[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 4-3 in parlay bets with a +$150.5 payout differential.]


Game 1: Philadelphia 76ers @ Phoenix Suns (+5, -110) 9:10 p.m. EST

The Sixers are on the wrong end of back-to-back games and a stretch of three games in four nights. With Jimmy Butler questionable after last night's ejection and a strange line, only favoring the 76ers by five points, take the Suns, who quietly aren't that bad at covering the spread when playing in their home building.

Game 2:  Miami Heat @ Cleveland Cavaliers (+6, -110), 7:10 p.m. EST

Yes, the Cavs have been struggling and are losers of six straight games, but six points is too many against a Miami Heat team that is quite bad themselves. It's coming to the point of getting a win for pride's sake tonight in Cleveland for the Cavs. They will be looking to avenge a blowout loss suffered to this same Miami team less than a week ago. With three full days of rest coming into this game, Cleveland has no excuse to not cover the spread on their home floor.  

Game 3: Dallas Mavericks @ Charlotte Hornets (-1, -110), 7:10 p.m. EST

Dallas shows up here yet again because of their terrible road record. Coming into tonight's game at Charlotte, the Mavericks are 2-16 away from Dallas this season. Not even ​Rookie of the Year favorite Luka Doncic can seem to carry them to victory away from home. The Mavs haven't won a road game since Nov. 28 when they beat the Rockets in Houston. Charlotte is coming off a dominating win against the Magic and should be able to carry the momentum into this matchup.
