We cashed the banker last night to start the week right! Let us continue and keep this winning week going. Here is today’s winning Banker and 2 Team parlay.
Miami Heat vs Toronto Raptors
The Toronto Raptors were able to get a 106-100 win over the Atlanta Hawks. The Raptors win over the Hawks was notably with Trae Young being absent. However, we must give the Raptors credit and now they head back home to Toronto to take on the Miami Heat. The Raptors went to triple overtime with the Heat on Saturday night. Tonight, is the rematch of one of the best games of the year.
As of right now, Jimmy Butler and PJ Tucker are game-time decisions. However, I expect them to play this evening. I believe the fatigue would catch up to Toronto last night, but Atlanta was not able to take advantage of it without the engine to their offense. I don’t believe that will be the case tonight with a Miami Heat team that should be motivated to take on their rival.
I believe the fatigue will catch up tonight to Toronto. They play their starters heavy minutes, and this will be their fourth game in five days. While they were able to get past Atlanta, the Hawks do not play the physically grueling style that the Heat play. The Heat will provide a much sterner test tonight. Tonight’s Banker is the Miami Heat + 2.5
Washing Wizards vs Milwaukee Bucks
The Washington Wizards are not doing well in January going 5-9. To further their problems, the Wizards are currently missing their leading scorer Bradley Beal with a sprained left wrist. The Milwaukee Bucks are coming off a 36-point loss at home to the Denver Nuggets. All this should add up to a big Milwaukee Bucks victory, right? Not so fast.
I believe the Washington Wizards have the skills and roster to keep this close. The Wizards have multiple big men and the Bucks right now are struggling down low. After cutting DeMarcus Cousins and with Brook Lopez still out for injury, the Bucks lack size, which was part of their problem against Denver. With Daniel Gafford, Thomas Bryant, and Montrezl Harrell, the Wizards definitely have the size to give the Bucks problems. While I don’t expect the Wizards to get the upset victory, I do think they will stay within the double digits of NBA odds. The first half of the 2 team parlay is the Washington Wizards +1.5.
Denver Nuggets vs Minnesota Timberwolves
The Nuggets have won five games in a row and they have a great matchup against the Timberwolves tonight. This game will go through the post position with both Nikola Jokic and Karl Anthony Towns being the keys to the offense. The difference is at the end of the game, Jokic will have the advantage over Towns. The Nuggets have a great chance to win straight up, but I’ll gladly take the 3.5 points in NBA odds. The second half of the two-team parlay it is the Denver Nuggets +3.5
