or its the teams 5th game in 7 nights.    or this is their 9th game in 13 days.   

these guys are professional athletes.   their bodies are not like your normal human being   they train, lift weights, have specialist etc etc.   

the starters play a total of around 1 hour or less running up and down the court.   and its not even sprinting most of the time

FINALLY!!!!!   I totally agree....

Like you said, they are professional atheletes in SUPREME condition and trained by the best professional trainers in the world.

You're telling me they can't handle a little travel. Okay....so the Mavs got in at 3am this morning. But what did they have to do all day???? NOTHING....so they got to sleep in and get a full nights sleep. Probably had a meeting at the hotel, then relax and rest more. Then go to the arena for shoot around and the game. Why in the world wouldn't a professional athelete be able to handle that.

If the main reason you are betting a game is the "tired angle", that's dumb, IMO.

I'm kinda with you guys.  I know guys who play in 40+ old adult leagues like 3 times a week.  These guys bring it everytime and sometimes play with 5 guys.  That's between working 9 to 5's and God knows what else.  The NBA guys, please!!!!

First of all your saying that just cuz the Mavericks are playing well when in reality its cuz there a deep team. Come at me with this "myth" talk when the Lakers or one of these other teams that have no bench are playing their 5th game in 7 nights and tell me its a myth

I don't think it's a MYTH but I think it is a bit overdone.  That's all!

b2b isnt always a solid angle sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. It's better when theres emotion tied to the team on the b2b though or the team they are facing.

Like if you're coming from a b2b and facing your rival after a letdown loss, i'd fade that all day.

Or if you get a BIG win on the road and the next night you're at home i'd fade that as well. it worked out pretty well for me today. I doubt i'll be fading the grizz tomorrow on this angle though as neither team has a reason to get hyped up for this game.

guys guys guys, MEM did not come back and win the game. GSW threw up and handed to MEM. MEM was flat in the 1h bc of the b2b. The b2b also depends on how old your team is. It may be overdone but it is factor to be dealt with.

They are pro athletes but they are also human. They get tired, they bruise, and they feel pain.

I have said it since day one , B2b is not a valid point , young athletes who are in peak physical condition are not going to be affected by B2b games , especially considering it happens all the time and they are used to it.

Sometimes fatigue MAY be an issue. But more often than not, it isn't. They can't win every game, so when they are on a b2b and let's say they lose, it's not really about the b2b thing. They really CAN NOT win every game. Look at the soccer players. Their physical shape is better than what NBA players have, they play ONCE a week. Out of the 90 minutes of regulation, they barely play 60. ONCE A WEEK. And still no one goes undefeated.

B2B is no 'myth' however, it plays a very small role in NBA handicapping (12%) "tired" is a word that is seldom thought of when it comes to professionalism in any sport, especially the NBA..the key to capping the NBA is travel, and road dogs...

What you seem to be forgetting Is there's a difference of defining the word tired, A normal human will struggle to lick his girlfriends poonanny properly when he Is tired, A basketball player will switch off defensively or have a bad shooting night when he Is tired.

I agree just because a team Is on a b2b doesn't necessarily mean they have a divine right to lose the game but I guarantee you a side that shot 50 % wont shoot that much on a b2b or a side that allowed 35 % shooting defensively will allow more on the b2b game. So I dont think you can say It's a myth.

I disagree, playing b2b games, 3 in 4 over the span of a season takes its toll. Also in a game that's often decided by a few baskets or free throws, "situational spots" give teams a bit of an edge

depends on the TEAM, the COACH, the TRAVEL, and their motives. 

thanks for starting another generic discussion that skips over the most important elements.
