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 Wednesday 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 on Sunday at +1093, and I hit it on Saturday 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 three cashes in five days. 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.

Chicago Bulls ML (+590)

Denver Nuggets +9 (-110)

Parlay odds: +1217

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

Chicago Bulls ML (+590) over Milwaukee Bucks

Call me crazy, but I don’t think the Bulls have absolutely no chance here like everybody else. And at nearly 6/1 we’ve got to take them for the first leg of our mega parlay. It sucks that Zach LaVine has entered COVID protocols and likely won’t play here, but it’s not like he’s been super productive in this series. When the Bulls won Game 2 it was because of a dominant effort from DeMar DeRozan, not because of anything LaVine did as he operated as the clear third option.

Chicago has already won one game in Mllwaukee and they came close in Game 1 as well. And the Bucks still had Khris Middleton for both of those games. They haven’t felt Middleton’s absence too much so far, but that doesn’t mean it won’t become a factor here. This Bulls team has a ton of pride, and they aren’t going to go down without a fight. Game 4 was a blowout — one that we predicted as part of our winning mega parlay — but don’t overreact to one game.

Denver Nuggets +9 (-110) over Golden State Warriors

To wrap this mega parlay up we’ve got the Nuggets on the spread. This also feels like too steep of a line for an elimination game. The Nuggets showed a lot of resolve with their Game 4 win with their backs up against the wall, and now they’ve got a lot of momentum. They beat the Warriors down 3-0 despite the fact that Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry both went for 32+. And that win wasn’t just some fluke. Remember, they very nearly beat Golden State in Game 3 as well before collapsing in the final minute.

Nikola Jokic has been superb, and he’s at least going to be able to keep his team within single digits. Aaron Gordon and Monte Morris also both finally stepped up, with each scoring at least 21 points in Game 4. That’s a great sign for Denver’s chances here. Jordan Poole finally cooled down the other night and went just 3/10 from the field. As long as he isn’t going nuclear again then this should be a pretty close game.
