Last night, we selected the Dallas Stars and Minnesota Wild to hit the over of 5.5 and mere feet away from Dallas scoring an empty net goal with seconds to go before Kirill Kaprizov swept the puck to safety and the game hitting the under with a 3-2 final score.
We also selected the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings to continue to hit the under of 237.5 total points. The Warriors defeated the Kings 126-125, hitting the over by 15.5 points, in an excellent ending to that game.
At least our black and gold safety blanket was reliable and kept us warm as the Boston Bruins defeated the Florida Panthers 6-2, as predicted.
Our winning ways did not last very long, but we’ve seemingly misplaced the parlay blog betting championship from its prominent spot in our place.
After ending last week’s run of tough, tough luck, a good individual picks record, and an incredible same-game parlay win, we’re returning to the multi-game parlay in search of a win after starting the week 0-1 on parlays and 1-2 on individual picks.
Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Lakers Under 221.0 (-115)
The Grizzlies are 39-45-1 over/under this season, while the Lakers are 44-40-1 over/under.
The over is 2-1 in the playoffs, while Memphis and Los Angeles have combined for a 2-4-1 over/under record in head-to-head matchups.
Notably, the total points line of 221.0 is the third consecutive game where the total points line has been dropped by one point, and game three ended with 221 total points scored.
The Lakers and Grizzlies have combined to hit the under in a significant manner in three of the last four games.
We’re taking the under of 221.0.
Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat Over 217.5 (-110)
Giannis Antetokounmpo’s status for game four is currently unknown. Whether Giannis plays in game four or not should play a factor in the Bucks and Heat hitting the over by a lot or missing the over altogether.
Both teams have 44-41 over/under records this season.
The over has hit in the previous five games and is 5-2 in the seven head-to-head matchups between the Bucks and Heat this season.
Miami has the unexpected 2-1 series lead, averaging 124.3 points per game, while the Bucks are averaging 118.0 points.
We’re taking the Heat and Bucks to hit the over, and they’ll hit that number quicker with Giannis in the lineup.
New York Rangers over New Jersey Devils (-159)
So far in the NHL playoffs, the New Jersey Devils have struggled, having scored four goals in three playoff games against Igor Shesterkin.
The Devils hold a 4-3 season series edge over the Rangers, and the underdog is 5-2 in the last seven meetings. However, New Jersey is 2-5 in the previous seven games in New York.
The Devils escaped game three with a win at Madison Square Garden to stay in the series, but their inability to score, mixed with an Igor Shesterkin, who looks sharp, and a playoff-experienced Rangers lineup, makes us lean toward the Rangers taking a 3-1 lead on home ice.
