the last 2 games easily cleared  the under, and neither of these teams are what you'd call run and gun picks so why so many people on the over?

 

Some of the hottest pickers here were on it like Starks,Lvn capper(I think),Best picksnow were on it..nba capper was also on it.

 

just wondering why, not blaming anyone for getting a pick wrong

Easy to say in hindsight...so you bet because 'hot cappers' were on it even though you didn't agree with it?

No wager on the game but from what I know Orlando shoots the 3 better at home. The line (-3.5) also tells you that the Magic will try and make it a game. The only way they do it is through draining them 3s. I don't think they can force defense in the game with their size and not much support down low so they probably thought Magic would out gun the Pacers.

you dont say that because the last 2 games went under and it will continue that way.

atlanta finished the season on a 9 game over home run. has still to clear that over mark in the playoffs.

It was due to go Over...

Now the Next Game will probably go Over once everyone bets the Under again convinced that the Magic can't score...

and thanks to the other 3 guys who replied, I mean, I just find it amazing these guys that I mentioned who have been on fire, can go over one game, then under the next..most of the time they're right.
