On Sunday we wrap up the 78th NBA regular season and on this occasion the powers to be have gifted us a massive 15-game slate with some very big games coming our way. I’m hoping to make the most out of this with my NBA Mega Parlay. A total of 3 teams made it into my bet, continue reading below to see them.

We will have predictions for every single game played on Sunday, simply head over to our NBA picks page to see them.

Now let’s dive into my bet!

CHI Bulls +14.5 (-108)

PHX Suns ML (+110)

LA Lakers ML (+142)

Parlay odds: +879

CHI Bulls +15.5 over NY Knicks (-108)

Sunday’s game at Madison Square Garden carries very little weight for them, I don’t think we’ll see any of the starters play significant minutes and the oddsmakers agree with that setting the spread to a whopping 15.5 points here. The Bulls reserves can play though, they just beat Washington on Friday 129-127, shooting 49% from the field and 40% from three.

As far as standings go, the Knicks situation still hasn’t been resolved, but one thing is for sure – they cannot finish lower than the 3rd seed. With a win here and a Bucks loss they can move up to 2nd place in the standings, in theory that could land them the Miami Heat in the first round which wouldn’t be ideal. I’m counting on the Knicks to win this game, finishing 2nd instead of 3rd sounds a lot better. But then again, I wouldn’t be shocked if the Bulls reserves pulled off the upset here, they are playing with zero pressure. I’ll take Chicago and the huge spread.

PHX Suns ML over MIN Timberwolves (+110)

Friday’s win kept the Suns hopes of finishing 6th alive, with a win over Minnesota and a Pelicans loss to the Lakers they would jump over New Orleans in the standings and avoid the play-in. That in itself is a motivating factor alone, the Suns have been the more successful team in head-to-head meetings having won 9 of the last 10 and covered in 8 straight.

Minnesota also has everything to play for here, right now they are in a 3-way tie for the top spot in the West, however due to head-to-head tie-breakers they’re 2nd to the OKC Thunder. Phoenix has won both meetings so far this season, both by double-digits — so the Timberwolves could have a tough time figuring this team out.

LA Lakers ML over NO Pelicans (+142)

The Lakers lead the regular season series 2-1, neither of the 3 contests were close. Both LeBron James and Anthony Davis played over 40 minutes in the win over Memphis and had big games, but with their season potentially on the line here I expect them to once again produce at a high level. Finishing 8th is a much better option because it gives you a 2nd chance after a potential loss in the 7 vs 8 play-in match-up.

This Pelicans team has been questioned all year long and for good reason. Consistency is one of the main things they’ve not been able to master just yet, mostly due to injuries. Brandon Ingram is not yet back from his knee issue, they could definitely use a 20+ point per game scorer to help their case here. NOLA is just 1-4 ATS in 5 home games, the Lakers stomped them in the In-Season Tournament Final and now their season could be decided against the same team.
