Sunday Funday: March 1st Edition (Home Dogs, XFL Parlays, eSports & NBA)

sunday funday xfl parlays esports college basketball nba

1. League Of Legends Latin America League – Counter Logic Gaming ML

Why It’s Fun: There is something so insanely degenerate about betting on guys playing video games in Latin America that I just can’t resist. What really sealed the deal was when I saw their team photo (above) and I instantly realized I found the funniest bet I could make this Sunday. The middle guy looks like Harry Potter if he got into energy drinks and dub step.

Why You Should Bet It: They’re a huge dog, I mean honestly how do you make anyone a three to one underdog if video games? Plus according to the one Google search I did before I made this bet the team Counter Logic Game is “the oldest League Of Legends team still active today.” You got to love the veteran experience they bring to the matchup.

Payout:  +325

2. St John’s ML

Why It’s Fun: It’s a perfect combination of an early tip off, a juicy home dog at and rooting against Blue Jays. I’ve always enjoyed rooting against any Blue Jay after what Joe Carter did to 1993 Phillies, damaging my childhood and ruining Lenny Dysktra’s last chance at a World Series. (Make sure to check out the Lenny Dykstra interview we did with him if you’ve missed it.)

Why You Should Bet It: St. John’s is 10-6-1 ATS at home this year and they’re a +200 ML dog against Creighton. Creighton has yet to be a home favorite and they’re laying 5.5? Sure Creighton is a top 10 right now but isn’t that a reason to bet against them? These top 10 teams keep losing outright.

Payout: +200

3. Sixers +12.5

Why It’s Fun: There will be nothing funnier than the Sixers winning without Embiid and Simmons. It will throw Philly sports talk radio into a tizzy as callers will begin making a case for trading both Embiid and Simmons now that the team showed they can without them.

Why You Should Bet It: The last time the Clippers played a Sunday game at 12:30 pm they barely beat the Knicks 135-132. The Clippers motivation will be at an all time low with the Sixers having their two biggest stars out. The Clippers will easily overlook their opponent and the Sixers will keep it close with scoring from Tobias Harris.

Payout: -110

4. XFL Parlay (HOU -3, D.C. -3, HOU vs DAL U 50.5, DC vs T.B. U 44.5)

Why It’s Fun: It’s a four team XFL PARLAY! If combining four separate XFL outcomes in a single day doesn’t excite you than can you honestly call yourself a #DegensOnly.

Why You Should Bet It: Well the two dogs hit on Saturday, so it means the two favorites will hit on Sunday. It’s just good science. HOU is far and away the best team in the league and D.C. is coming off an embarrassing loss and will rebound nicely against the venomless Vipers. Unders still going strong at 9-5, possible 10-4 depending on what you’re getting them at.

Payout: +1200
