under 208.5 in houston 1.1k
many angles to that pick and i cant describe them all - i will say thou that i'd be surprised if they scored over 200
under 196.5 in ny 1.1k
too many trends support that over under team totals after the long trip for ny
Under 208.5 HOU Rockets - UTAH Jazz
Under 196.5 NY Knicks - ORL Magic
Again man, zero disrespect to ya. My questioning your reasoning on the games yesterday was actually because I thought the Ny game was going to go over. People thought NY coming home of road trip would have tired legs, however the previous 5 rd trips of 3 games +, Ny had come home and scored over 100 in each. That along with my last pick regarding Orl having scored near 100 in last 6 rd games.
Your a great capper, no doubt. However again, if you give your reasoning as too many things to point out, what can anyone learn from that? I understand your not pickin many games, wait for the right lines you see to be most favourable. However I do see most people writing at least 2-3 sentences regarding their own "why" they like the game. I've seen many times someone posting for first/ second time and more than one person jumps out to explain to the newbies that there must be reasoning behind the pic , may I ask, are you excluded from reasoning for your record? I'm doing my best to be conservative, picking less, Smart picks, however if your the " best" in this thread % wise and you post no reasoning, how does anyone else learn from what you maybe thought and misinterpreted in your analysis of the game? I'm not dissing you in anyway way man, just asking that if you could post some actual reasoning, then for those trying to learn, can maybe learn from the best at what you look at, what decides your pick, and maybe all can learn from that. I've posted 25 games, 12-13 record is what I'm at. However anyone can look at my posts and maybe decipher what I seen, how I seen it, things people can read to decipher. Just asking you could post actual reasoning aside from too many things to write. All I learn from that is perhaps you were not confident in the pic to post your reasoning. However seeing you on the under last night made me hesitant taking the over, now I question myself why? Well I don't know actually, there's too many reasons to write down I guess.
I'm not zeroing in on you here, even those that copy and paste trends and say take over, well they should still give some analysis of their thoughts. I can copy and paste also, but what does that help us learn? To copy and be happy with it? If it's wrong then we are simply mislead by trends? There will be trends favouring both ways of every game however if we still don't write our own thoughts on it, nobody will ever learn from others thoughts. Someone copying 10 trends and posting I like over because of these lol. Good reasoning.
I guess I'm calling everyone out. If you can't structure one o 2 sentences behind your pic, how does anyone learn from your own personal thoughts.
