Hey Marvin, does my game total odds bet count for yesterdays action? It was an "in play" bet and I did wager actual money on it as I do all my calls. Just want to get the rules down. Thanks Marvin.

Those kind of plays can't really be tailed as well as halftime bets,  cause of a short time span between publishing and actual changing of the prices, spread and action. Therefore those kind of picks do not carry any value nor helping other to profit wise, nor learning wise as there's no room for discussion.
So, as much as I can applaud for the winners and there's no problem with publishing them - they really do not fit the contest format.

With all due respect to sports betting - the main killing field became the Binary Options as I am up more than 14K in recent month and a half

Turbovtk 13-11

MIA Heat -6.5

GS Warriors -1

Under GS Warriors - SA Spurs 203.5

Heat, we all saw what the Heat can do when they want to do it. It was not even making shots it was just being physical and taking it to the RIM- While the refs made a mockery of this game I mean if you looked at someone funny it was a technical, if you stepped on your own toes it was a technical. I expect the Bulls to play with a bit of frustration maybe get in foul trouble and maybe take shots that are not their shots and the Heat may lose one more game in this series but I doubt this is the game. Can they cover, well when they went to the home of the MIL Bucks they took care of business and they have pure shooters there. So I think that if they man up and play D they can take care of business here too. The Bulls are on an amazing run considering all the injuries I think that run is about to end, while it is not my thing to predict runs it is coming of a big loss that I am making this call rather than figuring out the first win or loss that stops a streak. I have spread on this game hedging live and 2h. The under also seems to be a good play here and it is part of a small parlay.

GS, if they continue to play with energy, don't get a big head and continue to get the off boards they can really win this series. While the Spurs have been clutch and hitting lots of jumpers same as GS (this could be their downfall need to shoot 50-55% a game to win) I think this game may not reach 200- the first one barely went over OT not included and like stated before it had a 70 pt quarter, and while these type of scoring barrages can occur I think that it is not the norm and betting on it to happen is the same a prop- aka crapshoot. I also want to see what the props are for 3pt shots made, I hit the one over 8 in the first game and in the second game hit first team to 10 to 20 and to 30 by picking GS because they are the younger team coming of 2x OT they would have fresher legs and more hunger, it worked out this way. Lets see what tonight brings. Hedges for total and spread live and 2H-

Always enjoy reading your picks, Turbo! Had a horrible night going 0-3 last time. Was right about CHI scoring less but in now way I saw them give up so many points. Don't feel like i have a good handle on these match up so far. Started 12-3 in the first round and now 14-8.

14-8 is nothing to sneeze at. I don't post overall records here anymore because alot has to do with live bets and 2H- but on posted stuff you are doing better than me.

If you do a post game write up it should help. On my write ups I believe I mentioned that the line would be -7-9 or something when Heat when to CHI and that its what it is so no brainer to go with what you expected. Anything can happen am going with the more talented team here, Phixer said it before that there is a spread given to home teams whether they are good or bad they just get the points but MIA is special in that regard and they should be- they got under -10 each away game v. Bucks and over 14 at MIA- while others saw their lines flip more than 8pts like OKC was -3 at home now +5 at memphis.

Thanks for the enjoying my write ups at least they are not going to waste because as soon as they become waste they will seize to appear here.

Ok. This is the stage in the Playoffs when I sit on skype with mythological handicappers who have made their name during the NBA playoffs and we discuss the Code of the games. All who consider themselves playoff experts are invited to join the discussions as well as to post for the contest.

against-all-odds 2-2

SA @ GS San Anto +6

Golden State has been playing solid and have a huge edge up on SA. I think their youth and 2nd year head coach will slip a bit underestimating the veteran team and coach combo that SA is comprised of. The NBAs hunger for high ticket sales (some may not agree with this logic) will place a great deal of emphasis on SA with the win and I feel that if SA has a chance of winning only one game in the series this will be it.

Nothing wrong with going under and hedge at half, unless you think the 1H will be the monster half.

In some ways you could say the Spurs did lose two in a row already so your argument does make sense- But they have really been out matched energy wise- if they slow the game down alot and I mean no fast breaks they have a good chance to win, and this will put the under in a good positions as well. they can't gun sling they way out of this one, at unless the warriors shoot under 50%

Under 186.5 CHI Bulls - MIA Heat
Under 201.5 GS Warriors - SA Spurs

OK, I just lost the CHI under in the previous game, hoping that was just a fluke and CHI just had a mental breakdown. Hoping to see their lock down D at home tonight.

Spurs under is on RLM. I think Spurs realize now they can't outgun GS and have to take it inside more.

There's a game I did not agree with my colleague. In Chicago. I think Miam i will win the series easily but won't be covering, At least the first halves.

CHI Bulls +4.5  1H

I agree with Phixer about the Spurs putting a strangle hold on GS today.

SA Spurs +2

I apologize my point spread was +3 on the SA game. I kept looking at the posts and was wondering why everyone was only getting 2 points on the game. My bad, the books had it at -/+3 when I placed my wager around 4:56. Good luck to everyone!
