It's been a half century since the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl. In fact, it's been 50 years since the Chiefs went to the Super Bowl. But Kansas City is favored to get there this year. The Chiefs go into the AFC Championship Game as 7.5-point favorites over the Tennessee Titans. Meanwhile, the San Francisco 49ers are seven-point favorites over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.
Canadiens And Penguins NHL Black Friday Best Bets
Games involving studs versus duds are featured on the National Hockey League betting board at the TopBet online sportsbook tonight as Montreal is in Buffalo and Pittsburgh is hosting Carolina. We like the Canadiens over the slouching Sabres and the soaring Penguins over the weak Hurricanes with a two team parlay on these contests that are both are scheduled for 7:05 PM ET on November 28, 2014.
Canadiens visit Sabres at the First Niagara Center
Montreal (16-6-1) and Buffalo (6-14-2) close out November with a home-and-home series on back to back nights with the first contest being played in New York tonight. It's been a solid month for the Canadiens as the Habs have gone 8-4 over twelve contests while the Sabres have managed just four wins in their eleven games. Montreal sits in first place overall in the very tight NHL Eastern Conference race as they own a one point lead over three teams and a 19 point lead over the cellar dwelling Sabres.
Crosby & Crew collide the Hurricanes at the Consol Energy Center
One has to admire the season Pittsburgh (15-4-2) has put together so far as the Penguins have earned at least one point in 17 of 21 games. After two straight loses to the Islanders, Pittsburgh has rebounded with a pair of OT wins over Boston and Toronto. At the other end of the scale, we find a Carolina squad that has posted a 2-9 recent record and sits just one point out of the NHL cellar. After opening the season with eight loses, the Hurricanes (6-12-3) won four in a row prior to their recent stumble.
NHL Black Friday Parlay Prediction: Montreal should be well rested as they look to rebound from a 5-0 rout by the Rangers five days ago. The other three teams are all in action following a day off. Montreal earned a 2-1 SO win over the Sabres in their first meeting this year while Pittsburgh and Carolina are set to battle for the first time this season. Like the Sabres and Habs, the Penguins and Hurricanes are also playing a home and home series this weekend. We like Montreal (money line) and Pittsburgh (puck line) as we place a 500 unit two-team parlay wager at the topbet.eu sportsbook.
