It’s getting pretty frustrating to go 1-1 with my NBA Parlay Picks. The Sacramento Kings went on the road and took care of business against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night. De’Aaron Fox came up big in the closing minutes, but the Kings had taken a lead into the fourth quarter. However, the Cleveland Cavaliers failed to cover the number against the Philadelphia 76ers. Joel Embiid had a monster performance with 36 points and 18 rebounds, as the Cavs had no answer for Philly’s big man. Hopefully, I can break my losing streak this weekend with eight games to choose from on the schedule.

Payout: $100 to win $264
The Toronto Raptors are three games under .500 with 13 games left to play. They are likely going to take part in the Play-In Tournament, and they have a distinct home court advantage. Toronto is 21-13 at home, so the Raptors know that every game matters in their endeavor to make the playoffs proper.
We saw Toronto outplay the best team in the west at home on Wednesday night as Fred VanVleet dropped 36 points in a 15-point win over Denver. The Raptors set a franchise record with 49 points in the first quarter, and they never looked back from that point forward.
Toronto has now won five straight home games, and it’s been more than a month since the Raptors lost at home. That doesn’t bode well for a Minnesota team that is trying to play its way into the playoffs too. The Timberwolves are currently 35-35, but they are three games under .500 away from home.
Karl-Anthony Towns is still out, and Austin Rivers is likely to miss this game too because of injury. Rudy Gobert has not been the difference maker that Minnesota was hoping for when the T-Wolves gave up an enormous haul to land him, so a lot has fallen on the young shoulders of Anthony Edwards. He is playing well, but he struggled from the floor in his previous game against Toronto, and that’s a good sign for the Raptors here.
Utah has been one of the most surprising teams of the season. It looked like the Jazz were going to be one of the worst teams in the NBA after trading away Gobert and Donovan Mitchell for a bevy of draft picks, but they have flirted with .500 all year and are currently just a half game behind the Los Angeles Lakers for a spot in the play-in tournament. Lauri Markkanen has been phenomenal and is likely to win All-NBA honors with 25.4 PPG and 8.5 RPG, and rookie center Walker Kessler is already making a name for himself.
The Jazz are solid at home with a 20-13 record in Salt Lake City. The Boston Celtics have been a very good team on the road too with a 22-13 mark away from Beantown, but they are struggling with a 5-5 record over their last 10 games. They only have a couple convincing wins over the last month and change as Marcus Smart and Grant Williams are not the same players they were in last season’s run to the NBA Finals.
