I'm an editor here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up.

The NBA has a nice big slate on Monday, with nine interesting games on the docket. 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.

But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every NBA game.

Charlotte Hornets ML (+170)

Cleveland Cavaliers ML (+220)

Los Angeles Clippers -7 (-110)

Parlay odds: +1549

Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

Charlotte Hornets ML (+170) over Chicago Bulls

To start this mega parlay off, I’m going with LaMelo and the Hornets in the battle of the Ball brothers. Charlotte’s offense is coming off a couple of great games, as they’ve produced an absurd 276 points over their last two. Overall, the Hornets have quietly gone 8-2 in their last 10.

On the flip side, the Bulls have started to cool a bit after a red hot start. Chicago has lost three of four, and one of those losses was to the Rockets. The only win in that span came against the lowly Magic. There was a ton of Bulls hype after their first month of the season, which has caused them to be overpriced in the market. This game feels like pretty close to a toss-up to me.

Cleveland Cavaliers ML (+220) over Dallas Mavericks

To give us the odds boost to truly make this a mega parlay we need another money line ‘dog. Give me the Cavaliers. Cleveland has been upsetting teams left and right this year, and you should underestimate them at your own peril. They’ve shown pretty well despite facing one of the league’s toughest schedule, and despite suffering a rash of injuries. Thankfully stud rookie Evan Mobley is back in the lineup now for the Cavs.

They came extremely close to snapping the Suns’ seemingly endless win streak the other night, and that was without Mobley. Now they’re playing an overrated Mavs team that has lost four of their last five. Dallas certainly isn’t anything to be afraid of right now. Their only recent win came in overtime against a Clippers team that is also very shorthanded at the moment.

Los Angeles Clippers -7 (-110) over New Orleans Pelicans

Wrapping this mega parlay up with the Clips. Los Angeles finally just got Marcus Morris back in action, which is a huge boost as they continue to play without Kawhi Leonard. Morris provides a massive upgrade to the offense. Speaking of offense, the Pelicans have very little of it when Zion Williamson isn’t playing. New Orleans has shown a little bit more fight recently, but this is still a team that’s 5-17 on the season.

In their most recent game they lost by 22 to the Jazz. Having Jonas Valanciunas as your second leading scorer isn’t a recipe for much success in today’s NBA. Brandon Ingram can’t do it all by himself, and even he has been extremely inefficient recently. In the month of November he’s shooting less than 37 percent from the field and just 28.2 percent from beyond the arc.
