Only the 2 games today but loving the late game!!!!

50 units on Phoenix Suns vs Houston Rockets Over 204pts total- Both teams are shooting the lights out of the ball n the basket in Phoenix is gonna be to hot to dunk the ball!!!!!This should sail over 210-220 IMO if the Clippers game was to go by!!!!

40 units on Houston Rockets +5pts over Phoenix Suns- Although Rockets in good touch as so the Suns the spread looks abit too low IMO,Rockets could win this game outright or Suns by 2-4 pts,a THRILLER in PHOENIX!!!!Public is all over the Suns

Good luck!!!! Other leans on Bulls -5/ Over 196pts!!!!!!!

my friends tips from BA

Record of published NBA bets in BA forum: 40W - 26L +60.47 units

Houston Rockets @ Phoenix Suns

Houston +5.5 @ 1.952 (Pinnacle) 5 units

Took this one early few hours ago as i was sure the line will move down. It is +5 now. Still might go back up though. Houston is trying to take 8th win in 9 games. They are on a really good run now and in excellent form. They gunned Clippers down 129-98 two days ago with a balanced effort from T'mac, Yao and rest of the team. Houston likes to play away and Phx is not significantly better in home games. Suns returning from High altitude, thin air Denver to play b2b at home and playing in Denver is often energy consuming. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Houston wins this one straight up.

Interesting statisctics:
Houston is 20-8 Against the spread on the road so far this season and 10-1 as a road dog of 3.5 to 6pts.
Keep in mind that they have missed either T'mac or Yao, or both, in over half of those games. Houston is simply a road team this season but is showing signs of getting over their homephobia now...

6ers +5 over the Bulls. Since when are the Bulls deserving of such a point spread?

i've backed houston to win outright. odds were 2.80 last night but i got them for 2.60 this morning.

i'm partially confident. whenever the rockets go on a good run, and the public expect them to win, they always seem to get blown out.


the bulls are playing well and the 76ers not so well. chandler's in a slump for the bulls and philly can turn it on anytime. then again it's a back to back game for philly, but that's not something i usually take into account.

Philly beating the Spurs yesterday is good enough for me.

everytime i back the bloody bulls they are always in a winning position but choke down the stretch. i think they will cover today, but like the rockets and Tracy "Mr TNT" McGrady better. I also think they will win S/U.

6ers off to a great start, down by 10+. If anyone knows how to choke on a lead though, it's the Bulls.

The Rockets @ Suns game is nationally televised. I seem to remember hearing something about T-Mac playing like a monster on nationally televised games.

spurs haven't been performing that well lately and duncan is carrying an injury.

i wouldn't trust the bulls to keep a lead even if they're 20pts up going into the 4th. this match is too ballsy a bet for me. overs is looking good.

Just as I say that they hit a fucking 3.

Oh well this is a joke, Rockets have no chance in hell of catching up with 38% shooting and they aren't getting any stops. I'll be looking at the 2nd half market when it's up.

Dont fall into the trap, ive chased a team in the 2nd half many a time. Usually with not much success.

Oh well, I'm bored and need the entertainment, I love making mug bets. Sometimes they come off, like Mathieu over Stepanek yesterday.

2nd half plays, Suns ML and over 101.5 for me.

Ohh, i misunderstood. When i used to take a team and they were losing at half time i would always play the 2nd half line on the same team and ususally lost :(
