Fantastic to have this back. While its probably smart to sit back and observe the opening weeks before putting in any heavy bets, its also a time when bookies can be off the mark so if you see an opportunity to pounce, go for it imo ;)

Might try and keep a win-loss record for most of my bets this season, most will be line/totals @ around 1.90 anyway.

Will be interesting to compare my results with the NBA heavyweights of Bad Gambler, ILT and Grinder :) Also look foward to Bolar choosing Overs on every game on the card.

May add more later but lets kick it off with:

Lakers vs Clippers Under 207.5

I won't be choosing overs on the card.

The only bet that appeals to me the opening day is the Mavericks/Wizards over.

That will fly over. Wizards are going to be a scoring machine this year depending on Arenas. It will be interesting to see how they fare. Will probably wait and see how their games go with him in.

Havn't followed the pre-season but I know he was lining up. Will be doing my research tomorrow. :wavey: But certainly the Mav's have been racking up the points.

I also might join you on that under. Those two teams havnt played a high scoring game for a while and we know the Lakers have been concentrating more on defence the last season and a bit.

Posted in my other thread:
Rockets over Blazers @ 5.30 (5 units)
I think the Blazers are all talk at the moment, yes they have a good young core but they also seem to have a lot of inner conflict with the starting point guard situation. If Andre Miller isn't happy with coming off the bench, the Blazer's second unit will be worthless. Batum is also going to be out for a few months so that'll probably put a streaky Martell Webster in the starting lineup, allowing Ariza and Battier to focus on shutting down Roy. My only concern is that the twin towers in Aldridge and Oden might have too much size for Scola/Andersen/Landry.

Mavs -8.5 over Wizards @ 1.97 (10 units)
Mavs -2.5 1st quarter @ 1.80 (8 units)
Mavs are clearly the better team when both squads are healthy. While the Mavs are missing Josh Howard, the Wizards are missing a 20/10 guy in Antawn Jamison. Dirk probably would have lit him up offensively, but Jamison would have made him work on the other end, Blatche or Oberto or whoever they have to fill in for him won't be able to compensate at all for Jamison's absence. The addition of Shawn Marion, Drew Gooden, and Kris Humphries also gives them unbelievable frontcourt depth.
