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.

The NBA is approaching the home stretch and we’ve got a great slate on Wednesday with a whopping 12 games to pore over. And what better way to celebrate than by going for a big payday? That’s right; we’re back with another mega parlay, NBA edition. I just hit the mega parlay for college basketball at +1125 last Wednesday, and then I hit it in the NBA at +1303 on Thursday!

I’m hot with these mega parlays right now, and we’ll look to keep it rolling here. 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.

Detroit Pistons ML (+215)

Milwaukee Bucks -5.5 (-110)

New Orleans Pelicans -8 (-110)

Parlay odds: +1048

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

Detroit Pistons ML (+215) over Chicago Bulls

To start this mega parlay off, we have the Pistons on the money line. Believe it or not, Detroit is genuinely hot right now. The Pistons have won 3 in a row and 6 of their last 8, most recently topping Trae Young and the Hawks. Cade Cunningham is getting more comfortable in the offense, and he’s starting to really take the reins. He had 28 points in the win over Atlanta on Monday. Some of their wins have been downright impressive, and they’ve beaten Charlotte and Boston both on the road during this recent stretch.

On the flip side, the Bulls have been really struggling. Chicago has lost 5 in a row, and they’re shorthanded right now. Obviously, guys like Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso are still sidelined, and now Nikola Vucevic is banged up as well. Vucevic missed the team’s most recent game, a 15-point loss, with a hamstring issue that has him questionable here. If you look at the Bulls’ recent wins, almost all of them have come against the league’s bottom-tier teams. I think they’re a bit overrated.

Milwaukee Bucks -5.5 (-110) over Atlanta Hawks

Speaking of Trae Young and the Hawks, I’m fading them here for the next leg of this parlay. Atlanta has been one of the league’s biggest disappointments this season, and the loss to Detroit most recently was just the tip of the iceberg. They’ve been middling overall, and have particularly struggled on the road. The Hawks are 19-13 at home this season, but an abysmal 12-20 on the highway. Even their latest win was by just 3 points against a Magic team that’s circling the drain.

The Bucks have won 5 in a row, including wins over the Suns, Bulls and Heat. Sure this is a back-to-back for Milwaukee, but it’s not as bad as that seems. The Bucks absolutely demolished the Thunder on Tuesday night, so the starters didn’t have to play heavy minutes. Giannis Antetokounmpo only played 28 minutes on Tuesday (and he scored 39 points).

New Orleans Pelicans -8 (-110) over Orlando Magic

To wrap this mega parlay up and hopefully bring us home, we’ve got the Pelicans on the spread. New Orleans is playing like a whole new team recently, and oddsmakers have yet to catch up. You can pretty much throw everything from the first few months of the season out the window when evaluating the Pels. CJ McCollum has been better than the team ever could’ve imagined since they traded for him, and he’s coming off a game where he dropped 32 & 11. The Pelicans are 9-6 in their last 15, and most of their recent losses have been to really good teams.

Each of those 9 wins in that span came by at least 8 points, so I’m not really worried about laying a spread this large with them. Especially against the lowly Magic. Orlando has been one of the worst teams in the league all season, and they’re just playing out the string. They did just pick up a narrow win over a depleted Raptors team that is spiraling, but other than that the only wins they’ve mustered in recent weeks have been against the true bottom-feeding teams.
