NBA Monday two-team mega parlay (+1563 odds): Hornets pull stunner
We have a nice 6-game slate in the NBA today, and there are plenty of opportunities for value. What better way to celebrate the new week 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.
Charlotte Hornets ML (+530)
San Antonio Spurs (+164)
Let’s break down each of the two legs one by one.
Charlotte Hornets ML (+530) over Utah Jazz
Give me the Hornets to start off this mega parlay. Utah certainly hasn’t looked unbeatable recently, as they’re coming off back to back losses to the Wizards and Spurs. Charlotte’s recent record doesn’t look great, but they were significantly shorthanded due to COVID-19. They’re now finally starting to get their whole team back together, and LaMelo Ball just returned to the lineup a couple of games ago. I don’t blame them for losing on Sunday on the road against an elite Suns team that just got back Devin Booker.
The Jazz actually have a better record on the road than at home this year, so I’m not sure their home court advantage is as strong as oddsmakers are giving them credit for. Utah is just 10-6 at home this year, it hasn’t been a place where visitors stand no chance. The Hornets have a low floor but also have a very high ceiling thanks to their exciting offense, making them a prime target on a steep money line.
San Antonio Spurs (+164) over Los Angeles Clippers
To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we have the Spurs. I’m a skeptic of this Clippers team, and they have now lost back to back games. Most recently they lost to the lowly Thunder, and in their game before that they lost by 21 to Utah. There’s a chance Paul George returns here for the Clips, but crucial pieces in Marcus Morris and Isaiah Hartenstein remain out. George hasn’t played in a couple of weeks so even if he returns he could be a bit rusty.
The Spurs are starting to play a lot better after a terrible start, and are 7-5 in their last 12 games. Some of those wins have been really impressive, like when they beat the Jazz and Warriors both on the road. Dejounte Murray is having a breakout season, and he had 26 points when these teams first played this season.
