WTD 0-3 -3.00

Today i'm going on couple of nice bets and i'll explain 'em shortly.

Greece to cover -3 v. Lithuania - 1 Unit
with all the love i've got for Lithuania, and although they have some decent players, they don't have a good PG and that's a problem. Lithuania is a team that based on shooters like Macijauskas, who scored 24 pts against Turkey. Against the tough defence of Greece i can hardly see him doing that. Greece got the keys to stop Lithuania and i think they will succeed to do so.

Slovenia to cover -3 v. Italy - 1 unit
As i said before about them, Slovenia got a great team IMO and they can do great in this championship. Italy team is no more than mediocre, Slovenia have much more talent and quality.

New Zealand +11 v. Germany - 1 Unit

Nigeria to cover -5.5 v. Venzuaela - 1 Unit


Good luck :cool:

Love the title Nimmy :cool: Best defender in the tournament deserves it :D

Got a few today:

Greece to cover -3.5 v Lithuania (best bet)

+

Australia to beat Turkey - $2.15

+

France to cover -2.5 v S&M - $1.90

Got to duck out but will give some comments about the late games - I feel there will be a correction today after the dogs ruled the roost yesterday.

good luck

Having done the "rounds" of the www, there's a tonne of support for Slovenia to be too strong for Italy ..

New Zealand with 9.5 start looks good too .. They're such an underrated team the Tall Blacks .. Play hard from go to woe and expect them to be in this game right to the death ..

Disagree, overated IMO. No quality bigs what so ever.

There's no way known NZ is overrated .. They're one of the most unheralded lineups going around .. They finished 4th at the last World Championships!!

Anyway, you're right they don't have bigs of any note, but regardless NZ always manages to punch above its weight .. They're ultra competitive ..

Last being the key word.....
That was four years ago, different team, they caught alot of teams "off guard".

Losing a 14 point HT lead is unacceptable - but as I said props to Turkey as they played well second half

No hating here, just stating facts.

How about posting some picks in here instead of coming in and commenting on other peoples posts for a change?

Australia blow a 14 point halftime lead, Greece shoot 21/41 from the FT line :retard: and need OT to beat Lithuania, France scrape home with the cover after playing like shit for the whole game.

I'm still dizzy but at least this is a start

Sharp comment here. Watching that game Lithuania have massive problems at the point. Give them a decent PG and they would be a contender at this tournament.
