After watching the way the Brooklyn Nets took care of the Boston Celtics in Game 1, it’s clear the Nets are headed towards a 2-0 start. Since Brooklyn’s Moneyline is so lopsided this Tuesday, we’ve gone ahead and put together a two-team parlay to make your NBA playoff bet more worthwhile.

The Brooklyn Nets put on a show in Game 1 of their First Round series versus the Boston Celtics, delivering a lopsided 104-93 finish. Kevin Durant played lights out as he finished with 32 points, 12 rebounds, and 1 block. Kyrie Irving nearly had 30 on the night as his stat sheet read 29 points, 6 rebounds, and 1 assist. Jayson Tatum had the biggest night for Boston. He would go on to finish Game 1 with 22 points, 3 rebounds, and 5 assists.
Game 1’s loss marked the fourth time this season that the Nets have faced off against Boston. So far, Brookly is 0 for four and is set to suffer another defeat at the hands of the Celts this Tuesday night.
Game 2’s money line is lopsided for a reason but those odds can be boosted with a multi-sport parlay.
NBA Pick: Nets 116, Celtics 107
Atlanta Braves vs Boston Red Sox – Tuesday
When: 7:10 p.m. ET
Where: Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts
MLB Odds: Atlanta Braves -105 || Boston Red Sox -105
Tuesday’s Atlanta Braves vs Boston Red Sox pairing should be a thriller. The Braves are in contention for the top spot in the NL East with their 23-24 record and will have to face off against the 2nd best team in the AL East. Right now the Sox, with their 29-19 record, are but a ½-game behind the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays.
To try and usurp Tampa Bay, the Red Sox will be sending Garrett Richards to the mound this Tuesday. The RHP enters with a 4-2 record, a 3.72 ERA, and a 1.47 WHIP. Richards will be going up against RHP Charlie Morton, who is 2-2 on the year and sports a 4.60 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. There’s no question that Richards comes in with the better numbers and it’s clear he’s finding more success this season.
Batting wise the Braves and the Red Sox rank amongst the MLB elite, with Boston faring better than Atlanta. Currently, the Red Sox are tied for first in the MLB with 249 runs, are 1st in slugging (.450), and have the 2nd best batting average (.263) in the league. Atlanta’s numbers are good but they’re not that good. Right now the Braves are 5th in the MLB in runs, 14th in batting average, and 2nd in slugging percentage. If those numbers hold up this Tuesday evening, the Braves should come up short on the road.
MLB Pick: Red Sox 6, Braves 3
