Honestly, like the odds here. CP3 is the best PG in the league, and with Blake down low and a good role players off the bench, why not throw $100 on it? What do you guys think?

Risky, but worth a shot... The clips are tougher than the jazz and the spuz may be a little rusty and clips could steal HCA

I definitely think it will be a close series. I remember when the Clippers completely blew the game at SA... they should of won the season series 2-1

Take the $100 and go have dinner. At least you'll get something out of the money.

I think this series between Spurs vs, Clippers is very close match-up!

CP3 vs Parker
Griffin vs Duncan
Butler vs Manu Gino.

I picked Clippers to win the series with my friend at work--
here are my picks
Ok City wins the series
Clippers wins the series
Miami wins the series
Philly wins the series

I hope for push!! Breaking Even!

Although the value is there, I believe Spurs may sweep them, or maybe 4-1...come on now, did anyone watch the Clips/Grizz matchhup??...If they don't have epic comeback in game 2(?) then this could be the Grizz...Griffin is nothing more than a dunker, zero outside shot, no one on the Clips can hit FT's, and CP3 is banged up...Spurs will route the Clips everygame...I would take the Spurs bench against this weak behind, badly coached, baby of a team in a close series...w Parker,Ginoboli, and Duncan, this will be over quickly imho...GLTA

Waste of $100

Spurs don't even need to play their starters to beat clippers.. they can do it with their deep bench that's way better than clipper starters(except Paul)

Blake is the most overrated piece of crap in the nba.. this guy cant play basketball. He can only dunk..

Line is +1200 but it should be +5000.. reason it's not is because of media hype because Griffin can dunk

I thought about this too...until I came back to reality.
I will give you +1000000 if you can guess exactly what I weigh and how tall I am, my hair color, and my dogs name.

  Good call. Crazy odds.  Worth $100. Worth a dime to me.  Got Spurs +450 to win title for 3k.  This 12-1 seems ridiculous, no matter how good Spurs are.  Seen way more amazing things happen.

Isnt Blake having knee problems?
Would be really surprised if SA loses this series,plus they are rested and Clippers comming off a beat down series,think its a wasted 100,but in playoffs strange things happen,dont see this being one.
GL to you.

I wouldn't go 100, but 50 is something I could do.  My local is so scared of the Clippers winning they won't even offer me a series wager.

I would be surprised too, but it's hard to pass on that number.

got the Clips +1500 last night when it opened on BM... and i already have a little bit on the Clips to win the West from the start of the season... series price is currently down to +1100 on BM, and i am pretty sure it will be down to +1000 or less by gametime...

this price is ludicrous, and they will give the Spurs all they can handle... anybody calling for a sweep is over-rating the Spurs, big time!  those pointing out that LA struggled with Memphis (even though they didn't have HC for the series), must be forgetting that Memphis eliminated the Spurs last year...

this is still the Spurs, they are still old, and the Clippers are a team that never gives up...

good bet my friend... i think at some point you will have a chance to hedge part of that bet back at very good value, once LA steals game 1 or 2 in SA...

I don't see any value mostly because it's a bet you pretty much can't win.

i would not suggest betting against them in this series, for any price.

If you want to donate money give it to charity. A bet on the Clips for the series is a waste of money.

Exactly ossgor.  

Don't make the mistake of over-reacting to the Spurs 1st round loss to the Grizz last season, that has nothing to do with this series.

Many made that mistake thinking how easy the Grizz would beat Clipps because of last year, last year has nothing to do with this year.

And if it does, it would awaken the Spurs to be sure it does not happen again. It pretty much garaunties they will not get complacent and let up after a slaughter in round 1.

i just put down $100 on clippers to win in six games +4000
and 100 to win in 7 games +5000

dont care about the whole "is best to go to dinner" happy stuff...

just won a couple of really big wagers so thats what im doing.

i think to win in six and seven (you could go for 50 dlls each) offers great value as i believe if clippers win it wont be in 4 or 5 games so that +1,200 becomes irrelevant.
