[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 $12].

Game 1: Philadelphia 76ers at Detroit Pistons (-1.5, -115), 7:00 p.m. EST

The Pistons are 9-4 at home this season, including six of their last seven at Little Caesars Arena. Led by Blake Griffin's 24.9 points per game, Detroit has won one of their last 10 overall. These teams have split the previous two contests this season with each team winning the game played on their home floor. With Joel Embiid out tonight, that's enough of a difference to take the Pistons minus the point-and-a-half at home.

Game 2: Memphis Grizzles at New Orleans Pelicans (-235), 8:00 p.m. EST
The Pelicans are 13-13 on the season, yet somehow that leaves them four spots out of the playoffs, despite just a half-game deficit behind the eighth-seeded Dallas Mavericks. New Orleans is 10-3 at home this year, including seven wins in their last nine. With just a 12-14 ATS record this season, let's kill the 5.5-point spread and just take Anthony Davis and the Pelicans to win straight up.
