After an excruciating wait, especially for Denver Nuggets fans, the NBA Finals finally began last night, and we built our same-game parlay around a Denver Nuggets win.
The Denver Nuggets were in control throughout the entire game, the Heat don’t have an answer for Nikola Jokič, and Playoff Jimmy and the Butlerettes weren’t very good, even with open looks.
Last night, we took the easy layup and picked the Denver Nuggets to win game one of the NBA Finals, which they did with a 104-93 final score. While we’re happy to take the win, that’s the only win we had last night.
We selected the Heat to cover the spread of +9, which they did not do. We also picked the over of 219.0 total points, following the head-to-head trends, and with 197 total points scored, game 1’s final score wasn’t in the same zip code as the total points.
With yesterday’s 1-2 result, our parlay record stands at 0-5, with a 3-12 record on individual picks.
With the start of the Stanley Cup Finals another day away, we’re returning to MLB for Friday’s multi-game parlay.
San Francisco Giants over Baltimore Orioles (-169)
Baltimore has a 35-21 record, with an incredible 18-9 road record. San Francisco has a 28-28 record with a 16-13 record.
Both squads have a 2-3 record in the last five games.
Considering these two teams have not played since 2019 and haven’t played in San Francisco since 2016, there isn’t much head-to-head data.
We’re going to take the home team who didn’t travel across the country to win game one of the series. Take the Giants.
Milwaukee Brewers versus Cincinnati Reds Under 10.0 (-115)
Milwaukee has a 24-30-2 over/under record, while Cincinnati is 32-24-0 over/under. The Brewers have a 1-3-1 over/under record in the last five games, while the Reds are 4-1 over/under in the previous five games and 8-2 over/under in the last ten.
The Brewers are averaging 4.04 runs/9 innings, while the Reds are averaging 4.72 runs/9 innings.
We’re thinking the first game of this series will finish under 10.0 total runs.
Houston Astros over Los Angeles Angels (-141)
The Astros have a 33-23 record and are 16-13 at home, while the Angels are 30-28 and 15-15 on the road.
Houston has won three of the last five games, including defeating Los Angeles 5-2 last night. The Angels are 2-3 in the last five games.
Historically speaking, the Angels haven’t had much success against the World Series-contending Astros, with a 24-51 record in the last 75 meetings in Houston.
We’re taking the Astros to win a second straight game over the Angels.
