The Parlay Kid
Jonathan Taylor Over 82.5 yards Rushing and Receiving
Taylor is averaging about 113 yards rushing and receiving per game so this number seems way too low. The Colts offense has been much better the past few games so no reason for Taylor not to continue to be the focal point. Let’s not complicate things and keep this winning streak going.
Kansas City Chiefs/Tennessee Titans Over 57.5
In the last 2 games these two squads have faced off the game has been over 58 points both times. Tennessee’s Derick Henry has been dominant and will get “his” against a defense that has given up 29 points or more in all but 1 game. The Chiefs and Patty Mahomes will go for back-to-back 30 points or more for 2 straight weeks after this shootout.
Boston Celtics -5
The Celtics couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start, but the blowout loss to the Raptors was probably a hangover from the opening night double OT loss. I can’t imagine this Rockets team beating many good teams this season. With the Rockets coming off a blowout win, this only makes sense that the Celtics bounce back in this spot. Celtics -5!
Oklahoma State +7.5
This is definitely an interesting line, with a top 10 team getting 7.5 vs. an unranked team. The Big 12 matchups between the best teams are always close. Sanders is 2-0 in this matchup against Purdy. 7.5 is just way too many here. I also like Sanders to score a rushing TD at +230, as he’s done it in 3 of his last 4 games.
The Parlay Kid
Atlanta Braves to Win
The Braves do not want this to go seven and know they got to wrap it up tonight behind the arm of Ian Anderson who will look to rebound from a subpar game two performance. The Braves will send the reigning champs packing with a huge win tonight.
LSU/Ole Miss Over 76.5
LSU has had its issues this season on the road and has given up an average of 36 points a game away from Death Valley. Mississippi QB Matt Corral is still at the top of the list for the Heisman Trophy based on his 22 total touchdowns. The Rebels have been a scoring machine at home and the lowest they have scored in Oxford this season is 43 points.
Los Angeles Kings/Dallas Stars Under 5.5
Both these teams play slow-down hockey and emphasize playing solid defense. In the Kings first 3 games, their games are averaging 5 goals a game. As for the Stars in all 4 games this year neither team has reached 4 goals in those games. I expect a slowdown game in Dallas on Friday night between these defensive teams.
Houston Astros/Boston Red Sox Over 8.5
Am I missing something? Is this a 7 inning game? This line seems really low. Every game of this series has had 9+ runs. In fact, both teams have played in 8 straight games with 9+ runs in it. Garcia has given up 16 earned runs in his last 8 2/3 innings. These lineups are both too good. Go O8.5!
The Parlay Kid
Evan Fournier Over 15.5 Points
I hit the over 15 with Fournier in game one and although his legs will be tired after that grueling affair Fournier will be determined to put on a display versus the team he spent almost seven years with, the Orlando Magic. In his one appearance in Orlando as a Celtic, Fournier put up 18. Expect maybe a bit more this time around.
