Sometimes you need to shake it up to find success.
Last night, we crafted a multi-game parlay using all moneyline wagers, and it was another situation of so close yet so far away.
We selected the Los Angeles Lakers to win on home court and eliminate the Golden State Warriors, which the Lakers did with a 122-101 win.
We selected the Florida Panthers to eliminate the Toronto Maple Leafs from the playoffs for our second leg. While the game had its issues, the Florida Panthers won 3-2 in overtime, confirming that the Toronto Maple Leafs still suck, will always suck, and must wait a little longer before planning the parade route down Queen St West or Dundas.
In our third leg, we appealed to the Kings of the North again, but we fear the McDavids of the North aren’t getting the right signals. Last night, we asked the Kings of the Over to give us a moneyline win, yet they replied with a push on the over, losing to the Vegas Golden Knights 4-3.
We hang our heads in shame as our weekly parlay record drops to 0-6 while improving to 7-11 on individual picks.
We’re closing out our week chasing our championship belt with a same-game parlay and have two playoff games to choose from: one featuring the parlay blog arch-nemesis or one featuring two teams we can never get a read on.
Which way shall we go?
