Unlike the NBA, we’re taking a one-day break on Christmas
with our daily three-team parlay but we’ve got a couple of tomorrow’s contests
parlayed in with the Hawaii Bowl tonight.
Parlay Record: 7-26 (+9036.34)
Overall Record: 58-38 (+948.00)
May the winners be yours!
Hurricane vs Hawaii Warriors
Sometimes when you show up late to a party, you miss all
of the hors d’oeuvres. In this case, we’re hoping that we still get to take the
girl home even though we missed the early festivities.
No, I haven’t been drinking too much alcohol-infused
eggnog yet. What I’m referring to is the fact that the over is going to be our
play in the Tulsa-Hawaii game tonight, but we’d rather have the early line on
the total before it started to climb.
Both the Hawaii Warriors and Tulsa Golden Hurricane are
two explosive offenses. There’s no question that they can hit the over in this
game. One of the reasons they probably will is because both teams are passing
oriented and neither really runs the ball.
The Warriors have scored 165 in their last three games
and have scored 45 or more in five of its last six. Meanwhile, Tulsa isn’t too
shabby themselves. They are fifth in the nation in total offense and are coming
off a 56-50 win over Southern Miss.
Even though we’re late to the party, play the over in

Chicago Bulls at
New York Knicks
Putting aside the fact that these teams have to play at
12:00 PM ET on Christmas Day, the Chicago Bulls should be in good shape to earn
a victory on Saturday.
The Bulls were roughed up in the first meeting this
season as they gave up a season-high 120 points – including 16 three-pointers –
in a 120-112 loss at the United Center on at the start of November.
In that game the Bulls were without forward Carlos Boozer
but he’s back now and he’s helped key a stretch of 10 wins in 11 games.
The Bulls are playing excellent defense right now and
that won’t mesh well with the Knicks, who prefer to run and gun, and get easy
baskets. In their last 10 games, they are holding opponents to 87.7 points per
The Knicks are stumbling a bit, losing three of their
last four games. While we don’t have a spread yet, take the Bulls on the spread
when the line opens up as they should earn some revenge.

Dallas Cowboys at
On Saturday, we’ll get a real treat from the NFL as the
Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals square off in the desert with nothing on
The Cowboys are laying seven points on the road and had
you said that about two months ago, somebody would have handed you a
breathalyzer. But the truth is that the Cowboys have been competitive under
interim head coach Jason Garrett and they have shown far more signs of life
than the Cardinals.
The Cowboys have won four of six with their only two
losses coming against the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints, two NFC
playoff teams. They lost 30-27 in both games.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals have tapped out. They managed to
end an ugly losing streak with a home win over the Denver Broncos two weeks
ago, but they swiftly followed that up with a one-sided loss in Carolina. The
Cards have lost eight of their last nine games.
Rookie quarterback John Skelton is completing just 46.1%
of his passes and he’s thrown for just 387 yards, zero touchdowns and one
interception through two starts.
At the very least, the Cowboys can move the ball on
offense and haven’t scored less than 27 points in a game since Garrett took
Take the Cowboys here as the Cardinals will have little
interest in showing up.
