Online Bookies Can Offer These Weekend Parlays For More Action

This weekend, May 5 and May 6, should be a busy one in most online bookie agent sportsbooks. The NBA Playoffs, NHL Playoffs, and a full slate of MLB games take place over the weekend.

Check out games online bookies should use in their promoted weekend parlays.

(Online bookies should also remember that the Kentucky Derby happens on May 5th, another solid way to make some serious cash this weekend!)

Saturday, May 5

NBA Playoffs

Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76’ers

Toronto Raptors at Cleveland Cavaliers

Per head agents should be comfortable putting either the C’s versus the 76’ers or the Raptors versus the Cavs in any promoted parlays. The reason? We’re now at the stage of the NBA Playoffs where bad against the spread lines shouldn’t exist.

NHL Playoffs

Pittsburgh Penguins at Washington Capitals

Winnipeg Jets at Nashville Predators

Pens versus Capitals is shaping up as one of those ridiculously tight series again. The Pens and Caps have had a sweet playoff rivalry the past couple of seasons.

To say that handicapping Pens at Caps is a challenge is an understatement. Bettors should have a difficult time with that game.

Winnipeg versus Nashville is no lock either way. The Jets can hang with the Preds. Not only that, but, like Pens at Caps, Winnipeg versus Nashville is the key Game 5 in the 7-game series.


Cleveland Indians at New York Yankees

Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals

Colorado Rockies at New York Mets

Cleveland starts Trevor Bauer. The Yankees start Sonny Gray. Who wins?

That’s just it, nobody can say for sure.

Cubs versus Cardinals is a rivalry game. Any time the Cubs face the Cardinals there’s no way to know for sure which team will come out on top.

Rockies at Mets should be impossible to handicap. The Rockies start Chad Bettis.  The Mets counter with Steven Matz.

Sunday, May 6

NBA Playoffs

Golden State Warriors at New Orleans Pelicans

Houston Rockets at Utah Jazz

Just like with Saturday’s NBA Playoff games, against the spread lines should be close to perfect on Golden State at New Orleans and Houston at Utah.

Remember, never add moneyline wagers to promoted parlays if you can add spread wagers.

NHL Playoffs

Boston Bruins at Tampa Bay Lightning

Vegas Golden Knights at San Jose Sharks

San Jose Sharks tied the series 2 to 2 on their May 2 battle. It’s been a back and forth matchup an looks to continue that way. No matter who wins Friday night’s game, they’ll be in for Game 6.

It’s certainly going to be a hard one to handicap, online bookies should make sure Vegas at San Jose on Sunday into their parlays.

Game 5 between the Bruins and Lightning takes place on Sunday, May 6. That’s a hockey match that online bookies should add to their promoted parlays too.


Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals

Pittsburgh Pirates at Milwaukee Brewers

Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals

Jake Arrieta is listed as the Phillies’ starter on Sunday. Washington lists Max Scherzer as their starter on Sunday. We’re talking two Cy Young Award winners battling it out on the mound.

No way to say for sure which team takes it.

Pirates at Brewers should be a hotly contested battle. Cubs at Cardinals will also be a tough game to handicap.

Don’t Forget—The 2018 Kentucky Derby, May 5th

The 2018 Kentucky Derby also happens on May 5th. Online bookies should absolutely be promoting their racebooks on top of the parlays above.

This will likely be the most action agents will see in their racebooks all year.
