Philadelphia 76ers ML (-480)

The 76ers haven’t look great recently but that happens when you play the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets. They got throttled by the Nuggets last time out but they made a game out of it after being down 22 at the end of the first quarter. The Cavaliers on the other hand, have lost four of their last five games. In the last one, they got dragged by 39 points to the Utah Jazz. They should play with pride tonight but they just don’t have the talent for this game. The 76ers should get back on track here to start our parlay.

Charlotte Hornets team total Over 27.5 *First Quarter (-118)

The Charlotte Hornets are averaging 33.7 points in the first quarter of their last three games which is second best in the NBA in that span. What’s most impressive is, included in that run was a date with the Phoenix Suns. The Suns have the 5th best defense in basketball and play pretty slow so hanging points on them is tough. Just last Friday they put a 40-burger on the Heat in the first quarter so they should get home on this one. The Nets have given up an average of 31.3 points in the first quarter of their last three games. This is great for a parlay.

Denver Nuggets ML (-126)

This stop in the parlay is one that feels a little like stealing. The Nuggets look like they are a legit contender with Aaron Gordon. They absolutely shut down the 76ers last time out after hanging 44 points on them in the first quarter and never looking back. This is a team has the looks of one that will only get better down the stretch. Meanwhile, the Clippers are all banged up at the moment. No Paul George, Rajon Rondo or Serge Ibaka for this one. They lost to the Orlando Magic last time out and they should lose this game as well.

Warriors/Heat Under 219 (-110)

The Miami Heat have been a defensive juggernaut recently ranking third in defensive efficiency over the last three games. In their last two games, they’ve held two good teams in the Pacers and Knicks to under 90 points. One factor that has contributed is the ultra slow pace as they are second slowest in the NBA in the last three games. On the other side, the Warriors have been atrocious defensively ranking dead last in the association. The lack of pace and inefficiency of the Heat offense should mitigate that and leave this one a little short of the number. Out parlay should still be intact when this one is over.

San Antonio Spurs team total Over 27.5 *First Quarter (-118)

The last stop in our parlay is in San Antonio where the Spurs will be hosting the Atlanta Hawks. The Spurs have stepped up their scoring early in games as they are averaging 32.3 points in the first frame over their last three. They’ve hit this number in four of their last five games going over 30 in each of their last three. The Hawks are ripe for a beating as they are second worst in the NBA in defensive efficiency over their last three. They’ve allowed four of their last five opponents to get over this number so the Spurs are in a good spot here.
