Hey Guys,

TWO of our users 'linemaster12' and 'pasdoom' are both 1 win away from winning the $1,000 in the Streak Survivor Contest!

linemaster hit his 16th win last night with Orlando -6, and pasdoom also hit his last night in the NBA with Phoenix -3.5.

What do you think their next pick should be? You think they should team up and go with the same pick? Will you follow it?

I would go with Tampa Bay over Pittsburgh in Spring training baseball. That's where the money is. I would not follow their next pick. This is when the leaders usually choke.

@Pasdoom- I'm not trying to beat you up or anything but why would risk $1000 and possibly more on the Golden State Warriors? Thats just a horrible way to go down. Get another streak going and leave the sorry teams alone.

I thought it was a good pick. Minni is not very good  but GS  decided not to show up...... good luck on your next streak!

Golden State won already twice against Minnesota this year and was usually quite good against low teams (but they totally suck against big teams).
Minnesota was very poor since the ASG (and even before), they couldn't score much and i thought they would keep missing open shoots. But i forgot that GS wouldn't defend at all and let them take like 25 or 30 offensive rebounds :(

So i finally choose that pick as i chose any other of my streak, the home team sucked, the away team wasn't so bad, and the spread wasn't too high !

KISS IF DEATH THREAD!

Rizz... good guy.... but these "one away" threads are brutal!

Time after time they go down on #16

"He's at the free throw line... made 27 in a row... shooting 93 %for the year... here he goes to win the game.... clink, clank clink clank... can't belive missed" !!!!

Next time Covers has one going for 17... lets see if NOT having this thread helps.

A nice write up AFTER they get the cash... not before. Those who play the streak...and those who come to this forum... know they are at 16 and follow...

Just saying

Can't hate on pasdoom....you stuck with your streak the whole way, road team playing against a weak home team. It worked 16 times in a row for you and GS was up about a dozen at some point in the second quarter (for anyone who didn't follow the game) but the Warriors don't defend or rebound at all and it showed in Kevin Love's stat line. Impressive run though......can I ask if you hedged though? via online or through a bookie.

You work in a pawn shop in Vegas?

I'm guessing when you can type a complete and correct sentence... they will... "Unscrew you".  Maybe... who knows.

Wake up Hoss... Act like you know what your doing... Just a little.

Ouch! All that patience and linemaster loses big with the Hornets +2.5 on the road (again). I was right when I said both would lose, unfortunately. There is probably money to be made with a fade.

Hard to believe he made that his bet of all to choose from. I guess I would have said to myself... the trade... the fact that they played Miami so well... on the road....

I don't know... had to be much better choices out there than this game no?

But he had no chance anyway... this thread... kiss of death. One shot... two people!

Tonight The right choice for him was what he picked. Guy gets to 16 you cant question his or her picks!

 

Congrats on 16 ...hope you get on another roll soon!

Not to be overlooked I'm standing up and giving Pasdoom a hand as well!  Thanks for the thrills friend. Get another streak going and cash in! Yes its time for you to start betting again. If you can win 16 in a row its that time.

Well... getting to 16 was a job well done... BUT... as far as questioning his/her picks... that we can do.

Out of all the games he/she had to pick from... that might have been the worst possible play... not just a bad one. Like I said...

Trade = pumped up team

Home= BIG advantage

Playing well (Miami game) =  STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME.

I would just like to hear why he/she picked this game as the one to let the $1000 ride on.

Better luck next time.

Tuppy.......isn't that the point.  Doing this, we either look really intelligent or really stupid.  People will always question other peoples picks.  i know that I have had a couple that no one else saw coming.  that is what makes this so much fun.  Pasdoom......I bet all the time.  Every pick is a money pick.
