NBA Friday three-team mega parlay (+1411 odds): Thunder pull stunner
The NBA has a nice big slate on Black Friday, with some really interesting games. What better way to celebrate than by going for a big payday? That’s right; we’re back with another mega parlay, NBA edition. We’re going big and bold again, so let’s not waste any more time.
Minnesota Timberwolves ML (+115)
Oklahoma City Thunder ML (+270)
Memphis Grizzlies -1 (-110)
Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.
Minnesota Timberwolves ML (+115) over Charlotte Hornets
Why not start this parlay off with a money line ‘dog. We’ve got an even bigger one coming next. But for now, we’ll start with the Timberwolves. Minnesota is officially on fire, as they enter this one off five straight wins. They’ve won each of those five games by double digits, and even had a 43-point blowout of Memphis mixed in there. On the other side, Charlotte’s supposedly high-flying offense has been highly mediocre lately.
The Hornets’ 12-8 record looks decent, but they’ve been winning a ton of games by narrow margins which isn’t sustainable. They haven’t won a game by more than 10 points since all the way back on October 31st. Despite being 12-8 they have a negative point differential on the year, which tells you everything you need to know. They’re due for some serious regression.
Oklahoma City Thunder ML (+270) over Washington Wizards
To give us the odds to truly make this a mega parlay, we’ve got the Thunder. Oklahoma City hasn’t been the doormat that many expected so far, and once again they’re showing more fight than was anticipated. They even put together a four-game win streak not too long ago. OKC has now lost four in a row, but that’s because they’ve played an absolutely brutal schedule. Those four losses were against the Jazz, at the Hawks, at the Celtics and at the Bucks.
Talk about a gauntlet. Last time out they only lost to Utah by six, and will now be getting a big step down in competition here. Washington got off to a surprisingly hot start, but they’re starting to fade. The Wizards have lost four of their past five games, including an ugly 25-point loss to the lowly Pelicans in their most recent game.
Memphis Grizzlies -1 (-110) over Atlanta Hawks
To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Grizzlies as the most modest of favorites. I was skeptical of this Hawks team coming into the year, and they’ve been a disappointment so far. They’ve strung together some wins recently, but only because they’ve faced a ridiculously soft schedule. Atlanta is also a completely different team on the road. They’re just 2-8 away from home this season.
On the flip side, Memphis has been much better at home. The Grizz have been a bit inconsistent, but did just beat the Jazz on the road the other night. This is more a fade of the Hawks for me than anything else. I’m not giving Atlanta too much credit for having three of their past five wins come against the Spurs, Thunder and Magic.
