Well, it sure has been a blast so far. The NBA playoffs are officially in full swing, and we’ve got another slate of postseason games on Sunday with two great matchups. And what better way to celebrate than by going for a big payday? That’s right, we’re back with another mega parlay, NBA edition.

I just hit this mega parlay last Sunday at +1093, and I hit it the day before that as well at north of 11/1. Then we came up just a few points shy from hitting it three days in a row on Monday. Now we’re going for yet another cash and our second Sunday in a row. 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 playoff game.

Boston Celtics -5.5 (+104)

Memphis Grizzlies -10.5 (+450)

Parlay odds: +1022

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

Boston Celtics -5.5 (+104) over Milwaukee Bucks

To start this mega parlay we’ve got the Celtics -5.5. The Bucks got past Chicago with relative ease, but that had more to do with the Bulls being frauds than anything they did particularly right. Milwaukee will still be without Khris Middleton, and this is where it’ll really start to hurt them. The Bucks often struggle early in a playoff series, and they scored only 93 points in Game 1 of their series against the Bulls.

Chicago was getting a ton of open corner threes in the first round, they just weren’t making them. The Celtics aren’t going to squander opportunities like that after they just swept the Nets. Boston has been arguably the best team in the NBA for months, and they’re playing at home against a team without one of its stars that looked sloppy during much of their first series. If anyone will be able to slow down Giannis Antetokounmpo, it’s the defense that just stifled Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

Memphis Grizzlies -10.5 (+450) over Golden State Warriors

Looking at today’s second game, we’ve got the Grizzlies on an alternate spread to wrap things up. Everyone has hopped on the Warriors bandwagon after some electric performances against the Nuggets in the first round, but I’m not entirely sold. Denver just didn’t have the horses with all their injuries, and Nikola Jokic was effectively a one-man show for all 5 games. This is a much tougher matchup for Golden State.

The Grizzlies play with a ton of energy and can run with anybody, and they just beat a very good Timberwolves team despite Ja Morant shooting only 38% from the field and seeing his scoring dip significantly. Desmond Bane has stepped up big time, and over his past 4 games the second-year pro has gone 23/44 (52.3%) from beyond the arc. To end the regular season the Grizzlies were blowing out teams left and right as 6 of their last 9 wins came by at least 25 points, so they make a lot of sense as a team to target on an alt. spread.
