Four plays for me .. liking my overs/under success more than the sides:

Wash/SA over 197 @1.862 1 unit

Indiana/Milwe over 191 @1.893 1.5 unit

Utah/Port over 187 @1.952 1 unit

UCLA/LSU under 121.5 @1.962 1.5 units
UCLA and LSU both highly defensive teams. Can't see this one going more then 60 per half.

Miami lead 53-44 at the half, on target to go overs if the game stays close.

really tempted to add more to the LSU/UCLA unders..

Guys like farmar love squeezing the shotclock down to 10 seconds then try to penetrate and do a tough jumper and miss the ball.. LSU stopped duke from scoring their usually 70+ pts too which is remarkable.. ucla will have to take lots of tough jumpers from the outside and will probably shot .340 or lower.. in addition to that their FT percentage has been down the craps .. probably added 1 more unit

im leaning bruins. Its like the pistons facing the heat. Heat have a couple dominant players, lsu has a couple dominant players in thomas and big baby but ucla while they arent all scorers are a more balanced squad. lsu also doesnt have anyone I would call a reliable ball handler so against the crazy ucla d they'd turn it over a lot. Course on the flip side, ucla cant much up inside with lsu and could get out rebounded on both sides tonight. Its a tough call either way. Be a hell of a game tho.

This is UCLA's offence in a nutshell.

a.) Farmar passes to #1
b.) #1 passes to Farmar
c.) Farmar passes to #2
d.) #2 passes to Farmar
e.) repeat step a-d until shotclock is down to 10 seconds
f.) Farmar attempts tough jumper with 1 second left, misses

UCLA to have .350 shooting today at best is my prediction.

Add:

LSU over UCLA ML @1.741

Only reason stopping me from making this bet is cause I'm a former bruin and I wanted to root for them during the game.. But really they aren't going to win and I might as well make some money :)

Would be very surprised if UCLA gets to the final.

I'm thinking Utah should roll Portland without too much trouble. Portland have lost 9 on the bounce and the Jazz have beaten Denver and Phoenix recently. I was thinking ML Utah, do you know something I don't know? Surely Utah aren't that shithouse since they still have a chance at the playoffs?

I feel Portland will cover n this game will be only 1 or 2 pts in it,maybe a buzzer for the winner!!!!therfor the pts are safe IMO,Portland can match it up with Utah but the main thing is what you have said they have lost 9 in a row!!!Portland should win this game just on good old gut feel n those stinkin Jazz!!!!Jazz are theyre to make up the numbers in the playoffs only a few teams can win it all!!!
Jazz beat Suns last yr aswell,also they matchup well against Nuggies,some teams do like playin other teams more,this is due to matchups!!

Portland are a frustrating team to bet on. They can't defend, and they can't shoot the ball from anywhere. Not even the FT line. The only way they win is if the other team happens to play even worse than they do, which the Jazz are more than capable of doing.

Thanks for the info. I'm still thinking ML Utah as they really need to win and the trailblazers don't have much to play for besides pride. Plus Portland really are terrible and have gone 2-18 in their last 20! Just can't bring myself to back them to win a basketball match right now. Obviously I'm going to back the Jazz now and Portland are going to win it in the first quarter, I can just feel it!! :) I won pretty good on Sveta beating Shriekapova, so I can spare a few on Utah.
Good luck with your plays anyway, I'll be sure to eat some humble pie when portland take it on the buzzer!

how annoying is it when you bet on an NBA team to win and then just before the game starts they announce that their best player isn't playing.
