We are coming off of a winning Banker yesterday. Let’s keep it going! Time to jump in and find today’s winning Banker and 2 Team Parlay.
Toronto Raptors vs Oklahoma City Thunder
The Toronto Raptors are playing their best basketball of the season and are on a six-game winning streak. Pascal Siakam has been key during the streak, averaging 24 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists per game. Now they take their streak into Oklahoma City, who has already defeated the Raptors once this season, 110-109.
Unfortunately for the Thunder, they will be missing Shai Gilgeous-Alexander tonight. That means more usage for dazzling rookie Josh Giddey, who has adjusted to his role in the Thunder offense quite well. Giddey leads the team in rebounds and assists at 7 and 6 per game. The Thunder have the second-best ATS record in the league at 33-18. I expect that to continue. Tonight OKC is catching 10 points at home against the Raptors. Yes, the Raptors are playing well but the idea that these teams are just going to roll over a Thunder team that has consistently kept games close all season is based on a false premise in my mind. Yes, the Raptors will probably get the win, but the Thunder will cover the NBA odds. Today’s Banker is the Oklahoma City Thunder +10.
2 Team Parlay
Minnesota Timberwolves vs Sacramento Kings
These two teams play last night and will run it back tonight in Sacramento. The Kings started out okay, but then got demolished in the second half and ended up falling 134–114. Yet the Kings will debut their new additions tonight (most likely). The Kings made a huge trade moving Tyrese Haliburton for Damonte Sabonis. This move makes the Kings roster more balanced and while Tyrese Haliburton has the higher upside, Sabonis is a better player to help the team win right now. This is a great opportunity for the Sacramento Kings to get back on track and also get some good vibes in the building with a strong debut from their new All-Star forward. The first half of the two-team parlay is the Sacramento Kings +9.
Golden State Warriors vs Utah Jazz
The Golden State Warriors have won 8 games in a row and are playing excellent basketball right now. The Utah Jazz will once again be without Rudy Gobert, who is the heart and soul of their defense. Without Rudy Gobert in the lineup, the Jazz struggle to get the necessary stops. This will be crucial going against an offensive juggernaut such as the Warriors.. As long as Gobert is not in the lineup, I will continue to fade the Jazz. And there’s nothing wrong with betting on one of the hottest teams in the NBA right now, the Golden State Warriors. The second half of the 2 Team Parlay is the Golden State Warriors ML.
