The NBA has a light night on Saturday, November 19th, as we have five games scheduled for action.
NBA Parlay Leg #1: Kawhi Leonard Under 15.5 Points (-120)
Kawhi Leonard returned to the court on Thursday and did not look very good offensively as he scored just six points in 25 minutes against the Detroit Pistons. He is going up against his former team, San Antonio Spurs, who know all about Leonard's strengths and weaknesses as a player.
Leonard is shooting a mere 11.1 percent from the three-point line and has failed to reach 15 points in any of his first three games in the regular season thus far. This feels like too high of a number to aim for, so go with the under as one of the legs on this parlay.
NBA Parlay Leg #2: Damian Lillard Over 25.5 Points (-120)
Damian Lillard is an elite scorer, coming in fourth in the NBA with 27.6 points per game this season. He has solid shooting splits as he is shooting 44.3 percent from the floor, 36.4 percent from three-point range, and 87.4 percent from the free-throw line. He should dominate against Utah Jazz who do not possess talented guard play to stop Lillard from getting to his spot on the floor to make baskets.
NBA Parlay Leg #3: Joel Embiid Under 50.5 Points, Assists, & Rebounds (-120)
Joel Embiid is one of the top players in the entire NBA but his supporting cast does not inspire confidence for Saturday's game against Minnesota Timberwolves as point guard James Harden and shooting guard Tyrese Maxey are both going to miss this game with injuries. Embiid was able to hit 51 last night against the Milwaukee Bucks (32 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists) but it is difficult to foresee Embiid passing the ball as well for the upcoming game.
Embiid will also be defended down low by one of the best defenders in the NBA in center, going by the name Rudy Gobert. Gobert is leading the entire NBA with 12.5 rebounds, so that should lower Embiid's total rebounding opportunities in this game. Go with the under as it seems to be a better bet.
