NBA Tuesday three-team mega parlay (+807 odds): Nets to maul Mavs
We have a small 3-game slate in the NBA today, but there are a couple of marquee matchups. 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. We’re going big and bold again, so let’s not waste any more time.
I just hit the NFL Week 13 mega parlay on Sunday at +1255 and we also hit our NBA mega parlay on Sunday at +1320. Let’s make it two out of three! But before we dive in, don’t forget to check out our free picks on the side and total for every NBA game.
Brooklyn Nets -3 (-110)
San Antonio Spurs ML (+120)
Boston Celtics ML (+120)
Let’s break down each of the three legs one by one.
Brooklyn Nets -3 (-110) Dallas Mavericks
We’re starting this mega parlay with the team many love to hate, the Brooklyn Nets. Brooklyn got off to a slow start in the first two weeks of the season, but they’ve since turned things on and then some. The Nets are 14-4 in their last 18, and the losses came to the Bulls (twice), Warriors and Suns — 14 wins and 4 understandable losses to some of the best teams in the league. On the flip side, the Mavericks have been awful lately, going 2-7 in their last 9.
Luka Doncic is questionable for this one with an ankle injury, and if he doesn’t play then I don’t see how this game will be competitive. Even if he does play I still like the Nets, so taking Brooklyn now makes a lot of sense. If you want to make the odds juicier to make this a real ‘mega’, I’d suggest taking the Nets giving up more points on an alt spread.
San Antonio Spurs ML (+120) over New York Knicks
This couldn’t possibly be a mega parlay without at least a money line ‘dog or two, right? The Spurs are catching a second wind, and they were never as bad as they looked during the early going as they lost a ton of close games to good teams. San Antonio has now won 4 of their last 5 games, which included a huge upset on the road over the Warriors.
Their only loss in that span was by just 4 points on the road against the Suns. Now they get to play at home against a struggling Knicks team that has lost 3 in a row. New York has been a disappointment overall this year, and the offense just doesn’t have much juice. Julius Randle can’t do it all by himself, and nobody else is averaging more than 14 points per game.
Boston Celtics ML (+120) over Los Angeles Lakers
To wrap up this mega parlay and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Celtics. Give me just about anybody as an underdog against the Lakers at this point. Los Angeles just isn’t cohesive at all, and it’s been ages since they beat a good team. Even in their recent wins they’ve looked uninspiring. The Lakers have won 5 games since November 10. Those wins came against the Kings, Pistons, Pacers (overtime), Pistons again and Spurs.
Of that bunch, the Kings have the best record at 10-14. The Grizzlies are the best team they’ve beaten through 24 games. They’ve been gifted a cakewalk schedule, and have still struggled mightily. The Celtics, on the other hand, have gone 11-6 in their last 17, and have put up 275 points in their past 2 games.
