Re: NBA Tuesday

I like the chances of Atlanta @ Cleveland. Took a +9.5 handicap @ 1.90. I know they have been horrible the last 2 years but it seems like things are getting better. At first wanted to take the Atlanta to win @ 5.05 because i see value here but ended up with the handicap.

Yesterday i got lucky with the -2.5 handicap on the Magic! Is it wise to bet on dogs in NBA? Most of the time i bet on tennis and soccer and especially in tennis i feel betting dogs works. Is it the same in NBA?

Was wondering why GS are @ 3.25. They had a good preseason and beat Dallas last night. They seem to do well now under Don Nelson. I know NO is 3--0 so far but they weren't that good in preseason and i don't rate them that high. Well still got some time to think about that lean.

GL everyone and thanks for the link BG!

Re: NBA Tuesday

Preseason doesn't mean much, I wouldn't look to hard at those records.

As for NO, I think you should rate them fairly high, they were the surprise team of the year last year (though they tailed off greatly at the end). Paul is already up there with Nash as one of the league's best pure point guards, his presence on the court is tremendous. West broke out last year in a huge way and has continued this year. Then they added Peja, Bobby Jackson, and Chandler, who are all fitting well and contributing.

The Warriors on the other hand, are terribly inconsistent. For some reason they play the Mavs tough, and are actually 3-0 against them in Dallas the last 2 years. They could be prone for a letdown the day after a huge win.

Re: NBA Tuesday

GL Sheva, I am surprised that the line actually moved towards NO overnight even after the Warriors' win. They easily played their best game by far and Richardson looked like his old self for the first time all year. They can hang with anybody on a given night, and if you can somehow figure this team out, they could be quite profitable.

Re: NBA Tuesday

Damn I missed the 187.5 in the Cavs-Hawks game, really like the over but line has moved 2 points to 189.5 so going to leave it alone.

Also does anyone know why the T-wolves line has moved a point to +8?

I don't think there are any injury problems, KG left briefly yesterday after landing weird but he returned. Probably just a reaction to their subpar effort against the Kings.

Re: NBA Tuesday

Just realised wolves are playing 4th game in 5 nights

Most probably the reason for all the love for the Lakers

Re: NBA Tuesday

Atlanta V Cleveland - Over 188.0

Philadelphia V Indiana - Over 198.0

Also like Phili to keep their winning run alive. But only have the balls to bet the line. I never like betting lines on the NBA, but will back Phili +4.5

Also leaning towards Houston at the line of -3.0 and the Under of 177.5

Good luck!

Re: NBA Tuesday

New Orleans V Golden State - Under 197.5

NO will play defence and Golden State are playing their 3rd game in 4 days or something similar to that.

See a 96 - 88 type game.
