Hey Biz, when you guarantee anything in life you look like a jackass. When you havent won a game in the finals and you come out and say you're going to win not 5, not 6, not 7 championships it is difficult to cheer for you. I don't hate the heat, but it's hard to cheer against the Thunder who are young and exciting and for the most part humble. Thunder in 6!

Miami in 5 or 6. Interesting odds on the series price, it was 3/2 Miami to win it all going into the ECF game 7. Only to be +149 following the game. I bought at that time, but seeing it +149 made that an unnecessary risk. One thing about handicapping and sports betting in general is that are always learning. Many lessons can be learned, just got to take the time to study.
