1) I always bet the spread.

2) Bookies use stats and numbers to make odds. You can't beat them at that. It's there job and every bet is worth millions to them and hundreds to you (they got that on lock). There is no magic number. Teams play differently depending on who they play.

3) I look at key one-on-one match-ups, defense match-ups, and offense match-ups. I also look at player and team form.  

This is the first time I've posted on here. I posted my bets for today in another thread: 
http://www.covers.com/postingforum/POST01/showmessage.aspx?spt=22&sub=101526064


I always bet point spreads:

Indiana over Miami
Houston over Lakers
Brooklyn over Philly

3:0

Record so far: 

3:0


Wednesday bets:

Rockets over Hornets - Hornets don't have the defense experience to stop harden cutting nor the perimeter defense to stop the scoring. Nor can the Hornets score enough to keep up.

Denver over Orlando - Denver is tough to get close to at home and Miller will be too much for Jameer. Faried and JaVale over Vucevic. And Iguodala defending Afflalo. Should be a lock.

Boston over Phoenix - Rondo is back and the Celts are playing well and healthy. Phoenix have a back to back road game.

Would be wary to people jumping on:

GSW - for them to win you are betting Lee will score over Gasol's reach and that the GSW backcourt will score over Conley and Allen (best defensive backcourt in the league). Too risky to me. I think memphis will hold GSW like Orlando did.

TOR - risky in that they are well matched teams.

No offense bro, i see the sweep yesterday. but this is the nba. Thats what people said about indiana last night. Oddsmaker will make you want to think that way. But the ball is round, so BOL on your plays.

Clearly no one wins every night. I have been betting all season and have been up as much as 4000 - currently I'm back to 2500. It goes up and down. 

I will keep putting up my tips. I bet on them.

So far today.

Phoenix seem to have brought their best game yet and are still down, hopefully they tire from the back-to-back in the second half. This looks good atm.

Hornets playing well, need Rockets to win by 3 to cover. They are never out of it with their offence though so I'll wait to the end,

Really? I'm in Australia, different lines perhaps? Would've taken the -8.5 if it were here too so yeah I got very lucky.
