Re: Grinder's Hoops and MLB Rampage

Record 10-13 (-2.46 units)

Raptors over Nets @ 4.80 (5 units to win 19 units)
Raptors 1st half over Nets @ 3.00 (5 units to win 10 units)
Toronto +1.5 1st quarter @ 2.40 (5 units to win 7 units)
Toronto +7.5 @ 2.06 (4.72 units to win 5 units)
-The odds on this are shocking, in my opinion. I know the last game they played in New Jersey was a blowout, but the Raptors jumped on them early in game 5 without Bosh. Calderon and Bargnani singlehandedly ran rampantly on the Nets and contained Carter and Jefferson and forced turnovers on Kidd. If the supporting cast does their job and Bosh actually shows up tonight, I can easily see this series going to a game 7.

Win

Finally getting into some rhythm, a shame that Calderon couldn't get that pass up high enough to Bosh or I could be up +30 units.

Re: Grinder's Hoops and MLB Rampage

Record 15-18 (-1.59 units)

Warriors over Jazz @ 2.70 (14.71 units to win 25 units)
-The Warriors don't care where they are, they'll destroy the Jazz. They've got Barnes, Jackson, Davis, Pietrus, Richardson, and Harrington to knock down threes and all of them plus Biedrins have an inside game. Small ball works and they proved it against the Mavs.

Bulls over Pistons @ 3.35 (6.39 units to win 15 units)

Re: Grinder's Hoops and MLB Rampage

Do you play totals in NBA as well or just stick with sides?

I like to play totals during the regular season, but I try to stay away from it in the playoffs because you never know how the tempo of the game will be. For example, the last Golden State-Utah game, they had a 72 point first quarter with the Jazz scoring 37. Unheard for the Jazz to put up those kinds of numbers.

Another is yesterday's game with the Suns/Spurs, it was relatively low scoring considering Phoenix's high octane style. Although I think that may be attributed to Kurt Thomas starting as center. For the most part, however, I prefer going ML as I think they have the best value and the books look too much into home court advantage.
