Both the NBA Finals and Stanley Cup Finals' series are tied going into their pivotal Game 3 and Game 5, respectively.

The Golden State Warriors (-290) and Boston Bruins (-156) remain the favorites in each series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. The current state of each championship series creates some varying parlay options, depending on the combination.

While the safe bet is to take the two favorites at +120, it's intriguing that you can parlay the two teams that entered the series with home advantage, the Boston Bruins and Toronto Raptors, at +441. Currently, however, the Warriors hold home-court advantage after stealing Game 2 in Toronto. The Bruins have retained home-ice against the St. Louis Blues in their 2-2 series heading into Game 5 in Boston.

For NBA Finals Game 3, the Warriors will be without Kevin Durant and Kevon Looney, while Klay Thompson remains a game-time decision following the hamstring injury he sustained in Game 2.

The Blues are riding the momentum of a 4-2 win at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis. Bruins captain Zdeno Chara's status for Game 5 is up in the air, after the defenseman broke his jaw in Game 4.
