I know this obviously probably won't happen but i think thats some decent value.  I mean i put 3 dollars to win 750.   I think the pacers are actually a decent team and comparison to other odds they were giving other i think theres some longshot value here. and plus, there 38-1 to win the east on betjaimaca soooooooo

If you choose to bet it - I hope you hit it.  But......I don't see how a tremendous longshot is of any way related to Value

$3 to win $750 is VALUE....do not listen to these morons. They said my Arizona to win the SB didnt have a chance. Crazy things happen all the time. You cant even eat at Taco Bell for $3....put it on the pacers and hope for the best!!!!

to really determine if you feel theres value think about it like this, sort of in poker terms.
 
If they played these playoffs with these temas from the eastern conference 250 seperate times, (which obviously is impossible since itd take 250 years but thats not the point), Do you feel the Pacers would come out of the East more than once out of those TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY TIMES????? Basically, do you think if they had to play the Cavs ad Celtics in back to back 7 game series (which is very likely given the east this year) would they win both those series more than once in 250 times?? I would think even though the Celts and Cavs are FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR superior to Indina Im not sure, maybe Indiana gets hot and wins those series back to back twice out of 250 times (all u really need to calssify VALUE). But then again, maybe they get their behind kicked 250 straight times by both but I dont think so. So I guess this bet has SOME value but it just seems ridiculous cuz of how far ahead Boston and Clev are than the rest of the East. Answer those questions for yourself and that determines if the bet has VALUE.
 
Also to everyone, Sorry if this post was a bit similiar to  ProfessorPokaf rambling!!!!! lol

I just think pacers are a good team who has some players and have a shot to get hot and be a contender, Im not convinced that the cavs and celtics are that dominant.  Plus, betjamaca had them at around 50-1 compared to bodog's 250 -1, thats a big difference.  i know they may not even make the playoffs, but im hoping a long shot turnsout
