The thing about same-game parlays is when they hit, it’s the most glorious win. When a same-game parlay misses, it’s an unmitigated disaster. Last night’s same-game parlay was an unmitigated disaster.
Yesterday, we built our same-game parlay around the Carolina Hurricanes, eliminating the New York Islanders from the playoffs, covering the spread, and hitting the over. The Hurricanes didn’t do as predicted, as the New York Islanders won 3-2.
Due to the disaster that was our same-game parlay, our weekly record drops to 0-3, while we are a horrible 2-7 on individual picks thanks to the Hurricanes failing to be awesome as predicted.
We’ve been forced to hand over our hidden parlay blog betting championship belt because of the Hurricanes. However, we’re confident we’ll win the title back with today’s multi-game parlay. That is, as long as the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies don’t go to overtime again.
Los Angeles Lakers versus Memphis Grizzlies Under 220 (-115)
This pick looks familiar.
As mentioned yesterday, the Lakers and Grizzlies needed overtime to hit the over in game four by 4.0 points. The Lakers and Grizzlies have combined for a 2-2 over/under record in the playoffs and have a 2-4-1 over/under record this season.
The Lakers have a 45-40-1 over/under record, while the Grizzlies have a 40-45-1 over/under record.
Los Angeles is averaging 112.5 points per game in the playoffs, while Memphis is averaging 106.75 points.
We’re taking the Lakers and Grizzlies to hit the under for the third time in the series.
Golden State Warriors over Sacramento Kings (-130)
The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings first-round series has been phenomenal.
However, it’s the combination of De’Aaron Fox’s finger injury and the Warriors’ reputation and championship lineage that has Golden State favored on the road.
The 2022-23 Golden State Warriors should not be a favorite on the road, having posted an 11-32 road record this season. However, for the Warriors to win this series, they’ll need a win on the road in Sacramento, where the Kings have a 25-18 record.
While we want to pick the Kings to light the beam as the home underdog, the injury to Fox’s shooting hand will affect his efficiency and the Kings’ offense too much in game five to overcome the Warriors.
Colorado Avalanche over Seattle Kraken (-179)
The Avalanche will be without Valeri Nichuskin for personal reasons, while defenseman Cale Makar will be serving a one-game suspension for a hit on Kraken leading scorer Jared McCann, who is out with a head injury.
The Kraken hold the season series advantage 4-3. The underdog is 6-2 in the last previous eight games, and the road team is 5-2 in the previous seven. Seattle had a 26-11-4 road record, while the Avs had a 22-13-6 home record.
Despite these trends, we’re taking the Colorado Avalanche to win on home ice and take a 3-2 series lead as we have more belief in the Avs and Alexandar Georgiev over the scoring-by-committee Kraken and Philipp Grubauer.
