Happy Friday. Yesterday was a big day. I went 2-1 NBA and 4-0 CBB with an additional college parlay hit. The Warriors blew the cross-league parlay when they let their halftime lead over the Knicks slip, but we can swallow that when the rest of the plays are 7-1. Let’s start the weekend off right with a good Friday night. Limited options as usual, but we’ll find some winners.
NBA record: 131-124-5 ATS (16-33 Underdog ML), 13-15-1 O/U, 3-5 parlay, 0-2 props
I really don’t like the board tonight, but here are two plays I feel good about –
- Bulls Timberwolves U241.5
This is just an absurdly high total. Both are averaging right around 112 points per game on the year, which leaves us 17 points short of 241. They have both been playing a ton of high-scoring games in recent weeks, including some that broke this total pretty easily. But I can’t pass up on the chance to bet an under 241.
- PARLAY: Sixers, Hornets, Hawks, and Jazz MLs (+108)
CBB record: 212-230-5 ATS (30-33 Underdog ML), 1-5 parlay
- Kent State +138
This is two top four teams in the MAC going to war. Kent State got past Akron with a double digit win almost a month ago, and they’ve won seven of eight with all seven wins coming by at least 8 points. I’ll take a shot on them at plus odds here.
- St Louis -5.5
Going on the road in A10 play hasn’t been good for St Bonaventure. They lost to Richmond by 10, George Mason by 9, and Dayton by 18. A St Louis team that’s 8-2 in conference play and 11-3 at home this year certainly falls in the same category as those three. The Billikens have won seven of eight with six of the wins coming by double digits.
- PARLAY: Oakland, St Louis, Wright State, Boise State, Iona, Utah State MLs (+316)
NBA/CBB PARLAYS: 4-8
