Yesterday, we built our same-game parlay around game two of the Colorado Avalanche vs Seattle Kraken series, hoping to grab our long-missing parlay blog betting championship belt and run away with it.
Once again, it was so close, yet so far away.
The Colorado Avalanche defeated the Seattle Kraken 3-2 to even their Stanley Cup playoff series at 1-1. We successfully predicted that the Avs would win and even the series on home ice while successfully picking the Kraken to cover the 1.5-goal spread.
However, we expected one more goal from each team and picked the Avs and Kraken to hit the over of 6.0, and with only five total goals scored, that’s a losing pick.
With another close but no cigar result, our weekly parlay record drops to 0-5, but we improve to 8-7 on individual picks.
Never deterred and always set to a hard difficulty level, here is our multi-game parlay for Friday’s playoff action.
Cleveland Cavaliers vs New York Knicks O/U 211.5 (-110)
The Cleveland Cavaliers have a 40-44 over/under record, while the New York Knicks have a 44-39-1 over/under record.
The first two games of this series didn’t breach the 200-point plateau, with 198 total points scored in game one and 197 total points in game two.
The Cavaliers and Knicks have a 2-4 over/under record in six head-to-head meetings this season, with all four games hitting the under ending with under 211.5 points.
We’re taking Cleveland and New York to hit the under.
Carolina Hurricanes over New York Islanders (-105)
The Carolina Hurricanes have won five consecutive head-to-head meetings with the New York Islanders this season. However, the last three games have all ended in one-goal games.
The Hurricanes are 16-3 in the last 21 head-to-head meetings and 23-7 in the previous 30 meetings in New York.
However, the favorite is 5-0 in the previous five meetings. The Islanders are favored on home ice, but we’re taking the value with the Hurricanes and think they’ll sweep this series or win in five.
Denver Nuggets vs Minnesota Timberwolves (-141)
Much like we’re thinking there is going to be a first-round sweep in the Hurricanes vs Islanders series, we think the Denver Nuggets are going to sweep the Minnesota Timberwolves out of the NBA playoffs.
Denver has won three-straight head-to-head matchups with Minnesota and has a 4-2 record against the Timberwolves this season. The Nuggets have a 19-22 record, while the Timberwolves have a 23-19 home record.
However, neither of the first two games of this series was close, with Denver winning by double-digits. The Wolves might be better on home court, but Denver is the far better team.
Take Denver with pretty good value to win their fourth straight game against Minnesota.
