That all depends which way line will move,early lines favor bettors...vegas makes most line mistakes early and you need to feel out the way line runs and bet according o that...but you don't wait late to pick on most picks!!

You guys bring up valid points I guess I just like to wait. For example im waiting for the the public to bring down the total in the celtics game. Call me crazy but I think I like the over tonight

When looking at the Nuggets Kings game all I can think about is 1/16/13 and how I tried to middle the game with a -12.5 line even though I was thinking of middling the total- the total line that day if my memory serves my right was 214 and the score was 93-121 nuggets at home- I was trying to middle to open spots with by buying two points on each spread- that did not work- it would have been perfect on the spread and that was my initial lean and then thought the game would go over to 216-217 and screw the uper under 216 B+2 that being said the line at -5 is very fishy- sure Kings are at home and are coming off two high scoring games 4 high scoring games one of which was the hard fought loss against the Heat- 129-141 - (mind you they have also scored 100 in 9 out of their last 10 games and won 4 of those 10 shoot outs) This is setting up to be either the perfect setup where both teams crap out or an explosion of 230-235 pts. Denver relies on fast break and scoring in the paint the Kings rely on the 3 ball this plays into the hands of the Nuggets because if they start missing 3s the nuggets will start making layup after layup after layup... The Kings would like to play spoiler and revenge is on their minds- but that alone does not win you games- do they have the tools to beat the Nuggets offensive plan- the nuggets could be considered tired after the late game last night but that probably only translates to helping the over in this case. This could be a good parlay of nuggets -5 and over 223- just leans but thought I do my write up now and watch some line movements- on my board I had Nuggets -3 total 218 the lines are above those I have so maybe that is a sign.

I've tried both in my years. Early betting is my preference as of now for a few reasons. First it allows me the largest window for capping without distraction, I work shifts so I'm already awake or up early and time for myself closer to game time or even after tip off is limited.Also I find myself liking more favorites second half and especially the run for the playoffs so I want to grab the early 'bad' line.

Under 213.5 LA Lakers - OKC Thunder

DEN Nuggets -5

Think we may all be on this one.  Although the Sixers have been in games as of late and the news has been talking about resting the aging Celtics.  I do not believe they will rest after a couple days off.  I think the Celtics finish the season much as the Spurs have played the season.  Taking good spots to rest their guys but not ever shutting it down completely.  I see that the Celtics play the Pacers tomorrow night but I think veteran teams know they have to win games they should win.  I'll take the Celtics with the short line.

Just basing this play off of what I've witnessed the past couple days.  There have been some contests that are similar to playoff battles, i.e. Thunder/Clippers (which I played the over and hit).  This total is set over the total of that game.  My thinking is as follows: Thunders/Clippers game barely went over total and Clippers run more than the Lakers, and the Clippers seriously struggled on defense during the first half (which is similar to a Lakers team that struggles most of the time on defense); I expect great playoff like atmospheres when a combination of James, Bryant, or Durant are playing each other.  Ref trends seem to suggest Under as well.

Said last night I thought the Nuggets were a solid play (hope at least one of us crushed that line).  Line movement makes me confident the Kings won't play spoiler in this spot.  I think the Kings play a similar style to the Nuggets.  I chose to look where the best match-ups exist.  I think Lawson (reigning western conference player of the week) will dominate Thomas at the point.  I think offensively this will go like the Thunder/Clippers game this Sunday where Westbrook/Durant made the extra pass when drawing the extra defender.  I honestly do not see the Kings hanging here and I see Cousins getting shut down as McGee has been on a tear lately.  I wouldn't play it but I think the Over is a risky play in my opinion.

I like the Celtics to cover and heres why. Last 5 Gms scored 100, gave up 97, while the 76ers have scored 90 and given up 95. BOS has won last 2 vs jazz and GS and are still fighting for post season, 76ers lost last 9 out of 10. BOS has gotten four days off, enough time to repair and motivate for the post season push.
Early lean. What say thee? I'm scared to wait too long and see the line go up more...

We should always ask the RIGHT Questions when Picking a Game/Team and look at the Value and how strong you think the play is and ask yourself why you are making that pick based on your study and introspecting on pick! If you cant have a good reason to pick that play ( YOU SHOULD NOT PICK OR PLAY IT! ) DONT EVER PICK JUST TO PLAY! you will go broke.....the thing top cappers do is study numbers and teams and info and make strong picks only! so remember when you look at a game ....ask the RIGHT questions as to why you are making that pick! Expect losses and account for that in you plan of action/goals! 
treat this as a Job! DO the homework ! nothing is worse than paying for a pick and losing!! LOL that is dumb as it gets!
I can live with a loss if I make the pick! and if i lose i ask my self what did i do wrong! and learn from it and grow!! 
This Gem you need to read and think about!!

“That which we persist in doing becomes easier to do, not that the nature of the thing has changed but that our power to do has increased.”


GL to all in ur picks!!
