[The Duel will come out with a $10 parlay angle every day, tracking success on a rolling seven-day span. In the last seven days, The Duel staff has gone 0-7 in parlay bets with a -$70 payout differential. Overall, we're -$53.22].
Today we introduce a spin on Parlay All-Day, called Teaser
Game 1: Philadelphia 76ers @ Detroit Pistons (Teased +5 points to Pistons +6), 7:10 p.m. EST
Ben Simmons is doubtful for tonight's game. Even if he does suit up, he won't be 100 percent. The Pistons are much better than people give them credit for and the Sixers are not. The Sixers lack depth and if Simmons can't go, that issue will be glaring tonight.
The Pistons are 2-0 on the year, including a divisional road win against the Bulls. The Sixers are coming off a one-point win against a lowly Orlando Magic team in Philly. One team is on the road without their best player and has been underwhelming. The other is at home and playing above expectations. Take the Pistons and the points.
Game 2: LA Clippers @ New Orleans Pelicans (Teased 5 points to Pelicans -1.5) 8:10 p.m. EST
Anthony Davis looks like he's on an MVP mission. Just a few games into the season, Pelicans fans are already saying "Boogie who?"
With the emergence and early domination of both Nikola Mirotic and Julius Randle, the Pelicans look like the best NBA team Anthony Davis has ever been a part of, a good sign for those who want to see him stay in town.
The Pelicans offense has been out of this world through the first two games, lighting up the Rockets and the Kings for 131 and 149 points, respectively. Those are mid-2000's Phoenix Suns numbers. If you're averaging 140 points a game, like the Pelicans are, you're not taking many L's, if any. Grab the Pelicans for a mere -1.5 at home against a far less talented Clippers team.
Game 3: Sacramento Kings @ Denver Nuggets (Teased 5 points to Nuggets -6) 9:00 p.m. EST
As mentioned, the Kings got absolutely torched by the Pelicans this week. Despite the Kings averaging 125 ppg as a team, the Nuggets only allow 95.7 ppg. Everyone knows road teams struggle when they come into Denver.
Denver is a legitimate team this year. They have the talent to finish as high as a three seed in the west and make some noise in the playoffs. They are 3-0 and Nikola Jokic looks like he'll be battling with Anthony Davis for the MVP award all year.
Take Denver at home against a still bad Kings team in a building where everyone struggles to score beside the Nuggets.
