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.

Well, we have made it to the end. The 2021-22 NBA season will have its final day on Sunday and all 30 teams will be in action. 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 today.

Houston Rockets ML (+420)

New York Knicks ML (+172)

Parlay odds: +1314

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

Houston Rockets ML (+420) over Atlanta Hawks

Give me the Rockets on the money line to start off our final mega parlay of the regular season. Sure, this game means more to the Hawks than it does to the Rockets, but that perceived ‘motivation’ edge can only take you so far. The Rockets’ starters are their young players, so it’s not like they’re going to be resting guys. They want Kevin Porter Jr and Jalen Green to get as many reps as possible, and KPJ is coming off a 35-point game. They lost by two points on the road against the Raptors as a huge +750 underdog in a game where they had a big lead in the fourth quarter.

They’ve showed some fight down the stretch, and right before that they played a pretty competitive game on the road against the Nets. Porter Jr had 36 in that one. The Hawks have been a poor road team all season; they are just 15-25 away from home. Atlanta’s recent record looks pretty good, but they played a really soft schedule down the stretch. And it wasn’t too long ago that they lost by 21 to the Pistons, so they certainly aren’t immune to big upsets.

New York Knicks ML (+172) over Toronto Raptors

I’m taking New York to wrap up this parlay and hopefully bring us home. The Knicks also don’t have anything real to play for at this point, but they’ve also been fighting hard down the stretch. Nobody has noticed because of how disappointing the season has been overall, but they’ve quietly gone 6-3 in their last nine games. Obi Toppin is coming off an electric game where he poured in 35 points in a 22-point win over the Wizards.

The Raptors are locked into the No. 5 seed in the East, so it really doesn’t matter to them whether they win here. It wouldn’t be at all surprising if they end up resting some of their starters. On the flip side, a Tom Thibodeau-coached team is never going to let up. The Knicks will aggressively try to win. And they’ve been playing legitimately well of late. A couple of weeks ago they managed to beat the 1-seed Heat on the road.
