My new favorite player is Epke Udoh.   

Absolutely stole that guy from Golden State.   

Honestly, I think he's better than Bogut if they got equal playing time.  More athletic, better shot, can block shots just as good, rebound, not injured all the time, only in his 2nd year.

I agree.      Bucks are the only team I watch.   The Knicks have serious injury problems and a tougher schedule.    Bucks have 6 out of their next 7 games at home.

Cool bro. They make the playoffs and then lose 4-1 to either Bulls or Heat.

If it's The Heat, the Bucks might have a chance.   They have done pretty well against the Heat in recent games.   


Although the refs probably aren't going to let the Dream Team get ousted in the first round.

Bucks favored by 11 tonight.   

Their biggest favoritism of the season.   



Andrew Bogut

The Cavaliers have to be the play to get the cover tonite. After a wire to wire 200 point loss to the Spurs last night, no one will touch them with a 10' pole, which is exactly the time you should.

Closest the Cavs have been in their last 6 games is 12 points vs Detroit at home.    The Bucks beat them by 37 points five days ago in Cleveland.

Here's the Cavs last 6 games margins of losses.  35, 16, 37, 12, 18, 25


Philly and Orlando at home were only favored by 9 and 9.5 points in late March.  They both covered

Not making a pick on the game.   Just info.

I was thinking the exact same thing -- I think your average bettor would need 18+ points to back CLE here after getting bitchslapped by MIL last game and then getting run out of the gym by SAS last night. Seems a little too easy to play MIL -11.5 doesn't it?

Ahhhhhh the dreaded "trap game"     I wish I had a penny for everytime I read "trap" and "too easy" on Covers.   


You're about 50% on your picks after about 200 games right?  

How often did the "trap game" angle come thru for you?     Just wondering?     This question has nothing to do with the Cle-Mil game.

Trap

Opposite the Public

Looks To Easy

Reverse Line Movement



The words you can't live without on Covers.   The road to riches.    


How come 99% of Covers posters are losing their behind then?

I'll tell you why. Because everybody uses only statistical analysis,,injuries,trends,traps,etc,etc. The linemaker has all of this info at his disposal as well.
The only time I really clean house on the linemaker is when I hone in on just a small handful of teams which I watch on a regular basis.Nothing beats the "eye test" for knowing a team's current form and predicting their future form for the next game.

Is this an official Getty pick, Cleveland +12.5?

Not with my money. But knowing the slumping rookie guard Irving is officially out for the game, makes me want to bet the Cavs more. It's the right move, but I'm not foolish enough to bet a developmental squad against a pro team.

I've decided I would rather watch them cover the number and say "I knew that was a good spot to bet them" rather than place the bet, see them lose by 20 and wonder why I did. Sometimes the best bet is the one that is never placed. You're either sure or you're not. I'm not.
