You can't win if you don't bet. That's a fact. I've been betting games for over 20 years and writing about it for the past 10. If there's a game, there's an angle. We just have to find it.

We gotta have a Mega Parlay for Monday. It just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t. What I like to do for my NBA parlays is go right to the NBA predictions page of the PicksWise website. Our experts usually have an opinion on the side and total of every NBA game. They even mark it with 1-3 star rating so you know just how strongly they feel about it. All you have to do is find a few you like and then throw them together. How hard is that?

Don’t just read about this parlay though. You’d be crazy to do that! Our team has put together picks on the side and total of all the games on the NBA slate today/tonight. You can also follow me on Twitter for any other bets I might throw out throughout the day.

Bulls vs Celtics under 217.5 (-110)

Portland Trail Blazers +6.5 (-110)

Toronto Raptors +6.5 (-110)

Los Angeles Clippers -11 (-115)

Parlay Odds: +1240

Bulls vs Celtics under 217.5 (-110)

The first 1 I noticed was the Chicago Bulls vs Boston Celtics total play from Filip Tomic. Filip is money so we have that going for us. He’s slapped a 2-star on the under in this game and after reading why, I’m in. First off the pace is off for this one. The Bulls come in running at the 23rd fastest pace in the NBA which is pretty slow. Their also very efficient on defense while the Celtics are the exact opposite of efficient on offense. Slow pace on top of inefficient offense means we might be watching an under. This should kick-start our parlay.

Portland Trail Blazers +6.5 (-110)

I went right back to Filip for this 1 as he’s on the Portland Trail Blazers tonight. This one is yet another 2-star rated play so we’re safe there. We still don’t know it Joel Embiid is playing or not but even if he is, the Blazers should cover here. Portland has now won 3 straight games and Damian Lillard has not even been playing well. Lillard is way too good to keep playing like this and when he turns it around, the Blazers will roll. They have a great track record against the 76ers covering in 6 of the last 7 meetings between the 2 teams. This game should keep our parlay moving.

Toronto Raptors +6.5 (-110)

Sticking with the theme of Filip Tomic bets, I sniffed out the Toronto Raptors at +6.5. Why not? Filip rated it at 2-stars so there’s that plus, they’ve won 3 straight games. Defense is key with this bunch as they are allowing under 100 points per game. That’s tough to do in today’s NBA. Toronto will need that defense as the Knicks are 2nd in the NBA in scoring so far this season. Still, it’s tough to imagine New York will have the same type of success against a top defensive unit like the Raptors. Filip rated this 2-stars and I agree that the Raptors should be able to keep this within 7 points. I think this is a sneaky move that will keep the parlay alive.

Los Angeles Clippers -11 (-115)

The final play of the parlay is coming from our guy Germantas Kneita. Germantas slapped a 2-star on this 1 and after reading his reasoning, I’m in. Both of these teams are 1-trick ponies on offense with a single guy leading the teams in scoring every night. Paul George is handling the load for the Clippers while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is doing it for the Thunder. The thing is, Eric Bledsoe will be around to harass Gilgeous-Alexander which hurts the Thunder big time. Bledsoe big-boyed SGA last season holding him to an average of 14.5 points in two contests. If that happens again tonight, the Thunder will be in deep trouble. This one should bring our parlay home in style!
