Every time I heard somebody saying "that game was fixed", I used to believe that it was only frustration for an undesired game output, but after today's USA/AU match up, I don't know anymore.

USA TT was 14.5 points for the 1st 5 mins. of the game...they scored 14.

USA TT was 28.5 points for the 1st quarter of the game...they scored 28.

USA TT was 56.5 points for the 1st half...they scored 56

now, AU was doing exactly the oposite:

AU TT was 10 points for the 1st 5 mins. of the game...they scored 12.

AU TT was 20 points for the 1st quarter of the game...they scored 21.

USA TT was 40 points for the 1st half...they scored 42

As you can see, the game went exactly the opposite as expected. Including just 2 points by lebron james in the 1st quarter (free throws), and 0 points for kobe for the whole 1st half.....

so, I was like: "TUSA comeback in the 3rd as they've been doing throughout the Olympics", and decided to put some more units for the first 5 mins of the 3rd, and the opposite for AU, expecting a blowout....

WOW...I lost control and emptied my bankroll in just one game. I know that I should control myself, but it seemed so unreal that Team USA was starting to look as elemental school kids trying to play basketball.

Then at the end, they started to score like crazy, and even cover the pointspread(I had them at -32).


would you think that "fixes" are real after this?

sorry for the typo. AU  TT was 40 for the 1st half, not USA.

Well I bet AU plus 33. Did you see how hard USA was playing the last 4 minutes or so... killer "D", then run and shoot a quick 3, more defense. quick 3.

But at the end of the game why did they even shoot it? up by 33! I got lucky and he missed but then AU got the rebound and USA player fought hard for the steal and a shot, once again i got lucky and AU blocked it (suprised they didn't call a foul) I don't care what anyone says, a lot of games are fixed!

All it tells me is the lines were pretty much spot on.  Find something else to do.
