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.

It feels good to be back. The new NBA season officially got started a couple weeks ago, and we have another nice slate on Tuesday. What better way to celebrate than by going for a big payday? That’s right, we’re back with another mega parlay, NBA edition. 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.

Milwaukee Bucks -5 (-110)

Sacramento Kings ML (+350)

Los Angeles Lakers -10.5 (-110)

Parlay odds: +1540

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

Milwaukee Bucks -5 (-110) over Detroit Pistons

To start this mega parlay off, we’ve got Milwaukee. Count me as someone who isn’t panicking about the Bucks’ slow start. They’ve lost a few games but there’s no reason for alarm, even though they won’t have Khris Middleton for this one. Put any four NBA players around Giannis Antetokounmpo and they’d be able to beat this Pistons team comfortably. Detroit is one of the worst teams in the league, and they’re 1-5 on the year.

Their one win came against the Magic, one of the other worst teams in the league. In their most recent game, the Pistons played another one of the top teams in the East, the Nets, and they lost by 26. They mustered only 91 points in that one, and have very little offensive upside with rookie overall pick Cade Cunningham still yet to make his debut. Detroit’s three leading scorers are Jerami Grant, Saddiq Bey, and Kelly Olynyk. Need I say more?

Sacramento Kings ML (+350) over Utah Jazz

To give us the odds to truly make this a mega parlay, we’ve got the Kings on the money line. Getting better than 3/1 is just too good to pass up. Sacramento isn’t nearly as bad as many people seem to believe, and they’ve already won several tough games this year. In fact, the Kings are 3-1 on the road this season. They pulled off a big upset of the Suns in Phoenix, so I don’t see why they can’t do the same to the Jazz here.

These teams actually played each other a little over a week ago. Utah won, but it was a very close game that Sacramento led most of the way. It was a tie game with less than four minutes left, these teams didn’t look mismatched. The Jazz’s offense hasn’t looked very good in their last couple of games.

Los Angeles Lakers -10.5 (-110) over Houston Rockets

Wrapping up our mega parlay with the Lakers in the slate’s nightcap. Everybody freaked out about Los Angeles after their slow start, but it was always going to take some time for them to adjust to all the new pieces they’re mixing in. The Lakers dropped their first two, but have since won four of five. Now is the time to buy low while you still can. LeBron James just returned to the floor, and they’re playing the lowly Rockets here.

It’s only been a couple of weeks, and Houston has already made it clear they aren’t going to be very competitive this season. They’ve started the year 1-5, and their only win came against the Thunder. Not just that, but all five of their losses have come by double digits. As such, I’m not too concerned about laying this hefty spread.
