Only 14 seasons a player scored 20+ at age 35 or older on Feb 1 and played 50+ games.

Kareem and Karl Malone had 8 of those seasons, Jordan 2,  Dirk, Lenny Wilkens, Alex English, Elgin Baylor 1 each.

Kareem and Malone  had 9 of them

Any bet is no action if it is played on a different day or location than when it was placed

I'd say there is a 50% chance we see game 7.  Blues play better on the road for some reason.  Last time Bruins lost at home, they won the next game by 5...

9 = West Virginia State

Pick someone from the Warriors. 


Jerry West 1969 - first time they awarded a finals MVP and only time a player on the losing team won.

39+ points in 5 of the games.  He had 42/13/12 in game 7 and they lost by 2 to the Celts

You make no sense

The max bet on him losing is probably less than $500, he is winning 50K+ per show, why would he lose on purpose?  And a large bet on him to lose the day he loses would be very suspicious and he (or his surrogate) would come under a lot of scrutiny.

Series lines don't change much until a home team loses.  GSW still has 3 more chances to win in Toronto, and game 1 they had a lot of rust.

I have no stats, but my gut says No. 

Big favorites are usually big favorites because they are starting a dominant pitcher, not because they are facing a terrible pitcher.

A lot of great point guards who had more complete games (defense, rebounding).  The league right now is a shooting 3s league.  Coaches used to want the ball to go the post every possession and only shoot 3s as a last resort, so it is impossible to compare.  Also, how would Curry do if he had Pippen hand-checking him all game?

To be the best, you have to guard the opposing team's best player, and also be a great offensive player.  Curry doesn't do that, but Kawhi does.

Lebron was the best, but this argument is for right now.    Lebron is 34.  Not too many players have played at a high level at age 35 and older.  Jordan's last really good season was age 34 (but he retired right after).  Kobe's last good season was also 34.

He should have a 50/50 shot of making the team ...Supposedly he looked good at the recent rookie camp ...They said he was the first one there everyday and the last one to leave ....OTA'S start this week , I'll post what I hear/read ....


 in the city of  Buffalo can get you a decent 3-4 bedroom house for under 80k ...  




Tyree wasn't staying at UB regardless , he was planning to transfer to Nebraska or elsewhere

Even the practice squad pays 7500/week.  

Tyree isn't the healthiest QB.  A team like Nebraska might have wanted him to run more.  I heard his injury history scared away a lot of teams (same with A Johnson).  One more injury, and maybe he doesn't even get an NFL look...

Not all of us are millionaires like the OP who pisses on 75K, but that is a lot of money for a lot of people, and a lot of former QBs would pay 75K to get the shot that Tyree is getting

Hardaway and Mamoud Abdul Rauf are the 2 best

Should Be hedge THE BUCKS bet that pays$5k ????? 

 


I think the Bucks are a much better team and at home.  I would still hedge, but not all at once.  If the Bucks are up 2-0 or 2-1 then the odds go from +250 to +600.   You don't want to hedge too much, but that is easy for me to say because it isn't my 5K on the line, and if Toronto steals game 1 the series will be pickem.  Good luck with whatever you decide to do...when and how much to hedge is probably the toughest decision in sports betting.

DU, couldn't agree more, especially with Tyree's injury history, going back for a senior year would be a huge gamble.

I was told Nebraska was interested in him as a transfer...

I think Tyree has about a 75% chance to make the Bills.  He is a really good guy to have as 3rd string, because it is possible NFL coaches can fix his flaws.

The strength of the Bulls next year is Running Back.  They have 4 very strong RBs coming back.  It is the rest of the roster that needs work...

DU, that kind of reminds of the trades people used to want to make, where they'd package 4 or 5 bums for 2 star players...I forgot if it was the Sabres, Bills or both...

You'd probably have to wait til before the trade deadline and hope McCoy is having a really good year to get a 3rd, but then the Bills would only trade him if they were not in playoff contention.

NFL trades are more about contracts than talent, a lot of the time

Derek Anderson retired so Tyree is 3rd string right now.  

75K is more than he would make in the CFL.for a whole season.  

It isn't life-changing money for everyone, but it is for some people.  I don't know what his background is....I brought it up more as an indication that the Bills like him and will probably have a roster spot for him which would be something like 500K/year...

I would dump him and save the 6.5 million.  Maybe wait until camp to see if has any tread on the tires...

Some of the local media I saw don't like this draft much, which is probably the best possible sign it is a good one...

Tyree got 75K guaranteed from the Bills, which is pretty good for UFA.

Bulls also had Drew Willy who was a 4 year starter and who won a MAC championship.  He made a couple NFL rosters before a decent CFL career.

Even if Tyree didn't declare I am told he would have been a graduate transfer, so the team was screwed anyways.

check play by play on April 17, Bos/Ind game, Line was Bos favor    7-1/2.  Score was 94-91 with 12.1 sec left in the 4th quarter,. Ind had possession of the ball   . Final score was 99-91.

Another sample is: How can  1 quarter score total of both teams is 70 pts, and other quarter score only 31 pts. Please don't tell me they made adjustment on defend.  

Pay attention on the shot clock to see how quick they shoot the ball or how late on the shot clock before the player try to shoot the ball.

There are 1200 NBA games.  Statistically speaking, there are going to be a lot of oddities.  Flip a coin 1200 times, and there will be 10 or 12 heads in a row.  Would you then say the coin is biased?
