I'm an NFL handicapper 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. For Andrew Ortenberg media enquiries, please email

We’ve got a relatively small NBA Sunday slate this week with only five games, but we’re still giving you another parlay. Even on Super Bowl Sunday it doesn’t hurt to sprinkle a little NBA action, right? Here we’ve got a modest three-teamer with a payout north of 7/1, where we’re banking on the Jazz. We’re going with two favorites against the spread, and one money line underdog.

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.

Utah Jazz -4.5 (+100)

Boston Celtics ML (+135)

Los Angeles Clippers -8.5 (-110)

Parlay odds: +793

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

Utah Jazz -4.5 (+100)

The Jazz are the hottest team in the league right now, and this line feels pretty short. They’ve won 14 of their past 15 games, with the only loss in that span coming on the road against Denver. Each of their last nine victories have come by at least 11 points, and only one of their 18 wins this season was by less than four, so I don’t think you have to worry much about this number if you think they’re going to win straight up. Mike Conley won’t play here, but I don’t think it’ll matter too much with Bojan Bogdanovic on fire as a secondary scoring option behind Donovan Mitchell. Indiana has been mediocre at best since trading Victor Oladipo, and they’re just 4-7 in their last 11 games. They’ll get steamrolled just like every other team that’s been in the path of the Jazz recently.

Boston Celtics ML (+135)

After the Jazz take care of business in the early game, we’ll turn our attention to the Celtics on the money line. They were struggling for a while there, but that was because they were without Jayson Tatum. Tatum is back now, and Boston is coming off a win over the Clippers. Sure they’re only 4-3 in their last seven games, but all three of those losses were by five points or fewer. One was by just a single point to the Lakers, one of the NBA’s best. They’ve also already beat the Warriors on the road during this West Coast road trip. The Suns are just 5-6 in their last 11, and that’s despite playing a pretty easy schedule. This is a team that just lost by 22 to the Pelicans, so I wouldn’t make them a favorite here.

Los Angeles Clippers -8.5 (-110)

As I just alluded to the Clippers are coming off a loss to the Celtics, and you don’t want to catch them coming off a loss. They blew a winnable game and lost by four to Boston, so they should come out angry here. They lost a close game to the Nets earlier in the week, and responded by blowing out Cleveland by 22 in their following game. I think we see something similar here. They still won’t have Paul George, but they shouldn’t need him to take care of business. The Kings have been hot recently, but they started 5-10 for a reason. Only one of Sacramento’s 11 wins this season has been by more than 10 points, so I’m not buying them as a legit threat. Their losses have often been lopsided while their wins have been very close.
