Let’s jump into my mega parlay for tonight.

Orlando Magic ML (+240)

Over 227 Points in Mavericks @ Timberwolves (-110)

Milwaukee Bucks ML (-116)

Parlay odds: +1108

Orlando Magic ML (+240)

If you have been backing the Orlando Magic over their past 6 games, you’ve made a lot of money. This team is riding a 6-game win streak and they are doing it in style. In all 6 games they were underdogs according to the oddsmakers, and in their last 2, they took down the best team in the NBA twice. In last night’s win against the Celtics, it was rookie Paolo Banchero who flourished with 31 points and 6 threes made. This team is deep, 5 other players scored in double digits despite the team shooting only 38% from the field. Tonight’s game at Atlanta won’t be easy, but we’re getting a really solid price for a team that’s looked unbeatable in almost 2 weeks now. Atlanta comes back home after a 3-game road trip, one of those losses was against Orlando, so the Magic already have a win in head-to-head meetings this season.

The Hawks have a few injury concerns, it’s still unclear if either Dejounte Murray or John Collins will play here while Clint Capela is already out of the lineup with a calf injury. I’m really digging the Magic right now, so let’s give them the benefit of the doubt one more time and back them to beat Atlanta on the road.

Over 227 Points in Mavericks @ Timberwolves (-110)

The Mavs have struggled a bit with scoring as of late, but tonight’s game against the Timberwolves is an ideal situation to change that. Luka Doncic sat out the game against the Cavs, so he should be fresh for tonight’s match-up with the T’Wolves who could be without Rudy Gobert as he’s questionable with an ankle injury. That would be huge for the Mavs as it would open up the paint, as they are last in the NBA averaging just 42.8 points from the inside. Despite those numbers, they still rank 9th in the NBA in offensive efficiency, and they just dropped 130 on the Portland Trail Blazers a couple of nights ago. Minnesota has also been scoring at a high clip lately, in their game against Chicago last night they put up 150 points – breaking their franchise record.

Anthony Edwards had a spectacular game with 37 points and 11 assists, so both teams and their star players are in good shape offensively coming into tonight’s game. It’s also worth pointing out that 7 of the last 10 meetings have gone over the total and the two teams are averaging 230.2 points per game during that stretch. This game has the over written all over it, so let’s back the points.

Milwaukee Bucks ML (-116)

The Pelicans have cooled off significantly over their last 3 games, losing to the Jazz twice and to the Phoenix Suns a couple of nights ago. Not having Brandon Ingram has finally caught up to them, they are having difficulties scoring on a consistent basis. That will surely be a problem if it’s not addressed ahead of tonight’s game against Milwaukee. The Bucks have the 2nd best defensive efficiency in the league allowing just 106.5 points per 100 possessions. Not only that, they will also have a healthy and well rested Giannis Antetokounmpo for tonight’s game, as he sat out their last game against the Jazz. Khris Middleton also didn’t play in that game as he continues to sit out with a knee issue.

That shouldn’t be too big of an issue for the Bucks who have already gotten used to not having him. This team is 6-2 SU in the last 8 meetings with the Pelicans and 10-4 SU in their last 14 versus Western Conference opponents. Let’s go with the Bucks to conclude our mega parlay.
