Can't argue with the above plays on Brisbane .. The Bullets have proven they're the genuine article this season by, among other things, beating Perth in Perth and the Tigers in Melbourne.

Joey Wright said today he thinks they'll thrive on the Cairns crowd tonight, but scarily he reckons their offense is yet to completely click (!), but he's happy with their 'D' ..

Watching Sammy Mac and Martin Cattalini go at it tonight will be worth the price of admission (even though I don't have to pay!) .. both guys are on fire and it'll be interesting to see how they go in their matchup because their playing styles differ from one another ..

Now it's time for me to come up with a play for tonight!

South Melbourne V West Sydney - Over 209

Wollongong +9

Brisbane V Cairns - Over 197.5

Good luck

Bullets too much of a square play - they should win by plenty but funnier things have happened

No plays for me today, currently battling power surges due to the excessive weather over here :mad:

I could be wrong (and I won't put any money on it) but I wouldn't be surprised if that Dragons / Razorbacks game has a crazy ridiculous number of points scored tonight .. Reckon Cal Bruton will be keen to instill a bit of the old "run and stun" on his new team ..

I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E game at the Convention Centre! Some amazing clutch bombing from the Bullets to send the game to overtime .. but Martin Cattalini, TAKE A BOW! As Joey Wright said at the presser, 51 points in this day and age is like 70 a few years ago .. Just too many amazing moments in this game to go into detail at this late hour ..

CJ Bruton was enormous for Brisbane .. I think he was six points to halftime and just caught fire down the stretch .. That was supposed to be Rob Rose's last game for the Taipans, but the old dog came up with some strong plays tonight (even though his stats only say 8 points) .. His contract will be extended by another three weeks .. Partly due to the fact that Gary Boodnikoff is still struggling to find his feet having just returned from injury ..

From what I saw:

Dave - still unsure on Rogers' status but should hopefully know pretty soon but I do know he is unlikely to play in the All Star game this weekend

Sam/Flambo/SFreak liked the over in the early game (207.5?)

For some reason I'm thinking the West Sydney / Dragons game will go under 211.5 .. Cal Bruton made mention of the word "defense" in a story on nbl.com today .. however the words "fast break" were also in the same sentence!

They played out a high scorer on wednesday, I reckon this one might be a little tighter and slower given that they've had a look at each other and had a chance to scout a bit more for this game .. Those TIGHT West Sydney rims are also pretty unforgiving too ..

I wouldn't throw away the ticket just yet... with the margin this big, they are sure going to slow the play down at some point in the second half... it's 109 in the first half only... so 101 in the second half sounds reasonable to me...

Mr Flamboyant
11-24-2006, 11:08 AM
Looks like Cat didn't play much during the fourth .. Hope he hasn't picked up an injury .. The day he was picked for the All-star game he said (off the record) he wasn't going to play in it .. but as of today he was going to line up in it ..

Sam Mac is in a similar way to Cat this season - injury free for the first time in a long time .. Reckon those two will figure strongly for the MVP this season ..

I admit, I have next to no idea on sides in the NBA (& NBL as you can see from the tipping comp!).. It's such a volatile competition and you have to factor in so much when choosing which side to take ATS .. Totals though are just completely different .. I know a lot of sharp NBA handicappers swear blind that totals are a lottery but I disagree .. I see it as a situation where both teams are working towards what you want .. ie when you take an OVER, they're both scoring FOR you .. When you take an UNDER, they're both defending for you .. I just see so many guys come to grief betting sides I wonder why they bother .. I do rely a lot on the opinion of others on this site and elsewhere when going through with a play ..

All of the above may seem a little like strange logic but, hey it's working for me .. As with anything though, picking your spots with totals is important .. I might have a handful of leans throughout a week but only play one or two that REALLY stand out.. (last night's UNDER was not an example of that! I was just a bit ansey because I hadn't made a play since monday)
