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.

The NBA is finally back from its All-Star break at long last, why not celebrate by going for a big payday? That’s right, we’re back with another NBA mega parlay, this time a four-teamer with a payout just north of 25/1 where we’re counting on the Warriors to pull off a money line upset. We’ve been rolling recently, with a couple of big NBA same game parlay wins, so why not follow it up with even more winners on Thursday?

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.

Atlanta Hawks -1.5 (-110)

Sacramento Kings -4.5 (-110)

Portland Trail Blazers ML (+120)

Golden State Warriors ML (+240)

Parlay odds: +2629

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

Atlanta Hawks -1.5 (-110)

There’s just no way you can bet on the Raptors with how many guys they’re missing. Even after the break Toronto will still be without stars Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam, among others, for this one. Toronto has lost four of their last five games, with the only win in that span coming against the lowly Rockets. One of those losses was an ugly 24-point blowout at the hands of the Pistons, showing they truly have no floor when playing without a good chunk of their roster. Understandably so. Atlanta finally has a little momentum back after back to back wins over Miami and Orlando to enter the break, and they should be able to take care of business against this depleted Raptors team.

Sacramento Kings -4.5 (-110)

It’s hard not to want to fade the Rockets right now. Houston was looking like the worst team in the league right before the break, and I don’t see any reason to believe the time off will have changed things much. They’ve lost 13 games in a row, and they still won’t have Christian Wood for this one. Without Wood, the team simply doesn’t have enough juice. Sacramento’s been up and down, but most of their recent losses have been really close with a lot of heartbreakers mixed in. De’Aaron Fox was hot before the break and had 32/12/8 in his last game, and I think he should be able to pick up right where he left off.

Portland Trail Blazers ML (+120)

To get a little bit of an odds boost here we’re going with the Trail Blazers as a slight money line underdog. Portland doesn’t get the respect they deserve for being 21-14 in a really tough conference, and they’ve won three straight entering this one. When these teams played in Phoenix recently the Blazers lost by 32, so you know they’ve been itching for a chance at revenge against the Suns. Damian Lillard is playing out of his mind, and he’s going to outshine Devin Booker here. Lillard made it clear he wasn’t happy with once again getting overlooked after his dominant performance in the All-Star game, so I’m expecting him to come out and make a statement here in his first game back.

Golden State Warriors ML (+240)

To really get the big odds boost we need to truly make this a mega parlay though, we’re adding the Warriors on the money line. For a few reasons, I think Golden State has a very good shot to upset the Clippers. The Warriors had a brutal road trip right before the break, and the time off will have rejuvenated them. The Clips quietly haven’t been playing their best ball, having lost four of their past five games. Golden State is top five in defensive efficiency this season, and Steph Curry always tends to show out in these nationally televised games. Los Angeles’ public perception is inflated, creating some value on the underdog here.
