We’ve got a tidy five-game NBA slate for Saturday, and it’s worth boosting the excitement for these contests with a parlay. This time we’re going with a four-teamer that pays at just over 12/1 with DraftKings. Make sure you check out our picks on the side and total for every NBA matchup today, but for now, let’s break down each of the selections.

Phoenix Suns ML (-106)

Indiana Pacers ML (-121)

New York Knicks ML (-109)

Utah Jazz -6 (-110)

Parlay odds: +1209

Let’s break down each of these four legs one by one.

Phoenix Suns ML (-106)

Phoenix has looked tremendous lately, winning each of their last four games including successes against Milwaukee and Boston. Today poses a tough test in the form of Philadelphia, but the 76ers haven’t been all that convincing on the road. In fact, they’ve won just seven of their 13 games outside of Philly, and this trip to Phoenix will likely prove difficult. For starters, I expect Deandre Ayton to have some success in slowing down Joel Embiid, particularly in the rebounding department. Ayton ranks in the top five for offensive rebounds per game and him limiting Embiid will prove crucial to the Suns’ chances of success. Further, Devin Booker has been lighting it up for Phoenix with back-to-back 30+ games and he should be tricky for the 76ers to slow down. All things considered, I like the Suns to win this one and get our parlay off to a strong start.

Indiana Pacers ML (-121)

Indiana finally snapped their four-game losing streak with victory over Detroit on Thursday, but even that is nothing to get too excited about. However, I think they’ve got a great shot at following that up with success in Atlanta. The Hawks just got crushed by the Spurs last night, where they trailed by as many as 27 points in the fourth quarter, and I expect that to have a tough mental impact on this team. Meanwhile, Malcolm Brogdon and Myles Turner have been rock-solid for the Pacers, and the dominance of Domantas Sabonis in scoring and rebounding should be too much for Atlanta to handle.

New York Knicks ML (-109)

New York earned a comfortable win over Washington last night and this team is really starting to build some momentum. At first I wasn’t sure about their defensive mindset, but Tom Thibodeau has really made it work and I think they have all the tools to frustrate Houston. Crucially, as a result of that easy victory over the Wizards, their starters didn’t have to play crazy minutes so fatigue shouldn’t be much of an issue. For the Rockets, however, Victor Oladipo got injured last night against the Heat, while John Wall is questionable. Christian Wood has already been confirmed out. That is a lot of firepower that could be missing for Houston, and I’m not sure how they’ll be able to penetrate the Knicks’ rigid defense.

Utah Jazz -6 (-110)

Miami is finally starting to look like the team that made last season’s NBA Finals after securing their fourth win in a row on Thursday, but I can’t see how they find a way past this Utah team. Quite simply, the Jazz are looking phenomenal right now. It isn’t just the fact that they’ve won 16 of their last 17 games, but the manner in which they’ve been winning. Their smooth 129-115 victory over Milwaukee proved they can drop a big performance on anybody, and the amount of squad depth they have is another reason why they don’t seem to have any drop-off games in this rigorous schedule. The Heat will like their chances after this recent winning streak, but they have been so inconsistent that keeping this one close seems beyond them right now. Roll with Utah to bring this parlay home.
