I was once again just 1 leg away from cashing on my +1814 odds NBA Mega Parlay last night, I’m hoping luck is on my side with Sunday’s bet. Both ABC and ESPN have double-headers for us today in what will be an 8-game slate, continue reading below to see which teams I’ve included in my bet.

Also, visit our NBA picks page for predictions on the side and total for Sunday’s 8-game slate.

Now let’s dive into my bet!

CHA Hornets ML (+265)

CLE Cavaliers -5 (-110)

Over 244.5 Points in Pacers vs Spurs (-110)

Parlay odds: +1230

CHA Hornets ML over TOR Raptors (+265)

With the 10th spot in the East being 4 games away, the Raptors are pretty much done as far as a play-in tournament spot is concerned. It has been a season to forget for the Raptors, they just lost Scottie Barnes to a hand injury which will keep him out of the line-up indefinitely. Even with him they went just 6-13 SU over their last 19 games and just 1-5 SU in their last 6 at home. This team would be better off tanking the rest of the season in an attempt to get a higher draft pick next year. In games played at the Scotiabank Arena they’ve covered just 13 times in 30 games.

With neither side having much to play for here, I’m actually leaning towards Charlotte. Over the last 12 meetings they’ve covered the spread a total of 8 times. Plus, Miles Bridges is healthy and playing, he’s averaged 33.5 points per game in 2 meetings vs Toronto. I think he will once again stuff the stat sheet here and lead the Hornets to an upset victory. Take Charlotte on the Money Line.

CLE Cavaliers -5 over NY Knicks (-110)

The Knicks fall-off has been well documented, they just aren’t the same team without Julius Randle and OG Anunoby, There’s still no timetable set for either of them returning, this team is in danger of dropping into the play-in tournament if they don’t turn things around. I can’t see that happening tonight as they take on the Cavaliers, a team that’s looking for revenge after the Knicks eliminated them from the postseason last year.

The Cavs are 3-1 SU in their last 4 games and 13-4 SU in their last 17 overall. Winning at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse has been a tough task for any team in the NBA this season, Cleveland has won 11 of their last 13 games there. Donovan Mitchell didn’t play against Detroit on Friday, but the team still delivered a win showing that they are still dangerous even if their best player is out. With New York managing just 92 and 99 points in their last 2 games, I’m rolling with the Cavaliers here.

Over 244.5 Points in Pacers vs Spurs (-110)

And finally, to close things out I have the Pacers and Spurs going over the total in their 2nd and final meeting of the regular season. By all accounts this bet should be a no-brainer as neither team puts any emphasis whatsoever on the defensive end. The first time they met this season we saw the Pacers put up 152 points in a 41 point victory. That type of blowout victory most likely won’t happen again tonight, but I’m still expecting the two teams to combine for at least 245 points here.

Indiana has been among the 3 best offenses in the NBA for most of the season, right now only the Boston Celtics are posting higher efficiency numbers on that end of the floor. They also play the 2nd fastest pace averaging 102.6 possessions per game. San Antonio is just a spot below them at 102.2 per game. The two teams are also neck and neck when it comes to defense, but on the other side of the table. San Antonio allows 117.5 points per 100 possessions, the Pacers are at 118.9 which ranks the two teams 24th and 26th in defensive rating respectively. The over has cashed in 7 of the last 10 meetings, I’m backing it once again here.
