Last night, we built our multi-game parlay around two favorites and one over/under pick. While the Milwaukee Bucks and Detroit Pistons hit the over of 233.0 points, we were victimized by two upsets.
First, the Florida Panthers, who are chasing a Wild Card Spot, dropped the ball, losing 5-2 to the Ottawa Senators. Then, the “best team in the Western Conference,” the Sacramento Kings, lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Whether it’s the Boston Celtics or Sacramento Kings, we need to avoid these “best teams” in the NBA, as they seem to lose a lot when we pick them for our parlay.
After a disappointing Monday night of upsets, our weekly record is 0-2 and 3-3 on individual picks. However, we’re going back to the site of our greatest success: the same-game parlay.
