Dion Waiters is doubtful and Portland is the hottest team in basketball coming in with a day to get their legs back under them after a back to back close call in Detroit and dismantling the Sixers in Philadelphia yet the line is only 4.5…  Looks like the Wise Men in Vegas are soliciting Trailblazer dollars to me so I’m siding with them….

 

With that said, put me down for Cleveland plus the chalk at the house for a Nickel please.  Thanks!

wouldn't have any interest betting this Cavs team right now as theyre is clearly some internal issues.  dion waiters is unhappy and wants to be traded.  I don't blame him.  the organization sucks.  do u really want to bet on a young & not-so-talented cavs team to beat the hottest in basketball right now?

Trailblazers all day.  Line should be -8.  Great value here.

You know Dion Waiters is unhappy; I know Dion Waiters is unhappy; in addition he might not play tonight…  Now if you and I know this don’t you think the Wise Men in Vegas knew this as well prior to setting the number… 

 

At any rate, good luck tonight Sir…

just curious as to what the wise men in Vegas know...  If you think Portland is going to win by 8 and the line is -4.5 why wouldnt you bet Portland.  Is the trap based on the fact that they know for whatever reason Portland will not cover 4.5?
anyone who thinks the line stinks and therefore is taking Cle. feel free to respond

$330.00 on the Trailblazers -4.5 for me. I agree there is something real funny about the line, but that in itself could be the trap. I am still betting where I see the value.

I agree that this line is very fishy, however it is very hard to take cleveland here...but the play really is Cleveland or nothing, as Portland's D is extremly porous and they almost lost to the horrific detroit pistions in Motown...The Cavs are a very good team at home as well...All that being said, Cleveland is the way to go here at +5
