[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 -$33.55 payout differential. This month, we're -$37.10].


Game 1: San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder (-250), 8 p.m. EST

This pick comes down to one simple stat, home teams in the second game of a home-and-home series are 8-0 this season. Those teams are also 6-2 against the spread, but rather than risk that 25 percent chance of this parlay not working out, I'll simply take the Thunder moneyline in this one.

Game 2: Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Rams (-6.5, -135), 8:15 p.m. EST

For some reason, lots of bettors seem to have forgotten that the top seeds are usually better than their lower-seeded counterparts. It's likely because underdogs have dominated recently, covering in 10 straight games dating back to last season. With underdogs getting more spread betting tickets than ever before, I'm going against the public and taking the favorite here.


$10 Parlay Payout = $14.37
