We did it again, y’all! The Buffalo Sabres defeated the Nashville Predators 5-3, covering the spread, hitting the over, and making our same game parlay hit in the process. As for our NFL parlay, we’re 1-0, thanks to a tremendous second-half comeback by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
That brings our daily parlay record to 2-3 this week and 9-7 on individual picks. While we have the Buffalo Bills scoring a billion points and covering the spread against the Miami Dolphins today, we’re looking through the NHL and NBA schedules for Sunday’s multi-game parlay.
Vancouver Canucks to cover (+1.5) vs. Carolina Hurricanes (-115)
There are only three NHL games on the schedule today, with each game featuring a heavy moneyline favorite. The Carolina Hurricanes have won their last two games, six of their last ten, and sit atop the Metropolitan Division. The Vancouver Cancuks haven’t been good all season and have lost four straight games and seven of the last ten games.
The Hurricanes might not have the best record against the spread this season (17-26). Still, they have significantly better goaltending and match up well defensively against the Canucks, who can score goals, ranked eighth, averaging 3.4 goals per game. The Canucks are 0-5 in the last five games in Carolina, while the favorite is 5-2 in the last seven matchups overall.
The Canucks have lost three straight one-goal games, have a 21-21 ats record, and lost to the Hurricanes 3-2 back on October 24th. The Hurricanes will win this game, but the Canucks will cover the spread in a losing effort.
Brooklyn Nets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder – Under 230 points (-110)
OKC has won four of the last five games and has covered the spread in all five games. Brooklyn has won three of the last five games but eight of the last ten, only covering the +5 point spread in two of the last five games. OKC could cover the spread in this game, but we’re taking a different betting approach.
Considering OKC has hit the over in seven straight games, including three over/under totals of 230 points or higher. Betting trends suggest taking the over, but the Nets have hit the under in the last four games, and in four of the last five games with a 230-point or higher total,
Brooklyn’s field-goal percentage was down in their first game without Kevin Durant, dropping from 51.3% against the Miami Heat with Durant to 45.2% against the Boston Celtics without Durant.
OKC is playing great basketball and will do its part to hit the number, but we don’t think Brooklyn will. We’re going against the betting trends and taking the Nets vs. Thunder to hit the under of 230 points.
Denver Nuggets -10.5 over Orlando Magic (-110)
The last time the Magic and Nuggets met was on February 14th, 2022, and Denver was an 11.5-point favorite and missed covering the spread by 1.5 points. The Nuggets are 5-0 against the spread in the last five games and have covered the last two double-digit spreads they were up against.
Orlando is 3-1-2 ats in the last six meetings with Denver and 6-1 against the spread in the last seven road games against a team with a winning home record. However, Denver has won five straight games, winning by at least an 11-point spread in all five games and a double-digit spread in six of the last eight wins.
We’re taking the Denver Nuggets to cover the -10.5 spread, winning by 11 or 12 points in the end.
