Yesterday, we put our hopes, dreams, desires, and ambitions to win on the shoulders of the Vegas Golden Knights in our same-game parlay. The Golden Knights delivered, defeating the Winnipeg Jets 4-1, winning the Western Conference Quarterfinals series 4-1, and leaving the Jets to consider their free fall in the second half of the season.
We successfully picked the Golden Knights to win on the money line and cover the spread, but the total goals line was 5.5, and we followed the season-long trend between the two squads and took the over.
That bleeping hook! Another so-close-it-burns-and-hurts parlay loss drops our weekly record to 0-5, while our record on individual picks improves to 6-9.
We’re getting back to .500 on individual picks and regaining our championship with Friday’s multi-game parlay, with familiar names and a team’s season-ending in every leg.
Sacramento Kings versus Golden State Warriors Over 234.5 (-115)
The Golden State Warriors and their 35-8 home record are likely ending the Sacramento Kings season tonight and are significant favorites to do so. We’re focusing on the over/under in game six.
The Kings and Warriors have hit the over in the last two games and three of the previous five, each having a total points line of 233.5 or higher. Sacramento and Golden State have combined for a 3-2 over/under record in this series.
The Warriors are averaging 118.4 ppg, while the Kings are averaging 115.6 ppg.
We think both teams will have good shooting efficiency from the field, and this game will hit the over by 5.5 to 7.5 points.
Boston Bruins over Florida Panthers (-179)
Our black-and-gold safety net was close to ending this series in game five, playing from behind, but outplaying the Florida Panthers, but losing in overtime. Boston has outplayed the Panthers for the last three games and four of the five games in this series.
Boston holds a 5-4 head-to-head season series advantage.
The Bruins have a better road record compared to the Panthers’ home record, and the road team has won the last four games.
The best team in hockey ends Florida’s season tonight.
Seattle Kraken over Colorado Avalanche (+120)
Yes, you read that right. We’re siding with our arch-nemesis from the sea, the Seattle Kraken, over the defending Stanley Cup champion Colorado Avalanche.
Yes, the same Avalanche team we’ve talked up all season. The same Colorado squad that has remained a betting favorite to win the Stanley Cup all season, despite their tumultuous year. In fact, the Kraken have a 3-2 series lead, but the Avs still have better odds to win the Stanley Cup, with Colorado listed at +1400 and Seattle at +2250.
We’re not turning our backs on the Avs; the Kraken might have the Avs number. Seattle holds the head-to-head season series lead 5-3. The underdog is 7-2 in the previous nine matchups.
However, Colorado has a better road record compared to Seattle’s home record, and the road team is 6-2 in the previous eight meetings.
Seattle’s style of play has given Colorado fits through five games. The underdog from the deep sea might have the defending champs number.
Goodbye, Colorado Avalanche. Unbelievably, we’re taking our arch-nemesis, the Seattle Kraken.
