[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 down $2].


Game 1: New York Knicks @ Boston Celtics (-1050), 8:00 p.m. EST

The Knicks shocked the Celtics back on Nov. 1, when New York upset a heavily-favored Boston team at TD Garden. The chances of this happening twice in less than three weeks? Well, they're probably somewhere in the range of a -1000 moneyline for the Celtics.

Game 2: Pepperdine Waves (-5.5, -110) @ Cal-Riverside Highlanders, 10 p.m. EST

The Duel's favorite left-coast basketball team is back on the hardwood and the 5.5-point spread should be easily attainable, even on the road. Pepperdine is coming off a loss in their last game -- a 17-2 run over six minutes in the second half was the difference in the seven-point loss to CSU-Northridge.

​​The most appealing part about Pepperdine is their potent scoring attack, averaging 84.4 points per game -- their opponent, Cal-Riverside, is only scoring 62.1 per game. Take Pepperdine minus the points.
