We have a massive 12-game night in the NBA today and I have my eyes set on a tasty NBA mega parlay at huge odds. The bet includes a total of 3 teams and is priced at +2179 odds. On Wednesday I was really close to landing a +2414 odds bet after correctly picking the Grizzlies to beat the Bucks, and hopefully luck works in our favor this time around. Let’s dive into tonight’s NBA mega parlay, while you can also see our NBA picks for the rest of Friday’s action.

Pacers -5 (-108)

Spurs ML (+520)

Heat vs Rockets Over 214 (-110)

NBA parlay odds: +2179

Indiana Pacers -5 over Oklahoma City Thunder (-108)

The Thunder have lost 2 games in a row at Philadelphia and at Boston, mainly because of the absence of their superstar Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. SGA has been ruled out here as well due to a quad injury, which is a devastating blow for a team aiming to finish top of the standings in the West. Indiana also won the first meeting 121-111 back in mid-March and they’ve had the upper hand in head-to-head meetings with 7 wins in the last 9 played.

We’ve seen the Thunder struggle against taller teams this year, and with SGA declared out and Jalen Williams questionable with an ankle injury, I’m not sure how I feel about their chances against Indy. The Pacers are 4-1 in the last 5 home games and have covered in 4 of 5 against West teams. Tyrese Haliburton is playing well at the moment, I’ll take the home team to cover here.

San Antonio Spurs ML over New Orleans Pelicans (+520)

We’re going to see a lot of big-time upsets over these final 6 or 7 games of the regular season. Just look at the Milwaukee Bucks losing to teams like the Wizards and Grizzlies. I’ve picked out the San Antonio Spurs to take down the New Orleans Pelicans tonight, as they head into Smoothie King Center as 11.5-point underdogs.

I know some people will be turned off by this pick and that’s completely normal due to the difference in talent. However, I’m here to tell you that you shouldn’t discount the Spurs so easily. They have nothing to lose here, they’re in better form than the Pels with 3 wins in 5 games, and they lost the last meeting by just a single point. New Orleans has been hit hard by the injury bug, as they have just 1 win in 5 games and are currently on a 3-game losing streak. Brandon Ingram is out with an injury and without him the offense just isn’t the same. Take the Spurs to upset.

Miami Heat vs Houston Rockets Over 214 (-110)

The defense of the Houston Rockets just hasn’t been the same ever since that 11-game win streak came to an end, and in their last 3 defeats to Golden State, Minnesota and Dallas, the young Rockets have allowed an average of 123.7 points per game which is the 2nd-highest mark in the league. As a result, the over has cashed 9 times in their last 11 games, including 7 of their last 8 at home.

With both teams playing on a 2nd night of a back-to-back and coming off defeats, this is pretty much anyone’s game. I’d give a slight edge to Miami, but I’m more in favor of backing the points. The first meeting ended with 233 points, we’re seeing an average of 219.5 points per game in the last 10 head-to-head. It’s also worth mentioning the over has cashed in 4 of the last 5 meetings at the Toyota Center. Rockets are only 20th in defensive efficiency in the last 10 games. I’m taking the over.
