NBA Betting Picks for 1/20/22 Banker and Parlay

By @SpreadAstaire

We have a three-game slate in the NBA tonight. But that’s plenty of action for us to find to the winning Banker and 2-team parlay.

Phoenix Suns vs Dallas Mavericks

Phoenix Suns are on fire right now and are looking to have an undefeated road trip. The Suns are 4-0 on this trip and 17-4 on the road this year. Phoenix is 7-1 in the last eight games. Tonight, they face a team that is also playing well.

Dallas Mavericks have won 10 of their last 11 games and four in a row. The Mavericks have won six straight at home and are 3-0 on their current homestand. Dallas has always been known for shooting but this calendar year, they have had the best net defensive rating in the league at 98.5. It should be an impressive battle when these two teams faced off.

Phoenix has had Dallas number. Phoenix has won their last eight games against the Mavericks. I believe this will be the case again tonight. Phoenix is the hottest team in the league right now and they won their past three games by an average of 19.7 points. Tonight’s Banker is the Phoenix Suns -2.5.

Banker: Phoenix Suns -2.5 at -110 (1.91) at BetUS

2-Team Parlay

New Orleans Pelicans vs New York Knicks

The New Orleans Pelicans lost 104-92 to the Boston Celtics after they were ahead by 18 points in the first half. The New York Knicks also had a disappointing game on Monday, and they then followed that up with a loss last evening. The loss to the Timberwolves was especially discouraging because they were ahead by five points with less than four minutes to play. They ended up losing to the Timberwolves 112-110.

The Pelicans are one of the worst road teams in the league, at 6-17 on the year on the road. Why the Pelicans can be an enticing team to back at home, I am particularly hesitant to play them on the road, and tonight this is the case once again. The overnight Market had this line at -2.5 which was a steal if you got it, but even at – 4 there still value on the New York Knicks. I like the Knicks at home to get the job done tonight. The first half of our 2-team parlay is a New York Knicks – 4.

Golden State Warriors vs Indiana Pacers

Pacers are coming up in impressive win in Los Angeles last night over the Lakers. Domantas Sabonis played fantastic basketball. Sabonis had a triple-double with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Caris LeVert was key to the win by scoring 22 points in the fourth quarter alone. Sabonis play and Levert’s fourth-quarter outburst allowed them to surmount a 15-point deficit to get the victory.

Tonight, they face a tougher test than beating the mediocre Lakers. They will have to travel to Golden State to take on one of the Western Conference’s best, the Golden State Warriors. Although Draymond Green is out for the Warriors, Klay Thompson is back. Steph Curry has his backcourt running mate with him on the court. Klay Thompson has energized the crowd at the Chase Center, as he is one of the team’s most popular and beloved figures.

I think the fatigue gets to the Pacers tonight after they used so much energy to grab the win and then had to travel to San Francisco last night. When the Warriors play at home it’s a celebration of Curry and Thompson, and I believe they will be eager to pour it on and get the crowd energized. The second half of the two-team parlay is the Golden State Warriors – 11.5.
