Last night we needed to rebound from a one-sided parlay loss on Tuesday night, attempting to regain our Parlay Blog Championship. We stayed with our South Beach vibes and predicted another series sweep in the conferences, going back-to-back with the Miami Heat and the Florida Panthers.
We successfully predicted Chucky and the Cats would win game four and eliminate one of the season-long Stanley Cup favorites, the Carolina Hurricanes, from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. With a 4-3 final score, we also successfully predicted the Canes’ would cover the 1.5 goal spread.
So far, so good, so what?
That same one-goal final score that gave us a win on the puck line spread also gave us another parlay loss, as we followed the head-to-head playoff trends and took the under of 5.5.
Again, so close, yet so far away.
With yesterday’s loss, our parlay record drops to 1-3 for the week, but we improve to 7-5 on individual picks for the week.
We’re returning to the multi-game parlay and predicting the NBA Finals and NHL Stanley Cup Finals matchups will be set when the night is over.
Vegas Golden Knights over Dallas Stars (+100)
Despite having a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals, the Vegas Golden Knights are still the underdog in game four.
The head-to-head series is tied 3-3. Dallas won the three regular season games, while Vegas won the three playoff matchups.
The Golden Knights are 6-1 in their previous seven road games.
We were very unimpressed with the Stars in game three, and while we expect Dallas and goalie Jake Oettinger to be better in game four, Vegas is the better, more connected team right now.
We’re taking VGK on the moneyline to eliminate the Dallas Stars from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Vegas Golden Knights versus Dallas Stars Under 5.5 (-120)
The first three games of this series have hit the under.
The under is 5-1 this season. The under is 7-0 in the previous seven games in Dallas.
We’re following the trends and taking the under in game four of the Western Conference Finals.
Miami Heat over Boston Celtics (+240)
We don’t think the Miami Heat will shoot as poorly from beyond the arc in game four as they did in game three. We also don’t think Miami will turn the ball over and for Boston to convert each turnover to points in a 16-0 run in the third quarter.
Boston is the more talented team and has a 36-14 home record compared to the Heat’s 22-27 road record.
Miami holds a 5-2 lead in the head-to-head this season, earning three of those wins in Boston.
We’re not betting against Playoff Jimmy and don’t think the Celtics will capture the same magic the Red Sox did in 2004.
No team in NBA history has ever overcome a 3-0 series deficit to win a series.
We’re taking the Heat to win and eliminate the Boston Celtics from the NBA playoffs.
