NBA Parlay for Monday December 20th, 2021

As a COVID surge sweeps across the country, the NBA hasn’t been spared as there were three postponements last night and at least one more today. While time will tell just how many more there will be, let’s take a closer look at the board as it stands today and see where the value is.

Leg #1. Thunder +9 | -110 at DK Sportsbook

These two last played just three weeks ago in what was one of the most lopsided games in NBA history. 11-point favorites in that one, the Grizzlies went on to win 152-78 and shot 60%+ from the field.

In the six games since, the Thunder have responded relatively well, covering four by an average of 9 points. Coming into this one as one of the healthiest teams in the league tonight, I like for the Thunder to keep this one close tonight in Memphis.

Leg #2. Hornets +12| -115 at DK Sportsbook

After being one of the first teams hit hard by COVID protocols, the Hornets are starting to get healthy and come into tonight with just one player (Cody Martin) out of the lineup. Having just played last night, a 106-137 loss in Phoenix, the Hornets don’t have to wait long to shake off shooting just 36% from the field.

For the home Jazz, an eight-game win streak has been followed up by losing their last two as they come into this one with as many as five players potentially out. I like for this young Hornets team to bounce back well in this one stay within the +12.

Leg #3. Spurs +4.5 | -110 at DK Sportsbook

Things have gone from bad to worse for the Clippers on the injury front, as they’re already dealing with the absence of Kawhi Leonard. AFter losing Paul George last week to an elbow injury, Marcus Morris and Serge Ibaka are now dealing with COVID protocols.

For the Spurs, one of the rockiest starts in the Greg Popovich era hasn’t been from a lack of effort. Covering six of their last 10, I like for the Spurs to cover again in this one and keep it close against an ailing Clippers team.
