Last night we successfully predicted the New York Knicks and Cleveland Cavaliers would hit the under, doing that in a major way, hitting the under by 33.5 points. We also successfully picked the Denver Nuggets to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves.
With four minutes left in the third period, it looked like Friday’s parlay and our latest attempt to regain our parlay blog betting championship would be decided in overtime.
Then with 3:51 left in the third period, the New York Islanders made history. The Islanders broke the record for the fastest four goals in NHL playoff history, scoring four goals in 2:18 – a record which stood since 1944 – defeating the Carolina Hurricanes 5-1.
As unbelievable as it seems, we’ve found another way to lose our highly-coveted championship: victimization through historic acts!
With yesterday’s parlay loss, we drop to 0-6 on the week but improve our individual picks record to 10-8.
Will another record-breaking performance happen in our same-game parlay, or will we finally regain our beloved championship belt? Here’s Saturday’s same-game parlay!
Los Angeles Lakers over Memphis Grizzlies (-189)
The Memphis Grizzlies didn’t need Ja Morant, and Dillion Brooks talked trash and got to the King, as the Grizzlies won game two of the series 103-93.
Memphis has a 16-25 record on the road, while Los Angeles has a 24-18 home record.
The Lakers won both games on home court this season against the Grizzlies. Los Angeles needs to win game three to take advantage of Morant and Steven Adams’s absences and take control of this series.
We’ll take the Lakers to win at home with Morant, a game-time decision, and Lebron James focused and seemingly motivated.
Los Angeles Lakers -4.5 over Memphis Grizzlies (-110)
The spread has been covered by the winning team in the previous six head-to-head matchups, with spreads from 1.0 to 9.0 total points.
The Grizzlies are 38-44-2 ats, while the Lakers are 41-42-1. Memphis is 2-5 ats in the previous seven games in Los Angeles.
We’re following the trends and taking the Lakers to win and cover the 4.5-point spread.
Memphis Grizzlies vs Los Angeles Kings Under 220.5 (-110)
The under is 15-5-1 in the last 21 head-to-head matchups between the Lakers and Grizzlies. Memphis and Los Angeles have a 2-3-1 over/under record in the six meetings this season.
The Grizzlies are averaging 102.5 points in the first two games of the series, while the Lakers have averaged 110.5 points.
Even if Anthony Davis gets going and contributes, we think this game is hitting the under.
If Ja Morant does play and is effective, this game could hit the over, like game one. But we’re taking the safer route: we’re assuming Morant will not play and for the Grizzlies and Lakers to hit the under.
