With the NBA playoffs beginning every team will be sending out the best they have to offer which provides bettors with a more clear picture of what each team will provide each night. No load management, no players taking plays or games off, every team giving it their absolute all for 48 minutes. So here’s a quick two-game parlay for the second day of the NBA playoffs:
LA Lakers vs Portland Trailblazers
Portland snuck into the playoffs through impressive performances in the Bubble and was able to win the play-in game over the Memphis Grizzlies. The Lakers, on the other hand, coasted to the one seed and haven’t played a meaningful basketball game in almost two weeks. With superstars Lebron James and Anthony Davis given the ability to rest for the last two weeks, both of them come out redhot in this game where the Blazers take a step back after an emotionally draining couple of games to sneak into the playoffs. The Lakers flex their muscles as one of the best teams in the NBA and cover the spread.
First Parlay Pick: Lakers -5.5
Orlando Magic vs Milwaukee Bucks
Similar to the Lakers, the Bucks clinched the one seed early on in the bubble and have given MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo plenty of time to get healthy and rest up for the playoff push. The Magic have lost six of their last seven in the bubble and could potentially be missing Aaron Gordon who is averaging 14.4 points and 7.7 rebounds on the year. The Bucks are just too talented of a team and when they are motivated are the best team in the Eastern Conference. As long as the Magic do not overlook a scrappy Magic team, they race to a victory here covering the double-digit spread.
Second Parlay Pick: Bucks -12.5
