If you’re new to betting, a parlay is a bet you place with multiple outcomes needing to happen in order to win. The additional outcomes make it more difficult to hit, but the upside is better odds and a higher payout if you get your choices correct.
NBA Monday Night Parlay
When considering a parlay bet, I tend to choose moneyline odds instead of spreads. Adding multiple spread picks into a parlay bet adds another layer and element that I would prefer to avoid.
With moneyline bets, we just need these three teams to win to hit on our pick.
Denver is coming off a monster 30-point win over Oklahoma City, highlighting the depth and breadth of its starting lineup. All five starters scored over 13 points, showcasing the talent the Nuggets roster has.
Nikola Jokic has played himself into the MVP conversation, averaging 26.7 points, 10.9 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game. You rarely see a big man put up numbers like Jokic has, and it's his presence that has me liking the 18-15 Nuggets against the 15-17 Chicago Bulls.
The Bulls have struggled against big men the last five games. Last week, it was allowing Sixers center Joel Embiid to drop 50 points, followed by 20-plus-point outings from Marvin Bagley, Karl-Anthony Towns and Deandre Ayton.
Jokic will be the next in line for a big game, giving the Nuggets the clear edge.
Even without Kevin Durant, the Nets have been one of the hottest teams in the NBA, going 8-2 in their last 10. The Spurs have been more up and down, missing a lot of core pieces to positive COVID-19 cases the past week.
It’s hard to imagine San Antonio will be able to slow down the combination of James Harden and Kyrie Irving. The 17-12 Spurs have been a pleasant surprise this season, but without a star option to keep up with high-scoring Brooklyn, and this one projects to be an easy win for the Nets.
The 76ers have been the East’s best team this year, currently sitting in first in the conference with a 22-12 record. The strong start is thanks to Embiid, who is averaging an even 30 points per game to go along with 11.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.4 blocks.
His presence has been felt all over the court, and his shooting splits (54%, 42%, 86%) show a player finally making the leap many have expected of him.
The Pacers remain in the thick of the East race, but at 15-17, Indiana has lost three straight and eight of their last 11 games. This is a shorthanded team slipping, and until they get TJ Warren, Caris Levert and Malcolm Brogdon back, it should be more losses for Indiana.
Lock in the home Sixers as an easy choice for a win on Monday night.
