NBA on Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Best 5-Leg Parlay

We have 12 games on the docket for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Here is the best way to build out a 5-leg parlay on that day!

Brooklyn Nets vs Cleveland Cavaliers - Nets +2.5

The Brooklyn Nets suffered a tremendous blow when Kevin Durant went down with a knee injury. However, the Nets will have Kyrie Irving available for this one as well as James Harden.

The Nets desperately need wins as they find themselves just a half-game behind the Chicago Bulls for the first seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Nets still have two bonafide superstars in their lineup with a key game they need to win in order for them to lock down the top seed for the playoffs. Expect the Nets to come out on top behind the deadly scoring of Irving and Harden.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Atlanta Hawks - Bucks -4

The Atlanta Hawks have been a mess all season long, which presents a good opportunity for the Milwaukee Bucks to pounce and better their chances of landing the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

Giannis Antetokounmpo has been on absolute fire recently, as he’s averaging 32.3 points, 10.6 rebounds, 6.8 assists, and 1.3 blocks per game over his last 10 games.

Khris Middleton has been averaging 23.0 points, 6.8 assists, and 6.3 rebounds per game over his last six games as well.

Expect this duo to power the Bucks to a win in this one.

Phoenix Suns vs San Antonio Spurs - Suns -5

The Phoenix Suns have been on absolute fire recently, as they’ve won five of their last six games.

Devin Booker is coming off a 35 point performance in the Suns’ recent win, as he shot 6-of-13 from three.

Chris Paul has taken his playmaking skills to a whole new level, as he’s averaging 11.5 assists per game over his last six games.

With an average margin of victory being 17.2 points in their last five wins and in going up against one of the worst teams in the league in the San Antonio Spurs, the Suns should be able to win and cover the spread.

Miami Heat vs Toronto Raptors - Heat -4

The Miami Heat have been on fire recently, winning four of their last five games. 

Tyler Herro is really coming into his own, as he’s averaging 22.0 points, 4.6 assists, and 4.6 rebounds per game over his last five games.

Kyle Lowry could also come out and play with a little extra motivation, as he’ll be going up against his former team. Perhaps we could see him look to create his own offense even more in this game in addition to getting his teammates involved.

Expect the Heat to win and cover, as they look to make some noise in the standings.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Washington Wizards - Sixers -3

Joel Embiid has been on an absolute tear recently, as he’s averaging 31.8 points on over 55 percent shooting to go along with 10.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game.

As a result, the Sixers have won nine of their last 10 games, as their margin of victory has been 14 points.

In going up against the Washington Wizards, a team as inconsistent as they come and missing their best player in Bradley Beal, this should be a fairly easy game for the Sixers to come out on top in and cover the spread, especially when you consider that they’re pushing for one of the better playoff spots out East.
