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 have a solid slate in the NBA today, and there are plenty of opportunities for value. What better way to celebrate the weekend than by going for a big payday on Sunday? 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.

I just hit the NFL Week 13 mega parlay last Sunday at +1255 and we also hit our NBA mega parlay last Sunday at +1320. Let’s make it two Sundays in a row! But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every NBA game.

Brooklyn Nets -7 (110)

Minnesota Timberwolves ML (+102)

Orlando Magic ML (+420)

Parlay odds: +1905

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

Brooklyn Nets -7 (110) over Detroit Pistons

We’re starting this mega parlay with a boring old regular spread play. I like the Nets in Detroit on Sunday, even without James Harden in the lineup. Harden will miss his first game of the season here, and I’m not sure it’s too big of a loss. Harden hasn’t quite been himself this year, and even his shooting went cold recently. In his last 7 games, Harden is just 10/47 (21%) from beyond the arc.

As such, I don’t think Brooklyn’s offense is going to take much of a hit. The more shots for Kevin Durant the better. The Pistons have lost 11 games in a row, and now they’re going to be without leading scorer Jerami Grant who just got hurt. Grant is the only Piston averaging more than 15 points per game this year.

Minnesota Timberwolves ML (+102) over Portland Trail Blazers

Now to truly make this a mega parlay, we need our first money line ‘dog. They’re only a very slight underdog, but give me the Timberwolves. Minnesota has lost 5 in a row, but I’m not panicking. That 5-game stretch was a really tough schedule, and included games against the Jazz, Hawks and Nets. Right before this skid, the T-Wolves had won 7 of 8 games. Portland is in shambles at the moment, and they’re playing without both Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.

Without those guys I don’t see how they should be favorites. Lillard may return, but even if he does I don’t think Portland will win. The Trail Blazers have lost 7 of their last 8 games, with the only win in that span coming against Detroit. They were struggling well before Lillard went down.

Orlando Magic ML (+420) over Los Angeles Lakers

To wrap up this mega parlay and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Magic in the nightcap. Call me crazy, but Orlando has a shot here. I continue to be a Lakers skeptic. Los Angeles has been incredibly unimpressive this year, despite playing arguably the softest schedule in the league. They have an extremely low floor, and as such are the perfect team to target for big money-line upsets.

Remember how they lost to the Thunder twice earlier this year? Seriously, look at who the Lakers have played recently. It’s a slate of all the worst teams in the NBA, and they still haven’t looked very good. When they played the Grizzlies without Ja Morant a few nights ago, they got beaten by double digits. Orlando has shown some fight this year, and 3 of their past 5 losses have been by 5 or fewer points.
