This is the section of the blog where we usually write about how close we came but ultimately fell short. Rarely do we get to celebrate overwhelming victories and parade around the ring with the parlay blog betting championship.
However, this Sunday morning in April, we’re tempted to write “We did it y’all!” about 400 times and leave it at that.
We won’t do that, but we sublimely raise our newly won parlay blog championship belt under the spotlight as the crowd acknowledges us as the NEW champion!
Last night, we built our same-game parlay around the Los Angeles Lakers and our home state Memphis Grizzlies. With a 111-101 final score, we successfully predicted the Lakers would win, cover a 4.5-point spread, and the game would hit under 220.5 points. That’s called a parlay win.
As the reigning, defending parlay blog champions, we must inform you that we finished last week with a 1-6 parlay record but a 13-8 record on individual picks.
As you know, we’re fighting champions and have cooked up this Sunday parlay in defense of our totally real, not made-up-for-story parlay blog betting championship!
Boston Bruins over Florida Panthers (-159)
Where better to turn to for leg one of our title defense than our black and gold safety blanket?
The Boston Bruins enter game four of their series with the Florida Panthers with a 2-1 series lead. We thought Boston would be more significant favorites for game four.
However, since October 2022, the Bruins and Panthers have traded wins back and forth. Considering the Bruins won the last game, it’s the Panthers’ turn to win if this trend is to continue.
Yet, trends exist to be broken. The trend of the home team winning ended at eight games during game two.
Boston is 17-2 in the previous 19 games. The Panthers are 1-4 in their last five games.
We’re taking the Bruins to win, taking a 3-1 series lead.
Sacramento Kings versus Golden State Warriors Under 237.5 (-110)
The Sacramento Kings got a taste of life on the road in the NBA playoffs in game three, losing to the dynastic Golden State Warriors 114-97.
While we don’t know how the Kings will bounce back in game four, we know that four of the last six games between the Kings and Warriors have hit the under (1-4-1) over/under record, with hitting the under in three games with total points of 235.5 or higher.
Only game one of this series and a matchup on October 23 have hit the over between the Kings and Warriors this season.
The Kings’ fast-paced offense was inefficient, and the team was overwhelmed by the moment in game three. Even still, these two teams hit the under by 30 points in game three.
Unless both teams have excellent shooting efficiency, we don’t see them touching 237.5 total points. We’re taking the under.
Dallas Stars versus Minnesota Wild Over 5.5 (+100)
Will the Minnesota Wild actually maintain their goaltending rotation, or will they start their best goalie?
Will the Dallas Stars offense crack Filip Gustavsson if the Wild start the goalie with a 1.18 GAA and a .961 SV% in two winning efforts this post-season?
Or will Minnesota follow the script from game two, eschew winning momentum and a hot goalie to start a future hall of famer like Marc-Andre Fleury, and risk another blowout loss in the playoffs?
While we don’t know these answers, we do know that the Wild and Stars have combined for a 3-4 over/under record this season and have hit the over in the last two games. Regardless of who is in the net for the Minnesota Wild, we expect this game to barely hit the over.
Considering the parity in the NHL and NBA this season, we expect the Dallas Stars to even up the series tonight with a 4-2 win.
