About Last Night
NBA parlay cashes for 3rd time in 4 days!
The Pickswise NBA parlay cashed for the 3rd time in the last 4 days on Monday as the Nuggets, Pelicans and Timberwolves all covered for a +596 win! We had nailed 3-team parlays at the same odds on Friday and Sunday too. That wasn’t the only big win either, as we hit a +950 first-basket best bet with Tobias Harris of the 76ers. Denver won that game against Philadelphia 116-111, while the Timberwolves beat the Kings 119-115 to prevent them clinching a playoff spot.
4-1-1 day in the NHL
It was a strong day for our NHL cappers too, as we went 4-1-1 on hockey picks. The Islanders, Wild and Avalanche all won 5-1 — against the Devils, Kraken and Ducks respectively — in games affecting the playoff standings.
XFL mega parlay is a +1062 winner
Our picks of Defenders -2.5 and over 42 both cashed easily as DC beat the Houston Roughnecks 37-26 in the final XFL game of the week, That gave us a 6-2 week on XFL Week 6 and also cashed our +1062 XFL mega parlay!

Best Bet of the Day
NBA: Over 227 points in Boston Celtics vs Washington Wizards
7:00 pm ET, NBCS BOS/NBCS WAS
The Celtics have scored at least 120 points in 4 of their last 5 games. They went over 130 points in 2 of those contests, which is exactly the number they dropped on the Wizards when the teams last met in late November. Boston has gone over the total 5 times in its last 7 on the road and in 8 of the last 12 games against Eastern Conference opponents. The Wizards are just 21st in defensive efficiency, allowing 113.2 points per 100 possessions. Washington is 20-15-1 on the O/U in home games too, so another high-scoring contest is likely.

Quote of the Day
“I think he’s a great player. The guy’s a beast and he’s so talented.”
The duel between MVP candidates Nikola Jokic and Joel Embiid did not happen as Embiid missed last night’s game, but the Nuggets star was full of praise for his award rival.
