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)

May the winners be yours!

Tulsa Golden 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 this one.

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 game.

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.

Free NBA Pick: Bulls -110

 

Dallas Cowboys at Arizona Cardinals

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 line.

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 over.

Take the Cowboys here as the Cardinals will have little interest in showing up.
