NBA Monday three-team mega parlay (+1357 odds): Spurs stun Jazz
A new week is here. And what better way to celebrate than by going for a big payday on Monday? 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.
But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every NBA game today.
Chicago Bulls -5 (-110)
San Antonio Spurs ML (+300)
Memphis Grizzlies +9.5 (-110)
Let’s break down each of the legs one by one.
Chicago Bulls -5 (-110) over Atlanta Hawks
To start this parlay off, we have the Bulls. Atlanta is just too depleted for me not to want to fade them right now. They were already shorthanded on Christmas without Trae Young and other key pieces, and now even more guys have entered the COVID protocols, including John Collins, who they’ve been relying on to score at least 20+ points per night when Young isn’t out there. Without both Young and Collins, I don’t see them having enough offense to keep up.
The Bulls won’t have Lonzo Ball, but the other crucial guys like Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan and Nikola Vucevic are all available. Atlanta put up only 87 points in a loss to the Knicks on Christmas Day, and that was with Collins still in the lineup. They have been held below 100 in three straight.
San Antonio Spurs ML (+300) over Utah Jazz
Getting the Spurs as this large of a home underdog against a Jazz team that won’t have Donovan Mitchell is too good to pass up. Utah barely managed to beat a slumping Dallas team that was without Luka Doncic at home on Christmas, and that was despite Mitchell carrying them with a 33-point performance. Now the Jazz are going on the road without Mitchell to play the Spurs, who are quietly surging.
San Antonio has gone 6-3 in their past nine games, and their point differential shows they’re a lot better than their 14-18 record indicates. They just lost a bunch of close games to good teams early in the year. This is the second half of a back-to-back for the Spurs, but they demolished the Pistons on Sunday night so none of their key guys had to play heavy minutes. They also didn’t have to travel at all.
Memphis Grizzlies +9.5 (-110) over Phoenix Suns
To wrap this mega parlay up we have the Grizzlies on the spread. Memphis isn’t getting enough respect here with this number basically being double digits. They’ve been very good overall this season, and now have Ja Morant fully back from his knee injury. The Griz just demolished Sacramento by 25 on Sunday night so just like with the Spurs, none of their starters had to play too many minutes.
Phoenix just lost by nine to Golden State at home on Christmas, and I’m not sure the Suns are quite as good as their record indicates. During their recent stretch where they have stacked an absurd amount of wins, they have also played a ridiculously easy schedule. Each of the last three times the Suns have played a good team, they have lost.
