This past week could not have ended better for us here at Pickswise as we cashed on our +832 odds NBA Mega Parlay last night! Easter Monday brings us another 6-game slate as we go for back-to-back winners. I’ve prepared yet another 3-leg bet, continue reading below to see my selections.

Head over to our NBA picks page for predictions on the side and total for Monday’s games.

Now let’s dive into my bet!

MEM Grizzlies ML (+126)

ATL Hawks ML (+120)

PHX Suns -1 (-108)

Parlay odds: +857

MEM Grizzlies ML over DET Pistons (+126)

It won’t be the prettiest of games to watch, the Grizzlies and Pistons have a combined record of 27-111 SU this season. However, I feel like Memphis is a really solid bet to get the W on the road here. They’ve already beaten the Pistons 126-102 back in early December, in the same building the two teams are playing tonight.

It’s been all Memphis in regular season meetings over the past few seasons. Right now, they are on a 5-game win streak in head-to-head meetings, plus they’ve won 8 of the last 10, while also covering 8 times during that impressive run. At Little Ceasars Arena they’ve covered the spread 8 times in their last 9 visits too. Add to that the fact that Cade Cunningham is questionable to play, Memphis has all the necessary tools to pull off the upset here.

ATL Hawks ML over CHI Bulls (+120)

Tonight’s game between the Bulls and Hawks is a big one for both teams as it could very well determine who gets the 9th seed in the Eastern Conference. Chicago has a 1.5 game lead at the moment, but the Hawks have a game in hand so a win tonight would be huge for them. Prior to this most recent run, Atlanta had all but given up on the idea of home court advantage in the play-in tournament.

Speaking of that run, I’ve been very impressed with what the Hawks have done over the past 10 days or so. They beat the Celtics twice during that stretch, only to lose to the Milwaukee Bucks in their latest outing at home. Chicago comes off a win at Minnesota last night, but that was only their 3rd win in 7 games. Playing on a 2nd night of a back-to-back will not be ideal here, in 12 games this season the Bulls are 6-6 SU in this scenario. Atlanta has scored at least 120 points in 4 of their last 5 games, if they can do so here it’s almost certainly a win in my book.

PHX Suns -1 over NO Pelicans (-108)

And to cap things off I have the Suns winning on the road against the New Orleans Pelicans. It won’t be an easy task, however did already do it once this season when they beat them 123-109 back in late January. Phoenix is 5-2 SU/ATS in the last 7 meetings and 4-2 ATS/SU over their last 6 games overall.

The injury to Brandon Ingram could not have happened at the worst time for the Pelicans. They’ve dropped 2 of their last 3 games and just got overtaken by the Dallas Mavericks for the 5th seed. Those 3 latest outings have showed us that this team isn’t going far without their 2nd leading scorer Ingram. They’ve averaged just 103.6 points per game during that stretch, well below their season average of 115.2 per game. I don’t think without Ingram they can hang with the Suns for long here.
