Lakers win but they are just not going to cover large spreads this year.
I went against the grain of my handicapping this team tonight.
 No more !!

Lank66    1-4

Under 195.5 PHI 76ers - MIL Bucks

Over 197 ATL Hawks - ORL Magic


Reasoning:

Philly has been playing better defense lately and has been unable to score more than 90 points over the last 5 games.  I don't see them doing that against Milwaukee either.  Milwaukee has had trouble scoring lately as well, especially against a defensive team.  I have this game hitting between 185-190 total points.

Atlanta has been scoring a lot lately scoring 100 points (or more) against Indiana, New Orleans, and Memphis - all defensive teams.  Orlando is far from a defensive oriented team.  Orlando has their guards back and shouldn't have trouble matching the 100 points I believe Atlanta will put up.  I expect this game to finish between 205-210 total points.

Good luck to all.

I love to lose a bet by 0.5 pts.!!! Thank's Mavin for your Raptors!

No, I'm kidding - nothing to worry about - next time I'll be on the right side winning by half... or less... probably...

For today I'll start with Orlando +3. I see beautifull reverse line movement with over 90 % bets on Atlanta (probably because of their last win over Dallas). Orlando is one of the worst teams at the moment (no doubt about that) but 9 of their 15 wins came when they played home. I believe they can win this SU, but as an insurance I'll take the points. Line opened at 3,5 (some places even 4) and is dropping... It may go lower so for me it's the right time to place a bet...

More picks probably later...

BOL to ALL

The same reason as with Orlando - RLM. I've also noticed that Indiana is not covering big spreads when playing as a favorite...

Getting back to old thread format as what I derived from this competition is that 
A. Most of us bet the same sides and games and we all either win or all either lose.
B. It takes a lots of my time and I have no real time left to handicap the games or binary options
c> It becomes simply a show off thing instead of really discussing the games thoroughly as few of us do - but most just throw in the games and that is why no game pick without expolanation will be viable. May be only from Phixer who anyway knows "what is fixed and what is not " (lol, most of the time I should say).
So, from now on those will be the conditions - you want to enter a picks here - come with the write up and argumentation. And in the right format - 3 letters representing the town the team is from in capital letters, name of the team, spread. If it is totals - Under/Over the number, and the game between the teams with the same format as in spread.

Knicks tough lost at the garden on Sunday they rebound tonight 
Spurs just can't bet against the vets and finally bulls injuries are tough to battle thru especially off a hungry bulls team that got schooled the other night they come out ready. Well hope that's good enough Mavin lol

Had my mind made up for this Parlay even before the lines came out- so I went ahead and booked it-

NBA[501] MIAMI +6½-150 (B+2)  

 

NBA[501]  MIAMI v OKLAHOMA CITY o204-150 (B+2)  

 

NBA[503] LA CLIPPERS -1½-150 (B+2)  

 

NBA[503]  LA CLIPPERS v LA LAKERS o197-150 (B+2)  

 

OPEN PLAY  

 

OPEN PLAY  


$50 for $1356.11


with luck the trend of Lebron murder spree continues and the Fakers are still faking it- Very interesting and apparently on purpose by whoever made the schedule to make these key matchups at the end of the 1H of the season- Although I guess Clips v. Spurs would have been a better matchup based on the standings- and last year's playoffs-

While I know this is an away game for Miami I don't know how they can be a dog the way they are playing. There was a time in January were I could not stand seeing a Heat game, there was no passion, no ball movements, just spot up and shoot the jumper- that is not their game, this is what cost them the championship against the Mavs- They are a team that needs to work fast- move the ball and find the open man- I need to see a bad Lebron shooting night to fade them but as of now Lebron should stay off the edges of south beach as he may evaporate the beach waters-

I picked OKC yesterday in a parlay on the 2H -7 and which means they had to come back just about that much to win the game- It was like they never got out of the locker room. They were playing extremely hot and were ice cold yesterday- Some here were saying that they may be a no show last night as they save their energy for the showdown with the heat but the fact is that when you are closing out the 1H or the end of the season you want to finish strong and the Jazz just man handled them. Lets see if that carries over to Thursday and the Heat keep it hot.

As for the late game The Clips have made it known that they want to finish strong- the energy the other night was very impressive, while the Fakers yesterday played as if they had no idea what the game plan was- Kobe was supposed to be passing then he wasn't he did not get to 4 points until deep in the third quarter and shot bricks all day- while I would like to see them score some as I have the Over I don't know that they get to 100 pts so I will be working on individual bets to hedge some of this game picks- I refused to take the under in either game yet as it just seems that the Allstar week means you don't play defense- The Grizz game was supposed to be under 188 or so and it went over that and then some on top- The line looked fishy as the first two Q lines were set at 49- I took the over on that on a parlay (that was busted by OKC)

I know this game is not tonite but placing the bet now allows me to see some line movement as I think the line on the heat game will drop down a couple of points and the Lakers will move pending the outcome of tonights Clips game-

Will write later about my picks for tonite.

ashylarrymp 2-1:

UNDER 208 HOU Rockets-LA Clippers

ORL Magic +3

Min Timberwolves -2.5


- i like the under in the HOU-LAC game as ONE  of the rockets game has to post an under, a little weary as getting close to the break.. BUT i believe this game will play more to the clippers pace as rockets will now have played 3 games in last 4 nights all on road.. Gut says tired legs catch up here as Cp3 and company hold rockets under 100.. final 106-95.
-RLM is really siding with the ORL Magic on this one as public is heavy on ATL (roughly 85%) yet some books have ORL down to +2.5.. so i grabbed it while it was still at +3.
- This line seems off to me as the jazz have won 8 of last 10 matchups and Twolves not very good. BUT jazz are only 9-18 on the road and are traveling on short rest after a late game last night. and Twolves are 9-4 last 13 at home.. including 3 in a row without K love. and public on jazz roughly (75%) and line has stood strong, good sign.
