NBA Betting Picks for 11/26/21 Banker and Parlay

By @SpreadAstaire

The players are rested. The fans have feasted. Let’s jump into a jam-packed Friday night in the NBA and look for a winning Banker and 2-team parlay.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Denver Nuggets

Milwaukee Bucks are just coming off a home stand where they went 5-0. In their most recent outing Wednesday night, Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped 33 points in a 21-point victory over the Detroit Pistons. The Bucks are 7-0 when Giannis plays with Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday. Bobby Portis has become a crucial player to the Bucks success. Portis is averaging 16 points while shooting an astounding 46% from three-point range.

The Denver Nuggets have been racked by injuries. The most recent casualty was guard PJ Dozier, who tore his ACL on Tuesday during Denver’s loss against the Trailblazers. Denver cannot stay healthy, and the Nuggets are also missing Michael Porter Jr, Jamal Murray, and Bones Hyland. Nikola Jokic missed the past three games but could be back tonight after suffering a sprained right wrist. Jeff Green has led the Nuggets averaging 21 points per game in Jokic’s absence.

I like Milwaukee here to get it done against the Nuggets team that has been fighting valiantly while being shorthanded but appears to be running out of steam. The Nuggets can still compete against most teams with Jokic the lineup, but the Bucks at full strength of the best team in the NBA. At full strength the Bucks roster is too much for the Nuggets too handle. Take the Bucks to continue their winning streak on Friday night in Denver.

2-Team Parlay

Phoenix Suns vs New York Knicks

You might be a sensing a theme today as I like a bunch of short road favorites that are significantly more talented. The Suns are coming off an NBA Finals appearance and are finally returning to form. They are 15-3 on the season. The Suns are everything the Knicks want to be…just a little better. They played great defense at the point-of-attack, have long wings that can switch. In general, the Suns make it very hard for opposing teams to score. Although it is a long flight from Phoenix, I do believe the Suns will be up for this game and be able to get the victory in New York. The first half of the two-team parlay will be the Phoenix Suns -3.5.

Atlanta Hawks vs Memphis Grizzlies

The Hawks are coming off a big win in San Antonio and head to Memphis to take on the inconsistent Grizzlies. The Grizzlies fell at home on Wednesday night to the Toronto Raptors and I think they will meet a similar fate against another Eastern Conference opponent. Like the Raptors, the Hawks can take advantage of having bigger more athletic wings to attack the Grizzlies in the frontcourt. Ja Morant will have to play excellent basketball to keep pace with Trae Young. This Friday night is for the Road Warriors! We will take the Atlanta Hawks to beat the Memphis Grizzlies.
