NBA Tuesday three-team mega parlay (+1249 odds): Kings top Lakers
We’ve got a nice slate in the NBA today, with a solid five games on the docket. And what better way to celebrate than by going for a big payday on Tuesday? That’s right; we’re back with another mega parlay, NBA edition. I just hit this mega parlay on Thursday at +918, and this is only my third time writing it since. Let’s make it two out of four!
We almost cashed on Monday as we hit Grizzlies ML at +260 and Jazz -10.5, but the Hawks couldn’t come through for us with the final leg. We’re going big and bold again, so let’s not waste any more time. But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every NBA game today.
Cleveland Cavaliers -3 (-110)
Phoenix Suns -7 (-110)
Sacramento Kings ML (+270)
Parlay odds: +1249
Let’s break down each of the legs one by one.
Cleveland Cavaliers -3 (-110) over Memphis Grizzlies
The Cavaliers have come through for us so many times in these mega parlays, I might as well start off Monday’s with them. We had the Grizzlies as part of this mega parlay on Monday, but now is the time to sell high after their big win over Brooklyn. The Nets just aren’t that good right now, and they had lost to a severely depleted Clippers team in their most recent game. Cleveland has a few recent losses, but that was only because the roster was decimated by COVID.
Overall they’ve been arguably the second-best defense in the league and are showing a ton of potential on offense. Most importantly, it looks like Darius Garland is going to make his return from COVID protocols here. With Garland, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen all back together again, the Cavs should pick up right where they left off.
Phoenix Suns -7 (-110) over New Orleans Pelicans
We faded the Pelicans as part of this parlay on Monday, and it worked out great. Why not go back to the well with on Tuesday in their game against Phoenix? I’m not too concerned about the Suns even though they’ve dropped a few games recently. A one-point loss to the Grizzlies doesn’t worry me, nor does a narrow loss on Christmas to the Warriors. In their most recent game, they beat the Hornets by 34, showing they can still run up the score on inferior teams even without DeAndre Ayton.
The Pelicans’ record has gotten a bit better recently, but only because they’ve picked up a few fluke wins against teams that were extremely shorthanded. This is also the second half of a back-to-back for New Orleans, while Phoenix was off on Monday. Jonas Valanciunas has been arguably the Pels’ best player recently, which tells you everything you need to know about the state of the team.
Sacramento Kings ML (+270) over Los Angeles Lakers
To give us the odds to truly make this a mega parlay we need at least one big money line ‘dog right? Anytime you can get this good of a price fading the Lakers, you almost always have to take it. Los Angeles is volatile to put it kindly, and their floor is extremely low, making them a prime target for money line upsets. In their most recent game, the Lakers barely managed to squeak past a Timberwolves team that was playing without Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell.
They’re still just 3-6 in their last nine games, and all three of those wins came against bottom-feeding teams. The Kings haven’t been great by any stretch, but they’ve quietly won three of their past four. I just don’t see there being too much of a gap between these teams.
