NBA Wednesday five-team mega parlay (+2441): Celtics to get back on track

NBA Wednesday five-team mega parlay (+2441): Celtics to get back on track

It’s another busy night in the NBA with 20 teams playing and we’ve opted for a five-team Mega Parlay this time around coming in at around 24/1 odds. The parlay is based on three spread picks and two picks on the total, featuring tonight’s clash between the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks on ESPN.

Don’t forget to visit our website and check what our NBA analysts have backed with side and total picks for all 10 games tonight.

Boston Celtics -8.5 (-110)

Chicago Bulls -1 (-110)

Washington Wizards -3 (-110)

Miami Heat vs. Memphis Grizzlies under 221 (-110)

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks over 226 (-110)

Parlay odds: +2441

Let’s dive in deep and analyze all five of our picks.

Boston Celtics -8.5 vs. Cleveland Cavaliers (-110)

The Celtics were disappointed after their eight-point home loss against Utah, officiating played a big role in the outcome of that game as the Jazz attempted 20 more free-throws. Even with that loss, Boston has won five of seven and is facing the perfect team to get back on track. They’ve beaten the Cavaliers in nine of 10 meetings and by 38 points the last time they played in January. The last time Boston lost at Cleveland was almost four years ago, so they should have very little issues covering here.

Chicago Bulls -1 vs. San Antonio Spurs (-110)

It’s always good to be mentioned in the same sentence as Michael Jordan, exactly that happened to Zach LaVine who dropped 40 points in under 32 mins to lead the Bulls on Tuesday against OKC. Chicago has two wins in a row and they are playing a team they’ve beaten in the last two meetings. San Antonio struggles playing at United Center, they’ve covered only once in the last six visits. Their two stars are both facing issues. LaMarcus Aldridge is no longer in the rotation as the team seeks to trade him, DeMar DeRozan is dealing with personal issues and could miss this one. Should be a home win for Chicago here.

Washington Wizards -3 vs. Sacramento Kings (-110)

Although they’ve dropped back-to-back games against the Milwaukee Bucks (no shame in that btw), the Wizards have actually responded well after losses this season. They are 4-1 ATS following an ATS loss. Bradley Beal has been on fire for most of the season, he scored 37 points in his last game against Milwaukee, he might even eclipse that against a horrible defensive team like the Sacramento Kings are. Speaking of the Kings they are just 1-6 ATS in the last seven meetings in Washington and they lose on the road by an average of 5.7 points. Wizards should also get shooter Dāvis Bertāns back for this one. It should be a fun and entertaining game, Beal and Westbrook will stuff the stat sheet and ultimately lead Washington to a win here.

Miami Heat vs. Memphis Grizzlies under 221 (-110)

Both teams enjoy playing defense, especially Miami who has held four teams in their last five games to under 100-points. They rank third in the NBA in points allowed this season and the under has cashed in five of their last six games. Same goes for Memphis, they like to get the job done on the defensive end and as a result five of their last seven have finished under. The two teams combined for just 203.4 points per game between them in the last 10 meetings which is really low by today’s NBA standards. The under is the smart bet here.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Dallas Mavericks over 226 (-110)

The line has been set in the high 220s by most bookies here despite only 208 points being scored between these two in their match-up on Monday. It is worth noting though that only 16 free throws were shot in that game, surely we can expect a much more physical game tonight. The Clippers have been inconsistent defensively, having games where teams like the New Orleans Pelicans drop 135 against them. Dallas is averaging 111.6 points per game, they’ve had a game in which they scored 124 against the Clippers earlier this season. It’s a marquee match-up and it’s live on national TV, expect the total to go over.
