Kings to cover -4 v Tigers

No surprise I was expecting you to do that :D

Not much confidence in it here so playing it small.

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.

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

Kings to cover -4 v Tigers


good luck


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.


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


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 :sad:

Cheers,

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.

dave nz
02-25-2006, 05:43 AM
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....

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

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

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.

Tigers are going to have to get going for this over to cash, Kings playing some decent D atm

sparkus8
02-26-2006, 08:29 AM
Well my Smith prop looks done. Four fouls already and he hasn't looked like hiiting an open jumper when he was on anyway!

Over still a decent chance. All these fouls will surely lead to plenty of free throws towrds the end of the quarter.

bad gambler
02-26-2006, 08:39 AM
Well Anstey is sitting with 4 fouls at the moment at HT

It is the Kings' lucky night tonight

sparkus8
02-26-2006, 08:40 AM
Only 90 more points for the over. Here's hoping Sydney can keep knocking down their shots (especially Smith).

bad gambler
02-26-2006, 08:42 AM
Smithy :rolleyes:

With Anstey's presence inside gone, hopefully the Kings will be smart enough to pump inside once in a while during the 2H and gets some cheap buckets!

dave nz
02-26-2006, 08:50 AM
Flat performance by the Tigs in the first half, no intensity crashing the boards or on D.

Every man and his uncle are on Melb tonight, pleased I played it small.

I'm not too confident either on the total

And not confident on the Kings getting the W either

Overs is going to be tight. If the game stays this close, there won't be any fouling to push it over.

either OT or a final foul-a-thon in the final minute is required

No good lose by half a point, I thought there was a foul at the end there with time still left too grrr.

Still not a bad result here as I pick up far more than 1 unit If the Tigers win the series.

Its generally regarded Anstey as only an outside chance to win the season MVP. Has me scratching my head to be honest.

Was definitely a foul with a second left, I guess they were more interested in getting the celebrations going.

Losing Rolan was a killer and Webber is not an inside presence you needed another quality big.

CJ and Anstey were guarded very well in that first half, allowing other players to step up.

You wanna talk overated geez Ben Knight....

Halftime score flatters the Kings IMO, hopefully I'm not saying the same in another hour.....

CJ doesn't need to be guarded very well at the moment. He can't hit a shot to save himself right now.

This feels just like the other two games :(

3 in a row is pretty good I suppose

If only games were played for a half, kings would have a 4 peat by now :lol:

Bruton has had possibly his worst game I have seen him play ever on both offense and defense, just wasn't the same since he came back from injury

tigers too good when it mattered at the back end of all 3 games

sparkus8
02-28-2006, 10:07 AM
Yep those two threes he hit came way too late. Tigers are worthy winners, they got it done when it mattered.

dave nz
02-28-2006, 10:43 AM
I would have liked the Kings chances vs any other team. They have nothing to be ashamed of, as to be blunt the Tigers played great ball and I don't use the word great lightly.

Congrats to all involved with the proud club.
