I'm an editor here at Pickswise who was raised in a household full of sports fanatics. Since I unfortunately never had LeBron James' jumping ability I wasn't able to make it to the NBA, and chose writing about sports as the next best thing. An avid sports bettor myself, I'm excited to get to write about the industry as it gets set to take off across the country. Buckle up.

The NBA has a nice big slate on Saturday, with nine interesting games to pore over. What better way to celebrate than by going for a big payday? 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 (+210)

Minnesota Timberwolves -1.5 (-105)

Utah Jazz -7 (-110)

Parlay odds: +1050

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

Charlotte Hornets ML (+210) over Atlanta Hawks

We might as well start this mega parlay off with a bang, right? Let’s go with a money line ‘dog to get things started. Getting better than 2/1 with the Hornets here is a steal. Everyone is still overvaluing the Hawks just because of their fluke run to the Eastern Conference Finals last year. Even after winning three in a row, Atlanta is still just 7-9 on the year. Sure this is a back-to-back for the Hornets, but they are a young team; I wouldn’t expect them to be too gassed.

Charlotte picked up a win over the Pacers on Friday and it has now won five games in a row. One of those wins was over the Warriors, who have looked like the best team in the league so far. This one feels like a toss-up to me, so give me this money line all day long.

Minnesota Timberwolves -1.5 (-105) over Memphis Grizzlies

For the second leg of our mega parlay, we have the Timberwolves. Minnesota got off to a really slow start, but it has been picking things up and playing good defense lately. The ‘Wolves enter this one off back-to-back wins, most recently beating the Spurs by 25 while allowing only 90 points. In their past five games, the Timberwolves have only given up more than 99 points once. Memphis is 6-3 at home but just 2-4 on the road this year.

It also looks like the Grizzlies are going to be without Dillon Brooks, as he is doubtful with hamstring soreness. That’s a big loss. The Grizzlies might have the better record, but the Timberwolves actually have the better point differential for the season and are playing at home. At virtually even, I have to roll with the T-Wolves here.

Utah Jazz -7 (-110) over Sacramento Kings

To wrap up this mega parlay and hopefully bring us home, we have the Jazz. The Kings have once again been a massive disappointment this season; stop me if you’ve heard that one before. Sacramento is just 1-5 in its past six games entering Friday, and its only win in that span came against the lowly Pistons. Reports have emerged that head coach Luke Walton is on the verge of being fired, and lead guard De’Aaron Fox has regressed massively this season.

The Jazz have won each of their last two games by at least 16 points and are well-rested while the Kings are playing the second half of a back-to-back. Sacramento is a dysfunctional mess right now, with big man Marvin Bagley recently refusing to enter a game when called upon. Utah should roll.
