I actually started last night

Memphis -1
Memphis total Points over 97

And over 192 Kings/Suns

3-0 start isn't bad, but i felt out of my comfort zone. Any advice on the plays? I am starting with a roll of $25 to try build up.

No play is ever 100% percent safe thats why its called gambling. Manage your roll pick your spots.

Yeah, it's just all blurry to me right now. I have decent basketball knowledge. But picking the spots is what gets me when it comes to capping for this sport.

Rolling with the Over @ 183.5 on the Bulls/Magic game tonight. Hopefully we roll it out!

Don't be afraid to bet a bad team in a good spot and don't bet a good team in a bad spot.

Best of luck..

Yeah memphis is really good, i love betting on them because they play hard every night, always give effort.  But phoenix is very good at home and Grant Hill will make Rudy happy work for evry point tonight.
