Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports -- just about any and all you can think of! -- and coaching tennis in Atlanta, GA. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

We are tipping off the week with a nine-game slate in the NBA, which includes a double-header on ESPN. The nightcap featuring the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles rounds out our mega parlay, joined by teams such as the Philadelphia 76ers and Memphis Grizzlies. Other squads taking the court on Monday are the Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Phoenix Suns, and Milwaukee Bucks.

Here is our best four-team parlay option for today’s slate.

76ers -7.5 (-110)

Spurs ML (-115)

Grizzlies ML (+250)

Lakers +5.5 (-110)

Parlay odds: +2241

For this parlay we mix in one favorite against the spread, one underdog and the points, and two money line winners (one favorite and one underdog). Let’s break down each of the four legs one by one.



Philadelphia 76ers -7.5 over Golden State Warriors (-110)

Even a 47-point performance from Stephen Curry couldn’t help the Warriors against the Celtics, as Golden State fell 119-114 on Saturday night. Curry drained 11 three-pointers to continue his incredible scoring binge. Unfortunately for the Dubs, they may not have the services of their star player on Monday. The former Davidson standout twisted an ankle near the end of the game against Boston and is questionable for this one. Given Curry’s history of ankle issues, there is no way Golden State wants to rush him back into action. If the Warriors don’t have the advantage on the perimeter then they will be in serious trouble, because they obviously don’t have the edge down low. Joel Embiid has also been spectacular in the month of April, averaging 30.1 points per game and leading the Sixers to a 6-1 record this month. In the latest win against the Clippers last Friday, Embiid delivered with 36 points and 14 rebounds. He should once again have the size advantage down low against the Warriors, who aren’t the toughest team on the inside.

San Antonio Spurs ML over Indiana Pacers (-115)

The Spurs are slowly building momentum again. They upset Phoenix 111-85 this past Saturday, which marked their third win in the last five games. They did so without their best player, DeMar DeRozan, who was rested. In his absence, Rudy Gay stepped up and led them in scoring with 19 points off the bench; a total of six Spurs scored in double-figures. San Antonio plays a lot better on the road than at home; it is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games. Indiana will be playing the second game of a back-to-back situation after losing at Atlanta 129-117 on Sunday. The Pacers have given up at least 124 points in four of their last five contests. Bakers Life Fieldhouse may not be much of a help; they are 9-16 SU in 2020-21 and 7-18 ATS.

Memphis Grizzlies ML over Denver Nuggets (+250)

Memphis has won back-to-back road games, most recently against Milwaukee. Those efforts are especially impressive given that they are missing three rotation players (Brandon Clarke, De’Anthony Melton, and Justise Winslow). Rookies Desmond Bane and Xavier Tillman scored a combined 31 points off the bench at the Bucks’ expense. There is a lot to like about Memphis right now, but the same cannot be said of the Nuggets. They suffered a big blow last week with Jamal Murray going down for the rest of the season due to a torn ACL. That launched Monte Morris into the starting lineup, but he is questionable for this one. Guard options get really thin really fast for the Nuggets after that.

JA Morant Playing Against Cavs

Los Angeles Lakers +5.5 over Utah Jazz (-110)

These teams just met a few days and Utah fell in overtime at L.A. It was actually a pretty good effort given the Jazz were missing three starters. With reserves forced to start, the bench got very thin though and even with the extra time only 15 of their 115 points came from subs. Leading scorer Donovan Mitchell is still out, so the Lakers will have a good chance to pick up another win—or at least to cover 5.5 points. With LeBron James and Anthony Davis sidelined, the core is Andre Drummond, Dennis Schroeder, and Kyle Kuzma. Drummond just had his best game as a Laker with 27 points. It was made easier without Gobert around, but he is accomplished enough that we can still expect him to perform even with Utah’s big man on the floor.
