I'm taking Kobe over Carmelo both on the spread (+5) and on the ML, the Lakers are on fire right now and they have won both games in the series so far. The Lakers are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8. Kwame is playing the best basketball of his career, and everyone is chipping in.

Can't really get a feel for the Pistons/Heat game yet.

Like your play freeze but might take a day off. Only 3 games and Kobe has days he shots 8 pts, and days he shots 40+ lol. Hope tomorrow another hot day, which should be more than likely since he's getting rdy to win some playoff games!

Back in few hours maybe with lakers play.

Screw it!

Lakers +5 over Denver.. Lakers have owned Denver before, Kobe been hot recently prime to take the playoff by storm. Denver is pretty tough hometeam but think Lakers are motivated to get remaining wins.

2 units.. May add more later, also liking the overs on this will see how the line moves.

Well, i really believe in Bobcats today. Nets play for nothing. They need miracle to take 2nd spot and there is no possibilities Cavs will take their position. My imaginition (but there is no fact - just my imagination) is we will see more than usual bench players today. Besides all 3 games between Nets and Bobcats were quite close this season. And last but not least - usully big streaks comes to an end where no one expect it.

Look lads, I'm probably the last person who should provide advice on how to punt on NBA, but watching the results (and the upsets!) day after day would it not be a profitable exercise to lay small stakes on the underdogs in every match .. eg yesterday I noticed Phoenix and the Spurs were fairly well supported and both at prohibitive odds to win straight up .. Both lost to underdogs who's prices at the head to head were around the $4 mark .. This sort of madness seems to occurr on a regular basis, sure there are days (like wednesday) when results appear to follow the script, but surely playing rank underdogs (Like the clippers and Sacramento yesterday) would net NBA punters more cash than they lost given the volatile nature of the competition .. ??

You wouldnt think that New Jersey would want to go down against the bobcats at home to end such a great streak though......thats something to play for isnt it?

Doing same as you BG.. This game is too much of a coin flip right now. Basket by basket they're exchanging leads... hence there is no edge... I might as well drive to vegas and play roulette, which is a no bet.

Taking Pistons pk 2nd half and basically breaking even, minus the juice. Going to wait on the lakers game!!!

Plus theres a curse .. ive never won a bet when sadriel's been on my side :p

if detroit was the home team the odds would be 1.35

I've not lost hope on Miami. 4th quarters aren't exactly the Piston's greatest quarters, whereas this is where Miami turn up the Heat. Very clever.

Fuck it, the Heat are done.

I've gone Lakers +5 to break even for the day, or settle in a hole which will leave me pissed off for the rest of the weekend.

Finalized plays:

Lakers +5 over Denver, 2 units
Kobe over 46 pts + rebs + assist, 2 units (this one should hit wheather lakers win or lose)
Miami pk over detriot, 3 units
Detriot pk over Miami 2nd half, 3 units
Add: Kobe to score over 36.5 pts, 2 units (this one should hit even if lakers lose)

Okay I hedged the detriot/miami match and only lost a few bucks on the juice... Taking some fun props off kobe and still liking lakers chances even though the line has moved to +6 for lakers.

since they won today, i would be careful with betting on them tomorrow
2nd night of back to back on the road against the magic who are rested and are playing only for pride

Detroit made a statement few hours ago, so they don't need to win in orlando

1.35 unit on lakers 2nd half pk, and 0.2 unit on lakers -9 at 5.4
