With ten games on the schedule tonight, there’s a ton to sort through when trying to figure out the perfect NBA parlay. Here’s one to consider for tonight’s slate, built on the three interconference matchups tonight.
NBA Parlay Leg #1: Milwaukee Bucks Alternate Spread -20.0
Since the calendar flipped to 2023, no team in the NBA has been better than the Milwaukee Bucks, who used a 16-game winning streak to take control of the league’s top record this season. They have one of the toughest defenses in basketball, with an offense powered by superstar Giannis Antetokoumpo. At home, as they will be tonight, they are 29-7.
Enter the San Antonio Spurs, who have the third-worst record in the NBA this season and lost by 35 in New Orleans last night. The Spurs are 6-28 on the road and 11-23-0 in away games. Last night’s loss against a shorthanded Pelicans squad saw the Spurs rule out six players due to injury, many of whom are starters. Considering this is the second part of a back-to-back, many of them will probably be out again tonight.
Expect the Bucks to wax the Spurs tonight.
NBA Parlay Leg #2: Washington Wizards +8.0
The Washington Wizards have fallen out of their Eastern Conference play-in spot, and with only ten games remaining, every night, they’ll need to bring their best to get it back. Their dance partner is the Denver Nuggets, who are struggling lately and only 18-18 on the road this season.
Denver leads the Western Conference but is only 2-5 over their last seven games, five of which were on the road. One of those came against the worst team in the NBA record-wise, the Detroit Pistons. The Nuggets are scuffling, and Washington is desperate at this point of the season.
Washington has had their fair share of struggles lately, too. However, this is a game that they need against a team that also isn’t playing well. The Wizards should keep it close, if not win.
NBA Parlay Leg #3: Hawks @ Timberwolves 1st Quarter Over 62.5 Points
In Atlanta’s last five games, the first quarter has finished with an average of 71.6 total points. The lowest-scoring first in that stretch was against Minnesota, and that quarter ended with 69 points. The Hawks are putting up 36.8 points per first quarter in that span. This season they’ve been an offense-first, fast-paced team.
Minnesota is a defense-first team, but they also play at a fast pace. The Timberwolves put up 42 points in the first quarter of their game on Monday night. They may be getting reinforcements, too, with Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards both potentially returning tonight.
The first quarter of this game should have plenty of fireworks.
