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.

It feels good to be back. The new NBA season officially got started a couple weeks ago, and we have another nice slate on Saturday. What better way to celebrate the weekend than by going for a big payday? That’s right; we’re back with another mega parlay, NBA edition. I came close to hitting the last mega parlay I did on Thursday at +1157, now let’s finish the job this time. 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.

Utah Jazz ML (+132)

Boston Celtics ML (+180)

Los Angeles Lakers ML (+176)

Parlay odds: +1692

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

Utah Jazz ML (+132) over Miami Heat

Starting this mega parlay off with the first of three money line underdogs. Everyone was ready to crown the Heat NBA champions following their 6-1 start. I thought that was a bit premature. We had the Celtics as +240 underdogs in Thursday’s edition of this mega parlay, and sure enough they beat Miami. The Heat only mustered 78 points in that game and I just haven’t been as impressed with them as everybody else.

Utah is 7-1 this season, with its only loss coming on the road against a really tough Bulls team. The Jazz just blew out the Hawks by 18 on the road in their most recent game. They did it without Donovan Mitchell, too, and he is questionable to return here. If Mitchell is back on the floor I love this bet. But even if he isn’t, this team is very deep, and they have five different guys averaging at least 15.5 points per game. People forget very easily that the Jazz had the best record in the Western Conference last year.

Boston Celtics ML (+180) over Dallas Mavericks

The Celtics helped almost cash our mega parlay the other night, and we’re going right back to them here. Boston was the subject of a bunch of negative headlines, but the media panic was always an overreaction. They Celtics have clamped down in their past two games, giving up fewer than 80 points both times. That’s pretty insane to say in today’s NBA. The Mavericks are lucky to be 5-3. Each of their past three victories have come by five points or fewer.

Their biggest win on the season was by 10 points at home against the lowly Rockets. On the flip side, each of their three defeats have been ugly. They lost to Miami by 15 at home, the Nuggets by 31, and the Hawks by 26. Luka Doncic is the only player averaging more than 15 points per game for Dallas. He’s not getting enough help.

Los Angeles Lakers ML (+176) over Portland Trail Blazers

To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Lakers in the nightcap. Los Angeles won’t have LeBron James, but I still don’t see any reason for Portland to be this large of a favorite. The Trail Blazers have been a big disappointment this season and are playing the second half of a back to back here. Right before this back to back, they had just wrapped up a three-game road trip where they lost all three games, to the Cavaliers, 76ers and Hornets.

Los Angeles has had some uninspiring efforts this season, including their two shocking losses to the Thunder. But the Lakers led by 19+ in both of those games and have won each of their last five games outside of those two. If they hadn’t melted down late in both those games against OKC, they would be riding a seven-game winnings streak. There won’t be too many opportunities to get the Lakers at this discounted of a price.
