NBA Thursday

I know Chicago, I know Chicago is at home, I know Chicago wants playoff revenge...

But -1 @ 1.91 for DETROIT?

I'm on it. I expect it to be 2.5+ by the morning.

Re: NBA Thursday

well same thought here , i will also play it but small

Playing Also Overs 191.5 Wiz @ NJ . Wizards after losing 3 straight . If they want to have a chance at this match they better put some numbers up. their past in NJ is bad. but overs iwas 6-1 in NJ and the line was even higher (one was OT anyway)

(5 units)

No line / No total for Dallas @ GSW yet

Re: NBA Thursday

I'm waiting to see the Dallas v GSW line too.

I'll be all over the Mavs if it's 9 or less, but I expect a number like 12.

Re: NBA Thursday

Baby Bulls to cover +1 v Detroit Pistons.

Can't say that the Pistons have impressed me. The Bulls have the talent and ability to win this game and to prevent an 0-5 start.

Surely if you can only get +1 you take the ML in this instance?

Yep and in the long run it pays to. Too many people make the mistake of taking more juice in all sports on a team / player needing them to perform only slightly better.
To give an example I run an NHL contest and one of the contestants always takes +1.5 pucklines on every team.
The juice when say the ML dog is +100 the puckline will be around
+1.5 -265. This season I have worked out in only 5 occasions out of about 30 picks has the ML not won as well as the puckline.
You do the maths, far more profitable in the long run to take the ML. This is just an example it applies for all sports.
Nothing new to me, but may be to others so just thought I would mention it.

lol Ivan,if ya like backing the home team then the Bulls are worth a good shot!!Due a win,but unders could be even more value!!!

TNT Thursday,usually has some good unders!!Like the Bulls and Nets Unders!!

Leans on!

Bulls pk over Detriot and Under 182.5pts total!!
Wizards vs Nets Under 191.5pts and Wizards +6.5pts due a win or cover!!

No line out for Mavs/Warriors but Mavs should destroy the girls either the game goes over or unders Mavs should clean up by 10+ imo!!!

Re: NBA Thursday

Decided to take the Unders in TNT Thursday!!

60 units on Chicago Bulls vs Detriot Pistons Under 182.5pts total - Bulls lookking for 1st win,feel they should pull it off but see a scrappy game and hopefully hit 160 -170pts,lean on Bulls pk!!

Good luck -other leans on Wizards Under 191.5pts and Wizards +6.5pts,Mavs are very tempting aswell depending on the line!!

No worries,anytime!!There's only 3 games 2day!!Nets are too short with Wizards desperate for a win while Nets got flogged by Raptors,dont know how they will come out most likely very slow!!Pistons own the Bulls but Bulls are desperate therefor liking the unders!!Mavs should win and comfortable but dont know what the line is so 50/50!!More value on Unders mate in the early games,just my opinion!!

What if they lose by 1

But yeah, i do understand what your saying, plus the money line was at evens+ and because the hanycap is at 1.90. I had to increase the stake to make an even profit.
