Let’s take a look at today’s three-team mega parlay.
Heat -9.5 alternate spread (+150)
Hawks ML (+155)
Bucks -4.5 (-110)
Parlay odds: +1117
For this parlay we are going with two favorites against the spread – one on an alternate number – and one underdog on the money line. Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.
Heat -9.5 alternate spread over Hornets (+150)
The Hornets lost to the 76ers by 30 points – giving up 144 in the process – in their last game even though Gordon Hayward was back. That doesn’t bode well moving forward. Charlotte has lost 2 of its last 3 and it is 0-3 in the head-to-head series with Miami during the 2021-22 campaign. The Bees are also just 6-20 SU the last 26 times they have taken their talents to South Beach. As for the Eastern Conference-leading Heat, they have bounced bounce back in a solid way from 4-game losing streak with 4 wins in their last 5 games. Miami is 13-4 SU in its last 17 against East opponents it boasts the second-best home record in the conference. Look for the home team to win big on Tuesday.

Hawks ML over Raptors (+155)
Atlanta is hot right now, winning and covering 5 straight and in 7 out of its last 10. Toronto had its 5-game winning streak snapped on Sunday against Miami. This is a game of offense versus defense. The Raptors are seventh in the NBA in points allowed at 106.9 points per game and have been even stingier over their last 10 allowing just 104.1 points per game. The Hawks are sixth in the league at 113.8 points scored per contest and have surged to 119.8 over their last 10. Atlanta is coming off a big win over Brooklyn in which it prevailed even though Kevin Durant scored 55. Trae Young has been playing his best basketball of the season in recent weeks, which is saying a lot because he has been great all year long. Young averages 29 points and 11 assists over the last 10 games and he had 41 the last time out against Toronto. Don’t be surprised if the visitors win this one outright.

Bucks -4.5 over Bulls (-110)
The defending champion Bucks have dropped 2 straight, but the first loss was because they rested all of their top guys and the second was a respectable 118-112 setback at a Dallas team that is superior to the opponent Milwaukee will be facing on Tuesday. With the Bucks 2 games out of first in the East and a half-game out of fourth, they will remain extremely motivated to pick up wins down the stretch. And they should get one against Chicago, as the Deer are totally dominating this head-to-head series right now. They are 3-0 this season, 15-1 SU in the last 16 overall, and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 trips to the United Center. The Bulls are a disastrous 0-16 SU this season against the current top 3 teams in each conference.
