No surprise I was expecting you to do that

Not much confidence in it here so playing it small.

Re: NBL Grand Final G1

Not touching the spread or total this evening, but I will have a small wager on Bruton to score 20 or more to keep me interested at tonight's game.

I know he has been a little quiet the past few games, but in the three games thus far againt the Tigers he has scored 23 or more so I wouldn't be surprised to see him get at least 20 again tonight.

CJ Bruton to score 20+ points - 1 unit X $2.50 (Centrebet)

Hope all you Kings fans will be at the game tonight. I get the feeling they are going to need us.

Cheers,

Sparks

I agree, this one could go either way - this will sound extremely ridiculous, but the Kings need the W tonight more badly then the Tigers IMO. Homecourt advantage is what is going to keep them in this series, Tigers are more balanced on paper and Anstey is going to hurt us, it is a question of how much the Kings can limit his effectiveness.

If Tigers win tonight, even I will admit Kings will need something special to get the 4 peat.

agree

good luck on the Cj prop bet mate, but for me it is the man in my avatar who will decide the Kings' fate

Bet lost

I've not seen a team get manhandled on the boards like the kings in a while, outrebounded by about 20 for the night.

That outright on the Tigers looks good just right about now Dave, congrats on last night.

Kings and Gorrj are going to need to pull a rabbit out of the hat now

Well CJ took enough shots to get 20, but last night was one of those games where he could have fallen off a boat and still not have hit water.

It nearly looked like the Tigers offence was pretty much just throw it at the ring and let the big men go get it for an easy bucket. So many times it looked like most of the Kings guys were running away from the ball hoping for a transition bucket only to turn around and see (insert Tigers name here) crashing the boards and getting an easy lay up.

Hopefully Goorj can figure something out between now and tomorrow night otherwise the Kings will be in for another long night

Cheers,

Sparks

I lost count on the number of times the Tigers had an easy Off board and a subsequent put back.

Thanks BG I did hedge a little on the Kings, but the Tigers winning is a better result for me in the outright. May hedge a tiny bit more now too.

Markets all closed though think there is some doubt on CJ for game 2.

Re: NBL Grand Final G1

Centrebet has Melbourne 1.40 to Sydney 2.90 in the outright. I read into that, that CJ must be playing in G2.

But it will become official sometime soon....

Re: NBL Grand Final G1

Head says Tigers will thump the Kings, heart says Kings square up and get back the homecourt advantage, therefore will give this one a miss.

Small play on the total so as I get some action tonight.


OVERS 193.5 Tigers v Kings

Re: NBL Grand Final G1

I'm on the overs as well BG.

Sydney managed to score 93 points on one of their worst shooting nights of the season, so unless they make it two nights in a row of poor shooting and shot selection this will cover IMO.

Also having a litle wager on Smith to out score Thomas, Tucker, McDonlad and Wortho. With CJ labouring it will be on the captain's shoulders once again to get it done for Sydney.

Here's hoping he Kings can make a game of it tonight, but right now I have no real confidence in them.

Cheers,

Sparks

Re: NBL Grand Final G1

Overs will come in, but I'll gladly lose my money to see the Kings take this game. Right now they're looking like the championship team.
