and ball-handling missing from the Mavs’ lineup.

The Wizards will be missing some players themselves, after Isaiah Thomas and Jordan McRae were both shipped out of town. In addition, Thomas Bryant will miss this game and newly-acquired Shabazz Napier is questionable to suit up.

Admittedly, with such a long list of players’ statuses up in the air, this is a tough game to handicap. However, we do think most of these questionable players will be out and that’ll hurt each offense significantly. We’ll take the under on this one. Statistically, the total could be a bit more inflated because of many points these teams score. But if the injuries take a big chunk of that, we might be able to take advantage of it.

8:00 p.m. EST – Toronto Raptors at Indiana Pacers +1.5 (-110)

This will be the back-end of a home-and-home series, with the Raptors coming back from 19 down on Wednesday night to win. We mention this all the time, but it’s very hard to beat a team twice in these home-and-home matchups. We don’t need to get into the ins and outs of the matchup – it’s just as simple as that.

The Pacers already showed they can hang with the Raptors in their own building; Indy even beat Toronto in the first meeting this season. Now that the matchup is back in their barn, the Pacers can certainly end the Raptors’ franchise-best 12-game winning streak.  

10:00 p.m. EST – Miami Heat (ML: -120) at Sacramento Kings

The Kings had three full days off before tonight’s game, and that hasn’t necessarily been a good thing. Sacramento is 3-9 SU/5-7 ATS on extended rest (2-4 days) this season. The Heat aren’t a great road team and they’ll even be missing Jimmy Butler with a shoulder injury. The 1.5-point spread indicates the Kings can hang tough in this game; after all, they’re 4-2 SU/ATS over the last six games. However, it hasn’t been against the best of competition. We’re going with the Heat in this one, even without their best player.

10:30 p.m. EST – Portland Trail Blazers +8.5 (-110) at Utah Jazz

The Trail Blazers got a win at home against the Spurs last night. Tonight, they’ll take on a Jazz team that is on a five-game losing streak. Portland has played well against Utah this season, winning a game by 17 points and losing the other by only six. Given how poorly the Jazz have been playing, the 8.5-point deficit seems like a fair number to reach. In fact, the last time the Trail Blazers played a B2B game, it was that 17-point win against the Jazz.
