Thanks Vyper. True words of wisdom. Its a learning process of how confident one has to be to wager money, since we all know we cant all win all the time. I know im still not there yet, but am hoping my new involvement in this forum site and others can improve on this.

Remember King James covering the other night, defying good betting principals.  I think Black Mamba produces a similar outcome and that could be where the Books get their money tonight.

I also feel the same, wondering if line will be more favorable right before start of game for a lakers play for 1 unit and a money line bet on lakers for half a unit

i feel like between the celtics and the nuggets that one of the teams on a 3 game night will dissapoint. i beleive thatwill be the nuggets. idk why i think that but they both look too easy but the celtics i like due to the rest and they have to keep playing to stay in the race. GL all hope they both hit as everyone is on them in this site

my favorite gambling quote I made up with a buddy i used to cap with

"sometimes its not about knowing what games to bet, its knowing  what game not to bet"

 I do like Philly to take that tonight outright. Bos seams to be a team they can handle beating at home. Bos this year is not good as a low fav, 1-4 su/ats as a -2, look deeper into that and they are 0-3 su/ats on the road in that situation. I will say that will be one pic I take tonight, I'm hoping the line climbs a bit more in my fav everyone and their dog is on Bos.

I was thinking the same exact thing except for the loss a few weeks back in LA for OKC. They went to LA Sunday and took care of business against the Clippers who embarrased the Lakers around the all-star break. I think OKC wins not sure if they cover- still have some time to make a decision. Also OKC already beat the Lakers at LA where the total was 217 if am not mistaken and that was also the line for that day 217.5 I see this as a playoff matchup- which means there will be defense. But taking more recent trends I take the Denver Game where LAL Lost and Denver Game where OKC lost- OKC was a closer game so I think they win today- will they cover, have not decided, I however to have them in a teaser-

AshyLarryMP (17-20):

PHI Sixers +3

UNDER 214 OKC Thunder - LA Lakers

i saw that the boston game is the #1 bet game of the day, 85%! is on boston right now and the line has dropped to -2 at some sites.. i know the line opened at -1, -1.5.. BUT with this much action on boston line shouldn't be dropping at all, combined with the fact that Boston isn't great on road and PHI winning record at home and have already beaten celtics 2 out of 3 times this year, think it will be close to the end, sixers maybe win outright.

i also see value in the under, as last meeting between these 2 also went under, 2 of last 4 have gone under and 5 of last 7 have gone under. Thunder home games average roughly 205ppg and lakers road games average roughly 205ppg. i also agree with turbovtk that since this is a 'playoff matchup feel' game there will be more defense than usual. also fading public as 74%+ on the over, see this as OKC 105- LA 99 

i like the nuggets too but with SO MANY PEOPLE on them i decided to stay away, but i'll be rooting for you guys BOL!

You need to format properly

PHI 76ers +2.5

LA Lakers +8.5

SAC Kings +5

and you need to provide a reason for your picks.

OVER 183 BOS Celtics - PHI Sixers

The Sixers are a better scoring team at home then most people give them credit for.Their games at home avg close to 189 ppg. The Celtics will have rested legs and in my opinion will give them a spark offensively.

The Kings may have hard a time scoring 108 points in 48 min.   I don't see this game going to overtime.

I like the Laker game to go over 214. I see both teams playing an up tempo game and neither team really plays very good defense.

I like the Denver game to go under the mark 224.5. I think this total is ridiculously high and really think both teams need to score like crazy to get to the total. I think my money has a better chance believing one quarter will be a low scoring quarter and keep the total under the mark. I feel for the total to go over the game needs to be close, and both teams need to be scoring. I do not think both of these happening and see a score of Denver 115 Sacramento 102.


EAGLEQUILL 4-3

Sitting this one out tonight, been in a funk and may have been forcing plays, so I'll take a step back to refocus.
