NBA Saturday three-team mega parlay (+1525 odds): Grizzlies pull off upset

NBA Saturday three-team mega parlay (+1525 odds): Grizzlies pull off upset

The weekend is here, why not celebrate by going for a big payday? That’s right, we’re back with another NBA mega parlay, this time a three-teamer with a payout north of 15/1 where we’re counting on the Grizzlies to pull off a money line upset in one of the slate’s late games. We’ve been rolling recently, with a couple of big parlay wins last week, so why not follow it up with even more winners on Saturday?

We’re going big and bold, so let’s not waste any more time. We’re diving in, but don’t forget to check out our picks for the side and total on every NBA game.

Cavaliers ML (+125)

Celtics -5 (-110)

Grizzlies ML (+280)

Parlay odds: +1525

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

Cavaliers ML (+125)

To start this mega parlay off we’re going with a small money line underdog. The Cavaliers aren’t nearly as bad as most people think, and they’ve dealt with an onslaught of injuries this season. Collin Sexton just returned from injury in their last game, and promptly dropped 30 points. Perhaps most importantly, they’re catching the Bulls at the perfect time. Chicago is in free fall, having lost five straight games, and now they’re going to be without All-Star guard Zach LaVine. It’s hard to overstate just how much LaVine means to this offense. This five-game losing streak for the Bulls has consisted of losses to the Grizzlies twice, the Magic, Timberwolves, and Hawks. Not exactly a murderer’s row. They’re going to drop another one to a bad team here.

Celtics -5 (-110)

The Celtics have had some sluggish stretches this season, but they’re playing really well at the moment. Given how much talent this team has, it was only a matter of time before they figured things out. They certainly appear to have done so, as they’ve won seven of their last eight games. The only loss in that span came to a really good 76ers team. They’re firing on all cylinders, and both Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are playing really well at the moment. The Warriors are just 9-13 over the past six weeks, and they’ve been terrible on the road all year. Their last two games came against the Thunder and Cavaliers, so this step up in competition could come as a shock to their system.

Grizzlies ML (+280)

To wrap up this parlay and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Grizzlies on the money line to give us the big odds boost. Memphis has won two of three, and it would’ve been three in a row if not for Luka Doncic’s miraculous buzzer beater the other night. The Grizzlies are 6-3 in their last nine and they’ve shown a lot of upside in that stretch, including when they beat the 76ers by 16 on the road. That kind of upside is exactly what I’m looking for when backing a money line underdog. The Bucks are just 6-6 in their past 12 games, so I’m not concerned with fading them at this price. Most of those six wins came against bad teams like the Timberwolves, Magic, Kings etc.
