Oh boy, what a round on the cards. Expect some big betting from me too.

Starts tomorrow Perth @ Melbourne. Then Cairns @ NZ Breakers on thursday NZ time.

A Rating Special is on the cards too......and possibly the biggest bet I have placed for sometime.....Back later with my plays.

Tigers v Wildcats - under 198.5

These sides were locked at 91 apiece at the end of regulation time in October, and the Wildcats went on to win 99-97 in OT.

Also, Wildcats tend not to score big on the road, unless it's against the weaker teams.

That was my first inclination on this one too .. but after taking a hit on the Houston UNDER today I'm a little low on confidence ..

Big front court battle looming in this one .. Neither team shoots the three well but expect both teams to 'pack it in' and guard the key ..

You gotta expect some scoring droughts at times in this one .. expect the game to be played with semi-final type intensity ..

jeez .. ended up not playing anything tonight .. thought the fact there might be a lot of fouls (and hence free throws) might push this total over .. but it's been the great jump shooting of the Tigers that's got this thing hooning along ..

Yeah that one was an aberation .. I mean the Rockets are one of the slowest teams in terms of tempo in the NBA and with Golden State on a back to back the play made perfect sense .. You'll wait a long time to see them put up 118 or whatever it was today .. (you watch them go no higher than 155 with Minnesota tomorrow!)

What hurts about my two losses on the trot is that my initial leans for both days (detroit potland UNDER on mon & Suns / Sac OVER today)I ingored when it came time to put my money down, they won, and what I played lost!

Taipans are pretty amped for this game .. they don't make a habit of losing two straight .. haven't done so during the regular season since the early rounds of last season .. But NZ is playing tough at home ..

The history of these teams suggest OVER 203.5 is a good chance .. check out some of their previous results in New Zealand and you'll see what I mean .. Their Nov 13 match finished 113-99 Cairns' way .. in Cairns .. I see both teams putting up 100+ ...

Yeah that's an idea, but I reckon if and when I go online I'll go with centrebet .. I go green when I see some of their prices compared to what I get .. stuff I might get on that's paying $1.75 will be $1.90 on CB .. that adds up in a big way over time ..

(MTF 4-4-0)

Mate I have an extremely close working relationship with the Taipans and I kind of winced when I saw you guys lining up to play them this afternoon .. When you're around a team day after day watching them train ect you get a feel for how they're travelling and what their confidence levels are like and I just didn't think they were quite up to winning this afternoon ..

The two big deficiencies with this year's group are the lack of a reliable centre and the shooting guard position .. Kevin Owens is just far too hit and miss .. he's fidning the adjustment from NBA Dev leagues to NBL a major hurdle .. Too often he racks up early fouls or just can't get himself into games and is virtually a dog's body on the bench .. There's been rumours floating around Cairns that his spot is in jeopardy, but whenever I've raised that question I've got the typical "company line" response ..

Anthony Stewart's deterioration in form is another big problem .. Stewey WANTS to come off the bench, he admits he shouldn't be a starter but the club hasn't been able to fill this spot with a blue-chip Australian or import .. Watch for that to change next season ..

When Darnell is naturalised and Damon Thornton comes in it'll help their cause but still, I don't think it'll cure cancer .. The above two problems are the ones that need addressing .. and fast ..

good_gambler
12-08-2006, 03:21 AM
In my opinion, Darnell Mee does not do anywhere near enough. :confused:

This is a guy with NBA experience and from what I've seen this year, he is creating nowhere near enough opportunities for others. :shrug:

When in doubt take the smaller number I guess .. If what I saw last friday night up here holds true tonight, the 36ers are going to be fodder for the Kings .. the only drawback is a blowout I guess .. ie can Adelaide score enough .. ?

I find it hard to see this game staying under the number though .. Sydney should run rampant ..

I just can't believe how one week you can be so hot and the next absolutely nothing goes your way .. This time last week I'd won eight straight bets (all on NBA/NBL totals) and my all time punting profit/loss stood at +$1706.3 .... This week it goes 2-6 for an overall loss of $530 ... 0-5 on totals NBA/NBL ..

you guys should be right.

Mr Flamboyant
12-08-2006, 09:51 AM
F#ck that .. these two teams are just getting warmed up .. you guys can expect a bigger second half than the first .. Crocs home games have a tendency of having huge 3rd and or 4th quarters ..

But then again what would I know .. ???!!! I'm MASSIVE fade material atm ..

I'm starting to develop a bit of a theory when it comes to totals .. In terms of OVERS, always favour "points on the board" .. ie whatever the number is .. don't ASSUME teams are going to come out and light it up and go over the total .. basketball is a game where teams miss more than they hit on average .. For totals above 200, you have to assume that both teams are going to shoot the ball very well to get over that number ..

I'm gonna work on devising a set of 'rules' when it comes to totals .. I've seen (and lost) enough over the last week to get a fair idea of what not to do ..

Hey here's one ..

Went out to get a word from the Taipans when they arrived home from NZ this afternoon and Stewey took me aside while waiting for his bags and told me Damon Thornton (the club's import in waiting) had to stay behind in NZ because he breached visa regulations by travelling over there with the team !!!

The club thought by sending him across the ditch it'd speed up his eligibility to gain a working visa, but it completely backfired!! He's now stuck over there for the next few days .. and apparently just about ready to kill someone! He'll play for the Snakes next week though .. Darnell Mee's naturalisation is just about done ..

Points on the board theory beginning to look sound .. Put it this way, I've had numerous UNDERS bets that've won by up to 45 points .. Yet every OVER win I've had has squeaked home with last week's Suns / Bucks win the exception (cleared the total by 23) ..

ASSUME THEY WON'T GET THERE if the number is above 205 .. as long as Phoenix isn't one of the teams ..

I really hate hearing about people losing because I know how bad it feels .. HT / FT doubles suck balls .. when you're in a hole you gotta keep it as simple as possible .. ie just a solid short priced favourite, at home for the straight up win ..

Look, I'm a massive believer in this bloke 'brewers7' who's been posting his NBA plays on this site of late .. he doesn't win every day, but over time he wins more than he loses .. NBA is his passion and he's got some great contacts by the sound of it .. I've tailed him (only!) three times and guess what ? all three have hit .. There's a select few US cappers who really have their fingers on the pulse with this stuff .. just watch the way their bankroll goes steadily up over the course of a season .. if we'd tailed brewers this season we'd all be +$2,200 or whatever he is ..

I've ground away all year and am only $1190 'up' overall .. the last week has proved I don't know as much as I thought I did when it comes to this stuff .. so I'm biting the bullet and tailing him .. clearly I think we could all do a hell of a lot worse than ride this guy's selections too ..

why not? there's generally a four hour window .. ie first games normally tip off 9am (qld time) through to 1:30pm for games in LA ect (west coast?) mate you should scour sites like covers.com ect and check out a few 'sharps' on there (you can tell who they are because they have hundreds if not thousands of 'views' beside their posts) .. just look at whatever their strongest play of the day is (some of these guys bet ridiculous amounts) and tail it .. brewers I believe is right up there with the best if not THE number one .. his stakes are far smaller than most yet his profit % is outstanding ..

i got 201 1/2 and -6 1/2 with the tab......i know i shouldnt bet at the tab but it was a rush bet as i was out and only had the bet because the missus and the outlaws were going to the carols by candlelight and i got off, so i didnt have to go. so i thought id have bet to have an interest for the night:)

hope you will win big in late match.
over should be quite safe.
we only need less 45 points each qtrs.
