[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 1-6 in parlay bets with a -$22 payout differential. This month, we're +$8].


Game 1: Marshall Thundering Herd (-120) at Duquesne Dukes, 7:00 p.m. EST

Coming in at 17-7 against the spread as a favorite over the last two seasons, Marshall will look to notch a big win on the road in Pittsburgh tonight. The Thundering Herd have really taken it to subpar competition this season, with four of their five wins coming by 20 points or more. Duquesne was able to pad their record at 3-0 against cupcake opponents early on, but have since lost two of their last three against stiffer competition. 

Game 2: Denver Nuggets (-200) at Orlando Magic, 7:10 p.m. EST

After losing six of their previous seven games, the Nuggets have run wild on their opponents, winning six straight and scoring at least 100 points in all those games. The Nuggets have won five straight games over the Magic, covering the spread in each of them. That includes a 112-87 beatdown against the same Orlando team on Nov. 23. Not to mention, Orlando is playing their second game in as many nights.
