Yesterday, we had limited options to choose from for our multi-game parlay. In the end, we were close to regaining our parlay blog betting championship, but the NBA ended those hopes again.
Last night, our beloved Buffalo Sabres defeated the awful Columbus Blue Jackets while we said goodbye to our hometown Nashville Predators as they combined with the Colorado Avalanche to hit the over.
However, it was on the hardwood where our parlay fell apart. We expected the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat to get close to the total points and likely hit the over. They most certainly did not, combining for 193 total points.
We have four NBA playoff games to choose from for Saturday’s same-game parlay, and we’re going to a contentious parlay blog regular for the win.
Philadelphia 76ers over Brooklyn Nets (-370)
Philadelphia had a 29-12 record on home court this season, while Brooklyn was 22-19 on the road.
Both teams won three of the last five games heading into the playoffs.
The 76ers defeated the Nets in all four head-to-head meetings this season, including a 134-105 win in the final game of the regular season.
We’re taking Philly to start the playoffs right with a heavily favored home win.
Brooklyn Nets +8.5 over Philadelphia 76ers (-115)
Both teams were 5-5 ats in the final ten games of the regular season. However, the Nets are 4-1 ats in the last five games against Philly.
The 76ers are 1-4 ats when facing a 7.5 – 9.5 point spread as the favorite, while the Nets are 5-2 ats as the underdog.
Brooklyn had a 22-18-1 ats record on the road this season, while Philly had a 25-16 ats record at home.
We’ll take the Nets to keep this game under an 8.5-point spread.
Brooklyn Nets versus Philadelphia 76ers Over 215.0 (-110)
The 76ers averaged 115.2 points per game, shooting 48.7% from the field. The Nets averaged 113.4 points per game, shooting an identical 48.7% from the field.
Three of the four head-to-head matchups this season easily eclipsed a total points line of 215 points, with the only exception being a 76ers 101-98 win on February 11.
Brooklyn had a 43-38-1 over/under record this season, while Philadelphia had a 37-44-1 over/under record.
