Don't know about the over, but Lakers 2nd half is

Already on them for the game -3.5 and as the last leg of a couple ml parlays, but I almost can't help myself from adding more. Should be a double digit win

Agreed.  I'm not adding any more to this game.. but if I did it would be 2h Lakers -1.5.

You showed more restraint than me

I'm willing to let my day be decided by this outcome. It's either very good, or a small loss...already a few W's in the bank for leeway. Feel good about this one

you pick scary games.  LOL

miami gets to go home and being pissed, I am scared to fade them.  

The line is reflecting due to miami getting off a few days of bye and now they are at home and miami must hold their first home game opener again. 

SA has not won an away game as of yet.  They might just win SU so they can break this skunk but I'm not betting on the due theory. 

If I were to play to chase the action, it will be a small cricket bet for me on Mia or no play.  Gotta see what's up first before I place my bet. 

Orlando can win the game but the spread is just too high.   To lay double digits, a team needs 100+ points and Orlando qualifies since their last 3 away games were all over 100+ points.  Maybe no play for me but I'll see how generous of a gambler I will get by playing the dog to win with a backdoor junk. 

now back to our game.  Lets go lakers and under

Mike Brown should have used a timeout 2 or 3 possessions earlier.  Sitting here on my couch I could see the frustration building on the Lakers.  Nobody shoots well when they're frustrated.  And defensive frustration only leads to fouls.  Gotta call timeout the instant things turn that way.  Brown let them play through it too long there and now he's paying for it down 2.

6pts in 9 minutes.

Needless to say this is not what I was expecting.

7 points in 12 minutes.  That was the worst shooting quarter I've ever seen.  23 total points!  I'm speechless...

Los Angeles is now in the bonus with 5 minutes to go.  This could be the difference.

Those were two very bad offensive and defensive possessions for the Lakers.  Got to root for a miss here by the Lakers.  OT anyone?

10:35 EST - Los Angeles Lakers -3.5 (-110) 

I won't even begin to explain the number of ways this bet should have won.  The Lakers just can't put up points when Kobe is having an off night.  Fisher was far enough behind the line to get 4 points for that shot.. wish they had given him 4, I would have covered.


'11-12 NBA:  19-18 (51.5%)  +1.50u

First time all night we want them to miss and Fisher nails it from the parking lot.

Tough loss
