Yesterday’s same game parlay was built around one of two NBA matchups, and we took the challenge head-on, picking home favorite Milwaukee Bucks to win and cover the spread over the Boston Celtics, with the game hitting the over of 236 points.
Again, we went 1-2 on our individual picks, as the Celtics beat the Bucks 140-99. Thanks for showing up, Milwaukee. At least the game hit the over.
The Bucks’ loss drops our weekly parlay record to a shameful 0-5 and 5-10 on individual picks. Today, we return to the multi-game parlay, desperate for a win, wondering if we’ll ever see our beloved parlay blog championship again.
Let’s have fun and take some chances with this parlay.
New York Rangers versus Buffalo Sabres Over 7.0 (+105)
It appears neither the Sabres nor Rangers will be starting their number one goalies tonight.
The Sabres remain in the top three in scoring in the NHL and are 6-2-2 over/under in the last ten. The Rangers average 3.3 goals per game and are 3-6-1 over/under in the last ten.
Although the under is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings, including their one matchup this season, these are different rosters, and with two backup goalies in the net, we think this one hits the over.
Detroit Red Wings over Winnipeg Jets (+185)
The Jets are in a tailspin of doom as the playoffs approach.
Winnipeg was once challenging for the Central Division lead and is now barely hanging on to a playoff spot, having lost two straight, three of the last five, and going 5-5 in the last ten.
Detroit has won two straight but is 4-6 in the last ten. Detroit won the first game 7-5 on January 10th, and with the pressure mounting on Winnipeg, the Red Wings will get their second win of the season over the Jets.
Detroit Pistons over Houston Rockets (+175)
In a battle between the absolute worst teams in the NBA, we’re smelling an upset and taking the Pistons.
Both teams are riding seven-game losing streaks. Detroit is 1-9 in the last ten games, while Houston is 3-7 in the last ten.
Houston narrowly won the only other meeting this season 117-114 on January 28th. Houston is 12-26 at home, while Detroit is 7-30 on the road.
Change the recent records and the quality of the teams, and you have a home favorite that should win. However, similar logic failed us last night. Let’s have fun and take the road underdog to get a rare win.
