NBA Monday three-team mega parlay (+1157 odds): Nuggets make it six in a row
The NBA has another nice slate on Monday, and what better way to celebrate a new week 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.
The last time I wrote this mega parlay was on Thursday, and I cashed it at around 9/1. Let’s make it two in a row. But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every NBA game.
Washington Wizards -4.5 (-110)
Cleveland Cavaliers ML (+132)
Denver Nuggets ML (+184)
Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.
Washington Wizards -4.5 (-110) over New Orleans Pelicans
To start this mega parlay off, we have the Wizards on the spread. I’m going to keep fading the Pelicans, don’t try to stop me. One win over the Grizzlies doesn’t change much for me. New Orleans beat Memphis in its last time out, but right before that it had lost nine in a row. Without Zion Williamson in the lineup, the Pelicans just have virtually zero offensive upside. The Wizards, on the other hand, have been one of the league’s most pleasant surprises, but are still being slept on by oddsmakers.
Apparently 9-3 isn’t enough to get any dang respect. Their only three losses have come in road games to the Nets and Hawks and against the Raptors. Bradley Beal is out again for this one, but I think the rest of the team will be able to take care of business without him. They just won by 12 in their most recent game without Beal in the lineup.
Cleveland Cavaliers ML (+132) over Boston Celtics
To give us the odds boosts to truly become a mega parlay, we need a money line underdog or two, right? Let’s start with the Cavaliers. Cleveland is another team that has exceeded all expectations this season. The Cavs have started 9-5 and have already pulled off plenty of money line upsets. They’ve been underdogs in almost all of their wins. Cleveland just beat Boston in their most recent game, and that was despite having a terrible shooting night.
This team has a lot more talent than people realize. Evan Mobley looks like a star in the making and Jarrett Allen is having a breakout season, giving them a sometimes dominant front-court. Darius Garland is one of the league’s next elite guards. And Ricky Rubio has given the team the steady veteran presence they’ve been missing during their rebuilding years. At home, I’ll take them all day to knock off a mediocre Boston squad.
Denver Nuggets ML (+184) over Dallas Mavericks
We are wrapping up this mega parlay with the Nuggets. I don’t see any reason why Denver should be this large of an underdog. The Nuggets have won five games in a row and are starting to play to the level I expected coming into the season. They even managed to beat the Pacers the other day in the game Nikola Jokic was suspended for.
If they can win even without the reigning MVP in the lineup, they can do almost anything with Jokic on the floor. The Mavericks aren’t anything to be afraid of, and they have played a very soft schedule so far. When these teams played in Denver at the beginning of the season, the Nuggets won by 31. This one won’t be quite as lopsided, but I expect Denver to emerge victorious again.
