Over seems to be the play, but I'm riding the Under.  Game 7 & the nerves will show just like Game 6, IMO.  These teams know each other too well after playing 10 games vs each other.  The Home team has won all 10 games & it shouldn't change for the 11th, but will they cover the 5.  I don't see it.

Agreed.  It'll take a bit to get them used to each other.  I also think MKG will go all out tonite, but it won't be enough.  Toronto gave them a run, but a 2nd game will give Indy their legs.

Bulletin Board Material at best if you call that an adjustment?  No coach is satisfied until they're hoisting the trophy in the air, Smart Guy.  What are you talking about with this "satisfied" mess?Coaches don't adjust until they lose, plain & simple.  You watchin' too many press conferences & believing what they say.  They'll play the same way they've played until OKC wins.

Don't agree, sorry. There's no way I adjust anything until you can prove to me that you can beat me.  "In-Game Adjustments" occur all the time. .DUH!!!

Really, they're 6-4 in 4th qtrs & the 3 losses were by a point or two. They were only outplayed this last game in the 4th.  And I don't agree that they're to young to win.

So with that logic, is it OK to say, the Thunder lost that game more than SA won it?   If so, don't agree at all.  Never heard of teams making a adjustment after a win.  Outside them not turning the ball over, what other adjustments do they need?

OKC & under for me.  Stop Ginobili & OKC would've been up 1-0.  No way Ginobili comes off the screens the way he did on Sunday.

I'm still trying to figure out who's going to guard D-Wade?  If Bradley was there, I'd be on the 8 all day, but Ray Allen?.  KG is the only healthy one out of the Allen & Pierce & he's hurtin' as well.  Whatever they're going to take to get their bodies ready for this game, I'd like to buy a couple of cases.  The way Wade & Bron are playing right now & with KG, Ray, & Pierce all hurting, it's hard to pass up the 8.  Bradley would be starting if he was available & Ray would come off the bench.

I'm on the OVR as well.  I see MIA getting to the Century Mark. And if they get there, Boston should be somewhere in range.

I like Harvard as well.  St Joes gave them a scare on Saturday which should put 'em back on track against a weaker opponent.

That's what I'm banking on, the team that showed up against Xavier.  The "Vandy first game on the road" factor came into play as well, but I'm leaning more towards L'Ville's injuries & they find the open man in Rick Pitino's zone defense.

Care to share one nugget as to why they'll stick around?  They haven't done a thing to make me believe they'll be under the number & this is there first road game.

Creighton hasn't played a decent team this season.  No way they win in SD.  That's not an easy arena to road win in.  SDSU continues to roll. .

UNLV ML

It's actually been the last 3 times they've played.  But I'm on board as well.  What I saw on Saturday was unbelievable.  I don't think they shoot the lights out like Saturday, but I think they continue to shoot well.  My reasoning is they've always shot poorly in the Orleans arena whenever they've played there.  Although it's 5 miles from the campus, they always had problems shooting from the outside.  Mike Moser will be the key since we haven't had a player that could possibly be a lottery pick when his career is done @ UNLV in many many years. . .

UNLV -2.5

Taking the points.  I was @ the game & UNLV wanted it more that night.  With them being @ home & coming off an upsetting lost, Roy Williams has enough film to get these boys back on track. There has been some talk since the game about Kendall Marshall's defense, I'm pretty sure he wants to put those critics to rest tonite. .

UNC -7

On board as well.  Their standout PG, Momo Jones, transferred to Iona & they haven't been the same ever since.  Very young team.

Eat & breathe basketball especially UNLV since I live in LV.  No way
they hang with UNC.  Our bigmen are outmatched & we don't shoot the
ball consistently from the outside to even stick close to that
number. I'm all over the 8 . .

College Football > Houston at Tulane (11/10/2011) > View Post
It all boils down to Houston's scoring because UAB & Tulane have been trash the entire season for C-USA. They haven't let up on the gas against any weak opponent & I don't see anything changing tonite.  The only thing that factors for me is the "DOME".  Are they capable of putting up those points inside.  Outside of that, you'd have to convince me that Tulane can keep it close.

HOUSTON -35

Flacco's suspect.  Didn't realize how bad of a QB he is until the Monday night Jackonsville Game.  These teams are to familiar with each other.  It's hard to bet against the under when these two teams play.  And @ss whoopin' they put on Pittsburgh out the gates won't happen again.  Tomlin will have them ready for this one. 

Pitt -3/Under

After 3 road games, home cooking is all they need.  However, SD has a ton of injuries.  Can Rivers keep it close & turn it into a shootout?  The cheese heads will represent well @ tomorrow's game.  Wouldn't surprise me if it feels like a home game for them in the World's Most Beautiful City.

There's some pretty good points in this thread.  When it comes to the PATS, I usually bet them or not bet at all.  I can see Eli picking apart this defense as the Pats are 2nd to last in total defense in front of Indy & last in the league in Pass Defense.   The Giants defense is no better & Brady is the QB.  My lean is definitely for the OVER, due to the atrocious defense these teams have.

Eagles for me.  Yeah, Philly hasn't figured out their run defense as it's still a work in progress.  I do believe Vick finally figures out the Cover 2 & this isn't the same Chicago Defense we see dominating the past couple of years.  If you can get Philly @ 7.5, buy the hook. 

Philly -7.5(buy the hook)

Amen to that!!!! Well the UNDER is falling like no tomorrow so I'm staying away.  However, TEBOW in the BLACK HOLE???  Oakland's defense is gonna have a field day with this guy.  a TD's a gift.  I wonder if John Fox is gonna run that Florida QB draw plays again.  To me, he's on the verge of losing this locker room if not already. .

I think the low spread due to the travel & game time, but that's just me. However, I do think the line is definitely suspect.  Wash offense stinks, they'r defense is sucks again the run.  As I would like to SF, I can't seem to figure this one out as I think it should be at least a TD spread
