I'll say this: I have never gotten as many emails for a BetMGM pick column as I did after Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. It's the first parlay that I've picked and boy, did we come close.

We had said to take Heat +8.5, Jimmy Butler over 25.5 points and Jaylen Brown over 23.5 points for Game 1.

Even though Brown shot horribly, h-2-same-game-parlay-pickl of allowing us to hit that parlay, finishing with 22 points. The Heat covered easily in a straight up win and Butler ended with 35.

I feel burned, but I'm going back to the well.

BetMGM on its same game parlay allows us to take Jaylen Brown's point total down to 21.5 — which we will gladly take, seeing as it's five points less than his season average.

And we're going to combine it with Kyle Lowry over 11.5 points.

Brown in his last four games against the Heat has scored 37, 26 and 28 and 22. Kyle Lowry has scored 20, 15, 17 and 15.

Brown had an off night, going 10-fe was within a field goarom three — and still scored 22.

Lowry couldn't be stopped. In his last four games against the Celtics, Lowry has shot 46% from the field, 6% better than his average. He has also shot 37.5% from three, 3% better than his average.

Lowry has great experience and he doesn't shy away from the big moment. There's enough talent on this Heat floor to allow him proper spacing for open shots.

Take over Jaylen Brown on 21.5 points and over on Kyle Lowry to score more than 11.5 points and get +240 at BetMGM.
