NBA Sunday three-team mega parlay (+1712 odds): Knicks upset Clips

NBA Sunday three-team mega parlay (+1712 odds): Knicks upset Clips

The weekend is wrapping up, why not celebrate by going for a big payday on Sunday? That’s right, we’re back with another NBA mega parlay, this time a three-teamer with a payout north of 17/1 where we’re counting on the Knicks to pull off an upset. We’ve been rolling recently with a bunch of recent parlay cashes, including our MLB mega parlay on Tuesday, so why not follow it up with even more winners 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.

New York Knicks ML (+265)

New Orleans Pelicans ML (+160)

Phoenix Suns -6 (-110)

Parlay odds: +1712

Keeping it simple with three money line underdogs. Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.

New York Knicks ML (+265)

The Knicks have a good chance to pull off this upset and bring us most of the way home. New York is 12-3 in their last 15 games, with the only three losses coming to the Suns twice and the Nuggets. Two of the best teams in the league. Now the Knicks are catching a Clippers team that is still a bit shorthanded. It’s not like Los Angeles is playing their best basketball, as they’re just 2-3 in their last five games. The two wins came against a Lakers team that’s in free-fall and a banged up Raptors team by five points. Most of their recent tests, they’ve failed. New York’s defensive intensity makes them a prime candidate to upset anybody. Getting +265 presents a lot of value, since there’s always going to be a lot of variance in Knicks games.

New Orleans Pelicans ML (+160)

The Pelicans shouldn’t be underdogs here, and they’re playing a lot better than most people realize. Most of their recent losses have been by very narrow margins to really good teams. They lost by just two points on the road against the 76ers last time out. Incredibly, three of their past four losses have been by only two points. That’s a team due for some positive regression, and it should come here against the Hornets. Charlotte is 3-4 in their last seven games, and those three wins came against the Magic and the Pistons twice. In all their recent tough games against real competition, they’ve lost. In their last game before beating the Magic, they lost by 21 to the Bulls. Getting +160 here is a steal. The Hornets don’t have anyone who can slow down Zion Williamson.

Phoenix Suns -6 (-110)

To bring this parlay home in the nightcap, we’re counting on the Suns. LeBron James still isn’t going to play, so we’ve got to keep fading the Lakers. The Suns have arguably been the best team in the league the past few months, blowing out opponents left and right. Los Angeles has looked abysmal recently, and without James nobody is stepping up. The Lakers are just 2-8 in their last 10 games, and haven’t looked particularly impressive in the two wins. They came against the Kings and Magic. Even when Anthony Davis had an amazing game and scored 36 last time out, they still lost to Portland. Oddsmakers keep just expecting the Lakers to suddenly turn it around, when there’s no real reason to believe that.
