NBA Saturday three-team mega parlay (+1252 odds): Rockets roll on
We have a big slate in the NBA today, but there are still plenty of opportunities for value. What better way to celebrate than by going for a big payday on Thursday? 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.
I just hit the NFL Week 13 mega parlay on Sunday at +1255 and we also hit our NBA mega parlay on Sunday at +1320. Let’s do it again! But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every NBA game.
Houston Rockets ML (+265)
Cleveland Cavaliers -6 (-110)
Golden State Warriors -3 (-105)
Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.
Houston Rockets ML (+265) over Memphis Grizzlies
We’ve got the Rockets to start this parlay. Getting a team that’s won seven of their last eight games at this large of a price is too good to pass up. Especially when the opposing team is playing without their best player in Ja Morant. The Grizzlies have played a very soft schedule since Morant went down, which explains why they’ve been able to stay afloat. Houston started off a disaster but has since started coming on strong, and I’m not sure it’s a fluke.
During this recent resurgence they’ve beaten the Nets, Bulls and Hornets, not just teams without a pulse. Their only loss during this eight-game stretch was by single digits to the Bucks. The Rockets didn’t even play poorly in that one, Giannis Antetokounmpo just dominated and went off for 41 points. Memphis doesn’t have anyone who can take over a game right now without Morant.
Cleveland Cavaliers -6 (-110) over Sacramento Kings
If you’ve read the mega parlays that I’ve done this year, you’ve seen the Cavs featured frequently. They continue to come through for us as oddsmakers continue to underestimate them, and I’m going right back to the well here. Cleveland has covered the spread in 10 straight games and in their recent wins they haven’t just been winning, they’ve been dominating. In five of their past seven games, they’ve held a lead of 25+ points.
That’s insane, and nobody is talking about it. Darius Garland is a star, and so is Evan Mobley. Lauri Markkanen is balling and Jarrett Allen is even playing at an All-Star level. On the flip side the Kings have been a big disappointment, and they’ve only been able to beat struggling teams recently. I don’t see them putting up much of a fight here on the road.
Golden State Warriors -3 (-105) over Philadelphia 76ers
To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Warriors in the nightcap. I continue to be a skeptic of this 76ers team, and I haven’t been too impressed with them even with Joel Embiid back in the lineup. Philly is 4-4 in their last eight games, with each of those four wins coming by five points or fewer. On the flip side some of their recent losses have been ugly, like when they fell by 22 to the Jazz at home in their most recent game.
They’ve been held to 98 points or fewer in three of five, and are now facing a Warriors defense that has been the best in the league. Golden State has been the best team in the league overall this season, and I expect them to win this battle of the Curry bros.
