A 5-game slate comes our way this Saturday in the NBA, with the highlight of the night being in Los Angeles where we have a re-match of last season’s Western Conference finals between the Lakers and Nuggets. I have included this game in tonight’s NBA mega parlay; find out who else made the cut below.

Now let’s dive into my bet!

Trail Blazers ML (+118)

Nuggets vs Lakers Under 229.5 (-110)

Rockets ML (+360)

Parlay odds: +1814

Trail Blazers ML over Grizzlies (+118)

These 2 teams just played each other last night and the Blazers thoroughly dominated 122-92 to end a 9-game losing streak. It wasn’t the most exciting of games to watch, as neither team has anything left to play for this season — but the level of talent is slightly higher on the Blazers team mainly due to players available. Jerami Grant and Anfernee Simons are actually solid NBA players who can dominate this matchup if they want to.

Meanwhile, the Grizzlies have been the hardest hit team with injuries this season and they are pretty much playing G-League and 10-day players at this moment. The season cannot finish soon enough for this team. The Grizz are 2-8 SU in their last 10 games and have won just twice in their last 15 overall. Portland has the experience, but also the head-to-head records are in its favor — 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings and 6 straight covers in visits to Memphis. Let’s go for back-to-back Portland wins.

Nuggets vs Lakers Under 229.5 (-110)

Denver being the underdog has me confused a little bit, so I’m not really sure what to make of that. Jamal Murray is most likely not playing and the Lakers need a win badly. Not sure if they’ll get it, but I am sure they will have a tough time scoring the basketball. The Nuggets are elite on defense, they’ve ranked in the top 10 in defensive rating for most of the season and have now elevated themselves to 6th over the last 10 games or so.

The under has cashed in 14 of 18 Nuggets games; they are 11-19-1 on the O/U in away games, as well. Los Angeles did put up 134 on the Wizards in their last game, but scoring on the Nuggets is a completely different animal. In the 2 meetings this season they have managed just 107 and 106 points, it could be a struggle once again. The under is a perfect 3-0 in the last 3 meetings, so let’s hope the streak continues.

Rockets ML over Suns (+360)

And for a bit of an odds boost I have the Houston Rockets beating the Phoenix Suns as the two teams lock horns for the 2nd time in less than 48 hours. Phoenix has won 2 of the 3 regular season meetings this year, but you never know which Suns team might show up. For a team that a lot of people have contending to win it all, they sure know how to let you down. Bradley Beal has been in and out of the lineup for parts of the season; he has been upgraded to probable on Saturday, which could disrupt the chemistry a bit for a team that’s won 9 straight at home.

Houston has the personnel to beat any team on any given night — it just lacks consistency on the road this season. In head-to-head meetings the Rockets have covered the spread in 4 of the last 5 against Phoenix, plus they are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 against Pacific Division opponents. Their 3-point shooting has fallen off a bit in the last 2 games, but if they can get back to the 15 to16 triples a game range then I think anything is possible. Let’s go with the Rockets as road underdogs.
