It’s a huge night in the NBA, with 4 games on the schedule. Three are possibly of the close-out variety, with the Knicks, Lakers and Heat all holding 3-1 advantages in the opening round. They will try to finish off their respective series against the Cavaliers, Grizzlies and Bucks. Meanwhile, the Warriors and Kings are tied at 2-2. Below is my NBA mega parlay for Wednesday, and also be sure to check out all of our NBA picks for tonight’s games.

LA Lakers ML over Memphis Grizzlies (+152)

Game 4 was an absolutely wild affair, won by the Lakers in overtime. There is quite a difference between leading 3-1 and going back on the road tied at 2-2, so Los Angeles has to be thrilled that it managed to survive in front of its home fans on Monday night. The Grizzlies, on the other hand, are licking wounds in a major way. Ja Morant played in Game 4, but he appears to be less than 100 percent due to a hand injury. Morant may have to go crazy for Memphis to win on Wednesday and keep its season alive, but he may not be able to do it. With momentum in hand, LeBron James probably isn’t going to let his squad lose – not in the overall series and perhaps not even in Game 5. Well into plus money, I’ll gladly take L.A. on the money line.

Miami Heat +8.5 alternate spread over Milwaukee Bucks (+130)

The spread on this game is Bucks -11, but I don’t think the Heat will even need the full 11 points. Against all odds, they are in control of the series with a 3-1 lead over top-seeded Milwaukee. It helps that Giannis Antetokounmpo has been hobbled by a back problem, but Miami in its own right has been impressive. Jimmy Butler was especially amazing on Monday, going for 56 points in his team’s Game 4 victory. The Heat’s bench has outscored that of Milwaukee 91-44 over the past 2 contests, and with that kind of discrepancy it’s hard to see the visitors losing by a lot in Game 5. Heck, they might even win outright. I will gladly take the points and also bump the number down for better value.

Golden State Warriors -1.5 over Sacramento Kings (-110) 

This series has turned on its head… albeit just barely. Once 2-0 down, the Warriors have now tied the Kings at 2-2 – although Sacramento had a chance to pick up the first road win of the series in Game 4 before Harrison Barnes missed a shot at the buzzer. With Sacramento star De’Aaron Fox (finger) now doubtful for Game 5, Golden State has become the favorite to advance – and to win on Wednesday even though this is a team that has been awful on the road. Fox is averaging 31 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds per game so far in the opening round, so obviously his absence would be a massive blow. Given Fox’s status and the Warriors’ momentum, the defending champs winning and covering has to be the choice.
