Friday's NBA YOLO Bet of the Day: More Legs, More Fun

Great news, I've figured the whole YOLO parlay out. Just in time too since tonight is Friday and everyone knows the best time to win a YOLO parlay is on a Friday. Just amazing work by me. What I was doing wrong was I was taking three or four +300 or higher moves and tying them up. What I should have been doing was taking five or six or even seven +200 or lower moves and tying the up. Rookie mistake but it only took me six days to realize it though so that part is incredible. I would have figured it out sooner but I almost hit one of the impossible ones which is even more crazy. I'm just glad I got it all figured out so we can drop one of these.

6-Leg NBA Parlay (+28766)

Dejounte Murray Over 21.5 Points (+142)

This one is so simple yet it looks so dumb. It's perfect. The Spurs all have Covid. Pretty much all of them. I was going to throw Jakob in there too and you still can. If you play his 15+ points it takes this bad boy all the way up to +72344. That'll get you jacked up! Still, I think Murray is the way to go becuase the kid isn't afraid to shoot. He took 21 shots in his first game back from the Covid list. I don't see why he wouldn't do that again tonight. Even if the Spurs get waxed and he doesn't play the fourth quarter, he could still get home for us.

Jordan Nwora Over 16.5 Points (+148)

I would play this straight so it's not that crazy. In fact, it's so playable that it almost didn't even make this parlay. These big tickets are all full of dumb bets and this one really isn't that dumb. Until you think about the fact that it's Jordan Nwora and the average NBA casual has never even heard of this guy. Then it makes sense. The Bucks are signing all kinds of guys to hardship deals. They're pulling fans out of the stands to play at this point. Nwora should get minutes and that's all he needs. He's hit this number in four of his last five games for Christ's sake!

Jalen Green Over 18.5 Points (+168)

This has nothing to do with stats and everything to do with feeling. I know that's dumb but we can do that with this type of play. We threw smart out the window when we bet a +28766 six-leg parlay. You know it, I know it, the books know it. And that's fine. But this isn't that dumb. Green might be volatile but he's done this in four of his last six games. He gets the "B" side of the Mavericks tonight and he's at home. He can get 19.

Jarrett Allen Over 20.5 Points (+162)

The Cavaliers should roll the Portland Trail Blazers tonight and we can only hope Allen plays his full compliment of minutes. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum are still out so it's asking a lot of them to keep up with the suddenly kind of good Cavaliers. Especially since we're watching Jarett Allen go against Jusuf Nurkic again. If you remember last time, Allen ahould be in jail for what he did to poor Nurkic. He abused him to the tune of a 24 and 17 line. I bet he punks him again tonight. We just need 22 out Allen.

Josh Giddey Over 17.5 Rebounds + Assists (+174)

I hate betting these lines but it looks like it's in order. I'd almost bet it straight so it barely belongs in this parlay. It's just dumb enough to make the cut though. Nobody will accuse us of being smart for including it and the reason is simple. Why would anyone bet a rookie guard to have at least 18 rebounds plus assists? It sounds crazy but this kid is flying over this number on a nightly basis. We're talking at least 20 in each of his last three games. It looks like he either spikes in rebounds or assists but it's possible he spikes in both. I call that the jackpot. He could get this pretty easy.

De'Aaron Fox 25+ Points (+150)

This is the one I hate the most which means we have to put it in. I think the Kings are going to get waxed by the Denver Nuggets tonight but what if they don't? What if Fox plays his full minutes? I don't know what's gotten in to him, but he's shot the ball at least 21 times in each of his last two games. That's crazy. He doesn't do that very much. The thing is, it's working because he's scored 30 points in each of his last two games. I don't know if he can keep it up but we're just asking for 25 here. No big deal.
