NBA Thursday three-team mega parlay (+1261 odds): Cavaliers pull off upset

NBA Thursday three-team mega parlay (+1261 odds): Cavaliers pull off upset

We’ve got another TNT Thursday with some marquee matchups, why not celebrate by going for a big payday? That’s right, we’re back with another NBA mega parlay, this time a three-teamer with a payout north of 10/1 where we’re counting on the Cavaliers to pull off a money line upset in one of the slate’s early games. We’ve been rolling recently, with a couple of big parlay wins last week, 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.

Cavaliers ML (+275)

Celtics -6 (-110)

Suns -9 (-110)

Parlay odds: +1261

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

Cavaliers ML (+275)

Let’s start this mega parlay off with a big money line underdog. The Cavaliers are being underestimated, and they’re not nearly as bad as most people think. They had one terrible stretch in February, but have otherwise pretty much been a .500 team. They’ve won three of their past five, and have already pulled off plenty of upsets this season. What this really boils down to though is that the Warriors shouldn’t be this large of a favorite against just about anybody right now. Especially not on the road. Golden State’s home/road splits are as stark as any team in the league’s, and they’re just 10-18 away from home this year. They’re just 8-13 in their last 21 overall, and their only road win in the past month came against a terrible Thunder team missing Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Celtics -6 (-110)

I think the Celtics are going to roll here. Boston has won six of their past seven, with the only loss in that span coming to Philly. Now that Jayson Tatum has found his groove, this team is going to be hard to stop. In those seven games, Tatum is averaging a whopping 29.4 points per game, nearly 10 rebounds per game, and is shooting comfortably above 40 percent from downtown. The Lakers have shown they can’t compete against top teams without LeBron James and Anthony Davis. They’re 6-8 in their last 14, and five of those wins came against the Hornets, Raptors, Kings, Magic, and Cavaliers. AKA some of the worst teams in the league. They don’t have the offense to keep up here.

Suns -9 (-110)

Closing things out with what should be a double digit win from the Suns. Phoenix has been arguably the best team in the league the past couple of months, and they’re 31-7 in their last 38 games. They’re playing well on both ends of the floor, and just crushed the Heat by 20 in their most recent game. The last time they played Sacramento they won by 16, and that was all the way back at the beginning of the season when they weren’t playing nearly as well as they are now. The Kings have lost eight games in a row, so they’re a perfect fade mark. Six of those eight losses came by double digits.
