NBA Monday three-team mega parlay (+1794 odds): Pacers pound Celtics
We have a solid slate in the NBA today, with seven great matchups to pore over. 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.
San Antonio Spurs ML (+215)
Indiana Pacers ML (+215)
Cleveland Cavaliers -3.5 (-110)
Let’s break down each of the legs one by one.
San Antonio Spurs ML (+215) over New York Knicks
Give me the Spurs to start off this mega parlay. With the current state of their offense, the Knicks shouldn’t be this large of a favorite over anybody. New York mustered just 75 points in their last game, which is borderline impressive because of how hard that is to do in today’s NBA. Truly awe-inspiring. It unfortunately wasn’t all that out of character, as just last week they only put up 80 in a loss to the Thunder.
In their two games prior to that OKC debacle, they failed to eclipse 96. You get the idea. Julius Randle just isn’t the same this year, and the Spurs are better than most people think. Despite being well below .500 San Antonio actually has an even point differential on the year, showing how unlucky they’ve gotten. In their most recent game, they only lost to the Nets by two in overtime.
Indiana Pacers ML (+215) over Boston Celtics
Speaking of teams with low floors, the Celtics have had plenty of abysmal games themselves this season. That’s why I’m taking the Pacers for the next leg of this parlay. Indiana’s recent record doesn’t look great, but they’ve played a brutal schedule. Just look at who all their recent losses have been against. For the most part, they’ve been close games against good teams. None of their last six defeats have been by more than 10 points.
They’re coming off a win over Utah, and getting better than 2/1 is too good to pass up with just about any Boston opponent at this point. We’re talking about a Celtics team that is 6-10 in their last 16, with some truly ugly losses in that span. Boston has played down to their level of competition all season, which is why it makes sense to fade them on the money line when they’re a big favorite.
Cleveland Cavaliers -3.5 (-110) over Sacramento Kings
To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Cavaliers. Cleveland has delivered time and time again for us in these mega parlays, even if they disappointed on Sunday night. You can’t really blame them too much for losing on the road to the Warriors in Klay Thompson’s first game back. The Cavs’ young star trio of Darius Garland, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen played arguably their worst game of the season against Golden State.
That isn’t going to repeat itself against the Kings. The Cavs aren’t getting nearly enough respect. They’ve got the best point differential in the Eastern Conference, despite having dealt with a rash of injuries and COVID issues at various points in the season. Sure it’s a back to back but it’s also a back-to-back for Sacramento, so there’s no disadvantage there. The Kings have lost four in a row and have looked like arguably the worst team in the league for much of the past few weeks.
