i still think Miami makes a big push but 8 points is ridiculous for a half especially playing in Orlando...

As I went to hammer 8.5 the line went up to +10 at -120 so I laid off. Now to decide if I'm playing Houston tonight or not...

No worries buddy. For your own mindset - when the game is over - let it go. Move on. Happy New Year there in Croatia!!!!

I will tell you what I thought seeing that line - we're all expected to play Miami as to say - they'll come back and win. The same was in Milwaukee. remember? I wanted to take Milwaukee there but chickened out. Well, not today. Only thing that worries me that in Milwaukee the spread did not overshoot the margin (was 12 points Bucks and the spread for the second half was Miami -5.5), and here it does (margin Magic by 6 points and the spread Miami -8.5). I don't know that is for better or the worse - but I like my chances here. And if I'll be wrong - so let it be. I will know how Vegas counts the second halves

I always loved sports and watched them my whole life before i started sports-betting.  What is awesome about sports-betting though is watching every game becomes even more exciting and its like the playoffs every game and every day of year.

I am playing Nets +9. A little late move, DWill caring, and the b2b makes me like this. On Houston with everyone from earlier.

Here on Covers... every blue moon there's a bright person that comes along and shares insightful information.  I usually don't take the time to read 99% of the posts here because honestly... it's bullshit information.  

I have the mindset that I'd rather live and die by my own picks... because ultimately it's your hard earned money.

Once you started talking about Tuesday and Wednesday NBA... and how the "logical" picks come through... you caught my attention to read more.

This season's been a roller coaster ride for me.  Weekdays slaughtering the books only to give it all back on Thursdays.

Breaking even is mentally exhausting.  

I made a decision to ALWAYS take underdogs and the points who have a clear cut shot at winning the ball game.  Hopefully this pans out in the long term.

Favorites will eat you alive in the long run.

Sorry for sidetracking... but your statement that mentions that avoiding a lost game is as good as a win is spot on.

Thanks for your insight... and your time to share.  Best of luck in your continued success and Happy New Years.

Yeah that is very good logic Mavin for that 2nd half bet and with that number I probably would have taken it too.  Its funny when i saw the line right as the half was starting I thought of the Bucks game as well. Heat can be so inconsistent at times and it becomes frustrating this year to bet on them.  Like in the NFL its always good to bet on NE because they almost always show up for games ready to play and score points, so in turn you know what your getting out of them.  Same can be said most of the time for OKC AND SA in basketball.  Sometimes that happens in other ways too like for example when Houston plays against a running team in basketball this year, you can expect with confidence a very high scoring game. Unfortunately at this time I can't put that same faith in the Heat against spreads right now.

You know what i mean with betting on consistent teams Mavin>>??

With NE you can thank Billicheck. He always is blamed for not letting the foot of the pedal.
SA was the best ATS team last year I think and OKC has made it's ATS name on the first halves. Yes buddy, I know what you mean

Miami lost.. I lost all the bets this evening...

Three nights in a row would be too much, I guess...

Not a nice way to start a new year....

BOL on the Rockets and in the OT. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on NFL and will continue to follow your NBA posts.
