Thinking the Warriors have enough inTank to win one more at home (don't know about spread).

True. I see it like that also. They are just great players and willed the team to the win (and Cousins helped a lot, despite the late game miscues).

NBA Betting / Nurse / View Post

I think one of the keys to the game is when Toronto and Leonard were on a 10-0 run, Nurse takes a TO.

Rookie mistake (CW says you don't take a TO there when the team is surging like that!).

Glad I took the 1 point (crazy game, basketball is :-).

I was almost cheering for GS myself, because of the classless cheering by Toronto fans on Durant injury.

But had Raptors +1, so happy with the result  :-)

Opinions vary (a lot of these guys are young, so I don't make much of it. I'm 56, I remember what it was like when I was like 30 :-)

I have Raptors, but mixed emotions, after that bs cheering when KD went down (but Warriors look like their on life support, despite having the lead, to be honest).

Don't like Raptors fans cheering when Durant went down. Show some class, the man is a great player!

(puts a 'damper' on one's enthusiasm, to see that!).

Toronto will bring the 1st Championship to Canada tonight.

Amazing how one man can move the spread by 4 or 5 points (Durant).

As great as he is (and I believe he's the best player in NBA right now), one man isn't going to 'save' the Warriors!

It will be close, but the Raptors will win :-)

No excuse for a team like this, in a Country as big and resourceful as ours!

World Cup? You're talking World Cup? (my Jim Mora impression I guess :-)

Have to come a lot better than this!

Streak Survivor / Long odds / View Post

I recently asked a Mathematics Wiz, what are the odds of winning this?

He said you are more likely to die in a given day than ever do this :-)

So to those few who have, I tip my hat :-)

Trump.

But give him credit, he knows how to play 'the game' :-)

I've been a member of this for almost 16 years (some 5,000+ Survivor Picks'),

and yet I'm still a Rookie :-)

I guess they base it on number of posts, but that is 'flawed' somehow (I could have just continuously posted idiotic bs all these years, I guess :-)

I don't really care that much, but to call me a Rookie after all this time is really weird :-)

Looks like something I'd see in downtown Dayton on a Saturday night :-)

Am I the only one who thinks mma/ufc is just a notch above street fighting?

Guys may be tougher, but boxing takes more skill, no doubt about it :-)

it's just over half over...

To be honest, I think my mind 'slipped a gear' somehow (you were correct, but I had some 'weird' idea it was close to over-when it actually had 2 months left :-)
The stress of life, I think.

Congrats to the Winners, a person does deserve it if they win this!

This game reminds me for some reason of what the philosopher Alan Watts says about our 'conscious mind':

It has nothing to do with what happens in the world
(And all one can go on is 'stats' in this case, and the stats indicated a closer game. Denver had won 12 str at home, 3/4 vs GS @ home, also had a same overall record).
Not surprised GS won, but am surprised this is such a 'beatdown' :-)

Ultimate Race / NFL / View Post

I didn't think I'd win this since long ago :-)

But I did achieve one of the best individual records I've ever had in any sport in any contest:

20-1-2 in the NFL.

So always look for the positive, I guess (I do seem to have figured out the NFL, just a little :-)

True. Didn't mean to sound negative :-)

I can just tell when my 'run' is starting to fade a little (I never give up, so don't mistake it for that!).

Weird how it goes, but I'm a 'streaky' type bettor, and have (thankfully) figured it out a little

(like today. I won on actual money (had Oregon and Northwestern, amongst others. But somehow managed to go 0-4 in this contest today :-)

I like these type contests a lot though, and would like to see more!

Looks like the guys at the top got this. And they deserve it, they have strung together some nice wins!
I think I did the best I could, just not quite good enough to overcome!

Thanks, Covers and Fanduel, it is a fun contest!

Weirdly enough, I'm undefeated in the NFL in this contest (13-0-2).
Don't ask me why couldn't tell ya :-)
Only thing I will say is I'm a (slightly) better handicapper than I was like 20 years ago or whatever when I started here on Wagerline :-)

Tough competition on here, so makes it interesting! :-)

(More than the money-which is nice, don't get me wrong-I think just finally winning a Title in all my years with Covers would be cool.cool
