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.

We’ve got a big NBA Sunday slate this week with 10 games, so we might as well go for a big payday. That’s right, we’re back with another NBA mega parlay, this time a four-teamer with a payout north of 20/1 if the Nuggets can bring us home in the nightcap. On Saturday we cashed our college basketball parlay at 23/1, why not follow it up with another winner on Sunday?

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.

San Antonio Spurs -1.5 (-110)

Portland Trail Blazers ML (+166)

Milwaukee Bucks -11 (-110)

Denver Nuggets ML (+120)

Parlay odds: +2024

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

San Antonio Spurs -1.5 (-110)

We rolled with the Spurs as part of our mega parlay two days ago, and they rewarded us with a blowout win over the Hawks. Now we’re going back to the well against Charlotte. The Hornets have very little depth right now with some COVID-19 related absences, and they’ve been reduced to a strict eight-man rotation. They squeaked past the Timberwolves in their most recent game, but the last time they had to play a real team the Grizzlies smoked them by 16. The Spurs are now 8-3 on the road and looking very much like a playoff team, but everybody is still sleeping on Greg Popovich’s squad. San Antonio has won four of five, and I think they’ll be just fine here.

Be sure to check out our full game preview for San Antonio Spurs vs. Charlotte Hornets.

Portland Trail Blazers ML (+166)

I don’t think the Mavericks should be nearly this large of a favorite over Portland here. The Mavs have been better lately than during their horrendous start, but it’s not like all their issues have been solved by a few wins. Their last three wins have come against the Pelicans, Hawks, and Timberwolves, not exactly a murderer’s row. They only beat Atlanta by a single point, and Minnesota by five, so they certainly haven’t been dominating. Dallas still can’t play any defense, as even in their most recent win against New Orleans, they gave up 130 points. The Trail Blazers have been picking it up recently too, winning five of their last six games. Two of those wins were against the 76ers, both impressive.

Milwaukee Bucks -11 (-110)

I don’t see the Bucks winning this one in anything other than a blowout. Milwaukee has the second-best point per game differential in the NBA this season but only the sixth-best record, showing how wide their win margin usually is in their victories. Each of their last five wins have come by at least 13 points, and the only one that was remotely close was on the road against the Nuggets. Now they’re playing one of the worst teams in the league, who will be without their best player in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Without SGA the Thunder have no offense, and they only scored 95 points in their most recent game. Giannis Antetokounmpo and co. are going to steamroll them.

Denver Nuggets ML (+120)

We would’ve cashed our Friday mega parlay at greater than 20/1 odds had the Lakers not come storming back from a 20-point deficit. They’ve been playing with fire for a while now, and they’re due to come crashing down here. Three of their past four games have gone to overtime, and the one that didn’t was that aforementioned dramatic comeback against Memphis. Simply put, they’ve got to be exhausted right now. Those fatigue issues should only be exacerbated by the altitude in Denver, giving the Nuggets a huge advantage. The teams the Lakers went to overtime with were the Thunder twice and the Pistons, so they clearly aren’t playing their best ball at the moment.
